If cruisers are having Thanksgiving or Christmas nearby, I'm the gal who volunteers to cook the bird!

Cheers, mate, and enjoy your upgraded cooking.

Strange to hear that , I have never seen a Broadwater stove so I am ignorant on there construction and performance all I can say is they certainly look like a well built unit.
I was thinking of updating our Shipmate which is original to our Bristol and going with a new Dickinson Mediterranean. Not for any other reason but esthetics's. I am very glad I kept our 36 year old three burner Shipmate , compared to every thing I have seen on the market nothing is built as well . I just installed Piezo electric starters on all the burners . The oven works great as well . There are no thermocouples on the burners so a good sniffer is in order as should be on any boat with propane . After what I have read here, I think I will keep it for a very long time.

Regards John.

Re: Propane Stove/Oven

For the Cheap low or no budget sailor, and that would be me, I installed a Atwood RV stove to replace the then 42 year old rv stove that had been in my boat. The atwood oven has all the safetys of a marine stove and good temperate control, I can bake a trap of brownies or bread or roast and it's just like a land side stove.

Stove top does not have the marine safety burners, but I never leave the stove top on unattended. So not a big deal for me. Knobs starts at high level and rotate to very low, which stays lit unless the wind is blowing in the hatch way. I sometimes have to put two of the three drop boards in when the tides and winds are opposite.

For me the biggest benefit was the price, off ebay for $280, including shipping. Retail is $500 ish which is still over half of a "Marine" stove Plus I added the gimbals from the old rv stove. Had it over two years and still is a dream to use. A rv dealer sells newish atwoods on ebay as used. They were installed in an RV and owner wanted an upgrade stove. For $250 ish it's pretty sweet.

Re: Propane Stove/Oven

I LOVED the Broadwater I bought for a previous boat. Pricey but worth it, IMO. Now I have a magnificent old Mariner Regal in my current boat/home - 3-burner with oven and broiler - from New Zealand (out of production) that is reliable, efficient and built like a tank (heavy gauge stainless, good seals and insulation). It's got some seemingly complicated technology with thermocouples on every burner, but is the Energizer Bunny of marine stoves. Any stove with similar tech requires holding the burner in the ignite setting until the thermocouple warms up to keep the gas flowing. It's a safety thing.

Re: Propane Stove/Oven

Just a little mishap.

My wife was mentioning that the electronic ignition on our LPG oven comes on as soon as the door was opened.
Was this always like this? Not sure, I think not. Ok, I will have a look when I get a minute.
A few weeks later I needed to to heat up Baguettes, wife on holidays.
Turned on the gas solenoid, heated water for the coffee.
Then opened the oven door to place the Baguette on the tray.
Arms, facial hair, hair burned, a mighty explosion!
Underwear dirty!

The previous night I heated up Pizza and instead of turning the oven off, I just turned the Gas solenoid off. Same thing, or?

I pulled the oven apart to figure out what was wrong.
A bit of fat on the shaft of the on / off knob prevented the knob from returning fully to the off position, keeping the gas open and the electronic ignition switch closed.
That`s why the oven was full of gas and ignited as soon as the door was fully open.
I am happy to be able to share this little story with you.

By the way, I keep well out of the galley from this day. Too dangerous for me!

Re: Propane Stove/Oven

Glad youre here to tell the tale Seman. My current stove (Force-10) uses a thermocouple to keep the gas valve open. It cannot remain open if the burner goes out, but Im sure these fail as well.

My practice is to close the solenoid switch, then turn off the knob. And then, once were done with the stove, close the valve on the tank. So we have four levels of protection (main valve, solenoid, burner knob, thermocouple) but it still makes me nervous .

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
