One of the most important requirements of a comfortable camping trip is a reliable camp stove. There are several different types of camping stove available. A really versatile one is the Camp Chef stove-oven combo.
Camp Chef Propane Stove & Oven
What can you do with this combo?
It has the same cooking capabilities as a home oven and range. It’s designed for portability and versatility. It can provide the heat to cook anything from your favorite breakfast omelet to baked cookies and bread. There’s no need to pre-heat the oven; all you need to do is light the oven, put in your food and monitor the temperature. Check it out on Amazon.com.
Note: This appliance is recommended for outdoor use only.
Fuel Requirements and Cooking Capacity
The combo is fueled by a disposable 1-pound propane bottle. However, it can be adapted for a bulk tank, using a hose adapter. The cooker can operate at 350°F for up to 7 hours on one 1-pound can of propane.
For your stove-top cooking, the range has 2 self-igniting brass burners. You can control the heat by using the fully-adjustable dials.
The oven also works with matchless ignition and can reach a temperature of 400°F. You can easily fit a 9 x 13-inch pan into it.
It has a built-in temperature gauge and 2 removable racks. Good insulation ensures that you can bake more while using less fuel.
To conform to camping regulations, the oven cannot have automatic temperature control. However, if the temperature exceeds the required level, simply open a crack to release some of the heat.

There is not much that I would like to see changed in this Camp Chef combo. It’s unfortunate that the temperature cannot be automatically controlled. However, according to the manufacturer, they have had to choose the manual control option because of “camping regulations”. The stainless steel construction certainly gives one peace of mind regarding the appliance’s durability.
