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.
At $100 the stove isn’t too expensive but it is more expensive than some of the other tabletop options. Where price really comes into effect is with the add-ons that you might want to buy for the stove. Most add-ons, such as the griddles, start at around $50 and go well over $100. Additionally, you must purchase the carrying case separately. If you decided to purchase the carrying case and an add-on or two the price can easily sore above $200.
- THE ORIGINAL CAMP COOKING SYSTEM- The stove is just a start; mix and match accessories like BBQ Grill boxes, professional griddles, reversible cast iron grills, and even artisan pizza ovens to create the camp kitchen you want.
- 2-PATENTED ALUMINUM BURNERS- Highly efficient "blue flame" burners with output of 30,000 BTU each. Connects to a bulk tank with included regulator and can be adapted (part sold separately) to disposable propane bottles or natural gas.
