firstname.lastname@example.org a review of Optimus Crux Stove with Terra Weekend HE Cook Set on May 5, 2013
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.
