Adequate stove is better than competition

After using three or four different table top stoves that were terribly weak we got a Camp Chef and I kinda like this one best. Kinda.
I have to say, that in a field of really poor stoves, this one shines as adequate and hot. It's got some features and they do work. But it's raving reviews reflect the poor state of this industry, I think. Others have discussed the features, but I want to discuss all the Camp Chef might want to improve.

1) Ranger stove has a side outlet for gas- on a table top stove, rear outlet makes more sense. for managing hose installation. I with they would do this.
2) Ignition. The way the valve works, the ignition sparks first, then the gas starts into the pipe. It's backwards. So we often spend more time trying to get it to light than other stoves with sparks or than using a lighter. The trick is to open the valve, knowing that it won't light, leave it open for a second, then close it so that you can open it again and spark will have gas to light. Repeat when it doesn't work the first time. This is hardly impressive functionality, but it's workable.
3) Valve usage. Everytime you go to turn it off you have to fumble through various stops and detents to turn it off. Always awkward, I've had it for two months now, and hope I;ll eventually get the hang of it.
4) Three very hot burners. No medium burners. It's tricky using this stove for my smaller pots and saucepans. There are settings that work if you fidget, but generally it's turn it to low and water never boils or else medium flame is now tumbling out the sides and burning handle, hands wasting energy that misses the pot. Please put a medium btu burner in the mix, Camp Chef.
So, anybody who's looking for a business niche, I suggest you consider making countertop stoves. There is plenty of room for brilliant design in this field. Camp Chef is leading a pack of really poor designs with their adequate one.
