What are the important aspects of the Camp Chef Camping Outdoor Oven with 2 Burner Camping Stove?

Fuel: To power your camping outdoor oven, you’ll need disposable propane tanks. You can bring several tanks depending on how long you’ll stay in your campsite and how much you’re planning to use. To give you an idea on how many to bring, a disposable bottle will last about six hours when the oven is set on high. Since you aren’t always using the high temperature, the bottle will last much longer.

The oven won’t let you choose the temperature whenever you need to bake. Instead, there’s a range between high and low. You’ll be able to see the temperature inside through the thermometer that comes with the oven. Owners suggest keeping an eye on that thermometer, as the temperature tends to go up and down.

It’s also very hassle free to use because of the matchless igniter; it works just like your gas stove and oven at home.

Size: The height of this outdoor oven is a little bit low. If you’re a tall guy, you might find it hard to cook something in the burners because you have to lean down most of the time. The oven is much even lower; you have to squat every now and then. It’s not really a big deal and you can always find a table or stone to prop it up to give it more height.

Surprisingly, this outdoor oven is much bigger inside than it looks. You’ll be able to put in a lot of dishes inside the oven to cook more for your family or friends. Take note however that this oven will not be able to accommodate standard sized baking pans. Choose smaller sized tin foils.

The two burners on top also allow you to multi-task. The burners come with a lid for wind protection to avoid the flame from going out. While you’re baking something in the oven, you’ll be able to cook sauces and other dishes on the burner. Imagine having a fancy dinner under the starry night sky. The Camp Chef Camping Outdoor Oven makes camping even more fun and exciting.

Capacity: The oven comes with two racks so you can maximize every cook and bake by putting all the food you can fit inside the oven. Though the interior is very spacious, it is not suggested to use regular sized baking pans because it will take up all the space and it might be hard to put it inside and out because of the narrow entry. You also can’t fit two large pans on both the stoves at once.

Portability: Camp Chef Outdoor Oven and Burner feature a lid that folds up to reveal two burners with up to 7,500 BTUs of power each. With the oven, this outdoor cooking device may be considered quite heavy at 35 pounds. However, it is designed to be taken anywhere you please with the sturdy handles that allow you to carry it with comfort. You might need help in moving this and setting it up though.

A good outdoor refrigerator that can withstand being left to mingle with your other outdoor kitchen appliances is the: Bull Outdoor Products Stainless Steel Front Panel Refrigerator.

PROS: It’s the perfect shape and size for your outdoor kitchen. You can easily slide it underneath one of the counters for a seamless addition. By having it installed underneath, it won’t bother you while you’re working around your kitchen while making it easier for you to take out the stuff you need.

The stainless steel is a good material because it can withstand all the elements the outdoor environment throws at it, but of course, it still needs proper care and maintenance for it to last years without problems.

CONS: Some customers complained about the durability of this product. While they have properly installed it outdoors, shielding it from heat, rain, and snow, it still got a bit of rusting parts and the motor didn’t cool as well as before.

It is recommended to tuck this refrigerator indoors where it can sit fully covered in a dry place, especially if it’s not going to be used for a few weeks or months. This is so the life of the refrigerator will be extended and maintenance will be lessened.

 

What are the important aspects of the Bull Outdoor Products 11001 Stainless Steel Front Panel Refrigerator?

Material: The body of the Bull Outdoor Product Refrigerator is made of stainless steel so it could endure the changing weathers outdoors. It was really designed for that purpose so it is made much thicker as the weathers could be harsh. Inside it has three removable wire-coated shelves with storable stacks.

Although it’s considered to be made of thick products, customers have complained about its cooling capacity especially during the warm months when the heat temperature spikes.

Apparently, the doors and the sides are not well insulated that the motor has a hard time cooling during these hot summer months. Check if you are living in a really hot place and if you are, think twice before purchasing this product. Or you can remedy this by putting something to cover the refrigerator to have it somewhat insulated. It may help contain the coldness.

Capacity: This refrigerator can fit most of the food and meat you plan to cook in a day or two, but it depends really on how many your guests are and how much you’re planning to cook.

It may not be big enough if you’re planning to invite the whole neighborhood in, therefore, won’t help save you trips to your indoor refrigerator. It has provisions for cooling beverages such as cans and bottles of soda or beer so all you need for your backyard barbecue party is all in one place.

Power: As previously mentioned, some customers have encountered difficulty in keeping their refrigerator cold during the very hot sweltering months of summer. Although this is not always the case as some customers are very happy with their product outlasting years of hot summer.

It probably depends on the product you get; maybe the negative reviewers received subpar cooling capacity, or they haven’t really checked on their maintenance such as Freon replacements and whatnot.

