The MSR XGK EX is an expedition-proven stove that's trusted by mountaineers for reliable performance in extreme conditions. When you're far above the treeline and away from any rivers or streams, you'll be grateful for the uncompromising performance as you melt snow at high altitude. It is capable of boiling 1 liter of water in under 3 minutes, and maintains itself with the Shaker Jet™ which cleans as you hike (it has a little needle which bobs around as you move, cleaning the fuel jet). Featuring a flexible fuel line, you can stow this stove into a 1.5-liter pot. These qualities have made this stove a backcountry staple for over 35 years and, unless they finally come out with a stove-app, is sure to be around for at least 35 more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This stove burns anything, anywhere with great heat output I've owned the MSR xgk ex for 2 years. This stove will burn anything and it does so well. It folds up nicely to a compact size however you must also have the fuel bottle and the pump to make it burn. Not the best stove for the quick summer trip but it will do the job and do it well. This stove is designed for the higher altitudes, the cold and the wind. In those harsh conditions the extra ounces of equipment and fuel will pay for itself the first time it's fired up. This stove outperforms all others in versatility and speed. I use it for all my mountaineering, and cold weather camping. I would recommend it to any serious outdoorsman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove; as rugged as it gets This stove is not one of the small ultra light ones; it will hold up to larger pots. Its large swing open base creates a very sturdy surface. Its ability to use multiple fuels is great for use during emergency situations where a certain fuel is not available.,,Instructions are very detailed and it is easy to get the stove going the first time.,,the burner it also a small jet engine and will boil water rather quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for long backpacking trips I really like this stove because of it's low center of gravity and because it can take lots of different kinds of fuel. It's a little tricky to set up the first few times, but if you practice once or twice before your trip, you'll be a pro. I also like that you can get different size bottles for the fuel, so you can carry as much fuel as you need without taking up a bunch of extra space in your pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge output and bulletproof build quality Purchased this stove for winter backpacking and mountaineering, mostly to melt snow and boil water. The amount of heat output is unsurpassed, especially when burning kerosene. Melting snow use to be a chore with gas burning stoves but now I can almost not keep up shoveling the snow in. The unit feels very well built, as if it will last a lifetime and beyond. The weakest point is probably the plastic fuel pump, but that can be easily repaired or replaced. It is a heavy and large stove overall, at least compared to most backpacking stoves, but this is one of those items that a little extra weight is worth the performance and reliability. Snow is water and without water you are doomed, simple as that. ,,Note that it doesn't really have a low mode, just high and even higher. It hold very large pots - like the kind used to melt snow - but might be unwieldy with smaller sub-liter kits. MSR never disappoints, you can't go wrong with this stove if you need a powerhouse!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Stove to Rule Them All I have used this stove on nearly every backpacking trip I have been on. This stove handles extremely well in the harshest elements. It is simple to set up and easy to cook with. Recommended for anyone looking for a stove that does it all.

Can I perk a large pot of coffee for a group of 4? 

Asked by: 2old
Hey 2old, I appreciate your interest in the MSR XGK EX Stove. The cook stove is versatile and fast. It is capable of boiling 1 liter of water in under 3 minutes. I'm sure that you could expect similar cook times for your coffee. I hope that this helps get you one step closer to your perfect cup of Joe on the trail.
