Have to put in a pointless plug for Origo alcohol. Low tech, unbreakable, unexplodable, reliable, affordable, available and works fine. For boiling water it is not noticeably different from a home stove. Baking does take a bit longer to come to temperature, but I'll live with that.
I tell you, having had a propane stove on an Ericson I owned, my peace of mind with an alcohol stove is priceless. We have two small kids, not to mention tons of sailing guests, and I never have to worry whether the propane sniffer is broken, the stove was turned on, a hose is leaking, and so forth.
If I replaced my stove today, I'd buy another Origo, but since they never wear out, I won't have to do that!!!!! BTW, I'm not a true Luddite. Love technology, so long as it truly makes more sense. Otherwise, I prefer to keep it simple, and fixable, and reliable, and available, and unexplodable, and low tech
Ooh, don't even bother to shoot me down, as I know already I am in the minority.
