Induction vs electric vs alcohol stove?
Ok... so I am remodeling my galley and have the opportunity to take out the old Origo alcohol stove out and put in my choice of stove cooktop... I'm leaning towards the induction cooktops as they are safe (no heat involved) and easy to clean cooktop... most of my cooking will be done while moored or in the slip... I have a portable propane cooktop if need be during voyages... the induction cooktop can also be used while under way since one is 1500 watts and the other is 1300 watts and you can input any wattage between 200-1500 on either of them... they are very efficient and the cooktop is warm to the touch after the pot is removed so it is very safe in my viewpoint actually safer than alcohol or propane... even the regular electric cooktop is unsafe due to the lingering heat of the elements... would this be safe being that it's a magnetic cooktop and might cause electrical interference to the boat's electronics? Am I being too cautious?
