If you read my post yesterday, you’ll have noticed that I had my sights set on the Optimus Crux Weekend HE cook system. They happened to have one at the store today when I was browsing and decided to go ahead and pick it up.
I have big plans for this thing and it’s going to get used A LOT. I have a couple options when it comes to eating lunch at work: bring something to cook in the microwave and eat at my desk (since they forgot a break room when they built this building!??) or go out and get fast food.
With this, I plan on bringing more stuff that I can cook on the stove, soups, pastas and whatever else. Then I can go to one of the nearby parks, sit down under a tree or on a bench and have a hot meal not only away from the office, but it will likely end up costing me less in food. At least that’s my justification for spending $80 on the thing!
It’ll go camping/hunting/hiking and what not as well, but I think the frequency of use I have planned for it of at least 3 or 4 days a week should really prove whether this little guy is as good as the reviews I’ve been reading on it.
