For excellent efficiency and precision cooking on a low flame use the Efficiency Mode. Alternatively, when cooking in cold temperatures or when extra fast boil times are needed, just open the integrated gas canister support legs and turn your gas canister upside down and continue cooking in the 4 Season Mode. This reducies cooking time by as much as 20%.
Taking advantage of the remote gas cartridge the Optimus Vega has the lowest profile in its category. This means superior stability, especially for larger pots. The included windscreen with rounded corners easily adjusts to two sizes.
