Let’s take a look at some NEW to our range stoves and pots and show you exactly what they’re all about. We’ll start with something familiar…
The Optimus Crux Stove
Need a tiny, feather light, yet ultra dependable stove? Look no further. The compact Crux has folding burner heads, transforming it into a compact, little thing that actually snuggles right up into the cavity at the bottom of your gas cartridge. Don’t be mislead: its 3000w burner is powerfully stable, distributing heat superbly and still delivering precision simmering, fast boiling, and no spot burning. Going light and fast into the backcountry demands this strong yet small stove be in your kit.
The Optimus Gemini Stove
The multi award winning Optimus Gemini double burner impresses greatly with high performance, minimal weight and a generously compact design.
High performance, a trailblazing lightweight construction made of durable, high-quality materials and an innovative, patented compact design are the hallmarks of the Optimus Gemini stove. Ideal for preparing multiple dishes, rapidly boiling water or constant simmering for several hours, the Gemini brings new flexibility to outdoor cooking. Two separate hand controls allow the flame power to be varied independently for each burner head, while the integrated pressure control valve stabilises the flame throughout the cooking process. This allows for precise cooking with efficient energy consumption. Raised edges protect the flames from wind and fold out legs on both sides ensure optimum stability even when using large pots. Its small footprint and light weight make the Optimus Gemini the ideal companion for any outdoor adventure where delicious food is a priority.
