So, what about the Jetboil Sol's cup? Is it only good for boiling water? Or can it do a little more?
I thought I'd find out.

|One of my typical trail meals, "Sapporo Ichiban" ramen noodles with dried veggies.|
Now, the instructions on these noodles say to first boil the water, then add the noodles, and then to cook these noodles over low heat for three minutes. Low heat for three minutes? Can the Jetboil do it? Let's try.
OK, so in go our noodles.

|Nicely re-hydrated noodles and vegetables. Yum!|
And, best of all,
|I encountered no burnt on food when simmering noodles for multiple minutes in a Jetboil Sol cup|
So, is the Jetboil Sol's cup able to be used for more than just boiling water?

Again, please note that I used the aluminum Jetboil Sol cup. This report does not cover the titanium version.
Thanks for joining me on another Adventure in Stoving.
