Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

Hello to all,

Who is happy with their propane burner range oven? What make is it?

Our 3-burner propane range (Force 10 - older model 60351) has come to the end of its life. It did work well. But I am not happy with Force 10 customer service, and I am not sure about the newer models. So I am looking for useful feedback.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

Eno! Its great mate!!!!!!!!! Now all I nead is a Mate to operate it.

She will be really happy with the way all the crud on it should clean off easily.... and theres features I have never used --- Ummmm like theres a handle I just discovered yesterday above this glass bit and when I pulled it the whole front opens just like its a door and theres even space to put stuff inside. Just the right size for my dirty sneakers

Anyway, the Eno works wonderfully but sometimes the food does taste like ****. I have complained.....

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

2 burner without the grill. (Beware the 3 burner may not be a larger stove so you need to fit 3 tiny pots instead of 2 normal size pots)

Its the direct replacement for the one I had before but it had a grill which was rusted out. The grill takes up valuable oven space.

Ensure you get the battery operated ignition. So much easier than matches or lighters on a boat.

Mine is 3 years old.

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

I have a Mariner Princess (made by Dickenson) 2-burner propane stove / oven on my boat, and it works great. It's original to tbe boat - circa 1981 - but it still works like a charm. The oven heats fairly evenly, but will only get up to about 350 degrees. There's a broiler feature, also, which comes in handy for crisping the tops of pizzas and cheesey garlic toast.

Hmmmmmm....broiled cheesey toast......

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

A second shout out for Eno. The two burner + Oven one is what I've got experience with. Works like a charm!

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

We put a new Dickinson Mediterranean three burner range/oven in the boat a couple of years ago. Very happy with it, and the customer service we got with some initial issues (ours was one of the first off the production line, they replaced the first one with a new one that had several improvements made). The burners put out a lot more btu than most other stoves and one of them is huge (great for heating a big pot of water for pasta). I would definitely recommend it.

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

Previous boat had a Force Ten. Pretty good. Griller (broiler) inside oven so doesn't take up as much space though the ceramic element is way fragile and hopelessly unprotected. Love the fold away oven door. Wish we had gone for three not two burner. Pot holders are rubbish. Eight years old or thereabouts. Still going strong.

Current boat has Smev. No grill. Shame. Other than that not bad. Ten years old, been half way around the world and still works fine.

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

Mark, would you believe the "glass opening door thing" was a feature that had never been used (other than for bread storage) for my boat's the first 15 seasons? And the couple who owned it cruised and lived aboard with no BBQ for the last 5 summers. Guess they liked scrambled eggs and pasta.

I can't remember what my stove is (it's ok but nothing special, so it's probably not worth recommending).

Re: Survey about Propane Burner/Oven Range

agoffin. with all due respect it's pretty difficult for a stove to have an end to it's useful life. gas burning equipment is quite reliable and simple in operation.. unless you want to spend $$$ for a new one, why not just replace the parts you need to?
