User Review: MSR SimmerLite
Price Paid: EUR 100
Yes, I like it although it is not really a simmerer. I have used it on a couple of weekend trips and I am looking forward to a 4-week cycle trip. That should give plenty of opportunity to learn to know it better.
Compared to the Whisperlite it is a little lighter, it looks desperately modern and I have a feeling that it's more stable with a pot on top. It is not convertible to kerosine, which may be unpractical in countries where the white gas is on the heavy side (as in Scotland). There you will have to use car fuel or look at yellow flames.
Lighting this stove is just a little easier. It is also very quiet and I like that very much... ten years ago I owned a Dragonfly and I gave it away because of the thundering noise it made. However, if you want a really low flame that would be the stove you are looking for.
I have been amusing myself lately making pop can stoves that run on methanol, maybe I will take one with me just for simmering. For quietness and gentle heat, these are the ones to beat.
