There is nothing that gadgets do that I can't do with an old school (analog...LOL!!) french (chef) knife. I also keep a small santoku and a large paring knife on the boat.
And one advice regarding set of kitchen knives stored in a butcher block... Be sure to really secure the block AND knives while underway, just to avoid seeing one of the big knives stuck in your wood floor after a big headless boater strongly wake you at full speed... Don't ask how I know.

Greetings,
On the topic of "gadgets"...I'm in agreement BUT there are two that I wouldn't do without. One is a juicer:



and the other is a self cleaning garlic press.



You can get the juicers in lime, lemon and orange size (green, yellow, orange color). I would suggest the largest (orange). Then you can handle all citrus. http://www.cooks.com/recipe/xu83g7ok...ter-sauce.html

I use the same Weber and curious what rail mount is used for the grill, it's exactly what I've been looking to add.

Ha! On the boat I worked on years ago, a 50-foot trawler carrying tourists in the Galápagos Islands, we didn't even carry a can opener! Our cook, Victor, just used a big-ass chef's knife to open all the cans.

And he had all his fingers!

Good reminder; yep we've got a garlic press.

A meat thermometer, too.

And a can opener, although it doesn't get much use.

Not product specific, however:

One of the advantages of having the boat behind the house is that, whenever we are supplying for a long trip, we simply move what we want from the house to the boat and then back again afterwards. This means we have home quality products on the boat.

That includes cookware, small appliances, Wushof knife set, wireless speakers etc.

One thing we did replicate for the boat was this:

- combo convection/microwave oven
- a propane grill, outside (ours is a very old Magma, looks like Boatpoker's; mixed feelings about the actual model...)
- a set of good cooking and steak knives (our are Henckels)
- one of the several flatware sets we were given at our wedding
- an extended set of a Corel dinner service plus extra complementary pieces
- a vacuum packer (getting used to it...)
- a "plastic" (?) NordicWare microwave insert thing, with ridges on one side, rides on the turntable, great for bacon!

I like the pizza brick idea; the one we use at home works great... gotta try that on the boat grill!

I think I'll eventually shop for a flat grille/skillet to augment the nesting set. The nesting skillet (also a lid for the whole set) works fine but the sides are so high it makes turning eggs a bit of a chore... and the sides aren't rounded enough like an omelet pan so actually flipping eggs hasn't worked all that well...

Our original was a Black & Decker under-counter Spacesaver thing; worked OK but eventually crapped out. Replaced it with a countertop Krupps, worked OK but needed counter space. Replaced that more recently with another B&D Spacesaver, works OK and at least we can slide some stuff (drying rack, etc.) underneath it sometimes to make a more usable counter area during prep.

When you cook in a convection oven you should routinely plan on reducing the temperature about 25 degrees or so.

For grilling this for us is perfect. Electric grill no temperature adjustment, cooks fast. Runs off gen or inverter too. I got this from a thrift store for $10 years ago. Lined with foil, it is easy to clean up. Used this past weekend.

I too had a B&D space saver, on my N46. MORE counter room. Alas, this AT34 does not have an "under cover space" so the coffee pot sits in the corner on the counter. This AT as more food prep space than the N46 so it's a trade off, I guess. I'm happy.

We had one in a past home and it worked fine. Since then, we have moved to using a Keurig. We use it both at home and have a small one on the boat. Yeah, using the Keurig is more expensive and less environmentally responsible. However, we really like the coffee we are using and enjoy the convenience of being able to make a cup quickly at any time rather than making a pot of coffee that may for may not be drunk.

Idea AusCan: Aboard Seaweed I have two portable butane burners. Butane is expensive and propane is not. Therefore I bought a $22 (ouch!!!) adapter that allows me to attach a regular propane bottle to the butane burner.

This one:

Instead of a press for fruit there's a "new way" in town I learned on Pinterest. Use your tongs. Cut the fruit in half, then insert fruit as far up toward the hinge as possible. Squeeze. Yes there's the seed issue, however in my limited space tongs work.

Another Perfect pecan cracker is here:

Okay, well I also use mine to crimp terminal ends. But seriously, come October or November they will serve a much more scrumptious purpose. Once you get the adjustment correct every shell will crack without breaking the pecans inside.

That's the problem. Before when opening pecans I'd eat the broken ones and be satisfied. With vise grips I can break an entire grocery sack and only have one or two broken pieces. Somehow I manage though.....

I am the biggest Galley Gear collector, or at least shopper. I ponder and believe that with one more gizmo I'll become a fabulous cook.

I just bought a gizmo to put in with the eggs to tell me the state of hardness. It was $3 at Walmart, and my girlfriend on another Schucker says she loves hers. I'll test it later today. Once it's cooler I intend to make deviled eggs. It's called an Eggy Time

I am organizing my galley and trying to create a simple, productive, easy space to suit my liveaboard, cruising needs.

I need a new cooktop. The one I have now (that does not work and needs updated) was alcohol/electric.

I am thinking of a two burner electric induction cooktop to fit in the space where the old cooktop is now. I would operate it off solar/battery while cruising.

I would appreciate any insight, advice, suggestions for specific cooktops you might be aware of.

Thanks.

Tim
