Re: Best onboard oven for baking

We have a S/steel Spinflo Voyager, 1 large flame, 1 small, grill, regulated oven. I think it does a great job and I would recommend it to anyone. Someone mentioned that they thought the thermo couple caused fluctuating temperatures, in fact it only operates the flame failure device. Follow Dockheads advice and check the pressure at the burner. The electric route sounds good when this boat is sold I'll consider it for the next one.

Re: Best onboard oven for baking

Sorry I don't really know the amp useage for our bread maker! I just know we have 8 golf cart batts in two banks! and a 3000 watt inverter. And there never seems to be a problem useing the bread maker! Connie bakes with it a lot and often takes bread to folks that show up in the remote anchorages we like to stay at !! and we always have enough power for most anything we wish ! Yes we do have a genny and we have air condtioning, so if it's running our batts stay up and the bread maker runs off the genny! Us old folks love our comfort and our good chow !! LOL

Re: Best onboard oven for baking

What about a turbo oven like this one.

Choice suggests it's great for chicken, not so good for cakes.

At 1300-1400W (see faqs) they may run off an inverter or generator.

Anyone tried one?

Re: Best onboard oven for baking

So a question. When you changed from CNG to propane, did you turn the little screw on the oven temperature control, Behind the knob, from N to P.

Just wondering.

Also heres a link to some repair issues

Yep did that thanks chic. I guess running the bread machine off the inverter is maybe an option. Just seems like it would take a lot of power. How long do they run? Gonna try the stones but we are headed for the tropics so the thought of running the bread machine in the cockpit instead of heating up the cabin does sound appealing. Would need to figure out where to stow the thing though.

Re: Best onboard oven for baking

If you have a cast iron dutch oven that fits in your oven -- you can bake the bread in that .. you will also get a better crust that way. Similar principle as the pizza stone or tiles .. buffers the temp changes but also keeps the moisture in because of the lid which helps with making better crust. We even use this at home in the big oven.
