    Might as well leave it in your pack.

    Your backpacking buddy said he'll bring the stove and all the pots needed for the next trip, but you'll pack the Optimus Crux Lite Solo Cook System anyway. It's just so light and compact, and it's always smart to have a spare when it comes to backpacking. The Crux Lite Stove is the lightest option offered by Optimus, and it packs inside the two included pots, which also pack into each other for compact storage. The pots also feature retractable handles, and Optimus included a mesh bag to store the cook system as well as utensils and a gas canister.

    Nice set!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like how the pots stack together, open ends facing each other to create a capsule. A small canister (not included) fits inside the large pot with the stove and it comes with a snug mesh bag that told it all together.

    Thee arms on the stove burner fold out and are sturdy holding the large pot full of water. Easy turntable gas release for ignition.

    I've used it to boil water for freeze dried food packets and have made tea and coffee in the pots. Making Backpacker's Pantry apple clobber in the pans was a sticky mess but the nonstick lining helped. There is a little pour spout on the large pot that makes it easy to get boiling water into a bag. Handles fold out and are sturdy, coated with green plastic/rubber for grip and protection against heat.

    I plan on getting a lot of use out of it and will update this review when "I've put it through the ringer."

    Nice set!

    You mention the set does not come with the fuel canister but there is one shown in the picture. I assume it comes with the stove. The other question is around my area Coleman 7-3/4 oz fuel canisters are readily available. They are about 3.5 inches high and 4-3/8 inches in diameter. Will it fit into the cookware?

    Hi Keith,
    Yes it comes with the stove :-)
    The smaller canisters will: I have one that is just shy of 3 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 1/2 inches tall.
    But! There is a larger model that will hold the canisters you have. It's the Optimus Crux Stove with Terra Weekend HE Cook Set.

    It's about $20 more and it's really good for cooking for two. My boyfriend has this larger one and it's holds the larger canisters that you have.
    Hope this helps!
