Pack light, but carry a powerful stove with the palm-sized MSR 11792 Pocket Rocket, which weighs just 3 ounces and measures 4 by 4 by 2 inches. It offers fast and simple lighting, with no need for priming, pressurizing or maintenance, and it will boil a liter of water in under 3.5 minutes. The glove-friendly controls allow precise flame adjustment and stability, while the micro-burner, tri-sectional Windclip Windshield clip protects flame in light wind gusts. It uses clean burning MSR IsoPro premium fuel.
- MSR recommends 4 oz. (114ml) of liquid fuel per person per day for cooking or 8 oz. (237ml) of liquid fuel per person per day for melting snow and cooking.
- At high altitude, MSR stoves may burn "rich," which hinders vaporization. Reducing fuel bottle pressure and opening up the windscreen can offset this.
- MSR's stoves burn best when the fuel bottle is pressurized to 15-25 psi (1034-1724 mb). That's equivalent to about 20 pump strokes for a full 22-ounce MSR fuel bottle. As the fuel burns, the air space in bottle grows larger, and pressure decreases. You'll have to pump more to maintain the same pressure.

The product itself is actually just the top part of the photo shown on the product page. It does not come with the small red propane tank (MSR All Season Fuel Blend, Net Wieght 8 oz, Gross Weight 13.1 oz) that fuels the device. We have been able to purchase the fuel for this at Dick's Sporting Goods, Walmart, and Sports Authority, but it may also be available on Amazon.com.
The PocketRocket Stove comes in a small red plastic container and is so compact and is easy to carry, that it barely adds any weight to your camping supplies. This is extremely useful if you are out hiking or primitive camping .You could even use it for a picnic.
All you have to do is take the small stove out of its container, attach it to your fuel supply (as shown), turn the gas knob to release the fuel, and light with a match or a lighter. The stove heats up very quickly. The small knob on the bottom of the stove twists so that you can adjust the strength of the flame/heat level. We have been able to quickly heat many different types of meals on this little gadget.
This small device has made all the difference in our primitive camping trips. We used to attempt to cook our food over a fire, and almost always that failed due to a weak fire, or just not having the right amount of heat directly applied to our pot/pan.
I highly recommend this simple device to anyone who wants a quick meal at the campsite, picnic, or other outdoor adventure.
If the stove had an integrated ignition system the price, size, and weight I assume would increase. Having a lighter handy to ignite the stove is no issue for me.
The surface area provided by the supports are adequate for most applications. If you plan to boil water or cook on this with a canteen or water bottle, the stove is great. I even pushed the limits of the stove and took it tailgaiting and used an 8" frying pan to cook brats and as long as I balanced the handle and pan well the set up was stable. (Not that I recommend this as the primary use)
I highly recommand to buy an adapter "Camping Propane Small Tank (input) to a Lindal Valve output" to go with as the Camping Propane Small Tanks are the most common to find (at least in my area). I bought the Kovea LPG adaptor one that is excellent.
I really like the hard triangle box. it is just too bad that it didn't offer a little more room in length in order to add my converter inside.
Buy one. Open package. Screw on to Isobutane cannister. Place on level ground. Open valve. Ignite. Cook.
This has been on MSR's lineup for quite awhile and with good reason. It may not be the lightest nor will it fit into your little pot with a fuel cannister. Yet it has built a solid reputation for being a dependable, efficient, stove done up in a small package. Again, buy one.
Stop reading reviews and buy it. Lightweight, small, efficient, and gets the job done!
