Imagine being in a remote location on your hiking trip with a cooking stove that’s not working or unreliable, wouldn’t that make your trip a little less pleasant than it should be? For me, I think that’s something that can be easily avoided if you have a good plan as well as reliable cooking tools.
That’s why many campers as well as I recommend MSR Whisperlite Camping Stove (in fact, it has won the Editor’s Choice Award in the famous Backpacker magazine). There’re many reasons why this camping stove is one of the campers’ must-have items especially while on long-time camping trip in the remote location. But different people have different preferences, so why not read our MSR Whisperlite review and see what this tool has to offer.
According to the Backpacker Magazine’s Review, ““Testers had two gripes – priming can be futzy, and you must take care not to lose several small parts – but overall they agreed with an editor who called it “the new benchmark for stove versatility.”
However, if you have used camping stoves in the past you will know that all stoves do have some problems, and when compared with many other stoves, WhisperLite’s seem very minimal and can easily be taken care of. In my opinion, just the fact that this stove can burn evenly while being light in weight beats the minor problems mentioned there.
It’s been awhile since the last time I have met a camping utility that I can actually give 5 star rating and this MSR WhiperLite Universal is one of them. It’s very likely that this stove will be a good investment for regular campers and they will not need to buy another camping in a very long time!
