MSR SimmerLite Backpacking Stove
Whip up scorch-free meals on MSR's light liquid-fuel-burning stove. It quickly adjusts from rapid boil to stable simmer. Fine-tune the flame from rapid boil to slow, stable simmer for even, consistent cooking; control valve is at the pump, well away from flame. New self-purging pump won't leak when you remove it from the stove after cooking, is easier to adjust and is more durable. 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; legs fold for compact storage. Durable six-inch long fuel line keeps bottle away from flame for ease of use and safety. Totally field maintainable--every stove part is designed to be taken apart and easily replaced in the field, including the fuel pump. Shaker Jet technology makes cleaning as simple as shaking the stove. White gas offers the best heat-output value, plus it performs well at any temperature. Requires MSR Fuel Bottle for operation, sold separately. Weight of liquid fuel stove includes only stove and fuel pump.
