Pain to light. Poor heat control. Excellent fiddles and good oven for bread making.

Don't buy if you have a sensitive nose.

Too much of a heat source if you cruise in a warm climate but good for cold weather cruising.

Quality Kero is hard to find in some places

EXPENSIVE!

Just taken my Taylors 030 cooker out and sold it in 24 hrs.

Mine was in the boat when I bought it 6 years ago, yes it looks great, yes it is very economical to run, and yes it's safe and does not smell, also setting the oven door to 45 Degrees used it as a heater.

But, agree the oven is difficult to control the heat and I have either burnt or undercooked food at times and yes they are a pain to light if you are in a hurry.

Would I pay over 2000 for any cooker, no way!

Sadly I will be installing a gas cooker

Nothing sad about a gas cooker with a proper installation. Easiest to use and the best for cooking in my experience.

I live aboard and use my Force 10 daily, have for years.
