TASCO stoves

If you have one, what's your opinion about it?

Re: TASCO stoves

755LP, but I'm interested in how their products hold up in general, too. Thanks.

Re: TASCO stoves

I am actually interested in that exact model and wanted to bump this thread up to see if anyone has an opinion? I've looked at the Force 10 and the others but I'm not happy with the build. The Tasco looks very well built and I like that it's fully insulated. Opinions?

Re: TASCO stoves

I have a 20 year old Tasco 555LP that's holding up very well. When you call the company for parts or service you can talk directly to a real person. They will even take their older stoves back to rebuild, which is an option I'd consider before replacement - though the stove is pretty easy to service so I doubt it will ever come to that.

Re: TASCO stoves

Just brought and installed the 750, brought it directly from Tasco, they gave me a good price and the shipping was very cheap compared to the marine stores. Been working great, had one small issue, called and they sent out the replacement part immediately.

On my last boat, back in the late 90's I also installed a Tasco stove, worked great for the 8 years and 20k miles I sailed that boat!

Re: TASCO stoves

My 25 year old tasco cooks better than my (then) new GE Natural Gas stove in my old home.

Yeah, but wish I could still get parts for them. Tasco has some burners, but if your oven is shot you are out of luck with the 500 series.

Are you sure about that? Their web site still shows the 550 and 555 as current models.

They may show them on their website but are not selling the older models - I just brought mine from them, did want the older models but no longer made or in stock.

I guess they haven't updated the website in a while.

Yes, I talked with them last week. Was hoping that they would rebuild my 555, but they said many of the oven parts are no longer made by their vendor. Oh well 25 years is a good run.....

Re: TASCO stoves

We installed our 3 burner model in 2009 from Defender as a replacement for a foreign build stove that no longer had parts available.

Zero problems since then, including trips to the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Nova Scotia.
