Ever since its beginnings more than a century ago, Primus has stood for cooking, lighting and heating. Roald Amundsen had a Primus stove among his supplies when he was the first person to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay used a Primus on Mount Everest when they reached the summit on 29 May 1953. Every day, all round the world millions of people use Primus stoves and lanterns. No matter whether you need to cook at the North Pole or in your own back garden, you can count on Primus to work.
