Reviewed by Dr Ed - 6th Nov, 2015 As good as ever After at least twenty years; have replaced my Whisperlite stove with a new Whisperlite International stove. Light, simple, efficient. On this one I shall use a small block of Hexamine for pre-heating - rather than the 'ball of flame'.... Reason for replacement? Could not obtain a few inches of 3 mm bore petrol proof hose for stove to fuel bottle. Ed from Birmingham.
