I'm looking to upgraded my camp cookware. My two primary needs are longevity, and ease of cleaning. I don't have a problem paying a premium for a product that meets these two objectives. I've heard good things about the jet boil stuff, wondering what everyone else is using.

I use both the basic Jet Boil and the Jet Boil Genesis. I use the Jet Boil for boiling water/making coffee etc, it is QUICK and easy to use. For real cooking purposes I LOVE the Genesis. It is compact to use and is completely self contained. It has a Frying pan and a Boiling pot. Both are awesome to use and easy to clean. ( Cleaning is important.) The Genesis Unit is very compact and stores quickly and easily. I was given the Genesis as a Father's day gift 2 years ago and contemplated returning it, it is quite expensive and I was happy with my old Coleman stove. My wife convinced me to keep the Genesis and I am so glad I did.
Much of what you want will be dictated by what you want to cook. If you are happy with boiling water and pouring it into a bag of pre made "Slurp" then you will not need a Genesis. If you feel like boling rice and making a nice stir fry/or BOIL water for pasta at elevation/need some reliable high heat then the Genesis will be your call in my opinion.

Here is my setup making breakfast.

I’m partial to Camp Chef Everest. Won stove of the year like 5 times. And now you can get a griddle top etc.
I have also become fond of the Skottle.
