MSR WindPro Stove

MSR WindPro Stove

Product Description

Cook like a backcountry gourmet, thanks to WindPro's wide burner-head that evenly distributes the cooking flame for scorch-free cooking! Easy to operate--no priming, pre-heating or pressurizing is necessary; attach it an IsoPro canister and start cooking (canister sold separately). Wide burner-head distributes flame evenly; includes windscreen and heat reflector for increased operating performance. Three legs/pot supports fan out to form a stable six-inch cooking surface; folds for compact storage. Flame is easily adjusted from a steady simmer to a full boil; 12-inch long fuel line keeps control valve well away from the flame. Totally field maintainable, every stove part is designed to be taken apart and easily replaced in the field. Weight includes stove, not the canister.

Great canister stove! Remote fuel tank allows the use of a full wind-screen, adjusts from a low simmer to full burn evenly, very stable, fuel preheat tube permits alternate fuel delivery methods to use last bit of fuel in the canister and extend cold weather functioning.

The burner is a bit too large to use efficiently with smaller diameter pots and pans, best results with 5 inch or larger diameter. -1 star
Canister stoves have min temperature point at which the fuel will no longer vaporize. -1 star

Love this canister stove. Great stability and good simmer control. Worked great for cooking fish and all out meals for a group of 4 hungry guys.

I have had this stove on three trips now and it's worked flawlessly. I like that it has a fine flame control so I can go from a boil to a simmer quickly and accurately. Since I'm a three season camper it's been used down to 35 deg without problems.

Used this little stove to boil water, cook dinner, for fry bread, and pancakes. Flame control is very good and haven't noticed any problems cooking in the wind due to the included windscreen. Love the convenience of the fuel canisters. Only downside is weight when compared to screw-top canister stoves, however, I believe the great flame control/large burner offsets this.

Good flame control. Boils water fast, simmers well. Fuel lasts a while. Two meals a day for four guys, four days. Eggs/bacon, fish, tacos. Went through one and a half large canisters. Had a problem in colder temps holding a flame, didn't want to get going full blast.

Great stove, worked really well with the windscreen even in the face of 40mph gusts!


For cooler weather use, you can invert the canister on homemade legs such as popsicle sticks rubber banded to the canister or balance it on rocks. This will liquid feed the stove to the generator, which will then vaporize the fuel.

I've had a few MSR stoves, and this is one of my favorite so far. Cooking is very stable, because it sits on the ground and it is wider. It also comes with a wind shield so cooking is very efficient. It is relatively small and light.

I have owned a few stove up to this point, and this is by far my favorite. Sturdy, packs small, never fails!
