MSR’s WhisperLite is a tried and true liquid-fuel stove system. It’s reliability and durability has been great. Making it a go-to stove for adventure seekers more than 25 years.
Maintenance is simple and basic/annual upkeep can easily keep this stove operating for decades. As mine has. Although I’ve had no issues or field failures, I have heard (albeit not very often) an occasional issue with the control valve being the most spoken of. That being said, I would still recommend this system and continue to use it myself.
