Pressure cooker and Dutch oven are good, but one can only down boiled food for so long. Make sure you have a BBQ on your rail. We use our MW to a greater extent than our stoves oven.

Re: cooking on a boat

Thanks for the replies. I'm used to being cold and wet on the boat and forgot about the heat factor of an oven. I'm thinking a on the rail grill is the way to go.

Re: cooking on a boat

There is also a stove top baking gizmo out there that got great ratings. Can't find it at the moment.

I am definitely considering that for my O' Day 25...... Saw one at Gander Mountain today it looks like it would fit nicely. Amazon has the best price I have seen so far too.

I got a camp stove and have been experemting at home but think it's too big for mt 25' boat. I'm planning on living aboard in a few years and want to know if there are other options since the boat is small. Let me know what you are doing. I've lived on it for a week every summer but want to know what you cook, store, need and don't need, and how you eat. I don't eat out much and live on beans, rice and soy milk on the boat but want more variety. What are your thoughts?
Full time cruiser and live aboard. Two kids. Wife. Fat bulldog.

We honestly don't use the stove much. We are in FL. FOr one thing, as mentioned above, it heats up the whole cabin. When anchored out, it really makes it uncomfortable down below. We are HUGE fans of grills. I carry two. It gets the heat outside and gets people out of the boat. If it is raining, we can sub a cast iron skillet (a must on a boat) for the grill for most things. We will use the oven sometimes, but more for caseroles or things like baked chicken.

If you can get an inverter, I really like crock pots and microwaves for the boat. Crock pots properly secured can really make a nice meal and the microwave (in my opinion) is the best way to cook for using the least amount of energy and heat. We do most (most) of our veggies in the microwave as it is quick and does not generate heat. Plus, we have a large solar array (and generator) to keep the propane use low.

We carry a pressure cooker, but honestly, never use it a lot. We always seem to cook things to oblivion in it. ALso, I have seen one of those partially explode (the vent thing on top got stuck and the thing blew out its pressure gauge) and made a horrendous mess. Was in a house, not a boat, but gawd what a mess. You better keep a close eye on that thing when using it on a boat.

Hope that helps.

Brian

PS FOr beans, I probably would use a pressure cooker... but I am not a big bean eater.

Re: cooking on a boat

Brian, Capt Landers on this thread already posted about the "July Pressure Cooker Challenge" - check it out, we've already learned some amazing stuff. Like how to make pasta aboard with *no* extra wasted water: Farfalle all'Arrabbiata - Angry (spicy) Butterflies
- the secret to al dente pressure cooked pasta! | hip pressure cooking - pressure cooker recipes & tips!


This stuff looks crazy, but it works and is delicious. Hey, you convinced us to put a grill on our cockpit rail, the least we can do in return is get you involved with your pressure cooker! Turnabout being fair play, and all of that.
