New MSR WindBurner Stove Systems & Cookware Options Bring Versatility to Solo Hikers and Group Campers Alike

Publish date:

SEATTLE, WA (July 11, 2017) —Since 1973, MSR® (Mountain Safety Research) has engineered high-performance, standard-setting stove solutions for outdoor adventurers. For 2018, MSR builds off its successful WindBurner Stove System, now the best-selling stove system in the U.S., with a variety of new systems and cookware options, as well as a new remote-canister stove design. The expanded WindBurner line brings the WindBurner’s superior windproof performance to group and multipurpose cooking, with solutions for solo travelers, group campers and a variety of cooking styles—from boil-only meals to simmered feasts.

“When you’re traveling into the backcountry, why not actually be able to cook a good meal without the penalty of bringing all your pots and pans?” said Doug Sanders, category director, MSR Stoves. “This modular system lets you split the weight of a cook system like never before, making a gourmet group experience lightweight, save for the gourmet ingredients, of course.”

Like the original, the new WindBurner stove system options feature a pressure-regulated, radiant burner and a windproof design, giving users a consistently high level of performance in real-world conditions, like wind and cold. They feature a remote-canister stove design that improves stability with taller and larger-volume pots, minimizing the chances of toppling over your gourmet meal or freshly boiled pot of water. The skillet and pots feature either a heat-capturing ring that protects the flame from the wind yet allows for more even cooking, or a superefficient built-in heat exchanger that ensures impressively fast boil times.

The range of new WindBurner systems and cookware are modular with nesting components to produce all-in-one systems that are customizable for everything from solo trips to group adventures. The new systems and components include:
