Windburner Stove Combo System

Why We Like The Windburner Stove Combo System

The Windburner Stove Combo System includes MSR's innovative, windproof stove with a complementary pot and skillet perfectly sized for our backpacking trips. The stove's unique, radiant burner sits lower in the stove for wind-resistance, and the included pot and skillet fix above the stove to completely seal out blustery breezes when we're cooking breakfast. We love that the system's modular design lets you pack everything together, and the included strainer lid locks everything shut when you're hiking.

So far, it works just

So far, it works just fine. The wind doesn't bother it when cooking. I do mostly car camping due to my age and it fits my needs.

Incompatibility for no reason

You can only use this with Windburner compatible kit. We’ve got a nice collapsible kettle that we can’t use with this. Why, MSR, didn’t you just design the vents into the base instead of into the pots and accessories? Why also do you not make an adapter with the vents in it, thus allowing people to use non MSR pots / pans / kettles? Could be such a great product, but this lets it down massively.

Worth it

Just great. Expensive but worth it. I like to eat “normal” food even when I have to pack into the wilderness. Ova easy eggs with ore ida freeze dried hash browns etc. The MSR Jet burners are great for boiling water but burnt a hole in my scrambled eggs. This kit works in the wind. Cooks anything. Pot is big enough for 1 lb of spaghetti. Lighter than my old Camping Gaz kit.

Must have

Great cooking system. Made the switch from another big name competitor after poor performance in lower temps and was pleasantly surprised by the Windburner system. No issues thus far in below freezing temps.

Okay stove set, but disappointed overall.

I have used this system for a 3-week combined car/bicycle/hiking trip, plus some shorter trips. It has cocked food well in many different situations. However, it has a lot of issues which leaves me with the feeling that this stove has entered into the market without proper testing and/or some misses in quality control. I did not expect this from MSR. 1. The lid is held on by a hook and a ""clamping roller"", however the hook on my sauce pot are only slightly engaging with the lid. The lid often comes off during transport, and the canister and burner jumps out. Also unsafe when pouring hot water with the lid on. 2. This stove does not simmer in the slightest wind. It is so easy to fix - but i as the consumer shouldn't fix it. The problem is in the air intake, the nozzle shoots up a thin gas flow and draws in air in from the 4 holes and mixes in the burner head. But when you turn down the stove to get a simmer, the gas flow gets unstable and the slightest wind interferes, causing the flame to go out. Adding a simple foil screen with a 10mm clearance around the intake solved the problem. Then the wind can't blow straight across the gas flow. Simple. 3. The nut that holds the nozzle in place comes loose. It should have had thread fastener before mounting it. 4. It comes without a bag. Provide a simple bag to protect it or hold it together when the lid comes off. 5. The pans coating does not hold up in the center above flame, heat not as evenly distributed as i hoped. 6. Pan doesn't fit anything when packing the set and gets scratched under the pot. 7. Sound. It's almost silent when at full power but turning it down to medium the flame starts oscillating and gets quite noisy. 8. The burner/pot connection is stable, but sometimes hard to fit together. Positives: Handle - perfect design. Folding legs - lovely. Lighter than it looks. Rubber + silicone details. Overall it's okay but im disappointed. I hoped for better and it needs improvement.

Great product! I plan to buy another one.

Took this set with for a weekend camping trip and cooked for a group of 4. It worked great! Quick set up, light weight for packing, and did a great job at cooking up food fast. It was a bit windy in the afternoon and still worked great to make meals. No issues at all. Glad I made the purchase and plan on buying one more so I can cook for a bigger group.

Stove does not work after 400 gr gas and 4 days of use.

Absolutely upset about it. I have a tend and this windburner from MSR, hope it was secure and reliable choice. In the middle of a rice cook, it stop flowing gas yesterday, and so we had to it that eat raw. How on earth !!! Is this a reliable product? I would not recommend it really. We do not know what to do with all the set now, and fear that it is not at all a save, secure and reliable product. Ahh, and not really cheap, uffs! What is the cost of low quality to the customer? There is a high cost, isn't it? Alex

Swiss Army Knife of Stoves

I have owned many MSR Stoves (Pocket Rocket, Reactor, Whisperlite International) and this stove fills a spot in the MSR line-up, for me, that has been missing. I call it the Swiss Army Knife of stoves because it does so many things well...not perfect but as a result of this system's flexibility I would be hard pressed to find myself wanting for another stove unless gourmet cooking or winter adventures are on your list. To quote my 6 year old son, "" That's awesome!!"" Top features: -Ceramic coating on skillet and 2.5L Pot. Absolutely incredible! When will MSR make a pot set for home use?! -Removeable/interchangeable pot/skillet handles. -Lid lock on pot for straining pasta, rice etc. Avoiding steam burns. -Very stable platform for burner & cup/pot/ skillet interface. Unlike the original Windburner 1L or 1.8L this stove does not have indents that lock the larger pots to the burner. This avoids any injury while trying to fumble with larger capacities of the 2.5 & 4L pots whilst disconnecting from the burner. -Spot on boiling times for the larger capacities. -Regulator. A not often seen feature on MSR canister stoves. This one has it and ensures consistent output at the burner head regardless of fuel levels in the canister. -Radiant burner head. Virtually unaffected by wind and a larger surface area allow for category leading boil times. No need for a windscreen. -If you own other Windburner Cups they will fit. Opportunities for improvement -Skillet does not nest with 2.5L Pot. Perhaps with the 4L. Leaves you with a rather clumsy bag despite the burner/ fuel easily fitting into the 2.5L pot. Potential for unwanted wear & tear on the skillet as a result. If the skillet did nest with the 2.5L pot it would be pretty small. I was able to fit 8"" tortillas in to make quesadillas so the size isn't all bad. -If using a 16 oz fuel canister and the larger pots, the canister was little closer than I liked due to the height. Yes, this can be solved by using other can
