rated 5 of 5 stars Solid choice for minimalists who want to do more than boil water. Broad compatibility with fuel canisters from vendors across the globe is a big plus. I imagine the MSR PocketRocket outsells the SuperFly by a large margin as it's lighter, smaller, and cheaper, but there's a place for this stove among campers who expect to do more than boil water. With its broad burner, the SuperFly spreads heat nicely, and can reliably scramble eggs, saute vegetables, brown hamburger etc. just as you might at home,… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Good lightweight stove. Manual on-line reads never use a wind screen, very bad advice. Without a wind break the stove can have one or two of the stove segments blow out, and while you are still heating the pot you are wasting fuel. I learned this the hard way. I think the the instructions should read: do not tightly encircle the stove in a wind screen. If the stove isn't working well in cold, just place canister in a bowl with an inch or two of water to liquefy fuel. Full review

WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Overall excellent stove. Gives the user more fuel options and comes with the shaker jet like the International. Had a Whisperlite International, which I really liked. Never failed me. Then for some reason I thought I needed a simmer option so I bought the Dragonfly. Failed me on a winter outing. Got rid of it and bought the Whisperlite Universal and could not be happier. Rock solid reliability like my older Whisperlite International, but with more fuel options!! Good job, MSR! Full review

Quick Skillet

rated 4 of 5 stars Good lightweight skillet. Bought it because it nests with my Quick Two System. Wanted a frying pan after cooking eggs in a pot, very difficult to clean. Like the second handle that comes with the skillet, can be used with the pots also. Added a Campmor mesh dunk bag (11" x 16") for $5, it fits the entire system perfectly. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars This thing is great! Fast boiling, efficient, packs well. Setup: Quick, like less than a minute quick. The lid could fit a little better. It is really tight and feels like it could easily come off, but I frequently stuff it in a pack and it always stays put. I also use it to help pour boiling water and it has never come off. Ignition: Leaves much to be desired. I have resorted to leaving a miniature BIC lighter inside so I am always guaranteed to have an ignition source with it. Flame Control: Decent,… Full review
