5 stars for small, lightweight, durable, great adjustability.
- Clean design
Great stove. I use it with the GSI MicroDualist — great combo! Had a tough time deciding between this setup and JetBoil — glad I chose the MSR MicroRocket/ GSI setup. No offense to JetBoil— it looks like a great product as well but no regrets in this purchase.
Worth the price. Packs tiny, lighter included has not failed me (added a few waterproof matches to container just in case), fairly durable, great adjustability. I have used it in snow, rain, wind, hot weather — no problems. I've used tiny to large fuel tanks and all have worked great.
I highly recommend the MSR MicroRocket!

This stove is compact and light. When folded up it fits into a container about half the size of a beer can. With the spark lighter no matches are needed!
- Fast to set up
- Compact and light
- Comes with ignighter
- Uses any screw-on canister
- Storage case cheap plastic.
- A little slow in cold weather
- The smallest MSR branded canisters are kinda big compared to the Giga Power small canisters
Setting up the stove is a simple matter of removing it from its storage case, unfolding the pot supports, screwing the stove into the canister and lighting it. The burner separator allows it to stay lit in windy conditions. The flame can be reduced quite low to keep things simmering.
The fuel efficiency is lower in cold conditions because the stove is less efficient. The stove is fairly stable but one must watch the pot position on the supports. It's easy to get it off to one side. The canister forms frost on the sides while in-use. Be careful to dry this off before storing to avoid getting things in your pack wet.
The Giga Power cartridges are smaller that the smallest MSR cartridge and I opted for those. Heated over a gallon of water with one cartridge with fuel still remaining.
On its maiden voyage it performed quite well. Although a little slower and less efficient in the cold, the size and ease of use make it more desirable than liquid fuel stoves I've used in the past.

It's compact, easy to use, light weight, and a great improvement over the A-standard MSR PocketRocket.
- conmpact size
- flame control
- spent canisters create more waste
I used the MSR PocketRocket for 10 years, gave it to a friend, and switched to using the MicroRocket because of its more compact size. It has as excellent of flame control as the previous model and functions just as well, if not better. It also fits inside my pot, along with the fuel canister. It is very easy to set up and boils water fast.
I am very pleased.
