cooking on board

With all the new cooking devices around today I was wondering what you boaters are using on your boat? Tom

I replaced the spiral element electric stove top with and induction unit. I love it. It heats very, very quickly and doesn't bake spilled food on the glass because the pot gets hot, not the glass.


The only downside is that you have to use ferrous insert (or cast iron) pans and skillets.

I use a crock pot a lot. Make the meal the night before, refrigerate, take out when getting underway to warm up a bit, then cook as normal off inverter power.



Ready for after docking or dropping anchor.


An Instant pot nay be a good alternative as it can slow cook and other ways.

I thought you could use any steel, SS, or iron cookware on those.

Since we configured our boat for multi-day off shore fishing trips, we went overboard with cooking alternatives. Perhaps most unusual is the beni Hana grill (tepanaki cooking). There is a propane bbq, with rotisserie, vacuum packing machine for sous vide cooking, a full size oven (electric) that can fit a big turkey, and conventional Viking gas (propane) range. Plus some portable appliance including a hot dog machine (like they have at convenience stores and movie theatres, which keep some dogs rolling around all day), a rice cooker (goes hand in hand with the beni hana table), a conventional deep fryer, and an air fryer, as well as a semi-portable smoker. I don't think there is anything we can cook at home that we can't cook on the boat.

Aboard Seaweed I have two propane burners. I also have a single 900watt electric burner ($10 from Walmart)

Mostly though I use the microwave. I am in a "not cooking much" period. I go through these from time to time.

The boat over a few slips from me has a toaster oven that I use from time to time. I like that a lot and if I had room for one, I'd have it aboard my home too. Pizza!!!

I thought the insta pot was overhyped but now that we have one we use it constantly at home. We chartered last December and the boat had one on board. Downside is - like with a toaster or coffee maker - you may need the generator running if you have other loads on the inverter.

Most stainless steel cookware doesn't work.

We've been using the Ninja Foodie. It takes up a chunk of counter space, but we don't have an oven. It's been excellent at cooking briskets (better than we can do at home ). Steams, pressure cooks, crisps and air dries.
Highly recommend.

That is a very broad statement. In fact, all of my stainless steel cookware works with induction. A magnet test will reveal whether the cookware will will work. Or, look at the stampings on the bottom. I do believe that, with the more widespread use of induction cooktops, manufacturers are making their cookware induction capable.

I use 2 induction hot plates when it's too hot for the diesel stove. I mostly use cast iron, but have some ss cookware that works with induction. You can buy a metal disk that goes between the induction surface and a non magnetic ss pan. The disk gets hot and transfers the heat.

No gadgets allowed on our boat, not enough counter space or storage space. We actually eat much better on the boat than at home. I have a propane grill on the aft rail which cooks all our burgers, brats, chops and steaks. On the stove or microwave either some veggies or potatoes, often sweet corn boiled on the stove. Usually fruit from the cooler for breakfast and cheese, crackers, sausage etc. for lunch, usually while underway on the flybridge. Microwave popcorn at night for a snack. Simple, fast, easy cleanup.

Propane stove and oven, Magma grill on deck, or marina grill when we're in port (not allowed to grill on the boat while in the marina).

A friend had a CharKing, I think that's the name, home-style propane grill on his pontoon.
