The Nova Stove by Optimus. The legendary Optimus Nova is the benchmark for today's multifuel expedition stoves. This award winning workhorse has cooked millions of meals in the wilderness, and has become a favorite among serious backpackers. Why? A patented quick-priming burner, the self-purging aluminum pump and a built in magnetic cleaning needle are all features that ensure reliability and ease of use in all conditions. The single jet multifuel technology provides versatility throughout the world. Thanks to the collapsible turbine shaped pot support, a folding flame control and a new stuff bag, pack size is minimal. Despite the small format, Optimus Nova offers stability for large sized pots. So go out and get cooking.

FEATURES of the Optimus Nova Stove

  • Precise and immediate simmer control + fast boiling
  • Self cleaning system cleans burner jet fast and easily - no need to stop cooking
  • Durable aluminum pump and EZ quick connects enhance safety and ease of use
  • Patented quick priming burner requires less preheating and saves fuel
  • Burns all types of fuel - using same burner jet

Please note that stoves DO NOT include any fuel bottles or canisters pictured. Sorry about everything and please don't hate us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industructable & Reliable Stove Great stove, well worth the money, the perfect stove! I wanted something that would work not only in the summer months but also for snow camping. The stove is very easy to use, easy to light works in any weather condition. It has a nifty magnet tool that makes cleaning it supper easy. It’s pretty quite, doesn’t sound like a jet engine like some of the other liquid fuel stoves. It simmers just as well as it boils water, can even cook steaks and scrambled eggs perfectly. Light weight and built like a rock. Would defiantly recommend using the wind shield even if it’s not breezy, it really speeds up boiling water and helps conserve fuel. I highly recommend this stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love this stove I originally purchased this stove for backpacking, but have moved to an alcohol stove for solo trips in order to cut weight. This sucker is a little on the heavy side, but all tanks are. That said when car camping, or when with a group this stove can't be beat. Its super stable, the flame control is so precise you can cook a gourmet dinner on it, or crank it to melt snow. It doesn't have plastic parts, and has a self cleaning jet. I've had mine six years and have yet had to strip it down and clean it.,,,,You can burn motor fuel (gasoline or diesel fuel) in this stove in a pinch, but it does tend to clog the jet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very versatile stove I've owned this stove for about a year now and have used it on three longer hikes in the Swedish mountains. So far I have not had any problems with it though I have used the cleaning tool after every use. It does take some time to learn how to pre-heat the stove but just experiment a couple of times at home in a safe area with the fuel you are likely to use the most. Its all about starting the stove at the right moment, when the pre-heating fuel is just about to burn out. ,,,,The only drawback I can think of is that it doesnt deliver the same amount of power as for instance the MSR XGK EX.,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy One! I currently own three Multi-Fuel stoves. The MSR DragonFly, the Primus Vari-Fuel and the Optimus Nova. ,,The Nova is the most compact of the three with its curved legs. ,,The flame adjust is very good on both the MSR and the Nova, the Vari-Fuel only has a control knob on the fuel tank which causes a delay at the flame. ,,The Nova and Primus both have solid aluminum vs the brittle MSR plastic pumps...This is probably the largest differentiating factor. ,,The Nova and Vari both have the same style of fuel line purge that prevents you from getting sprayed with fuel.,,The Nova has a quick disconnect fuel line which the others do not. ,,To me, the Optimus Nova is the clear winner in all aspects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Owned this for the past month and have tried many different fuel types, even automotive gasoline. It takes a lot of practice to learn how to prime it properly, but it works very well after you overcome the learning curve. It does NOT come with a fuel bottle, so be sure to add one to cart. I brought this to the attention of a Moosejaw customer service rep, they updated the description and went out of their way to more than make things right. Excellent service, I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as easy as a canister stove i was looking for a stove to cook lunch on at work, so i started with the easiest out there a canister stove ... so about half a million $5 cans of fuel later I started to think I may need something a little better than a pocket rocket.,,,,so here i am, it was on sale nice adjustable flame unlike most out there its not just an on or off stove.,,,,if i was shopping all over again I'd still pick this stove

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best backpacking stove I've ever used! Awesome stove!! I replace my whisperlite with it and it makes a huge difference! The stove starts right up. It's easy to prime and holds a steady flame. The pump is all metal, MUCH better than my MSR plastic pump. The only issue is when disconnecting the fuel line. Make sure ALL the air pressure is released first, or else all the fuel will come shooting out under pressure when you disconnect the hose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it is very good for camping but not for climbing. I use this stove for 2 years. I use to it. But it is more complex than other stoves. if the reliability is the most important thing for you this is not the stove for you. I broke the nut under the stove. On the other hand you can use almost every kind of fuel and it is very light weight. You can adjust fire so you can cook delicious meal. I think it is very good for camping but not for climbing.
