Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes car camping easy I bought this a month ago and am happy we did. We chose the Camp Chef over the Coleman stoves because the Camp Chef burner lighter is one that you twist to light a burner. The other ones on the market you push in and then the stove slides on the table or you spill a hot of hot liquid or something. Also this stove heats water very fast. The only thing I wasn't crazy about is the brass line that screws into the stove kinda flops around a lot. However, the nut on the brass line for fuel (on the CC) has a raised cross hatch pattern (knurling) this is way better than the Coleman as you don't slip as much when you thread it in. Hope this helps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stove 'COOKS' We have tent camped for years and had an old Coleman 2 burner stove with the gas tank that hangs on the front. It served us well. As our kids got older we finally quit cooking at camp sites and went out to dinner. Now, it is just my wife and I and we decided to get a new stove an start cooking at the camp site again. We bot this stove at our local REI a few weeks ago. This stove is so superior for cooking, so much heat! Easy to use, love the small propane tanks. This stove cranks 40,000 BTU, the next stove down in price had 20,000 BTU....I am telling you to pay the extra $30 for this stove. A great investmet, you will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Slightly Better than the Camp Chef Everest Full disclosure: I have the Camp Chef Everest which appears to be almost the same minus some improvements (this version has adjustable legs and updated knobs (valves?). I love this stove. It lights easy with the built in lighter. But hands down the amount of heat that it puts out is phenomenal. It makes cooking on it a breeze. The 1lb Propane tank adapter was a bit hard to get on at first. But that seems to get easier the more I use it. Not annoying enough to detract from how much I love to use this stove.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality control and/or manufacturing Was excited to buy this stove for our summer car camping trips. Local REI had it in stock. I purchased based on other positive reviews. When I got the stove home, unboxed it and began assembling the parts (gas fitting and feet), two of the threaded holes for the feet were drilled and tapped about 2 sizes bigger than the threads on the feet. This was only the case for 2 of the four holes in the bottom. It would seem like if they use the wrong bit and tap size it would be an issue in all 4 holes. My guess is that the drilling and tapping is done manually and whoever did the drilling and tapping has no clue how to use those tools correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and lots of power I bought this after returning a Primus two-burner stove because its fuel hose was near-impossible to attach. I was very satisfied with this Camp Chef stove! It lights up with one easy turn of the knob, and the heat is very adjustable from a low simmer to super intense. I like the feet and the carry handle. The plastic latches feel a little cheap, and may not last very long, which I'm deducting a star for. Other than that, I have no complaints about this stove. And the fuel pipe is very easy to attach, unlike the Primus I returned. Overall very satisfied with this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Grill Did a one night camp test with all our new gear. No rain or wind and the worked great. Easy to work. Wife and daughter had a bit of trouble turning the ignition knob. This thing gets crazy hot. We cooked burgers in a pan for dinner. We turned one burner on very very low and toasted the buns, one at a time even. Didn't get the toaster attachment. We had eggs and bacon for breakfast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control After much research I decided to go with the Camp Chef series. Even though the Everest model seemed to have the best reviews, I purchased the Summit model due to the "twist-knob" strike versus the "push-button" strike on the Everest (that seemed to be the only Everest complaint). Upon opening the box everything looked in order; however, once I sat the unit on the floor it was obviously racked horizontally. Both the cover and the main body of the unit would not lie flat and rocked diagonally. Pretty difficult to miss this at the factory. I will be returning this and trying the Everest. The only difference between the two, besides the strike, is that the Everest is about 2.5" deeper. Hopefully the additional steel resolves the racking issue.

Questions & Answers

Does the bottom of the stove get hot when cooking or could it be placed on a plastic table during use?

Asked by: Jared
I have previously used the Everest version of this stove directly on vinyl-covered camping tables without a problem.  This unit has the same BTU output AND standoff legs that would insulate it even further.   I don't think you'd have a problem with the bottom of the stove getting hot enough to damage the table.

The Summit appears to have different specs in terms of size and details some construction info. Is there a list of differences that goes into more detail than "Updated dials?" is the an REI exclusive also?

Asked by: Donovan
Correct, the Summit has new knob styles, includes a rotary ignition and has rubber feet for more level cooking. The Summit 2-Burner is not an REI Exclusive item.

If i want to connect this stove to 20 lb propane tank, should i use the high pressure hose or the low pressure? Does it matter?

Asked by: Irene
The pressure in a 20 lb. propane tank is approximately 150 psi at room temperature (and double that at 130 degrees F. - think out in the sun). With the regulator at the stove, you better be using a high pressure hose or you WILL have a serious problem.

Why is this camp stove not listed on the Camp Chef website? Is it REI exclusive, or an older model?

Asked by: Smokie86
I just bought the Summit yesterday(6/5/2017) from REI, went to look at specs on the Camp Chef site and could not find it, I contacted them and was told that this stove WAS made and sold exclusive for and at REI.

Why do the fuel bottles ice up immediately?  I wanted to love this stove but I could only get it to hold power by constantly changing out and rewarming the new 1 lb canisters.  Nobody else has commented on this in the reviews. It was only 50F.   

Asked by: Poppy
​There are many different factors that come into play when using gas canisters and why they might be freezing. One of which is because of vaporization, the changing of liquid to gas which takes energy. In a canister, that energy comes from the latent heat in the fuel mixture itself, which is usually why a stove canister will become noticeably cooler while the stove is operating. When in colder temperatures this effect can drive the canisters temperature way done and can possibly stop working.

Love that the Camp Chef Summit puts out a bunch of BTU's to boil water, but how is the simmer mode...

Asked by: Bivwac
This stove does allow you to simmer.
