Optimus Polaris Optifuel Stove


Product Details

The Optimus Polaris Optifuel Stove is an ISPO award winner in the Outdoor Stove category and there's no question as to why. This stove raises the bar for all other camping stoves because of its insane versatility and ease of use. Don't fret if you only packed one type of fuel--the Polaris Optifuel utilizes Single Jet Technology, meaning both LPG gas canisters and liquid gas (kerosene, diesel, jet fuel and white fuel) are compatible without having to change anything on the stove. The Polaris also comes prepared with the MAGIC cleaning needle, which allows you to quickly clean the stove--even while cooking. After whipping up a meal for the whole camp and the weather takes a turn for the worse, it doesn't mean you have to go without some post-meal coffee. Just set up the heat reflector windscreen, flip the LPG canister upside down, and engage 4-season mode to increase the heat output, so you can boil water, even in rapidly dropping temps. If you're racing daylight to make a meal, the patented quick-priming burner cuts down on pre-heating time and allows water to boil in just four minutes. When you're done cooking, the self-purging FLIPSTOP pump safely clears the burner of fuel and depressurizes the fuel bottle, permitting you to safely dismantle it before loading it back in the stuff bag.

Price : $ 179.95

Camping Stoves Checklist

What Type of Stove? For general campground use, get a campground/propane stove. They are far easier to cook with, and have more options, than a backpacking stove.
Fuel Type? A dual fuel stove is always handy, especially for a backpacking stove. However, for general camping use with a campground/propane stove, it's still hard to beat propane. You can buy propane canisters nearly anywhere.
For Backpacking... My preference are liquid fuel stoves. They are more versatile and fuel costs are lower. Still, there are some advantages to canister stoves...especially if you don't mind the higher fuel cost that goes with them.
Don't Invite the Bears to Dinner! When in Montana or Yellowstone Park, the number #1 way to invite a bear to dinner is to leave your stove (and pots/pans) lying around right after cooking. So...don't be lazy. Clean-up once you're done cooking and put your stove in your vehicle.
