Meet the Optimus Crux, a ninety-three gram (3.2 oz) stove engineered to hide away under a gas canister. This seemingly impossible feat is accomplished with a fold-able burner neck and serrated pot supports 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 3000 W. Why carry more than needed? All you'd ever need for a dinner date with Mother Nature is right here.

    Comments about Crux Stove:

    Great little stove I bought it separate from the Terra Solo cook set but ended up pairing up with the terra solo in the end anyway. The stove is well made the ball joint moves freely to collapse and extend the burner. It fits nicely under a 100g canister and the case is a nice touch as it prevents it from scratching the inside of your pot/kettle. Together with the Terra Solo cook set mine boiled 16oz of water in 2 minutes and 42 seconds at room tempature. The flame adjustment works well and provides good simmer control. This is my go to canister stove for 3-5 day hikes.

      Love the compact lightweight design. Good output and efficiency. I got it with HE cookset. Average boil time is about 2 min. Superfast!

          This is a small stove and is designed to cook for 1 or 2 people. It would definitely support boiling a liter of water, but if you're looking for more than that you may want a bigger stove (for both convenience and support).
