OPTIMUS - Clever Cooking Since 1899


Optimus has its origins in Sweden and has been manufacturing outdoor stoves and accessories for more than a century. Savor every outdoor experience with outdoor cooking equipment that is safe and easy to use.

Gas stoves are simplest. Many people who cook in the outdoors choose a gas stove because of its simplicity. You don’t have to fill it with fuel, it’s quick to light, and easy to control. A multi-fuel stove, as the name implies, gives you the flexibility of using different fuels. A white gasoline stove in an ultra classic lightweight design gives you the performance you need at high altitudes.

The Optimus family of hard anodized cookware has been expanded for 2008 with the Optimus Terra Solo, Optimus Terra Weekend, and Optimus Terra Kettle products. The classic Optimus Terra is of course still available for serious backpackers looking for the most innovative cookware system on the market.
