Description

Lighter and still rocking the same proven multi-fuel technology.

Globetrotting adventurers need a versatile, lightweight stove like the MSR WhisperLite International Multi-Fuel Stove. From white gas to unleaded gasoline, this stove burns it all so you can have a hot meal regardless of the fuel on hand. Shaker Jet technology makes cleaning easy, and a large-diameter fuel line keeps the stove burning hot in case poor-quality fuel is your only option. MSR designed this stove with compact, folding pot supports so you can slide the whole kit into your backpacking bag or into a 1.5-liter MSR pot for safekeeping.
  • Aluminum mixer tube and stainless steel legs reduce trail weight by ten percent over previous models while boosting pot stability
  • Multi-fuel design allows this stove to burn a variety of fuels consistently and effectively
  • Shaker Jets clear the fuel-providing mechanism with a simple shake of the hand, eliminating messy maintenance
  • Pump uses a self-purging design that won't leak as you remove it from the stove after cooking and this design makes pressure adjustments easy
  • A simple twist of the rubberized control tab at the fuel pump opens and closes the fuel valve which controls burner intensity
  • Wide stainless pot stands hold pots large or small so you can cook up a meal or easily melt heavy scoops of snow
  • Includes heat reflector, storage sack, and windscreen that easily wraps around cookware and pots up to 10 inches in diameter
  • Stove requires the use of a MSR brand fuel bottle for operation (sold separately)

Fire!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The MSR Whisperlite is solid, super reliable, and bulletproof. Once you actually read the instructions it's a cinch to light up. I find that you can modulate the fire level well enough if you have a light touch on the nozzle. It's nice to know that I could use it with easily-found fuels in case I run out of white fuel or am travelling internationally.

I use it with a GSI dualist cooking set and it boils water rather quickly. I'm also really fond of using it with a bialetti (stovetop espress) to make drinkable coffee while camping.

Versatile

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like the easy availability of liquid fuels and for winter hiking I don't mind the weight. I usually ended up using charcoal lighter fluid and found that if I floss the jet with a piece of para cord after each use the jet doesn't clog. I recently switched jets to the kerosene nozzle and found this stove does actually simmer with the heavier fuel. Hey, but keep that fuel bottle upwind they can get pretty hot downwind of the flame.

Love the company, love the product!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this stove for a couple of years now- always lights up, always boils water fast, always reliable. I use coleman fuel in it (mainly because I received two cans of it for a present).

The one thing to remember about all of the MSR pumps though is that you must oil the pump cup with the provided mineral oil every once in awhile. I did not and ruined the little rubber pump cup. Called MSR looking to order a replacement part for said pump cup- Guy on the phone says, "No problem, I'll ship it today- so it's delivered tomorrow." I ask how much? He says, "Oh, don't worry about it. I'll just send it to you." AWESOME company, I will buy many more products from them and will recommend them to everyone. It is getting more and more rare to find a company that stands by there product like MSR/Cascade designs.

Love the company, love the product!

Another Great MSR Product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great overall stove! Boils water fast and is super sturdy. It can hold a heavy pot of water easily. Super easy to use and maintain. Hasn't let me down yet! A great solid and reliable stove.

You really can't simmer with this

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

But everything else is awesome. Things can get quite sooty for some fuels. I use 95 octane (gasoline) but for warming up the pipes I carry 96% ethanol with me in a toothpaste tube. Just add 1 tablespoon of ethanol, light with ferrocerium rod. This leaves no soot whatsoever. It warms the pipes enough so that the octane comes out in gas phase and burns clean from that point. If you start with liquid phase gasoline, you will have soot and mess.

Great stove at a great price!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Haven't actually had the chance to use it yet. Ordered this for a South America trip this summer and wanted a stove with multiple fuel options since some places we'll be will have limited fuel availability. Right out of the box, this stove felt like a quality product and looks/feels much sturdier than I had imagined. The tripod has a nice fold out feature that makes it very easy to set up. The metal used for the base and everything has a nice thick feel and seems like it could hold a very heavy and full pot of food with no problem. Pump and fuel set up look pretty simple and shouldn't cause any complications when using. Can't wait to use this!

Best Stove Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had this stove for a couple of years and recently used it on a month backpacking trip. It's a really durable stove; it's the only one that I haven't managed to beat up after a year or so. It also cooks under any conditions. When other people couldn't get their water to boil my stove did just fine.
It is definitely bigger than canister stoves, but it is worth it for the versatility and durability. My uncle has a Whisperlite from 20 years ago and it still works perfectly.

Sooty at start up.

Even with white gas this thing is very sooty at start up. I understand you can use alcohol as the initial fuel to get the stove up to temperature when using white gas which keeps the soot to a minimum, but who wants to take another bottle of something along? For sea kayaking or for camping... sure. I just don't like the soot getting all over stuff. It definitely isn't as refined as the XGK or Dragonfly stoves. I would definitely recommend the Dragonfly over the WhisperLite International and I would recommend the International over the regular WhisperLite.

All MSR stoves are great products. but they have some that outperform others in their line and a few extra dollars over the lifetime of ownership makes it minimal.

Save money, pack lighter.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This stove is amazing. Using liquid fuel saves an enormous amount of money and doesn't create tons of wasteful butane canisters. Highly recommend! Used this living out of a tent for 4.5 months in Colorado, never had any problems except a stripped fuel faring. Was replaced gratis immediately upon asking customer service.

lightweight

I don't use this guy for when we go car camping but whenever we go hiking. I have heard stories of silly people catching their stove on fire and the fuel follows shortly after so reading the instructions is important. It's really light, less than 11 ounces plus whatever fuel you carry. I think one large white gas canister, usually last us about 5 days on the trail for breakfast and dinner, but don't take my word for it.

All Around Great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this all the time, from adventures in hot and cold, to just a evening on the porch and I am very well pleased with the MSR quality and what they boast about. It is great and light and pretty compact and pretty quick. I use mainly white gas and it works very well and pretty clean too, do be careful in the priming process though! Please do make sure you actually read the instructions before starting because there are a couple things that are pretty important!

All Around Great!

Great Stove

Just took hitchhiking to Canada. Nice and small and fairly light. Efficient and versatile, have only used white gas so far and it boiled pretty quickly. Used unleaded fuel in my friend's and it worked fine. I like the included wind screen. Not as efficient as the new JetBoil type stoves but more versatile. My preference as well as the preference of many of my friends. We even forgot how to prime it so we just poured fuel on it and lit and there it went. The AK 47 of the stove world.

I don't normally plug products, but the WhisperLite International, MSR Titan Kettle, and Snow Peak double walled mug made for a great morning cup of tea. This was badly needed because despite the picture, the five day trip brought three days of drenching rain.

Awesome stove for extreme Cold



I absolutely love this stove. I originally started backpacking with a Jetboil Flash however had to switch over to this during the winter months because isobutane stoves are a pain in the winter when it's really cold out. Make sure you consider this when planning a trip during the winter and expect temps lower than 20 degrees. The Whisperlite is a tried and true standard however. Nothing stops it. Altitude, deep cold, multiple fuels. It's the most reliable stove you'll ever buy. Before you take it out you should practice lighting it because there's a few steps involved but it's pretty easy to get the hang of. Like other reviews have said, it's not the most compact or reliable however when boiling water is your primary or even secondary means of water purification, why leave anything to chance? Great product
