Propane Cooktops....any safe ones?

Wow, I have been searching for a two burner propane cooktop with auto-off safety and electronic ignition (12v preferred, but 110v okay), yet, every time I read reviews they are 15% - 25% negative with a lot of safety issues.

If you are using a propane stove/oven cooktop combo, or just a cooktop, which brand and what have your experiences been?

Thanks!

Steve

All the RVs we had growing up all had 4 burner OKeefe & Merrit range ovens. They never had safety devices except for the smell of the propane. The cooktop was always functional and the oven slightly less so, but mom could knock out a cobbler in it. For my build I ordered a basic 2 burner Suburban. It’s really cheep. I’m going with it.

We're using an apartment-sized (20") gas range we bought at Menards. It's a fully functional 4 burner cooktop and oven with broiler. It works on both propane and natural gas. Works like a charm for the past year.

Typical rv stoves do not have any safety features, simply be there when using the stove and make sure it is shut off when done. Kind of surprised they do not have a gas shut off if the flame goes out. Perhaps someone knows of one that does have that feature?

Camp Chef makes a neat, compact space saving 2 burner cooktop stove with an oven. Says not to run indoors, but been using it in mine with no ill effects.

All the Magic Chef stoves had knobs that needed to be pushed in to turn the gas on. I kind of think all stoves should be this way
