    Not lightest or fastest but versatile!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Elektra FE is a very quick and efficient and versatile stove system.



    It is a pretty easy stove to light with the included piezo ignitor. It would be more convenient and a little bit lighter if it had an ignitor built into the stove. Another down side is that the control valve is a little bit finicky. Trying to adjust the flame with any precision is quite difficult but turning it all the way up for boiling water works great.



    The pot does not lock onto the stove but because of the wide burner and pot holders and the tightly fitted wind screen it does not feel like it will fall over easily. Because it does not lock on you can cook on this stove with other pots without any special attachments which I really enjoy. The lid of the pot can also be flipped over and used as a fry pan although it is a bit small to really cook anything significant. One other problem with the lid/fry pan is if you pull the fold able handle out all the way it gets stuck in the pot making the lid difficult to remove.



    The wind screen is a very nice feature. It attaches on the ring of the fuel canister making it very sturdy and easy to slide around depending on the wind direction. I have not used the stove in high winds yet but the screen is well built and seems like it would work well.



    The stove, an 8oz canister of fuel and ignitor all fit into the the pot and that goes into a mesh bag. I find it is easier to put the bag on over the top so you cinch the bag down over the bottom of the pot. Other wise you deal with the lid falling off trying to get it in and out of the bag.



    the stove seems quite durable. The pot is made of hard anodized aluminum and seems like it will last me a long time.



    All in all this stove is a great for backpacking and boiling water and with a little bit of patience in adjusting the flame can also be great for more gourmet back country cooking.

    Small and MIGHTY!

    As the previous reviewer said, the heat exchanger is magic! I have never been able to do so much on so little fuel. I tested this system on a 2 week camping trip in Alaska with my girlfriend, and it never once failed to perform. Exceeded all of our expectations and continues to do so. I've now had this system a little under a year and it still performs just like day one. I am embarrassed to say I was almost swayed by the hype of some other brands.

    Didn't your mother teach you to share?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I organize group adventure backpacks several times a year, and every hike, at least one guy brings one of those overspecialized half-liter wonders (ahem, the ones that start with Jet and end with Boil). Every time, *that guy* proudly boils up a cup or two in his tiny little pot, and I boil water and cook and fry and sear and simmer and fricken' fricasee for the rest of the group with my trusty Primus. I don't understand why people fall for the "personal cooking system" advertisment. Weight savings when you hike with a group is all about sharing equipment, and nobody needs a personal stove. Even when I hike solo or just in a pair, I still need at least a liter every time I boil, so the smaller cookers just don't cut it. In addition to serving as the perfect superlight group cooker, this little stove also conserves so much fuel that nobody trusts me when I tell them all I need is that little can. I think the heat exchanger is magic. For a group of 3 or 4 hikers for 2 or 3 nights, I can usually get by with just one can of fuel!!! CRAZY. So if you're weighing the options between a Jetboil that barely cooks enough water for one person and weighs as much as this Primus, get the Primus. Ditch the marketing hype. One small caveat: ALWAYS bring a lighter/matches. Piezo ignition is very unreliable at altitude. Not the stove's fault.

    I want to go camping with you! I'm usually the camp chef and the annoyances you describe really irk me as well. More so when I know those people have larger cook kits sitting at home, usually because I lent it to them!

    Fast and Light! Outa Sight!

    The Optimus Elektra FE Cook System offers a complete cooking setup in a lightweight compact package. I have used other stoves before (most memorably MSR and JetBoil cook systems), and while people make a big fuss about boil time, the biggest consideration for me has always been keeping space and weight at a minimum. The Elektra delivers in all of these respects, and even on the boil time. I would recommend this set to anyone look for a do-it-all system that you can use in a variety of situations.
