The heavy-duty lightweight. Meet the Optimus Crux, a compact 3000w stove engineered to hide away under a gas canister. This seemingly impossible feat is accomplished with a foldable burner neck and serrated pot supports which are also designed to fold away for packing. it’s hard to find a stove that’s more compact and convenient than the Optimus Crux, and despite its size, the power of the Optimus Crux is right up there with the big boys at 3000w. Why carry more than needed? All you’d ever need for a dinner date with Mother Nature is right here.

Product Features

  • 2 inch diameter burner distributes heat widely onto the cooking pot reducing the risk of spot burning food.
  • Turbine shaped, serrated pot supports provide increased stability.
  • Extremely compact thanks to the innovative foldable burner head.
  • Optimus Crux is made from stainless and durable materials but weighs a mere 3.3 oz.
  • The unique stuff bag makes the stove pack flush with the bottom of the LP-gas canister.

Scout proof (almost) I bought this tiny little stove to go backpacking in Yellowstone with my boy’s scout troop last summer. I also purchased a flint striker so I didn’t have to worry about lighters or wet matches. We used only to boil water for the freeze dried food and coffee. 14 campers with three stoves for 2 weeks, my Optimus and 2 Primus stoves (optimus primus? Transformer fans…) The Optimus Crux boiled the water faster but was not as stable with a 2 quart pot. Had to keep an eye on it, bounced a bit…

Soooooo small. TINY. If you want to cut down on weight, this stove is great. You may have to mind the valve a bit more than on other stoves, but it is well built, cooks fast, and provides a sturdy base for small pots.

This stove is amazing If you are looking for an UL stove, this is it. I own the MSR Whisperlite and wanted something UL since that’s the direction I’m finally moving in the backpacking world. The Crux is tiny. It fits neatly under a fuel canister for storage. It needs slight adjusting while cooking but you can simmer with it or crank it to full blast. It cools down pretty quick too.
