The stove is the only thing on a boat that one uses more than the dinghy! Its the second most used thing on this boat except the head (used to issue internet advice). Its used 3 meals per day and sundry cups of coffee at anchor and at sea even more!
Unless you are required by law dump the idea of an electronic solinoid.
I admit, I am being swayed by short term costs vs long term convenience/use. My Citation has the propane Force 10 and the wife has gotten used to its idiosyncrasies (hot spots, etc). Maybe I will get the portable oven for the Citation and swap for the Force 10...hmmm!
