Electric cooking

It would be very hard to produce enough energy off of wind generators and solar panels to make up for the emormous electrical consumption of an electric stove. I know some people havd successfully used microwaves but I suspect that you will be running your engine a lot to keep up with the drain.

I just converted my boat from LPG to catalyzed alcohol stove/oven. It puts out close to the same heat and is a less expensive renewable resource.
