Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fast, reliable stove Used this past weekend hiking Crow Pass in Alaska. Had no issue boiling water at the top of the pass where it was super windy or along the river being. Was convenient to just boil water for multiple people for breakfast or coffee while they were getting their stoves set up. For four people, it was useful to have a stove this big. For a solo trip, day trip, or single night, I'll likely pick up the 1L windburner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fast, but stiching coming apart after 2 outings Used it twice on Scout camp out, okay probably overkill but prepping for a week canoe trip this summer. Did the job but falling apart after 2 uses. Not happy I need to send it back to MSR and wait for a replacement. Also had a situation that the bowl got stock on the bottom of the pot, almost couldn't get it off without cracking it. Other than the construction, I like it, wish I had this at Philmont last summer instead of the Whisper lite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camping hightech This thing boils water in a few minutes. The only two imperfections are a lack of ignition and not super easy to take off lid when it's boiling.

Is the burner base the same for the 1 l and 1.8 l? (are they interchangeable?) Would a Jetboil Sumo cup fit on this? (I'm guessing No) The problem with Jetboil is you can't simmer or fry-- looks like this system works better than that?

Asked by: Katxa
The burner for the WindBurner Stove System accommodates both the 1.8 liter and 1 liter cup from MSR. The MiniMo cup from Jetboil was not intended to work with the WindBurner stove.

The photo shows it on an 8 oz. Iso-Pro fuel canister. I know it will fit onto any size canister, but will the 8 oz. canister pack inside the larger 1.8L pot/mug or just the 4 oz. size?

Asked by: Kauaijohn
The 8 ounce iso-butane canister will not nest inside of the 1.8 liter WindBurner Stove System with all of the other components for the stove inside.

Is the french press kit compatible with this cup just lik the 1 liter or is this one wider, thus making the screen too small.

Asked by: KyleHess33
The 1.8 liter stove system is wider so it is not compatible with the 1 liter coffee press kit. You can purchase a 1.8 liter coffee press kit from Cascade Designs.

I am debating between the WindBurner and the Reactor witch would you recommend and why? Also what are the pros and cons of each stove?

Asked by: Alias
Both stoves use the same technology, however, the purpose of their design is different. The Reactor was originally engineered to be an efficient snow melter/water boiler for mountaineering teams, while the Windburner was the redesign with the minimalist backpacker in mind. So, the Windburner uses less fuel, is more compact and can boil water is less time. It also sports a redesigned pressure regulator valve to better slow simmer water and wet foods.

can I just buy a 1 liter cooking mug along with this 1.8 liter cooking system? That way I can take which ever size I need based on the number of people in my party at the time. Sometimes I go out solo and other times there are 3 or 4 of us.

Asked by: AK300
​Additional mugs, such as the 1 liter mug, can be bought directly from the vendor.
