NO. 1: THE NESTING TEST
The MSR WindBurner Combo Stove System is a stove and cookware set that aims to bring gourmet cooking to the backcountry. But is it still easily packable? We put it to the test vs one of the most packable things on the planet, Russian dolls.
NO. 2: THE FULL MEAL TEST
The WindBurner Combo has a skillet, a pot, simmer control, a strainer lid, a pressure regulator and nonstick surfaces, but can it really be used to cook a 5-star meal in the woods? We put it in the hands of our most average cook to see if he could impress our critic/scientist.
NO. 3: THE SPACE RAY TEST
The pot in the MSR WindBurner Combo Stove System is ceramic-coated, nonstick aluminum which is great for cooking meals, but can it stop an alien ray gun? We put it to the test. I'm not sure if the results matter, though. In my experience, aliens are friendly and rarely resort to violence.
Bottom line: If you want to step up your backcountry cooking game, this is the easiest way to do it. Impress all your friends or make better ones with the delicious meals you'll soon be making. Check out the MSR WindBurner Stove System.
