Stove Burners

We're looking at buying an Escape that has a 2-burner stove. Does anyone know if it is an easy or is it a complicated project to upgrade to a 3-burner stove? If still under 2-year Warranty would we want to have it done at factory in Chilliwack?

We have a three-burner stove and in seven years, we have never used all three burners. I'm not even sure we've used two at the same time. Mostly we use a single burner to heat water for coffee.
We mainly cook outside on a BBQ / grill and a couple butane one-burner stoves ( generally use only one though ).
When weather is inclement, we will cook inside, but it will be something simple, like heating up wieners and beans.

It would involve some cabinet cutting and you would lose a little storage . Depends on your skills but it can be done . If fact did it years ago to a camper . We have the stove and love it and it was one of the first items to go on our build sheet . The stove uses propane so it can always be used when you have no hookups . Some don't care but some of us really like our little oven . Pat

Three Burners

We have a 19 with the three burner stove. While we have at times used two burners, I'm not sure we've ever used three. Like others, I prefer to cook outside, especially food that spatters or has strong odors. So, if I were ordering new, I would lobby for two burners, turned the long way to increase counter space. Three is fine but I'd go with two the way we camp. Our outside stove is a two burner Camp Chef Everest propane. It has fairly high output burners, works well in high elevations. Keep it in the side box under the dinette bench for travel.

That's some good looking chow. I'd be happy to call you Dad to get a breakfast like that but I am probably older than you. So that would be weird

I had and often used all 3 burners on my last trailer's stove. I am more a traveller than a camper and don't care to bother setting up an outside stove, grill or BBQ and packing them away again. All meals have been and will be cooked inside.

I have a 2 burner 17B on order. I ordered 2 burners turned sideways to save counter space. It also has a microwave which will be my 3rd burner.

Ventilation has been and should be more than adequate.

Like Bill, we utilize our stove more often than our Weber Q (thanks to our CanCooker ... ). Plus, we also have a small toaster oven we use when hooked to electricity. With all that, we rarely utilize all three burners. Two would have been fine for us.

I didn't know what a CanCooker was until I googled it from your post. Interesting! I use a pressure cooker to make curries, stews, pot roasts, whole chickens etc. I like the leftovers for lunches instead of processed foods.

They're great! I purchased ours after reading cpaharley2008 (Jim's) post. Love the simplicity of it. (Being a pressure cooker chef, you certainly understand what I mean.) And it's especially nice on those cold, wet days when standing outside over a barbecue isn't fun.
