We purchased an induction cooktop hot plate for our galley
this past summer.... what a great product!
In the Med, obtaining fuel
for our propane
stove is always a problem, usually unavailable north of Spain
, so we're stuck using very expensive butane from those ridiculous little camping bottles. The problem was solved
when we bought an induction cooktop for around $100. It heats up food
(not the plate itself) extremely quick almost like a microwave, and uses very little electrical
power. We need to run the generator
everyday anyway to charge the batteries, so now we just do so when we also use the induction cooktop and the quick boiler kettle prior to mealtime in order to increase the load on the generator
, so that it's happy too.
cooked quickly with excellent heat control, and we now use nearly zero propane
I just thought I'd pass along this idea, which was passed on to me by some liveaboard
