Optimus - Cooking since 1899

Optimus is a Swedish company that has been manufacturing outdoor stoves and accessories for more than a century. At the end of 2007 Optimus was integrated into the Katadyn Group.

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.
