Time to upgrade your old green two-burner? Check out this souped-up model, which includes gourmet extras like a built-in utensil case (includes spoon, spatula, and cutting board), an LED hood light, and a battery-operated timer. After a sandy, windy six-day camping trip in southern Utah, our testers praised the precise controls of the two stainless steel, 12,000 BTU burners: “I could bring the milk to a gentle bubble for the kids’ hot chocolate on one side while flash frying onions and garlic on the other,” says one. Hinged windscreens protect the sides of the burner from gusts, or fold down to double as extra counter space. Gripe: Though the whole unit is very durable, the magnets designed to hold up the windscreens failed when winds topped 15 mph. Bottom line: If you want a camp kitchen nearly as good as the one at home and don’t mind paying up, the FireHole will serve you well on car-camping trips for years to come
