Looks expensive.....but cheaper than a Partner! I just bought a Camp Chef Everest stove. Haven't used it yet, but if it is a total POS I will be sure to let the world know.

You are correct, but only by $0.01

Looks real nice to me. Plus, dont partner burners rate at 10k btu? This dude has two at 20k. I could be wrong on the partner burners seems I read it somewhere.

To be fair, this is a more apples to apples comparison- https://www.elementoutfitters.com/Pa...scstv222ws.htm

Looks nice, still a bit large and a little heavier than a partner.

I needed a new stove and almost went for the camp chef but ultimately decided to order a partner today. Can't ignore the track record and knowing that I will likely be able to pass the partner down to the next generation.

Yes, from what I can tell, this is Camp Chef's interpretation of a Partner, with a similar welded aluminum construction, or at least welded aluminum look.

It's 26" across, so bigger - a pro and a con. Bigger pans, that's for sure.

The burners are at least claimed to be 20k to Partner's claimed 10k.

You can throw another $30 bucks at it and mount tubular legs to make it a stand up. (Same legs as Camp Chef Weekender)

And it is not quite as expensive as Partner if you're comparing similar sized models. But still spendy, so you still get the pleasure of parting with plenty of greenbacks.

Having the hose come out the front is sort of weird - kind of in the way.

I like the flush knobs so it would fit in a box nicely, although the side latches protrude a bit.

Where's the carry handle?

Incidentally, I have a camp chef Ranger built in to a teardrop trailer, and it cranks pretty darn well. These things are all just a couple valves with a flame spreader.

Except one is made by a guy you can call and talk to in Pocatello Idaho if you have a problem, the other is probably made in Gina someplace

That doesn't mean you need to speak Ginese to get customer service. I used live chat (in English) to get an answer from CC about the compatible leg kits. Real time response. Small companies and big ones have different customer service challenges, and both can succeed or fail. I recall an ongoing thread about a very local, American small businessman, in your state I think, that seems to suffer from serious customer service issues. Of course, I've never heard a bad word about partner from any angle; only good words.

I have an Everest, it kicks ass. I can't quantify BTU's but it's much, much hotter than a 2 burner partner used on a trip last year. I had gone back and forth about getting a partner, but less heat for more money put the brakes on for me.

I like the case that comes in, I've actually thought of building something similar for my Camp Chef.
