Say goodbye to the days of needing a windscreen and boil up to four times fast than most competitor stoves with the MSR Windburer Stove.
It’s time to change the way you cook meals and brew coffee in the backcountry.
With Windproof technology, the MSR Windburner Stove works in weather conditions that shut most other stoves down. While windproof technology sounds like one thing, MSR has actually taken a handful of different steps to innovation their stoves.
For starters, the Winburner features a pressure regulator which not only excels in the cold but makes for even faster boil times. A radiant burner offers an even, consistent level of heat across a generously wide burner head.
No longer do you have to rely on a single point of flame that hits the pot. To ensure all of the heat goes exactly where it’s needed, the heat exchange ring design completely protects against the wind.
With that said, read on below and you’ll find more of my MSR Windburner Stove System Combo review in greater detail.

MSR Windburner Stove System Combo Review
After trekking outdoors and reaching my favorite spot for a meal, I grabbed the MSR Windburner Stove System Combo out of my pack.
Luckily, MSR decided to make each piece of gear nesting so that it saves plenty of precious space. The 2.5 L ceramic-coated aluminum nonstick pot houses a full MSR fuel canister alongside the Winburner stove itself. To lock everything in, there’s also an aluminum lid with an integrated vent to prevent water for boiling over.
I also decided to bring along the 8-inch skillet as well which features a folding lockable handle.
When setting up the Windburner stove itself, the process couldn’t be any easier. The base is incredible stable thanks to legs that extend out but tuck away when not in use. I found the system works way better than the traditional cooking method where everything is stacked on the fuel canister itself.
In terms of heating, the radiant burner works beautifully. A quick light with a flame and there’s a red indicating wire that everything is going smoothly. A few moments later and the entire surface of metal wires are glowing red hot.
After adding water to the 2.5L pot, boil times were exceptionally fast. I repeated the same process with the skillet, and ultimately ended up with a nice sized chicken and rice lunch. After a short cooking time, everything came out to perfection. I also wanted to mention that for melting snow, the MSR Windburner will work, even if it’s slightly covered in snow, to begin with.
Overall, I really enjoyed the experience of giving the MSR Windburner Stove system combo a tryout. I’ve used other outdoor stoves in the past, but this one sets the bar for perfection high. What I also found out was that you can mix and match with other Windburner cookware.
So if you aren’t planning on feed multiple people, you can choose to go with a smaller pot or pan size. Or if you’re going car camping, for instance, you can go even larger, and create the ultimate gourmet meal for a nice sized group of people.
