Optimus Terra Cookset in the House!

Posted on

I have used my Optimus Terra .6 L Solo Cookset for years now off an on. The great thing about the Optimus Terra .6 L Solo Cookset is that is can hold a 110g IsoButane canister and a Crux Stove inside it, and gets wrapped up in a nice mesh bag. I changed out my bag to a shock cord string cause it seemed to be better at holding the push button mechanism in place. The Optimus Terra .6 L Solo Cookset works well, is made of anodized aluminum and is lightweight. Has nice markings to show how much liquid to add, etc. Berz Rating: 93/100

Specs:
Size: 4.2 in. x 5.4 in.
Weight: 7.1 oz.

AWESOME

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Light weight, fasy boiling, compact. My favorite features are the option to put the fuelin the main pot along with the folding stove and i also put a sea to summit folding cup in it and use the neoprene cover instead of the top pot/cover to make it more compact.

Good as advertised

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Boiled water super fast. I primarily use this as a way to get my coffee made in the mornings while I camp. Has not disappointed.

Awesome for backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this item because a buddy of mine got one for the holidays and we tested it out on an alpine tour in the Wasatch - what we call "soup jam." It cooks very quickly and is easy to use. Lightweight and packable.

Stuff sack comes with and you can fit the fuel canister and stove within the pot and lid for a nice snug fit to pack away.

Not As Advertised!

I picked up this set because I knew I wanted the stove and thought with the identified weight in the Backcountry.com description that I would be saving weight over my Coleman pot set from Wally World.

Instead, I found that the weights listed for this set are WRONG - bad wrong! The set actually weighs 14.3 ounces, almost a full pound and 4.6 ounces more than the advertised weight. The pot and its stuff sack alone (without the stove) weighs 10.5 ounces (9.9 ounces w/out the sack).

So I am really disappointed, especially since this pot & lid actually weighs MORE than my Wal-Mart cookset. I thought about sending it back but really like the stove and don't want to deal with the hassle of trading it all out.

As stated, I really like the stove and recommend it fully but cannot recommend this set, especially since you can get something cheaper, equally well made, and lighter in the camping section at at Wal-Mart.

i love the stove .. but....

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

you will not find a faster, easier canister stove set up. with the crux and the weekender HE pot, i've boiled 2 cups of fairly cold tapwater in 1:20, with average around 1:30. super fast. my only gripes are that the graduated measurements on the inside of the pot, while convienent, are inaccurate. the marks are 2 ounces more than actual amount of water ('16' is actually 14 etc..) the other, is that i haven't found a way to cook anything in the "frying pan" lid that hasn't required painstaking cleaning to remove from the bottom. if anyone has had any luck cooking pancakes or eggs please let me know. other than those 2 things.. this stove has completely exceded my expectations and is a pleasure to use. great job optimus.

Great stove

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

First time out boiled water for three and we all were impressed how fast it worked. Used the fry pan/lid to help. Just what I wanted and it meets all expectations. Others were impressed with how small it folds and fits under the canister.

Does the pot and frying pan have a non-stick...

Does the pot and frying pan have a non-stick coating?

Hey Sean Chism,

I checked on your question and I found that the Terra Weekend HE Cook Set that comes with the Optimus Crux stove does not have non stick coating.

Optimus Crux w/HE Cookset, Very Functional

Just received the Optimus Crux Stove with Terra Weekend HE Cook Set, and am very impressed with overall quality, design, and functionality.

The stove itself is very compact and lightweight. In the open position the stove will be about 3" tall, with the same length while folded and laying flat. The cooking surface (for lack of a better term right now) opens up to a diameter if approximately 4", fitting the AL pot and pan perfectly and safely on top. The folding feature is pretty genius, allowing the stove to pack down small enough to fit easily into the concavity of pretty much any ~230g isopro fuel canister. I tested this out initially with a 227g MSR Isopro canister and the fit was just fine.

Optimus has included with this cook set a small neoprene/mesh carrying case that ingeniously and securely stores the folded stove beneath a fuel canister with ease. I will include an image or video with this review to better demonstrate how this system works.

The HE aluminum pot is designed well, having a small pouring spout and a comfortable grip. The heat exchanger works incredibly well, saving fuel and reducing energy consumption, while boiling water in about 3 minutes. The measurements being listed on the inside of the pot are also a solid feature, allowing one to see exactly how much water is inside the container. I'm also a fan of the fry pan as it may double as a lid for the pot, reducing boil times. An excellent little pan for eggs, biscuits, or anything else you could imagine cooking in it.

My only complaint is that the cooking 'spines' are somewhat hard to extend from time to time, but that's not enough of a problem to deduct a star.

my favorite

I did a lot of research before purchasing this cook set/stove and one reason I almost didn't purchase it was the lack of written reviews. So here is what I have to say: amazing. As an avid back country hunter I needed something that could boil water fast at high altitudes. My first test run with this was at 8900 feet elevation. I boiled the .95 L under three minutes. Fast! the reason I didn't go with a jet boil is that I sometimes pack eggs and pancake mix for longer treks and need a frying pan. The versatility of this stove cannot be matched. Also, the way the stove folds: BRILLIANT! Why did it take someone so long to develop this? I prefer the larger burners for heat distribution reasons, but have always disliked how awkward they are to pack. Because the stove folds away under an 8 oz fuel canister it is 10 times easier to consolidate my cooking gear. Very well though out design and if this one breaks I will purchase another one. However, I am confident it wont break. I will add photos later.

Pretty Basic, Functional

Fairly lightweight stove, pot and pan are average weight. The entire set up (including a fuel canister) fits inside the large pot, which is nice as it keeps all your cookware in one place. The valve is really touchy though. When adjusting the flame, the valve will sometimes completely turn off, and I have to relight the stove. Once the valve is set though, it puts out a nice, broad flame and boils water fairly fast.
