The MSR Pocket Rocket is the ultimate simple to use, ultralight canister stove. Simply screw the stove on top of the fuel canister, turn the valve, light and you're cookin'. This little guy will boil water faster than expected yet simmer sauces delicately. I've used the stove mainly while bagging 14ers or on quick overnight bike tours and it has never failed me. While self contained cooking systems (JetBoil) offer quicker boil times, they cannot compare with the Pocket Rocket in terms of application. The flame adjust and light weight of an entire system makes this a tough act to beat.
