Camp Chef Explorer Double Burner Stove
2 Cast Aluminum Burners; 60,000 total BTU/hr; 32" Cooking Height; Detachable Legs; 3-Sided Windscreen

The Good:

  • Very well made and sturdy
  • Easy to set up and use
  • Great large size and cooking space
  • Lots of available add-ons to purchase

The Bad:

  • Rather heavy and not easy to carry
  • Carrying and storage bag not included with the stove
  • More expensive than other tabletop stoves
  • All add-ons are rather expensive, increasing the overall price

The Final Say:

The Camp Chef 14″ 2 Burner stove is an awesome addition to family camping equipment. This stove is great for car campers (people camping within walking distance of their car) and will take your camping cooking abilities to the next level. The stove is very well made and sturdy but is not a good option if you are concerned about space or will be backpacking to your camping location.

The Full Review

I was tired of cooking over a fire with uneven heat and using table-top stoves, which offered far less cooking space. I decided to purchase the Camp Chef 14″ 2 Burner Stove and I’ve never looked back since. This stove offers a large cooking space and the ability to fine-tune the amount of heat on each burner. I’ve been very happy with the purchase and now use it as our only stove on all our family camping trips.


This stove is very easy to use. Simply take out the stove, attach the four legs, attach the propane tank and you are ready to cook.


This Camp Chef stove is the most durable and well-made stoves I’ve used on any of our camping trips. The stove is made of very sturdy metal and you don’t feel as if you will break it when assembling, using or storing it.


Size is one of the best features of this stove. It has ample room to cook large means using anything from small pots to large skillets that cover the entire cooking surface. The size of the Camp Chef 14″ 2 Burner makes it easy to cook almost any meal you want while camping.


Portability is one area that this stove struggles. While it is not hard to set up you definitely won’t be using this stove if you have to carry it any real distance. At 33lbs it is not the easiest stove to carry. The legs do detach, which gives you the ability to pack the stove into it’s carrying bag but even with that it is still a large stove to move around.


The stove itself does not have too many features outside of an included windbreak but Camp Chef sells many add-ons, providing more features and abilities. You can purchase 1 or 2 burner griddles, grill boxes, outdoor ovens, pots, pans, and more.