To help your fridge combat the heat of summer, you can put insulation all over it so the coldness inside doesn’t evaporate outside. Some people felt satisfactory with the thickness of the stainless steel material while some considered it too thin. Opinions vary and it’s really up to the owner how he sees his appliance.

To help you decide, you may want to check the refrigerator first to see it for yourself. That way, you won’t experience regrets or difficulties in returning it in case you’re not happy with it.

Outdoor Compatibility: Take note to place it closer to appliances and kitchen necessities similar to it. Have something such as “stations” where you separate the hot stations from the cold stations. It’s typical to have the refrigerator next to the sink, coolers, wine racks, etc. while the burner, stove, and grill are close to each other. This is to alleviate the heat off your refrigerator to help it produce sufficient amount of coolness.

Materials-wise, this refrigerator is built for outdoor use so it can pretty much withstand the changing weathers. Although you might want to store it indoors during the long winter months when you don’t plan to use your outdoor kitchen for weeks to come. This will help prolong the life of your fridge.

The Camp Chef Sherpa Table, is one of the helpful tools you can bring when going camping because of its portability and versatility. But those aren’t the only aspects that you should look for, it is also important that it’s made up of sturdy and strong materials, as it will take up some beating after being taken from one place to another all the time.

PROS: It is very easy to put up and won’t require too much of your time. This is great if you are pressed for time and you need all your stuff in one place in the shortest possible amount of time. The Camp Chef Sherpa Table has a big compartment that houses four separate bags, which you can use to easily sort out your camping stuff. The material is made of durable cloth, although not waterproof. The tabletop is thick and sturdy so you can put plates, pots, and pans on top of it.

CONS: Owners have very little complaints about the product. One is the lack of versatility of the telescoping legs, which only have two levels. It would be great if the legs could go up higher to suit the needs of taller people. However, this isn’t really a huge con and shouldn’t be a deal breaker. Users also don’t like how the zippers seem like it’s made of low-quality materials. It’s quite tacky to open and close, but otherwise lasts.

 

What are the important aspects of the Camp Sherpa Table?

Materials: This is a rollout aluminum tabletop that attaches to the top of the frame. The entire cabinet is made from denier fabric that can withstand pressure and carry multiply heavy materials. You’re sure that this fabric won’t split or tear even with constant use and beating. This fabric is not waterproof however and it is recommended to be stored inside the tent or under roof when heavy rain comes.

The legs are made of telescoping aluminum that can be extended twice. It can be raised up to the perfect cooking and eating height. The top is made of aluminum and it can be stored easily in its own compartment when it’s time to go. It can also easily withstand hot camp stoves, etc. The four removable bags that come with the Sherpa table are padded while one is lined so it can be used as a cooler to keep your food warm or cold.

A customer complained about the fabric near the seams, which might tear easily because it is a stress point. Just be careful when pulling as to not damage it. The customer also encountered a hole at the top of the bag but sewn it using a heavy-duty thread.

Portability: Although this Camp Sherpa Table is quite heavy on its own at 13.4 pounds, it’s still quite portable as you can fold it and carry the parts one by one. The most important thing is that everything you need can be stacked in one place and carried in one go, although you will surely need the help of your peers here.

Once camping is done, you can clean everything up and pack it back up in this Sherpa table so you’ll have all your camping gear ready to go for next time.

With the bags out, these little dividers unzip so you can have two long shelves or four little ones or no dividers at all if you want.

What other things should you know about the Camp Chef Sherpa Table?

Putting it together is very easy; it would only take about 10-15 minutes. Once set up, it works as a cook stove top, then kitchen sink top for cleanup, then a good, sturdy table for whatever else you need.

Its versatility is very useful especially in a place where there are no picnic tables. Once all your stuff is inside, it’s also easier to move around especially when it starts to rain. Moving all your camping stuff at once in a quick manner is incredibly convenient.

It also comes with carry handles located on the sides that are well cushioned so it’s comfortable to move around. Although with all the contents you have put inside the Sherpa, it might be difficult to move around by yourself. You’ll probably need at least three people to carry it as the Sherpa table itself adds some weight.

Be careful about the tabletop though as it is made of slats of aluminum. When something spills on top of it, all the liquids will go down to your containment and might wet your stuff stored underneath. You can solve it by simply putting a vinyl-coated fabric directly underneath the aluminum table. The upside is that the surface is quite wide so you’ll be able to have enough space for prepping, cooking, and cleanup.

 

The Verdict

The Camp Chef Sherpa Table is definitely a good buy and is recommended if you love going on lots of camping and weekend getaways. It’s very convenient and it’s spacious enough to contain all your gear and camping essentials.

Finding the stuff that you need is also made easier because of the cabinet divider of the Sherpa table, which increases efficiency. Not only that, the aluminum table top is also a great addition as it doubles the purpose of your Sherpa, helping you bring less in your getaways.
