In the meantime, just for fun....

Current ETI offerings:
Atwood DV20 (2 burner): 7200 BTU large, 5200 BTU small burner
Atwood DV30 (3 burner): same as above, add one @ 5200 BTU
Atwood Oven/Stove combo: 9,000 BTU large, two 6500 BTU

Others:
SMEV PI8022US 2 burner: 5900 BTU large, 3700 BTU small
SMEV PI8822LUS 2 burner: 7200 BTU large, 3700 BTU small
Older Suburban (2 burner): 6500 BTU each
Older Suburban (3 burner): 6500 BTU large, two @ 5200 BTU
Dometic 3BR-1040132 RV: 3 burners @ 3700 BTU
Dickinson (2 burner): 11000 BTU large, 7000 BTU small

Nothing will boil water like the Dickinson!
Good summary, Dave. One other thing the Dickinson has over the others I have used was the simmering capability is fantastic. I have mentioned to Reace he should look into them as an upgrade. I know Dickinson would be more than happy to oblige.

I wasn't suggesting anybody actually do this. I was commenting in general.

With my Dickinson Marine cooktop for example, the BTU output is much higher than the stock one was, but part of that is achieved by concentric rings of output in the burners. The design also means more even heat across the pan with no hot spots. I haven't noticed any increase in propane use, but I have definitely noticed it takes less time to cook. Lastly, there are certain cooking techniques that require higher heat to do properly. With the Dickinson, that's not an issue.
Great summary. Most of us know there is much more to higher output with an even flame than larger burner holes. I acknowledge that not everyone wants or needs a $500 stove in their RV, but if they want one of the best then there is no doubt Dickinson should be on their list.

Or more than twice that for a Dickinson range, but for us.... priceless.

For what it's worth this is 700 BTU less than the current Suburban 2 burner stove and 1400 BTU less than the large burner on the 2 or 3 burner Atwood currently used by ETI.

I bought it direct from Dickinson. This is the two burner Caribbean model. They have a 3 burner, but it would be too tight of a fit. Installation was not too difficult, and it works great. Electronic ignition for both stove top burners, the oven, and the broiler.

Though Escape has installed the Dickinson stovetop, I kinda doubt they would install the range, though you never know until you ask.

I suspected it was quite low. You can cook most everything on it fine, just getting things to a boil will take a lot longer. That said, if you have a good output camp stove outside, that is the best place for lots of boiling anyway.

Yep, that's it. Thanks for linking to it Adrian, I kinda shoulda done that. Not saying what I paid, but it was substantially less than list.

Same with us last year for our spitfire barbq, paid less than list price. Cheaper anyway to pick up at Dickinson.

In your picture could you explain what you used for the back splash and counter edge. Looks fantastic.
Thanks

The backsplash was stainless steel tile, and the counter edge a stainless steel edge band from Richelieu.

This is the link to my cabinetry thread.

And, I paid less than list for my Spitfire, and less than Dickinson would sell for by buying from Steveston Marine on sale. When I asked Dickinson if they would match the price, they said no and that I should buy it from Steveston Marine.

Good for you Glenn. I didn't know you could get it at Steveston, mind you being local you'd be in the know. I just followed others on the forum going direct to Dickinson.

Just when I had thought I had read all the interesting threads...another one pops up. We have a Richelieu warehouse here.

I've seen that the atwood 3-burner stove/oven combo has more BTU's in the center/front burner, but darn if they don't look the same to me...

p.s. someone talked about increasing the size of the holes in the burner, you'd also need to increase the size of the gas orifice AND the air intakes to match so you get the right amount of gas+air for the higher volume burner.

He wasn’t serious that someone do that. See post #42.

Great looking stove, but I'm kind of bummed about the lower BTUs. Is this worth upgrading to the custom order 3 burner or the over for?

We'd planned on getting a Camp Oven for cooking and baking outside, but I wonder if we should reconsider.
