Re: safe cooking

wow! i had requested a price quote from wallace on the price of a cooktop for my boat, just out of curiosity. with all the needed equipment, it was $3,337. i think i'll stick with the origo or campmate. can anyone tell me if there is any reason why the campmate is less advisable that the origo? is the price difference one of brand name or quality?

Re: safe cooking

I think you mean CookMate. It is a less expensive copy of an Origo.

oh. yeah. you're right. that's what i mean. is there a quality difference? you know, sometimes the difference in price of an item is just name recognition and hasd nothing to do with the value of the actual item. other times, it does show inferior quality.

Re: safe cooking

The CookMate is a good stove.

Re: safe cooking

I have the Origo 4000 on my Pearson and my friend's Yankee 30 has the equivalent CookMate. I previously had a boat with the Origo 3000.

The CookMate has a few more sharp edges on the inside and the latch for holding it closed shoots apart into 4 pieces if you unscrew it, where the one on the Origo is completely captive. Functionally they are the same. For the slight extra cost I'd personally get the Origo, but if every penny matters then the CookMate is fine. You can pretty easily find a used Origo for half the price of a new CookMate.

guitarguy: You are dropping units left and right and treating amps at 12v the same as amps at 110v. The math doesn't work.
mitiempo and captain jack like this.

Therein lies the problem with any electric cooker on a boat.

No, no, NO!! A Watt is a Volt*Amp (there are no units of time involved; unless you want to define Watts as joules/sec). So 1500W = 12.5V*120A. At that rate a pair of Trojan 105 batteries will be 50% discharged in well less than 1 hour. Even a fairly quick meal will draw the average sailboat house bank down to or below its useful capacity. Two burners and/or three meals a day.....? You're either going to have to run the engine several hours a day or have a genset. Physics doesn't lie.
