I am a firm believer in the old adage that you have to have “the right tools for the job,” whatever the job may be. Camping cooking can be like home cooking assuming you have the right tools. If you don’t have the right tools, a 10 minute task can take you two or three times as long and you may still end up with disappointing results. I tried a couple of other camping stoves, but the Eureka Ignite Plus 2-Burner Camp Stove is the one that has performed the best. So, below is my real life Eureka Ignite Plus 2-Burner Camp Stove Review.
As I mentioned previously, the focus of this blog is to help first-time RV buyers. One way I do this is by writing reviews about products that I actually use and like, I generally don’t spend any time on products I’ve had a bad experience with. Sometimes I have to buy several brands of a particular product until I find one I like, which is time consuming and expensive, so hopefully I help save you valuable time and money by sharing with you products that work well for me and my family.

My family has a travel trailer and we tried to use the low pressure propane gas connection at the end of the trailer. But, we were not told when we purchased the trailer that the trailer propane system is not compatible with typical camping stoves. Camping stoves that use one pound propane tanks are high pressure systems and the trailer’s propane system is a low pressure system. I tried purchasing conversion kits, but they did not work. Finally, I discussed issue with the RV service center where I purchased my trailer, they had no idea how to fix and recommended that I buy a low pressure stove. I tried finding low pressure stoves, but the stoves I found were a grilling configuration, too small and expensive.
Trial & Error
So, I realized that I would have to buy a regular high pressure camping stove and lug around the one pound propane bottles. I purchased a popular brand name stove that had a stand integrated into the stove. It was relatively big, heavy, had poorly performing burners in terms of temperature and staying lit in windy situations. It took forever to heat up a pan and the low level of heat produced made cooking difficult. To add insult to injury, when we stored it in the bedroom of our trailer, it rolled into an interior wall and the handle put a hole in our brand new trailer wall.
I started searching the internet and Youtube for camping stove reviews. We have a relatively large family (2 adults, 3 kids) and we eat a lot, so we needed a camping stove that could fit two 12 inch pans at the same time. We wanted a stove that had a wide range of flame control and a stove that had wind guards because we like camping in windy coastal areas. Prices ranged from $50 to $200 or more. Reviews ranged widely too. All of the stoves I found were not large enough to accommodate two 12 inch pans at the same time.
Eureka Ignite Plus 2-Burner Camp Stove
Through my search, I came across the Eureka Ignite Plus 2-Burner Camp Stove. It appeared to meet my needs, so I purchased and tried it out. See features and specifications below.

I would honestly have to say since I purchased the Eureka Ignite Plus 2-Burner Camp Stove in 2019, it has been a great reliable stove. I would recommend to anyone looking for a robust camping stove. We typically use it 2 or 3 times a day to cook for our family of five when camping. Sometimes we use the campfire grill for grilling meats and veggies, see picture and link below for the Stromberg Carlson Stake and Grille.
We usually don’t use the stove in the kitchen of our trailer because we like cooking outdoors, so we don’t stink up the trailer with cooking smells (the range hood is weak), and clean up is easier using a camping stove outside.
I typically cook breakfast for the family, eggs, potatoes, chorizo, bacon, sausage and tortillas. My wife usually makes hot dogs or grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. And, she typically makes some kind of pasta, chicken/steak, and steamed veggies for dinner. If we catch crabs when we camp at the beach, she’ll boil the crabs.
The stove heats up our pans quickly and has a wide range of flame control, see short video below which demonstrates flame control. And, I’m able to fit two 12 inch pans on the stove. And, the wind guards protect the burners from getting blown out by the coastal winds when we’re camping near the beach.
The stove has four adjustable feet under the stove, so when our outdoor table is not level because of the terrain, I can still make the stove level…a very nice feature when camping.
I hope you found my Eureka Ignite Plus 2-Burner Camp Stove Review helpful. Happy camping!

If you enjoy cooking over the campfire like my family does, then you’ll want to check out the Stromberg Carlson GR-1522 Stake and Grille. We use it often. It’s easy to set up and easy to store. It has a wide range of adjustment to suit your cooking timeframe and preferences. You’ll want to buy a cover for the handle as it gets hot. And, it is easy to clean with a grill brush as compared to washing pots, pans and your RV or camping stove. The only issue we’ve run into is that one campsite had concrete around the campfire, so we were not able to put the metal stake into the ground, but we improvised an laid the grill over the fire ring.
