Simmerlite? on 11/12/2013 23:13:33 MST Print View

That's what the manual says. No longer made by MSR and is quieter and lighter than Whisperlite. Not as stable.

I have this stove and really enjoyed it while snow camping. It seemed to use less fuel than the Whisperlites that others were using.
Great deal, in my opinion!

Yes, that is a Simmerlite stove. I have one. Yes, it is quieter and lighter than a Whisperlite, but I have not had any problem with stability. Maybe that is because when I burn mine in snow country, I place it on a small piece of Masonite.

Yup, Simmerlite. My brain malfunctioned between taking the pic upstairs and typing the FS post downstairs.

Happens far too often, unfortunately.....

Nice stoves. The lightest white gas stove I believe (although Primus may now have something about the same). Discontinued by MSR.

It's a WindPro configured for white gas (well, actually the WindPro is a Simmerlite configured for canister gas, but whatever). :)

The one thing about a SimmerLite to note is that it really doesn't simmer. Yeah, you can modulate the flame a little, but if one is looking for a good cooking stove for "real cooking", this would not be it. Good water boiler.

Try mine out on 11/13/2013 11:21:56 MST Print View

I'll have to try mine out sometime, still new in the box too. A group I never met before, were using a whole herd of them to melt snow, can't recall what stove I had on that trip. It kept up with them, did not know it was more efficient. So many stoves, so little time.
