We removed all our propane and are replacing with an induction hob and a countertop oven
(not a microwave), so itís option 2.5 I guess. We are installing a 700aH 12V LFP house battery
and have 1000W solar
(soon to be increased to 2600W). Based on our prior experience with 660aH of AGM batteries
we should have plenty of energy. We do have a small AC generator
for cloudy days and long winter nights.
From various reviews
it seems an induction hob is a no-brainer as a first step to an electric
kitchen - the efficiency of the induction method far out weighs propane. Iím not sure that a split system is worthwhile, but I have seen people keep their propane hob and oven
and use a portable single
induction hob - this definitely has the lowest cost of entry and is a way to test without full commitment.
The propane oven is harder to replace, especially if you bake or roast. We will see how well the countertop oven (a Breville Smart Oven Pro that will store and operate in the oven cavity) performs and the energy it consumes.
Microwaves are particularly good at quick heating
- likely less common when long-term cruising and lessened time pressures - so we decided it wasnít worth the extra expense for an all-in-one unit. YMMV
