Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coffee maker on the trail! I used this stove every day on my 2016 AT Through-Hike. I will not repeat all of the positive comments here except to say the optional coffee press, which also nestles in the pot for transport and weighs almost nothing was my great joy on the trail. Each morning I would boil three cups of water while still in my bag, pour one cup into the MSR cup with instant grains and dried fruit. I would add four spoons of coffee to the remaining water and by the time I finished my hot grains, I would depress the coffee press for two cups of delicious java. Several other hikers switched over to the Windburner /press after seeing (smelling?) my breakfast ritual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent package I'm very pleased with this so far with a couple rounds of field testing. I could come up with cooking systems that would weigh less than the Windburner, but I'm more than happy to have the weight because it all packs up so tidily. No more trying to wedge a separate stove/pan/fuel can into different nooks. And the heating was superb. I'm used to 4-5 minutes for water to boil and this thing was rolling away before I had all my dehydrated food laid out, and this was in 7-8 mph winds in the open. When cooking in it (rather than just using the water to rehydrate things) I had no issue with food scalding to the pot and clean up was a breeze with some warm water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Compact Stove I bought a cheap $20 stove to cook meals on a 19-day round-trip scenic drive from Phoenix to Anchorage. It burned a whole can of fuel to boil one cup of water (it was super windy). And of course, I was already well into the middle of nowhere when I needed to use it. I exchanged the cheap stove for this boss. It more than held up to its name. I've used it for almost every meal on the way back to Phoenix and on a couple camping trips since then. I'm still on the first fuel canister... My friend has the Jetboil and its sleeve is loose, unlike the windburner's. Everything on this piece is tight and fit - in all right ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Stove Used the stove on a recent trip in the high desert here in Idaho. Wind was constant and the stove really shined. Stove packs neatly inside the cook pot and sets up in less than a minute. Lights easily and seems totally unaffected by the wind. Boils 2 cups of water in the blink of an eye. I'm pretty picky about gear and really have nothing negative to report. It does what it's designed to do very, very well. Construction looks good and I expect it to last for quite a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blew my MSR Whisperlite AWAY!! I the time it would have taken me to LIGHT my frickin whisperlite, this blowtorch had water boiling!!! (And we had overfilled the pot with 32 oz). Within ?15 seconds I saw micro bubbles forming on the bottom of the pot. The whisperlite was a pain, trying not to overfill the priming cup, and waiting for the priming flame to heat the coil, plus dealing with the flames if u overfilled the priming cup. We were snow camping, the Windburner powered on. My whisperlite will wait for some unsuspecting friend or family member who expresses an interest in a stove

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Burner, Insulator sucks I bought the MSR Windburner last year and I love the burner! Except I was looking to replace the insulator on it since it is not very good at all. Found a solution to my problem by buying the Jetboil Zip cozy and it is able to slip right over my MSR and completely replace the original one without any modifications. So if anyone is in the same boat I was in, you can have your cake and eat it too for an extra $10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cook Stove Love MSR products, in general, and the WindBurner, in particular. I took this out on a weekend camping trip to Chaco Canyon in New Mexico and it worked flawlessly. It should be noted that Chaco Canyon is windy as heck so this stove was perfect without any additional windscreens, etc. It heats water and food up lightning fast so you don't waste any fuel. BTW, the REI Associate (Kristopher Hayne) who helped me buy this product in Santa Fe was absolutely fantastic! Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot and fast I bought the MSR for those trips when I don't want to do more to prepare my meals then boil water. This has to be the easiest and fastest stove I have ever used. The boil time is so quick you need to have everything else ready or it will be boiling before you know it. The stove is easy to light, and a strong wind didn't phase it at all. The smaller canister lasted for a weekend for two people, and I like that it nestles inside the cook pot. The weight and space it takes up are both very small. A great addition to my gear lineup.

How do you recommend lighting this stove?

Asked by: Drew62
The WindBurner Stove System can be started with a match, lighter, or something like the Handheld Piezo Igniter.

How accurate is the spec that says it takes 95 mins to use up a 100g canister of fuel, Jetboil is half that time. The windburner seems exceedingly better than Jetboil in that regard, so just seeing if that's true.

Asked by: Awlareau
​The specs are correct as provided by the vendor. The Windburner heats with radiant heat, due to the radiant burner as well as direct heat. As of March, 2017 Jetboil only offers direct heat stoves.

Does this have a push button igniter?

Asked by: Blake83
No it doesn't, that is the one problem I have with the system. it was disappointing to find that out after purchasing it, and while on trail. it heats super fast, but don't put pots or pans on it not designed for the windburner system, it is as they say completely enclosed and won't pull oxygen in if you don't have the right unit.

Do you need to use the pot that comes with it or can I use a different one?

Asked by: Ordinary
The WindBurner Stove System was designed only to work with WindBurner products such as the skillet or the 1.8 liter pot.

I want to hike the JMT this summer and wonder if anyone has used both this and the comparable Jet Boil product? I tend to stick with the brands that I know (old fella), so other than the price and the electronic ignition any suggestions?

Asked by: EZDOESIT2
This stove system is a great choice for hiking the JMT. The nice feature on this stove compared to the Jetboil is the radiant burner. This gives you faster boil times, better fuel efficiency and better heat dispersion.
