7 Years and going!

I have had my Explorer for 7 years now and it is going strong! We went from tent to Pop-up to Travel Trailer now and have only cooked on our CC. My Father-in-law and 2 brothers-in-law also have them. Have almost all of the accessories. My only issue is that it seems to get heavier every year?! LOL It IS the only thing we cook on, period! I also bought a CC WW smoker and the 600FTG as well!

Scout Approved!

I volunteer heavily with both the BSA and the GSA and needed something to be portable and have the ability to cook a decent amount of food. I bought the Explorer 14 2 Burner Stove And the full size griddle for it. It was easy to assemble, Easy to clean, and I was able to cook two breakfasts and a dinner with ease for a troop of hungry Girlscouts this past weekend. It also heats up water for dishes and cocao pretty fast! Looking back I wish I had also purchased the single burner griddle and the leg levelers. Overall a great stove. It is going to go with me on all future camp outs!

I bought my Explorer 14 3 years ago to add to my new RV. The RV has an outboard 1/2psi propane quick connect. I fabricated my own 3' quick connect hose from a store bought 3' long, 3/8" female flair hose. I fitted 1 end with a 1/4" male quick connect. A cupla extension hoses later , and I was in business. Have used it boondocking for 3 years. Love it!! Boils water in minutes for dishes. Cooks anything like a home gas stove easily and with good heat control.

A great cooker for camping and even at the House

I have taken this cooker out camping and it's great! it's a little bigger than the compact cooker but the heat definitely makes up for the extra size. You can boil water quicker and cook for a larger group. I really do like this setup.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.
