This original model comes in a 1.0 or 1.8 liter system. This unique burner is extremely efficient and dependable. It is basically windproof. Works best for boiling water (fast) and reheating liquids, but with the optional skillet, can be used to cook almost anything. It actually simmers surprisingly well. I have cooked eggs, hash browns, omelettes, bacon, pancakes, and grilled cheese sandwiches in the skillet with great results. The unit is comprised of a canister stand, a burner, a pot, a strainer/sipping lid, a bowl/measuring cup, a cleaning cloth and an insulated pot jacket. The pot stand, burner, cleaning cloth and a small fuel canister all nest nicely inside the pot. The bowl snaps on the bottom and the lid snaps on the top. One common complaint is that the bowl on the bottom gets stuck on the base. This is caused by putting the bowl on the pot before snapping the lid on. The lid is a very tight fit and it you put everything inside the pot and place the bowl on the bottom and then try to snap the lid on, the downward pressure will force the pot into the bowl, possibly damaging the bowl. To remedy this, I always add the bowl last. It is not a non-stick system. The 1.0 liter pot will not nest inside the 1.8 liter pot.

*In early 2018 MSR introduced a new version of this system with remote fuel tank. This newer version also has larger pots available and the pots and skillet have a ceramic coated non stick surface.
