Optimus's Terra HE Cookset is a great lightweight aluminium set up for group cooking. This set features a fry pan which is a good size and also two large pots. The larger of the two has a heat exchanger which speeds up boil time. The pots have clear measurement increments on the inside, for easy cooking.
Even the most dependable stove needs a pot or pan to do more than just look cool. Like all of our versatile sets, the Terra HE Cook Set is made of rugged anodized aluminum now with a non-stick coating to keep up with the ease of use of our reliable stoves. This set with three cookware pieces is the daddy of them at 720 g. It comes with our special heat exchanger (that’s what the “HE” means!) that cuts “time to boil” by 20%. You get a smile on your face thanks to quicker “cook to feed” time and thanks to the HE system’s fuel-saving efficiency. You can stir, sauté, simmer, fricassee or fry with the two pots and tough-as-nails non-stick fry pan (doubles as a pot lid). One separate pot lifter fits them all.
A slim neoprene cosy keeps fingers ouch-free, food warm, and scratches at bay, while also putting a dent in fuel use. Just take the boiling water off the flame, put the pot into the cosy and let your noodles continue to boil in the hot water without burning anymore fuel. Included is our practical and cute little BOB sponge.
The cook set also magically finds space inside for our titanium cutlery set and any Optimus stove.
This is the `top of the range` cookset from Optimus if you are looking for a group cookset that uses heat exchanger technology has non stock pans includes clear unambiguous volume graduations and is big enough for 3-4 people; then the Terra HE Cookset sets that standard.
