Camp Chef Summit vs Everest

Having a warm meal while you are out in the wilderness is a great way to bring some of the comforts of home with you. It can be nice to have a break from protein bars and granola once in a while.

This article compares Camp Chef Summit Stove and the Camp Chef Everest Stove. These two stoves are basically the same and have more similarities than differences.

We start out with the short list of ways these stoves are different from each other. The second section of this article describes the features you can find on both of these stoves.

Camp Chef Summit vs Everest

Ignition

The Summit has a turn style ignition, similar to turning a key in a lock while the Everest has a simple push button to provide a spark.

Leveling feet

The Summit has leveling feet that  got mixed reviews. The chief complaint was that the threads where the feet screwed in and out would strip easily and not work.

Besides the few complaints about the threads stripping in the leveling feet, we do see two significant inconveniences in using them.

First, you need to tip the stove up to adjust the feet by turning them in or out like a screw. Second, the total range for adjustment is less than half an inch.

The Everest does not have a leveling mechanism and requires a little DIY to provide a level cooking surface. 

For both of these stoves your best bet is going to be starting out with a level surface to begin with. 

Color

This is the final difference between these two. The Everest comes in an orange color while the Summit has an almost fire truck red paint job.

Mountain Series – Both of these camping stoves are part of the Camp Chef Mountain Series lineup.

With those minor differences out of the way, we move on to their similarities.

Here is a quick rundown of the features the Summit and the Everest share:

  • Dual burners with independent ignition and temperature controls
  • Each burner produces 20,000 BTUs while on high
