Camp Chef Teton is an excellent choice if space is a concern. If you are trying to fit a stove in your pack or in your vehicle the Teton is one of the more compact two burner camp stoves on the market today.
The Teton measures 21.5 x 12.5 x 4 inches while the Everest is slightly larger and measures 23.5 x 13.5 x 4 inches.
This space can be valuable if you are packing for a multi-day trip, especially if you need to carry it on your back. In that scenario the other big consideration will be weight.
Camp Chef Teton really shines in this category coming in at a featherweight 9.6 pounds. The Everest stove weighs 12 pounds. The weight difference between the two stoves is significant if you are planning on covering any significant distance or changes in elevation.
If you are keen on portability, the Camp Chef Teton will be your perfect choice while those who are looking for excellent cooking capability will settle on the Everest stove. As we point out in the next section of this article the trade off in weight comes at a price when it comes to BTU output.
Camp Chef Teton stove is powered by two 10,000 BTU burners while the Everest stove can crank out 20,000 BTUs from each of its burners.
This is where the big trade off really comes in. Most of the other features between these two stoves have been pretty close so far. Having half the BTUs can add a lot of time if you need to boil water.
The Everest stove can withstand strong winds when cooking with its flame not becoming extinguished compared to the Camp Chef stove due to the high pressure in the emission of cooking gas.
