Gear Review: Jetboil CrunchIt Fuel Can Recycling Tool

Ok- I just bought the new CrunchIt  from Jetboil to recycle a cache of old empty butane canisters that have been sitting around my gear room. First impression.......why didn't I think of that!  Super simple to use, I just threaded the CrunchIt on to an EMPTY canister (the CrunchIt will purge some fuel out of the canister- if it doesn't stop after a few seconds stop and use the canister until empty), then press down onto the canister to puncture it.  Kind of works like a can opener!  With a hole in the canister it is ready to go to the recycling bin. Simple- light weight and actually fun to do.  What a great answer to a problem that has existed for years!  Pick one up at Down Wind Sports or at Down Wind Sports online for only $10.49

Enjoy butane canister convenience without creating landfill waste, thanks to Jetboil's CrunchIt™ Butane Canister Recycling Tool. Safe, fool-proof, and compliant with recycling standards, CrunchIt™ punctures Jetboil Jetpower (and certain other) butane fuel canisters, rendering them recycling bin ready and headed for re-melt and reformation. Do it right- CrunchIt™ !

Recycling rules vary, please check with your local municipal or county waste facility to ensure full compliance with recycling regulations in your region.

  • Lightweight, rugged stainless steel construction
  • Safely vents fuel prior to puncturing
  • Useful Jetboil toolkit with bottle opener and jet orifice wrench integrated into handle
  • Clips onto carabiner or key ring for convenience
