We have some non stick pots and pans. If I were to live aboard I would add a 12" cast Iron skillet.
We have a cutting board which is attached to the gimballed stove which ables us to pour a cup of coffee on the tilt.
We use individual cup sized mellita paper filters for coffee... coffee ground to espresso or turkish makes a great cuppa. No coffee makers to break or clean. You can even get gold mesh filers and not even use paper. A paper towel works in a pinch. We use them at home and never use the numerous coffee makers we have.
Good knives especially some serrated... they double for cutting tubing.
Small can opener.
Large pot for pasta with a lift out colander. You don't want to be pouring huge pots of boiling water. You lift out the SS colander to drain in the sink. Deal with the cooled water after dinner and you can use it for wash up a bit too. A pasta scoop is an alternative.. if you transfer the pasta to the sauce to finish it off. A good approach.
Sealable salt and pepper shaker
Small vacuum... like a dirt devil. We do the vacuuming while the engine is running and someone is showering... replenish hot water, doesn't use amps and do all the noisy stuff at once.
Vacuum sealer for foods, spares etc... preserves and keeps moisture out. A must! Spare sealer bags.
