Suggestions for Microwave, Microwave/Convection

Greetings,

Your ideas are appreciated.

I would like to add a small MW or MW/Convection
to my 30' Pearson. Galley space is, of course, limited, and currently there is no "convenient" nook or shelf for installation.

For now, the MW will be limited to use at marinas using AC. No long-distance cruising yet. I do have a pure sine 1500 w inverter to be installed "soon."

Question 1: generally, is the convection oven worth the extra cost and size?
Depends on what food I plan on cooking. But generally speaking-
Question 2: is storing the MV and then bringing out for meals a good idea?
Even the smaller MW have a relatively large foot print, and they
all require adequate space to "breathe."

thanks again,

Bo

Convection , micro combo is a fantastic piece of equipment

I have no idea how you would power and mount it on s small craft

And yes...it generates waste heat that must be dealt with

Re: Suggestions for Microwave, Microwave/Convection

I installed a Samsung 1.7cf convection, 1790w / microwave 950w last year. I love it. Works fine with my Freedom 25 combi which is a modified sine wave inverter. I've baked bread and pastries, roasted duck and lamb, etc. I works very well.

Re: Suggestions for Microwave, Microwave/Convection

Indispensable because you now have an oven, broiler and microwave. Keep in mind that these units are heavy, so keep CG in mind when installing.
