We have a 3 burner stove and which of the 3 burners is used depends upon what my wife or I happen to be cooking. Something that only needs be kept on low heat for some while does qute well on the small center burner at the back of the range-top. Other things that need more heat go on the front burners and we have used both at the same time. Rarely 3 however.
On the Microwave front, we have an Origo that is very efficient. It allows us to re-heat preprepared meals while underway pretty much regardless of weather conditions, even if we have to eat from a pouch (rarely), and does so without overheating the cabin as would a stove top. With the micro-wave we can prepare "mid-rats" easily and efficiently without disturbing the off-watch and pop-corn becomes an easy treat without stenching out the boat.
While I fought the micro-wave idea, having conceded the matter, my wife was correct. It is a valuable asset.
"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
