230v/50hz Victron 3000 vs. Magnum 2700

I'm going to replace my boats 2000 watt inverter with a 3000 watt inverter and 1000Ahr lithium bank. I have two requirements
1) I need to cook with two inductive cook tops. I have not chosen them yet, but likely 1500 or 1800 watts. One on high and one on low or two on medium. I don't expect to run both on high.

2) Nuvair MCH3 dive compressor. It is a 110v / 15 amp, but was told it could be a 230/50hz also. I "assume" it would be about 1/2 the amps 2x the voltage, so about 8 - 9 amps. Ya, it's slow, but might work. It has a 1.47hp/1.1kW motor.

The issue I'm having is the Victron is 3000 VA and Magnum is 2700 Watt. The specs I put below are from the Magnum spec sheet and from an email from Victron. Seems the long term output over 30 minutes is better for Magnum and starting a compressor might be the victron for the win. Am I interpreting that correctly? I don't have the missing data for the two inverters so making the exact comparison difficult.

Re: 230v/50hz Victron 3000 vs. Magnum 2700

Nuwave has a model that can vary the power 900, 1500, 2000Watts. Only had mine a week in Marina. Works great dial in temperature, can quickly dial in 190Deg for 2 minutes, for making morning coffee (Temp sensor is a bit on high side, simmering is 55DegC. Gas consumption dropped right off. I know some Youtube sailors Followtheboat, who get by on Victron 12V 3Kva. They have 2 burner induction, and cook bread in bread maker, think they only have 200Ahr Calb but not sure if they had any upgrades.
Reckon if you still have gas, you only need one.

My issue is thinking of upgrading to 24V, so haven't pulled trigger on Victron yet.

Re: 230v/50hz Victron 3000 vs. Magnum 2700

Having had on one boat a magnum. and after its failure I replaced that one with a Victron (3000)
on my other boat we also have a victron 3000 X2 ( so 6000)
they start compressors, keep on ticking and 5 year warranty.
they are built for real (ab)use.
Plus they are fully configurable
have the power depending on the input , the batteries can add another 3000 to that
