An ideal option for thru-hikers and ultra-lightweight enthusiasts the Optimus Crux Lite Solo Cook System combines cookware and a lightweight cook stove into a single unit that weighs just 7.1 ounces.
Made of durable stainless materials the Crux Lite stove's 2 inch-diameter burner effectively distributes heat providing an even cooking surface for backcountry meals. Depending on altitude and temperature conditions this tiny powerhouse can boil a quart of water in as little as 3 minutes! An integrated foldable burner control allows you to adjust the height of the flame without any fear of burning your hand.
Three ergonomic serrated pot supports lend stability and accommodate most backpacking pots pans and skillets. Folded out of the way the pot supports tuck under the head of the burner.
A .95L hard-anodized aluminum cook pot employs a non-stick surface to make cooking and cleaning up a snap. An included lid doubles as a frypan. Measuring 4.2” x 5.4" the pot can enclose the stove a fuel canister (sold separately) and a folding utensil (also sold separately).
NOTE: The Crux Lite stove requires the use of a canister of Optimus Gas (sold separately). A blend of 70% butane and 30% propane Optimus Gas provides consistent reliable 3-season backcountry performance. No priming or pumping is needed when using Optimus Gas canisters. An 8-ounce canister of Optimus Gas will provide up to 90 minutes of burn time at the highest maximum output.

Real Customer Reviews
- very happy
Likes: super light! the burner packs down so small! pot handles luck away well and are still very strong.
I recommend this item, especially for backpackers.
the burner burns really well, much faster than my other burner, holds the posts very close with a wider flame than some.
Dislikes: small small things... when using a very low flame it can go out by itself occasionally, a little more than other burners do
also hinges on the arms can get a tad stiff
