Re: Induction vs electric vs alcohol stove?
I could see using an induction Hot plate when at dockside for convenience. But not as a main cooking source unless I had a nice big boat like Zanshin, I assume he has a onboard generator to charge his batteries. No way would I want to go to the trouble of hooking up a portable generator to be able to cook, if my batteries were low. Two eight foot long solar panels? Where? Why not minimize your electrical demand if you want to go solar?
My only issue with alcohol stoves is that they give me a headache, so I am stuck with propane. Of course I like to cook, so I really like to cook over a flame, not electric. Can't stand cooking on Electric.
