Question Electric built in oven for trawler

We are updating the galley on our 40' trawler and are having trouble finding an electric oven. Anyone out there that has updated from LP to electric and has a recommendation for an electric oven? Greatly appreciated.

Interesting post. While I am not going to have any help for your particular inquiry nor do I wish to threaten the thread, just yesterday visiting a friends 37 foot boat with new additions being placed, one of which is a "Magnetic stove Top'

Induction Cooktops | Magnetic Electric Induction Stovetops

This friend removed his propane stove/oven replaced the stove top with this unit and placed his micro-wave below in the former location of the propane stove's oven.

The cook top will consume 6 amp which is unbelievable in terms of what can be of benefit. With normal amps around 10 amps running, the use of the stove underway is nil in terms of amp draw. On the hook, with a inverter and a fair bank of house battery one would not be concerned of cooking with the gen set off.

He acturally gained an additional drawer as a result of the installation.

Good luck on finding a stand alone oven,

Al-Ketchikan

We are installing an induction 2 burner stove top for the exact reasons you mention. I love to cook and we live on our boat 3 - 6 months a year so would prefer a "real" oven versus a microwave. About the only thing I microwave is popcorn. Having a dickens of a time finding a built in oven that is electric.

I've been looking at some of the higher end standalone convection ovens, countertop or built-in.
This is just a sample, there are many other types/styles: https://countertopconvectionovenjudge.com/

Some high end microwaves have a convection selection .

A stove top requiring 6A of 120V can cost 65A of 12V DC to create.

Using a 2 burner stove could require double or 130A of 12V DC.

Batts live longest if long discharge loads are under about 10% of their rating.

So 1300 AH of batt bank might be required to function well.

This might equate to 1300 LBS of batterys.

Most people run the electric stove/oven with a generator when away from the marina.

When we are on battery we generally grill, we tend to run the gen about an hour morning and evening when anchored and i usually cook etc. when the generator is running. I know electric appliances are a draw and are a detriment to many, I am a bit phobic about LP on a boat. The trade off is worth it to me even though it is less convenient.

We were not considering a countertop model - preferring to have a built in oven instead. I would guess that the different venting requirements would preclude placing a countertop model in a cabinet. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Ours is a countertop combination microwave/convection oven... built into cabinetry above the cooktop (resting on a big shelf that connects cabinets on either side).

Happens there's boatloads of space behind it, so venting hasn't been an issue. There's no dedicated vent line attachment, just lots of free space back there.

true but the OP said,

Our new RV came with a built in to a locker microwave -convection oven.

High Pointe EC028KD

They have other sizes.

FF- I was doubtful of the statistic when the owner proffered it. Not being a "Wiz" on electrical demand in such a conversion. Said as I relate to what my toaster and coffee pot calls for when I plug these in under power through the 1800 Watt inverter. The amp gage bangs over to over 30 plus amp draw.
I personally do not use these appliances when on the hook and no gen set engaged. Actually, even when running, i watch the amp gage when the high demand is showing.
This watchful eye can be charged to wondering if the high demand is hard on the alternator (95 amp Delco Remy) when initially engaged in random uses.

Appreciate your often given information on series of subjects. Thanks

Thanks for all your info and advice - greatly appreciated!! Have history with LP - bad experience, so going all electric (even though there are many cons) is the route we want to go. I am looking into Convection/microwave alternative as suggested by so many here. THANKS to all who offered advice/help.

Ours is Viking, and from what I understand it is not, and is not "required" to be, marine. We also have a Viking gas (propane, although it can be easily re-jetted to CNG) cook top.

Some of the counter top models of convection microwave and also some of the ones for built in get very hot to the touch. An issue that is often over looked and not expected.

I read a convection microwave oven on convection needs to cool down before using the microwave function?
What I read was person prefered keeping these functions in separate appliances. Say your cooking with convection heat but then need to microwave something.

The induction tops are a great idea.

Yes, we have separate convection ovens and microwave on work boat and I plan on doing same on personal boat.

I installed this microwave/convection oven on my boat.

The wife likes how the door opens down.
Sorry about the pic but it never comes out right, even after rotating it.
Maybe someone can pass on the trick to get it right side up.

We put a convection oven into a previous boat. To get the heat out, I put a 120V bilge blower hooked to a relay so that when the oven was on the blower would extract the heat and exhaust it overboard. Worked well. I didn't want to over heat the cabinet and also didn't want all that extra heat inside the cabin for the A/C to deal with.
