Let's start off with admitting the obvious. This is a compromise between function, lightness, and affordability. This is also a very old design now.

My Whisperlite has served me well, for a very long time. I originally purchased my MSR Whisperlite stove on the recommendation of the book, "Backpacking, One Step At A Time". That was back in 1991. I remember seeing this stove design when I was a boy in the scouts which was quite a bit further back than that...

If the owner of the stove simply follows the instructions from MSR, this stove works flawlessly. Don't put too much fuel in the priming cup, set up the wind screen correctly, don't block off air flow etc... and this stove is as adjustable as you would want to be when on a backpacking trip. I have been as simple as boiling water to rehydrate freeze dried tetrazzini in the Arizona mountains, to as complex as sauteeing freshly caught speckled trout with Creole Seasonings on the Texas coast. I have never been let down by this stove. It has been completely reliable, safe, and easy to use. Now for the down sides.

This is a single fuel stove. But if you are looking at a Whisperlite, you are looking at single fuel stoves specifically, if you wanted multi fuel look at the Whisperlite Interationale, XGK, Coleman Exponent Fyrestorm (stainless or Titanium) or other similar stoves.

For a single fuel stove, it is kind of heavy. At least compared to butane stoves. You will need to measure how much cooking you are going to be doing, and compare the weights against a super light butane stove, but a bucket full of butane cartridges.

The advantages of this stove, if you are going with a small group, compared to a slew of butane stoves are countless.

I've owned a Whisperlite now for 30 years and figured it deserved a review. I'll keep it simple since many of the other reviewers have gone into detail and there's no need for me to do the same.

I worked as an Outward Bound instructor and a backcountry ranger with the National Park Service for 15 years, typically logging about 200 nights a year "under the stars". For the last eight years I've been the field equipment manager at a small college that emphasizes field work and experiential learning (lots of stove use). We've been using Whisperlites here for 25 years. I maintain about 200 Whipserlites (as well as many isobutane and alcohol stove systems) that see consistent, hard use by students and staff. So there: I've tooted my horn a bit. The point is, I've lived with Whisperlites for a while.

The Whisperlite design has been around the block. It has a reputation, both with individuals and with institutions, as the standard for general purpose use. It is nicely engineered, and has received continued attention by the clever people at MSR. Generally, the evolutionary changes have helped the stove (though some would argue otherwise). It continues to set the standard for lightweight, packable, serviceable stoves. That's odd, because frankly it suffers from a variety of maladies. Some are unique to this design, others are shared within the class of whitegas (naphtha) stoves. The pumps are fairly complex and delicate. I continue to get back stoves whose pumps have broken during normal use. Despite careful servicing (during which we change out the O-rings and check, clean and lubricate the valve and plunger mechanism) Whisperlites routinely fail shortly after leaving our facility. The wire frame is easily bent and difficult and fussy to repair.

Ive had one of these for 10+ years now. There is an art to lighting it, but once you understand it is a snap. This uses a catalytic process, it needs to heat itself up for use. Great heat producer to cook anything you could want. There is a windscreen that came with mine which is invaluable and always used. Has been folded up and unfolded many times still is in perfect shape with no cracks. The base itself is studry enough to put anything you like on top of it. I often find myself preferring to use this over my two burner colman stove. The portability is great. The stand legs swing around, everything is disassembled, and it fits in a small nylon bag maybe 8" x 4". I have cleaned it once. Used it probably 100 times.

I bought my Whisperlite in 1996 and have yet to have a problem with it. (I think I may have cleaned it once) Simmering is a bit of a trick but if you use it several times before taking it into the woods you should be able to cook any food you can take in a back pack. There are stories about these stoves going into "meltdown" during light up on cold days but it is always because the user either over primed the stove or was using a damaged fuel line. If you accidentally over prime do not add more fuel. Just let what you have burn off.

I have never had problems lighting the stove or keeping it going (although I did run out of fuel once). Light and VERY easy to use.

Funny thing, it is a bit loud but you never notice until you turn it off.

This stove is GREAT! My husband and I use it for backpacking, and so far, it has held it's flame through 35 mph winds (with a wind screen of course, but still!) and has never gone out even when it was nearly blown off the table (be careful not to start a fire if this happens to you). It packs up small and 1 bottle of fuel (the bigger one) lasts through three days of cooking meals, boiling water to make coffee & tea, and to clean dishes, hair, etc. The ONLY downside to it is that the flame is extremely HOT, which means you can't set your food down on the burner to cook it because it will scald (this is not a problem when boiling water, however). You have to hold it a couple of inches above the flame to prevent scalding. This one downside is definitely outweighed by this plus: the stove cooks food really fast, which means it not only uses less fuel, but your already cooked food doesn't get cold while you are cooking the other items that go with your meal.
