    Comments about MSR Whisperlite Shaker Stove:

    I recently purchased this stove for my 13 year old son. He used it for a week end back packing trip with no complaints. There are two things I love about this stove. 1) White gas has been around for a long time and will be here for a lot longer and 2) you can look inside the bottle to see how much fuel is left.

    Comments about MSR Whisperlite Shaker Stove:

    I bought this stove 12 or 13 years ago. It kicks arze. Totally small and packable inside pots and pans kits. Burns like crazy on high and can simmer for cooking rice. The multifuel option is very handy but you will never use it. I've used it about a thousand and another thousand times and it's finally having problems. Maybe there are better stoves, but i never needed to find out. I hope they never ever stop making this stove.

    I just ordered the stove. I haven't had a chance to use it yet. So, I think your request for me to rate the product is a little pre-mature.

    Upon shutting tank valve off, the remaining fuel in the hose does not burn off (factory says it should) so 2-3 tablespoons leak each time.

    Comments about MSR Whisperlite Shaker Stove:

    Simple design & easy to disassemble & easy to clean. Unfortunately the stove gets covered in soot from the pilot lighting. Plan on dirty hands and a rag to wipe off. Also, the stove does NOT burn the fuel left in the hose from the tank after closing the valve. You will spill 3-4 tablespoons of fuel on the ground every time! Wish I bought a canister stove...

    Comments about MSR Whisperlite Shaker Stove:

    I mostly use this stove in the winter months, but it has been pressed into service in summer too. It has never let me down and I consider it one of my most loyal travel companions.

    I like the simple design and how easy it is to make repairs in the field. After being let down by some other stoves that require a full toolbox to fix I decided to switch.

            A:

            Almost any back pack cook set will work with a Whisperlite. 6 person group cook sets would be the exception. 2 person 4 person would work great.

        • Q:

          I bought one of these a few months ago thinking it was an international whisperlight. I burned regular gasoline in it and it worked fine. But I see it lists in specs to burn white gas. I need to buy another one since I left the last one in New Zealand. Can I use regular gasoline?

          • A:

            This one will burn many of the fuels of the international, but anything other than white gas will clog the stove quickly. You will need to clean it after each use when running anything other than white gas.

            A:

            Whisperlite's run on white gas. The older international Whisperlite runs in white gas and kerosene. There is also a MSR Whisperlite Universal Stove will burn unleaded fuel and have the option of isobutane.

          Asked on 2/9/2013 by amy from Republic WA

          1 answer

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            - The 10 oz. bottle will burn for 68 minutes on high.
            - The 20 oz. bottle will burn for 136 minutes on high.
            - The 30 oz. bottle will burn for 204 minutes on high.

            The bottle will last as long as you use a petroleum type fuel. If the o-rings on the bottle are cracked then it will need to be replaced.

        • Q:

          I have an older version of the MSR Whisperlite Shaker Stove. My fuel pump has a leak, reason for the fuel not reaching the stove. Do you sell fuel pumps separately? Will the fuel pump of the new model fit the old model MSR Whisperlite Shaker Stove? Thank you.
