Diesel Stoves

My first posting! Happy Thanksgiving!
I''m considering replacing my gas cooker with a diesel product. Many diesel stoves are free standing and therefore do not gimbal. Anyone any experience of using such non-gimbaling stoves? In particular how practical are they for offshore cruising?

Apart from cooker safety, a number of diesel stoves also claim to be effective space and water heaters. Are these multi-purpose stoves as good as is claimed?
Thanks for any advice.
