Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little stove I was getting ready to buy the Snowpeak stove of similar design. The girl at REI suggested this one and said the staff liked it better. I got home and played with it. It has amazing simmer control, extreme heat output on high, and is much more stable than I imagined it could be. Just cooked up a pot of percolated coffee to test it out. The coffee percolator is a bit topheavy, but this thing held it solid. Great Buy!!! Can't wait to use it in the woods. It's replacing an old MSR white gas Whisperlite; this thing is soooo much smaller and convenient. That white gas stove was a pain in the butt and didn't simmer at all. This thing fits in the cup of my GSI Backpacker mug, too. So it's a huge improvement. The height of the burner above the canister is nice and protects the canister from heat, but it does make it a bit harder to use a windscreen. But that's the only knock on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Something seriously wrong. On day two of my current AT through hike the ignitor started shorting to the center column. By day five the burner could not even boil water in 40 degree Fahrenheit temperatures. I tried four different fuels with no better results. I packed the stove in a hard case for protection with some other minor sundries so as to not be jostling about. There is no way I could possibly recommend this stove for anyone considering other canister stoves such as MSR pocket rockets, soto's, and cheap knockoffs were running just fine and on canisters I borrowed to test with this burner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Updated Review So I finally had a chance to use it in the woods. And, of course, that's when it decided to quit. The stove itself actually works fine. But the piezo igniter is broken. I got one for my brother in law for his birthday and he went with us. His worked fine at first, but his piezo igniter also broke on the third day of the trip. Fortunately we had a lighter with us, so it wasn't all that bad. Make sure you get a good sized windscreen because this thing is extremely vulnerable to wind. Other than that, the stove is still very nice. Just not very durable. If I were to recommend one, I would suggest you try the Snowpeak. They seem to have better quality control.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design, Crapped out on day 2 of a 4 day hike This is the 2nd Mighty Mo I've had and both were unreliable. On the first one, the ignitor went out on day 2, so I was glad I had a lighter with me. I got a replacement stove, and on this one, the ignitor died (again) then the whole stove stopped working on the 2nd day of a 4 day trip. There seems to be a serious design flaw with the placement of the ignitor. It actually shorts out on the stem of the stove. You can see the spark well below the burner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove for the size I have only used this once and I am already impressed. There is great simmer control and it can fit into my pocket. I will be getting a windscreen though because I was on a beach and it was very windy- so it did take awhile to boil, but that was not the fault of the stove. I tested it indoors before I left and it boiled water in no time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issues with igniter Overall this is a great little stove....as long as you do not mind the igniter not working. I have been through two of these and both igniters stopped working within a few uses. You can see the spark below the burner but it does not make it to the gas. Both of these units were only used during kitchen trials and never saw the trail. Other than the igniter failure the stove performs great. You have excellent burner control from flame thrower to sizzle. Boils water almost as fast as a Sol and is super light. FWIW, I have an original Jet Boil that is still going strong and a Sol that has 50+ trail days. Both are fully operational. I am a big fan of Jet Boil but it seems like they missed the mark with the igniter. If you don't mind using a lighter then go for it....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simmer control works great! After trying to cook spaghetti, and then tomato sauce with Jetboil with regular valve (basically on/off, or full on /3/4 on/off), I am very happy that the valve on the Mighty Mo works as advertised (9 turns stop to stop instead of 4), and coupled with the regulator function, I could throttle tomato sauce to just barely simmering, and heat it without burning. Ditto pasta. I got the 1.5L fluxring pot, and 1/4 box spaghetti broken in half works! My Jetboil Flash will now be consigned to coffee duty, or boiling water for freeze dried dinners, as it was intended. While I sauté and sizzle under perfect control with Mighty Mo...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great features poor manufacturing I originally purchased this stove for a backcountry fishing trip, thankfully we brought other sources of food that didn't need to be heated up. The stove fired up great the first 2 or 3 times then the ignition quit working. When the stove actually ignites it works great, it is super easy to control and maintain a boil or simmer, but unfortunately I am on my 3rd mightymo because of the same ignition issue. If Jetboil could fix this issue this stove would be fantastic and I would for sure recommend it, but until then I'd say save your money and look for other options

Questions & Answers

Once attached to fuel source can it be removed before canister is empty then reattached for a later use?

Asked by: travels with lily
Yes. Turn valve of stove to off. Allow stove to cool (or be careful not to touch hot parts) and spin it right off the canister. The canister valve will seal, or at least it should! May get a small pfsft of fuel gas as you actually separate stove from canister, but that is it.

I have enjoyed Jet Boil stoves for years, even took one across the Sierras. My question is now at age 72 and desiring to lighten my pack the Mighty Mo seems perfect yet have read of ignitor problems; is it real? if so, is there a fix out?

Asked by: hiknsolo
Jetboil had an issue with the ignitor and has since been resolved on their MightyMo's. All current stock does not have this issue. Jetboil requested that if you have an issue with the ignitor from an earlier version, to contact them directly for a resolution.

How stable is the MightyMo? I saw that Jet Boil recommended using their 1.5L flux ring pot with it, but I was wondering if any camping cookware can sit on it without problems.

Asked by: mrtommyb
The MightyMo is very stable for how small it is. Any flat bottom backpacking cookware can be used on this stove.

What is the difference between this and the minimo exactly? I'm not sure which one to get for dayhikes and overnight hikes lasting about two days

Asked by: Chris
​The MiniMo comes with a 1 liter cooking cup that sits on top of the stove. This give you a completely integrated cook system. The MightyMo is just a stove which requires a pot/pan that is sold separately. The MightyMo weighs 3.3 ounces while the MiniMo weighs 14 ounces.

Does an older Jet Boil cup fit on the Mini Mo burner? I

Asked by: Backpacker's Club
The MightyMo Backpacking Stove is compatible with the FluxRing Fry Pan and FluxRing Pot from Jetboil, in addition to any flat bottom backpacking cookware.

How does this compare to the MSR Superfly with Autostart? I am looking for heat output, simmer control and piezo function comparisons. I have had fair success with the MSR other than the pot support design.  Thanks, Austin

Asked by: Trek and Trail Project
Both stoves have the same amount of heat output and will boil a liter of water in the same amount of time. Additionally, they both have excellent simmer control. Both stoves have a similar push-button igniter with the same functionality.

I have to ask, I have ultimately the same thing which i got from walmart for 15$ or so. So just asking is it worth it to buy this? I understand it has simmer control and im sure it's lighter, but is it worth it for the simmer control and few ounce diff?

Asked by: Shaun D
Unfortunately, without knowing what stove you are comparing this to we cannot make an accurate comparison. However, this stove does have simmer control, a regulator, and several other features that make this stove an excellent value.
