      by fromfood burner I replaced my pocket rocket with this after being forced to leave it to stranded German's in a Cairngorm bothy who were not equipped to walk out in the storm. The pocket rocket was excellent and is missed. The micro-rocket is not nearly as useful - it heats like a bunsten burner only the middle of the pot and burns food like crazy. Shame and disappointed.

      by fromSmall Performer My son and I got this great little stove for our weekend camp-outs. The MicroRocket was quick and reliable in simmer or full out burn. Cook gear must be wider than 4 inches to sit on the burner arms safely (that meant we had to ditch our mini coffee pot for something wider).

      by fromGreat Replacement for the Pocket Rocket A great replacement for the MSR Pocket Rocket. It is smaller and fits nicely in my backpack! I will definetly be replacing the Pocket Rocket with the MIcroRocket on all of my adventures. Same capabilities with less space.

      by fromGood Performance, Small Package I picked this up before a 4-day camping trip and was very impressed with it's performance. It sets up quickly, lights easily with the included lighter, and gives decent adjust-ability. It was a little tricky to run a very low flame, but as long as the wind wasn't blowing too hard we were able to make it work well enough to simmer a pot of noodles. This is my first stove, so I was quite honestly surprised how fast it would heat up water. The only real complaint I have is that the flame is very concentrated, so if you're using a wide pan it will get noticeably hotter right above the flame. My buddy has an MSR stove which has a much wider flame that works better for the wide pans. I like to cook and know how to keep it from burning, but those who have difficulty in boiling water had best be careful or use a stove design which doesn't concentrate heat so much like this one does.

      by fromThe Best Rocket Yet Owned a MSR Pocket Rocket for 10 years...simple, easy, no maintenance really at was great! Switched to a Brunton Flex only because of its compactness and ended up hating it after several uses because of poor temp. control compared to the rocket. Unfortunatly I had already given away the rocket,(never get rid of old gear until you are sure about the new gear), so I was resigned to putting up with the scorching nature of the Flex. And then the Micro Rocket came out...almost just like the old but better! Nevermind the other reviewer that barks that it isn't "smaller"...have you compared the both in person? You should probably have first hand knowledge before you criticize other reviewers next time. Anyways, being so intimately familiar with the pocket rocket, I can say with confidence that the Micro Rocket is much more compact, fitting easily inside my cookset while the former never could. Just look at some of the videos online, it's easy to see. And it still has the great temp control I'm used to. So the Brunton is out, the Pocket Rocket continues to be an awesome stove for my friend, and the Micro Rocket fits my criteria for compactness and performance. One last thing, I found the separate pizo to be somewhat will not light the stove if it's really humid. But because it is separate, it's easily up to the user to decide.

      by fromLight weight and compact Bought this stove for 3-5 day backpacking trips. Used it this past weekend for the first time and it worked great. Most of my meals only require boiling water, so this does exactly what I need. The salesman did tell me the flame surface is smaller and more concentrated so it would be harder to cook meals which require more than boiling water. I did heat some noodles and was able to control the flame enough for a light simmer. I really like the compact size and light weight of the Micro Rocket. This stove does everything I need, and I am happy with the performance.

      by fromSimple & Effective I purchased this stove about 6 months ago, upgrading from a Pocket Rocket. I love the compact size of this stove, even when packed inside its hard case. It fits in a smaller cup than the Pocket Rocket which is what I needed. The sparker wasn't really appealing when I bought it, however I've grown fond of having it right there with the stove.

      by fromGreat Stove! I recently got back into backpacking and got this stove after reading up on the internet. I'm glad I did. It works perfectly with the MSR Trail Lite Duo. The stove and igniter fit in one of the mugs. I've used it only for heating water for freezer bag meals, and it has performed flawlessly. Hot, quick, and fuel efficient. What more could you ask for?
