Providing maximum versatility for no-matter-what backcountry cooking the innovative Optimus Polaris Optifuel stove utilizes Single Jet Optifuel Technology to allow it to function as a canister (sold separately) stove or operate with the use of any number of liquid fuels.

The Polaris Optifuel’s unique Single Jet has a built-in magnetic cleaning needle that ensures reliability for burning propane white gas kerosene or any number of liquid fuels (NOTE: Do not use automobile gasoline as it is volatile extremely flammable and often releases hazardous vapors when ignited). It will boil water in as little 3.4 minutes using white gas depending on climate altitude and other factors.

The stove can also be used with an Optimus butane/propane gas canister (sold separately). In colder conditions you can invert the canister to conserve fuel and improve 4-season performance.

A quick-priming burner offers reliable performance even in challenging conditions. The burner rests inside a lightweight aluminum housing that connects to three sturdy fold-away pot supports. Serrated to better support pots and toothed to improve overall stove stability the legs offer a wide cooking base but collapse against the housing of the stove to keep packed size to a minimum.

The Optimus Polaris Optifuel stove includes a 0.4 L fuel bottle a heat-reflecting windscreen and a stuff bag.

well worth the money

Likes: it may not be the smallest stove out there, but for the $, this stove can't be beat. Love the dual fuel capability, and the ability to boil, simmer and generally control temps. takes your backpack cooking to a new dimension

Dislikes: um, nothing ;-)
