She likes to cook full meals aboard, which usually means copious pots, utensils and dishes for the aforesaid (that's a legal term) scullery person to wash up.

Life afloat can be a bit**ch sometimes.

Greetings,
Rather than:

I much prefer:



MUCH better for whisking flat pans when making gravies and sauces.
Gets into the corners better.

Al`s electric skillet, which we call an electric frypan, is useful and versatile.
My childhood memories of seeing the contents of the pressure cooker on the ceiling still put me off using one.
We love our espresso machine, I know the onboard machine has been done to death on TF, but proper coffee is a joy onboard,and if you like ruining coffee with milk you can foam milk with it. We have a small grinder so beans are fresh ground. And "to go" cups, for the occasional neighbour request.

Good thought...we carry a small number of disposable cups for friends, too.

My Cuissinart pressure cooker has several layers of safety devices to prevent inadvertent release of pressure and contents. There are electronic controls and mechanical locks that must all work in concert to allow the lid to be opened. Also, years ago the 'stone' would go flying if the pressure built up beyond a safe limit. Today's machine does not have that scary trait.

We got ours (a NuWave) as a gift and proceeded to try it in the presence of the gifters. Steaks were our first effort and they were done to a "T". Grease spatter was the big culprit and the clean up took quite some time. When cooking anything that might "spatter", a cake saver that covers the cook top might be a good idea!

The only downside is the first time you use it, you quickly find out its too small to smoke everything you have in the fridge at once. LOL
Just sent her the link.

Coffee making is paramount to morning cruises so we use a Cozyna hand Burr grinder and an AeroPress coffee press. Smoothest cup of Coffee I have ever made. Not a French press at all, easy simple and quick clean up.

Nordicware's microwave slow cooker can cook a pot roast in 25 minutes. Tastes great and saves hours of generator run time.

I dont carry it aboard , but taking all the SS pots off and spending a while at the buffing wheel seems to ielight the bride.

Ditto with removing all the knives for a quick pass om the belt sander with a fine emery belt.

But I like rust on my steak knives, it saves on seasoning.

Australian steak is so tender you don't need a knife

I was lucky enough to live in Townsville between the ages of 9 and 13. I don't remember much about the meat tenderness but I definitely remember the countryside. Awesome place.

Ann wants me to add that in her expert opinion, the best gadget by far that she bought was a vacuum sealer, and as the grateful recipient of her wonderful cooking, I have to agree. We can stock up at Costco and the taste and texture difference it makes in freezing meat, fish and chicken is tremendous. She also uses it for thick sauces.

In addition, we found many other uses including preserving small batteries and other spare parts prone to corrosion and exposure.

Good call on the vacuum sealer. If you seal your fresh caught fish without rinsing off the filets before hand they will taste just a fresh a year later.

My brother who cruised the Sea of Cortez for many years also used a vacuum sealer and stocked up on foods from Costco, as well. He said it was the best thing he ever learned about cruising. Since I was aboard on a couple of those trips, I heartily agree!
