    Hi. I have seen a Cadac Safari chef and a Safari chef Deluxe. Can anyone please tell me if there is a difference ?

    Thanks.

    AFAIK the standard Safari chef is just has the reversible grill plate, the lid/wok and the base/burner assembly, the deluxe one comes with some other cooking 'plates' ... I haven't had one for while so can't be specific.

    When I bought mine the Deluxe had a pizza stone included but not with the standard safari chef.

    This is in fact the correct answer ! It doesn't help that most Ebay sellers list the lower spec one without the Pizza stone as "deluxe".
    I went for the standard non deluxe type as the pizza stone would never get used by us .

    Thanks all !

    @Khizzie You could try looking on the likes of ebay for one. Several used one there just now .

    If buying new add the price of the hose and regulator on.

    We bought a Cadac a couple of years ago. Found it disappointing after all the hype we'd read on here. If you're a family may be better, but we didn't need it. We've got single use disposables in the van, clean, light and plenty for two of us. The Cadac is at home in the shed!

    Send the link to the £72 one to Go Outdoors ... Ii did that a couple of weeks ago, and paid £65 in store with my email from them about their price beat (10% off the online price you find).
    So far, I think the Safari Chef 2 is an improvement over the Safari Chef.
