It all works.

Our last boat had a gimballed, 1-burner kero stove and no oven. No problem.

Our current boat has.a non-gimballed, 3-burner, gas stove with oven. Once in the last 3 years, the kettle fell off and it now has a nice artistic dent. Basically, no problem.

It all works. Just adapt yourself to suit. Relax. Worry about the important things!

We have found that pot holders are key to ensuring stove top cooking success.

Re: How Important is it to Have a Stove With an Oven Gimballed?

One of the first things we did was convert the electric stove top to a propane 3 burner with oven. In 16+ years we have never lit/used the oven, which we store the pots/pans that we donít use either. The stove is dropped down about 3 inches below level of the counter and installed a bar/rail for those pot/pan grabber on thingies, which we also have never used.

Anyway if you can drop the stove blow the counter level and install a bar/rail with the pot grabber things you donít need a Gimbal stove oven.

BTW, My 3 burner stove oven is an RV type converted to gimbal with a latch on the door, fiddles and a gimbal lock. Its only 40 years old. Though I expect its gotten a lot more use in the last 6 years, then the previous 34 years. When it finally goes, I'll replace it with another RV 3 burner stove/oven converted to be swinging. RV stoves are about 1/3 the price of marine stoves.
Yep, RV stoves are great. Two of my asian made boats came with them. Never had an issue with them. Other than the wonderful rusty brown color!

but the thumb screw gets hot. Here's what I thought was a cool cooking idea, it's a thermal bag discussed in another thread.
Wonderbag: It looks like a beanbag. So how does it cook soups, stews and porridge to perfection? | Mail Online

That rusty brown color grows on you after awhile.

Re: How Important is it to Have a Stove With an Oven Gimballed?

We have a two burner stove that we gimballed ourselves in the space where the oven is supposed to be. The oven wasn't an option because it was too expensive for us, and we already had the two burner stove. We used the stove top and our magma grill for almost everything. The only thing we needed an oven for is baking bread, so we bought a small camping oven (Coleman 5010D700T Camp Oven) that works on top of the stove top, and it works great! I wouldn't use the camping oven on the stove top underway (not very stable), but we've used regular pots/pans on the stove top underway just fine.

Here is a small picture of the gimballed stove... Galley Makeover - seadoodle

Do a google custom search "pressure cooker bread".

Re: How Important is it to Have a Stove With an Oven Gimballed?

buy a multihull, and gimballing anything won't even be a consideration.

(sorry, had to say it.) ;-)

Yes, but you'll need it to work upside down as much as right side up

My Pizza this weekend would have been pretty chewy without an oven.
