Explorer 2X Two-Burner Stove is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual Meat Cooking in Cast Iron Bought from Big 5 with Shelves and carrying bag. Now looking at the cost, i really saved money with Big 5. Finally got a change to setup and use to cook two Vietnamese foods, one of port spare ribs and the other of chicken gizzards. My family was finally together for my daughters baby shower. took two cast iron post and cooked on both burners with a full propane tank. Both cooked great and the family almost killed both dishes. the stove performed great, and throughly enjoyed cooking on it. Setup was easy, since i had attached all parts prior. Once cool, put back in the bag for storage. Plan to use this on our RV outings so i don't smell up the RV with Vietnamese and Cajun cooking. I could kick myself for not cooking on this stove earlier. So easy to setup and use. Have to remember to seek shade as cannot see flames in Arizona sun. Will add pictures at the next cookout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Relialble I've literally used this hot-burning stove hundreds of times camping across the U.S. The It's been incredibly reliably - much more reliable than past stoves I've tried. The rings the pots sit on are rusted but this thing keeps plugging away. Sorry Camp Chef - I give it another five years of fairly brutal usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove Purchased this stove a few weeks ago to burn down some maple sap to make maple syrup and the stove was outstanding. Ran the stove for over 7 hours on one tank of propane. The stove provided plenty of heat. Looking forward to using the stove this summer for camping and outdoor cooking by the pool. Very happy and satisfied so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful outdoor cooking We love our camp chef cook stoves. We own two, One two burner and one 3 burner. we use the two burner on camping trips. The three burner we have on our patio for family cookouts. The griddle is a must accessory. Cooks steaks to perfection. We also have two dutch ovens that we use on our camp chef stove. We make camp fire beans, chicken pot pie, and wonderful layered potatoes in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Outdoor Stove Available! I purchased this stove a couple of months ago and have since been on 2 week long hunts with this stove and it cant be beat. I hunt at elevation 9000 feet and have always used a brand well known for camping equipment. It took about 45 minutes to boil water or get my coffee perking. With this new stove I can have my water at a hard boil in 5 minutes. It is no longer a major waste of time for food prep leaving more time to enjoy the outdoors. Buy one, you will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ Stove I purchased this from Dicks sporting Goods last week. I use the stove in my back yard on a concrete slab to do all my frying. Pan frying, deep frying, etc. The heat output on this thing is just insane, When you need to crank it to a higher setting, the flame screams like a jet engine. There is also a knob behind the faceplate where you can adjust the oxygen level so you get the perfect blue flame with orange tip, doing this will ensure you are getting the max heat out of the burners. Now im looking to buy accessories lol. Next on my list is the 14" griddle so I can do some habachi style cooking outdoors lol. If you are thinking about buying it, just bite the bullet and get it. It is well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An awesome piece of equipment - highly recommended I imported this from the US of A to Scotland as I had heard so many positive reviews and watched you tube videos. Upon receipt I had to swap out the gas regulator; a relatively simple process. After testing for gas leaks I fired up the burners and boy, are they powerful. I boiled 4 gallons of water in just over 10 minutes using the Camp Chef Aluminium water urn. This is an extremely well made and functional gas stove - and extremely portable too. I'm a Camp Chef convert - please set up a distributor in Scotland!! :-)
