I want the Star Trek food replicator!

Looked at the TV cookplates with a temp dial, but have been told they dont like inverter power.

Decades ago Sears introduced a table saw with a computer in it. I didn't see the need then and I don't see the need now to have to use a microprocessor to boil water. Guess I'm just resistant to change.

If it works as the Wired article indicates, it sounds like it'd be right at home in my galley. There's never enough room for stuff. And my wife , who likes Margaritas , has to lug the home blender aboard for cocktail cruising.

For that function alone , I'm in! Induction cooking is the frosting on the cake.

Greetings,
I suppose I'm a traditionalist and in Mr. OC's camp. Some sort of heat source and a container works for me. A spoon does just fine for stirring as well. I've yet to put a pressure cooker on on board but I can readily see the value of such an addition. As far as Mr. Daddyo's suggestion...

No new gadgets for our galley...GW already has the boat well stocked with about every shape/size/color of galley gadgets she can think of. Same same with our kitchen at home. More gadgets than counter or cupboard space allow.

"“GE could open this tech up to hacker spaces and license the technology to other companies who could invent new functions.”

Ok, so now you would have to worry about your cooktop getting HACKED!

On a side note, we bought a $60 single induction cooktop for our boat last year. They are wonderful, instant heat and low power consumption. We didn't use the Princess range once after we got this gadget. Only drawback is that we had to buy new cookware, non-ferrous does not work.

3-in-1 appliances are nice until you need to do 2 things at once. How an I supposed to cook on the boat without margaritas? I guess I'd have to interrupt cooking dinner to make the second round. Priorities!

Ronlord. If you were as much a dinosaur as many on this form seem to be, you wouldn't have needed new pans for your induction cooktop. You would have still been using cast iron skillets.

Regarding multifunction gear - seems all the latest plotters do many things - charts - radar - fish finding - speed. Not sure many would prefer to replace with stand alone Loran, lead line and taff rail log? LOL!

What's with the guns thing again.

The thread was about kitchen appliances and yet again it gets back to guns or peoples attitudes to them.If you want to talk about guns etc , there is a thread to do that in.It's OTDE(well this is going to be a popular post)

FWIW, the best kitchen appliance is a quality kitchen knife.If you want some Margarita's buy some crushed ice.( gee I'm sounding like my dad)

Very true. And I'm learning that the smaller the boat, the more each surface or seat serves as a multi-function device. Flip-over helm seat, convertible settee, cutting board stovetop, flip down tables, wet heads, TV/ER camera monitor, etc.

My boat is a floating multifunction tool!
