Show Description

Astonishingly efficient and scaled-down cooking system for soloists or minimalist campers. A radiant stove burner and a heat exchanger in the pot boils water or melts snow in a flash, and gets every possible joule of energy from the fuel. The burner operates near max output at low fuel pressure and in cold temperatures. An internal regulator equalizes pressure for rapid boil times throughout the life of a canister.

  • 1L pot is made of hard anodized aluminum.
  • Burns for about 80 minutes and boils 22L of water with a 227g canister.
  • Integrated windscreen.
  • Operates to -15°C.
  • Stove and pot work are integrated, so it's not compatible with standard flat-bottomed pots.
  • Stove packs compactly inside the pot.
  • Uses MSR LPG canisters (available separately).
