Re: Multi Cooker?

NOt a lover of the taste from pressure cookers. But then I dont like stew type dishes.

I use gas and have a nice oven and burners. Also have a small bbq which can be fitted outside the boat on the rail. Once fired up and at the right temperature, the meat can be placed inside and the lid secured and left to slow cook for a couple of hours. Charcoal is light to carry as well.

I also carry 2 small portable butane units and 10 cannisters of gas. Handy for taking onshore if needing to cook food. I use one when berthed on the table for keeping the Shabu-Shabu hot

Re: Multi Cooker?

Google Thermo cooker or Thermomix. They are expensive do-everything cookers. Friends bought one in for their circumnavigation and from their blog really seem to be enjoying the good work "Thermo" is doing. I don't have any experience with it myself but it sounds interesting for long-range cruising.

Every restaurant and home in Spain has one.
I managed to pick a lightly used one up for 400EU on my last trip.

Addendum: If you want one Praire..... The purple store on the corner of the restaurant street has them in regularly..

A friend of mine made her own from a cool box with small polystyrene bead filled beanbags to fill the gaps. It worked fine for a year or so until she put a cast iron pan in it and melted the bottom!
Hot tip! So to speak . . .

Re: Multi Cooker?

Two items that I have that have been lifesavers: 1 a fitting to replace the electric solenoid. Manually turn the gas off after use.
2 a fitting to use a little 16 oz. canister to supply the propane to the boat when the big bottle runs out. It is really quick to change during mid cooking fuel exhaustion.
