SOLDATKÖK 09, K M2824-064011-7

At the end of 2007, the Swedish Optimus company was integrated into the Swiss Katadyn Group. Since its formation in Stockholm in 1899, Optimus has been developing and improving its products to become the clear first choice of demanding users throughout the world.

A more specialist product range for more extreme conditions is the OPTIMUS SOLDIER STOVE 09. This personal cooking system has been developed for the Swedish Armed forces and became operational during 2010. It will also be used by EU’s rapid deployment force (Nordic Battle Group 11). It combines a range of fuelling options to ensure cooking is possible when temperatures plummet.

The major benefits of the Soldier Stove are: 

  • Four season usage with an operational temperature range of -40⁰C to +45⁰C 
  • Light weight and small pack volume
  • Easy to use and minimum requirement of training 
  • Operational flexibility, possibility to bring only parts of the system on a missiondepending on climate, altitude, length of mission etc. 
  • Durability with no anticipated need for field maintenance or repair 

The Soldier Stove is of modular design and consists of an Optimus Crux Lite gas burner, an alcohol burner, a cooking pot, cutlery, a fire-resistant and multifunctional cloth, and other useful cooking accessories. Also included in the set are Micropur tablets for treating drinking water. As most components are made of titanium or hard-anodized aluminum, the whole set weighs less than one kg (excluding fuel) and fits into a small bag. With this modular system, the troops will be optimally equipped for any assignment, be it a short-term or a long-term mission in hot or in cold climate zones.
