Re: Boaties Fry Pan

dont want to labour a point or cast nosturtiums, but cast iron anything unless well painted and attached to the engine, is a study in rust on a boat - but its a good filter to see whos actually spending a bit of time aboard and whos watching from the lazyboy

My bad

That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

We recently added green ceramic fry pan and am very happy so far.
The cast iron hasn't rusted in years on the boat.. but I do oil it regularly.

Re: Boaties Fry Pan

I have one of those Orgreenic pans from Walmart. I cant get anything to stick to it. I even burned cheese in it and it just slides out. The stainless steel rivets that hold the handle on is not no stick thou.
FYI if you have pet birds on board Teflon is a big no no.

Re: Boaties Fry Pan

There is occasionally a small square frypan with teflon non-stick for sale here in Oz supermarkets that also has raised 'griddle' bumps lengthwise across it, so it's good for 'grilling' steaks or dry roasting as the oil and juices drain away somewhat, which they don't in a flat-floored frypan of any stripe.
A few guys I know have the square pan because it fits better on a smaller stove, especially those with fiddles around them, so you can use the other burner(s) at the same time (without having to remove the fiddles first).

The flat-floored square pan is good for egg and bacon brekkies.....

Re: Boaties Fry Pan

We love our square electric fry pan.
- Heats up quickly, so it doesn't heat the cabin up as much (or we often cook on the back deck when really hot).
- No moisture in the cabin from burnt propane.
- It's amazing what you can cook in it. We even do some baking.

Love the cast iron but it's a hassle to deal with on the boat.

I've hated every stainless pan I've ever come across. It's like extra stick unless you have an inch of oil on the bottom.
