Re: Electric stoves

I just don't know how you can say LP gas is unsafe on a boat ?? Where did you see that printed?or is that just hersay ??Ive used LP on board with the proper equipment for the system for over 30 years! never a problem of any kind and know of lots and lots of boats both made in the US and Europe and Canada that come equiped with LP gas!! it's the cheapest, safest and sure the most silent cooking system !! Batts and solar, wind or alternators on the engine will handle all your electrical needs for lighting, frige and even a freazer! but I just can't see any non genny system handleing a electric stove gimbeled or not LOL As far as coffee we have used a inverter and and a Melitta Carafe coffee maker for yrs never a problem with our 2500 watt unit. if it was I, propane is what I would use and save myself a lot of money and problems!

Re: Electric stoves

Let me second Bob and Connie.

A properly installed LPG system is perfectly safe when used appropriately. I have never had a problem in 30 years and about 50 different models of boats. In fact, the newer models with thermocouples are super-safe.

Re: Electric stoves

None of the electric stoves at defender are gimballed; all are built-in.

Marine Stoves, Cooktops, Ovens and Ranges Stoves

Re: Electric stoves

I built a gimbled microwave oven with a two burner propane stove over it and a 110v hot plate that fits in the pot holders( for dockside use). IF I've done the math right I'll have enough in the battery bank and solar panels to use the microwave once a day for about 4 min. and not really drain the system.

While pondering electric vs LPG I bought a 1500 watt hotplate today. While attempting to cook rice I blew a fuse! S'board side worked fine, however. Must've been the fridge load on port... I'm still mastering the intricacies of life on my floating home! Keeps ya humble & flexible, & is not for the faint of heart! Still, I don't miss the condo!!! It's a great life!

I am sure the owner of this once-was-a-Irwin would disagree with you (if he has regained the ability to speak).



Please note that I have a propane system, and like it. It does come with some inherent dangers however that one has to live with.

Re: Electric stoves

For $40~$60 you could buy a single unit induction portable hot plate and decide if induction is for you. 2000 watt inverters have no problems with size load.

This morning my SO suggested plugging the hotplate into diff outlet. (One in galley is GFCI). I boiled H2o w/o blowing a breaker! So now I don't have to cook on the Nav station! Thinking now about just sticking w CNG & taking our chances of finding it abroad! We don't cast off for 3 more yrs anyway! No bad says!

Re: Electric stoves

Re: Electric Stoves

There is a reason 99% of boats use propane. Play the odds.
