MSR Simple Cooking Stoves from Ultralight Outdoor Gear

The mainstay of most backcountry travelers, MSR® Simple Cooking stoves offer versatile, all-around performance for preparing a variety of meals on the trail. With the renowned WhisperLite - series stoves as a cornerstone, these stoves feature broader burner heads and moderate flame control to expand cooking options for backpackers and global vagabonds alike.

Whisperlite is almost generic when it comes to liquid fuel stoves a real classic. This latest vesrion has a couple of minor modifications which will not detract from its performance as a liquid fuel stove. However the main change is the addition of an adaptor and jet assembly to enable the stove to run on gas canister fuel.  

The main advantages of gas canisters are cleanliness and convenience running your stove on gas means its easier to light and doesn`t need the same level of maintenance than a liquid fuel stove. The main disadvantage however is fuel availability - if there are no gas canisters to buy then you need a stove that burns the fuel thats available - which could be unleaded petrol or kerosene.  

This makes the Whisperlite Universal a good choice for round the world adventures where fuel types will be various. In order to burn different types of fuel the jet has to be changed and to move between gas canister and liquid fuels requires using a different adaptor at the fuel end of the hose. Both changes are quick and simple.  

As with all multifuel stoves if you only burn the purest fuel they work well and are very reliable when lots of different fuels are used care is required to maintain the stove adequately.
