MSR Pocket Rocket

This stove weighs 86g (+ gas); boil time 2 min 46 sec to 5 min; 11cm diameter pan supports; folding pan supports for compact packing; superb price for performance. But not as stable as lower-profile stoves; best boil time is only available with fresh gas canister; 32mm diameter burner can create hot spots; not as compact as newer designs.Verdict
One of the best lightweight gas stoves, making it ideal for weekend backpackers.
