The MSR WindBurner Stove System is a camping stove for solo trips into the backcountry. Using the same technology from the Reactor® stove, the radiant burner is wrapped inside a windproof design so you can quickly bring water to a boil for your next meal or morning coffee. The mug can be used to eat or drink from directly thanks to the cozy wrapped around it for safety from heat, just unlock it from the stove base and secure the detachable bowl. The lid features a hole to be used for straining excess liquid as well as drinking out of. When meal time is over, pack everything into the mug and off to bed or your next camp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Marvel Okay, this thing is fast and super efficient. I picked one of these up mainly to boil water for my coffee and rehydrated meals. I originally planned on doing some timed tests, but things happened quickly. I'd light the thing up, step away to grab something, and before I knew it, it would be bubblin' n' steamin'. I'd say 2-3 minutes tops. And I didn't notice it taking any longer when I boiled water for my morning coffee down at the windy beach. As for efficiency, I made coffee and tea several times each day, and boiled water for 2-person dinners each of the two nights. By the end of those 3 days/2 nights, I still had fuel left in the 4oz canister I brought. I'm mindful of keeping my packed weight to a minimum, but I love my coffee and cooked meals too much. Although it's not ultralight, the ultra-efficient Windburner creates a pretty darn lightweight system considering you won't have to lug around a ton of fuel. It's worth mentioning that your options are somewhat limited with this specialized stove. It simply doesn't simmer well, not made for it. So, you won't be able to go all out gourmet with the Windburner alone. When I'm backpacking with others or car camping, I'll bring the Windburner to compliment another simmer capable stove. As the name suggests, this puppy is made to keep you cookin' in windy situations. The only issue is getting it lit in the first place if it's quite windy. The unit does a great job keeping the radiant burner protected from the wind, but only once the pot is situated. When you're lighting it, the radiant burner is a bit exposed on top. So, if it's super windy you'll still need to shield it a bit and get your pot on there as soon as you can after lighting. Other than that minor issue, the Windburner suits my needs and is just about perfect for what it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except one big flaw My husband loves this for the field with the coffee press. I however used it a lot in the Rocky Mountains and found it cannot simmer. I find that an issue since I tend to backpack, hike, camp with our children and we love noodles. It’s ok for ramen, but I made kraft Mac and cheese, similar to velveeta and I needed it to simmer, and it would not simmer. I was stuck turning it off and relighting often or just lifting the cup off often to keep from boiling over. Other than that it worked great. Also will add, with the full can it’s almost 2 lbs, not for the ultralight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.85 Stars is not an option I purchased the 1.8L System over the 1L system as this system allows for a remote fuel canister and a lower center of gravity. I purchased the compatible 1L Windburner accessory pot, and 1L coffee press. I plan on predominately utilizing the 1L pot with the remote fuel system. Pros: Rapid Boil Easy storage Relatively Lightweight Cons The bowl on the bottom was not manufactured to slight into the 'snap-n-secure ring' on the bottom of the windburner stove. The bowl will fall off if not stowed with something against the bottom. This is an unfortunate oversight that is an easy fix on the manufacturing side. Overall: Happy with purchase. Would happily purchase 1 L with remote fuel system, however that was not an option. Other than that no cons for my intended use of backpacking, camping (3-7 nights), and car camping. I would not recommended for thru-hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast sucker This sucker boils super de super fast. Great for backpacking, and especially nice when its chilly out, to make tea to warm your innards. Haven't tried to fry with it, but making soup, and museli was a breeze. Light weight and compact, would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This system is amazing This stove truly lives up to its name. I recently took it along with me on a 3,000 mile road trip through Utah and Arizona where it performed beautifully day in and day out. Whether it was a quick boil of some water (and it really was quick, the heat dispersement system on the bottom of the 1.8L accessory pot usefully spreads the heat around the full base, and not just the bottom) for morning coffee or getting scrambled eggs to their desired consistency with the easily adjustable burner. The highlight of the stove during the trip was at 7000' feet in a very, very windy night in Capitol Reef. Simmering some noodles for spaghetti at night and coffee and hot cereal in the morning was absolutely no issue with the WindBurner. Not to mention the new satellite base keeps the height lower and more stable in unstable conditions. This stove system is incredibly versatile from sea level to 7000'+ and in incredibly windy conditions. The WindBurner pot and skillet are a great addition to this system, especially for car camping where space isn't an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Stove Solid construction, lights easy, and boils water super fast. Everything you could need in a stove. Only small downside is having to light it with a lighter, but you'd most likely have a lighter on you anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! Have taken my windburner out several times now. Incredibly gas efficient. Boils water in about 4 minutes. Adds a little weight to my pack, but worth it. The press pot attachment (not included) makes a great addition. I have always wanted one of these, and decided to pull the trigger. So glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Msr wind burner I love my new windburner stove. I work as a guide with troubled youth and having something light and powerful is key. It allows me to comfortably carry all the other gear I need with out sacrificing quality or Btu's.

Are the burners for both the 1L and 1.8L the same size and the pot size is the only difference or is the 1.8L burner bigger? I am interested in buying the smaller sized 1L, but having an additional 1.8L pot for when friends join my girlfriend and I.

Asked by: octopusattack
Hey Octopusattack! The burner is the same size for both of these, so you could definitely use the 1.8L pot on the burner provided with the 1L. Sweet!

Hi, Can I use larger fuel canisters?

Asked by: BBBwalker
Hiya BBBwalker, thanks for your question! This stove is designed so you can store a 4 ounce canister inside when its not in use, however, you can use any size fuel canister stove (as long as the connection is compatible). Hope this helps!

Can this stove simmer?

Asked by: Snow Cream
Hiya Snow Cream, thanks for your question! Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to simmer with this stove. If you turn the gas down too low, it will need to be re-lit and unlike a stove with flame jets, you can’t see if the stove is still lit because there’s no visible flame. Here is a video of a simmer test: (Starts at about the 3 minute mark.) Hope this helps!

wondering about the life of the small canister. 2 people, 2 dehydrated,2 person meals a day, and a couple 1.8L pots of hot water for drinks. Any thoughts?

Asked by: Old Fellas
Hiya, thanks for your question! According to the manufacturer, one 8 oz. canister of MSR IsoPro fuel (the recommended fuel canister) should be sufficient to boil water for two people over four days in the summer. Wind, low temperatures and longer cooking times will increase fuel consumption. Hope this helps!

Is it possible to use a different pot or skillet accessory or must you buy the windburned skillet for this particular system?

Asked by: raider
Hiya raider, thanks for your question! The WindBurner Stove System was designed only to work with WindBurner products so I wouldn't recommend using a different skillet or pot. Hope this helps!
