  • Not possible for the grill and griddle to combine with the stove for storing.
  • No storage space for the second grill top since the bag doesn’t have an extra pocket, and both won’t fit inside one pocket.
  • The grill and the griddle have a tendency to get warped after use since they are thin.
  • Slightly difficult to have the burner and grill area working simultaneously.
  • Grease has reportedly collected inside the body of the stove.
  • The tote bag is not useful and not durable.
  • The knobs can sometimes micro-adjust and not stay at the heat you want them to.
  • The grease reservoir is shallow, causing the grease to overflow or require constant emptying.

Expert Reviews

  • Reports of the igniter stopping after prolonged use.
  • The carry bag is comprised of cheap material.
  • The handle can cause indentations in the fingers due to the rough material.
  • The grill portion takes up a significant portion of the cook-top.
  • Hard to keep the flame alight in very windy conditions.


The Camp Chef Rainier Camper Griddle/Grill/Stove Combo is a mid-range option for campers who want a hybrid combination piece that will evenly cook their food. The flimsy carrying bag and some durability questions should be considered, but if the price is right, this could be a fine choice.
