Explorer 3X Three-Burner Stove is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camp Stove! Been Camping for 50 Years. Bought this Stove so we could cook Steak. You need High Heat to cook a good Steak! This works best! Got rid of our old suitcase stoves for this one. Nothing better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Robust I use this stove for family 4x4 trips. Although it's really big, we found it an ideal solution for a lot of people. I got the 2 burner griddle and made my own hot pot for water so we have on demand hot water all the time. We could have gotten away with using the 2 burner because a large pot of water stays hot for a long time, but the 3 burner is a really stable platform for holding scalding hot water. We've used the wind shield before, and it definitely helps. We were still able to sort of simmer in 10mph gusty wind. My only complaint is the propane hose attachment angle makes it easy to damage the fuel line. I've been trying to find a 45° or 90° to add inline, but I haven't been able to find a 3/8" flare to flare fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping the Heat Outside This thing is GREAT! Potato Salad, no need to heat up the house boiling potatoes. Cast iron pan searing steaks, why fill the house with smoke? I just ordered the folding sides and can't wait to get them on the stove. I am happy with this purchase and may add the pizza oven. Thanks, Harry

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Stove I baught this stove because I go camping and fishing a lot! I have an old 3 burner but it is so heavy and hard for me to load up and set up so I set it up on my patio permanatley , and I use the new one for camping! This is a great stove so easy to set up and level. I put the electronic igniters on it and it is son nice to use! I have tried it at home and love it! Can't wait for my first camping trip. I baught the griddle and I'm going to get the Barbque for it. It's Top quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stove! I really like this little guy. I have it setup by my pellet smoker and it works great. The big test was to have all 3 burners on, full tilt. They pump out the flame all the way across! Very impressive! I would buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stove I love this stove, with reservations. I use it not only camping, but also to can on. I can put it on the deck and run 3 canners, 1 on my kitchen stove, 2 on this stove. The only complaint I have is that if there is even the slightest breeze, I can't keep the burners lit when I'm cooking something that requires a low setting. My husband has made me a shield that slips down abound the lets and that has helped enormously. I never dreamed I'd have this problem with the canisters that are around the burners. Other than that, the stove is wonderful.
