Seaward Ovens

Looking for opinions on the Seaward Model 3174 Euro 3 burner Oven. How you like it, performance, would you buy one again? Compared to the Force 10?

Alan, I have not used the Seaward but we considered it - briefly - when replacing the alcohol stove on our 424. The Seaward seemed less elegantly finished and at least one model in our size range did not come with burner heat sensors, which I think is unacceptable. I also found the model we were considering had a thermostatically controlled oven. This seems an ''improvement'' to some and that''s why Force 10 started offering this as an option, as well. But I think this is another failure point, and definitely don''t find its needed on a well built oven. (We bake a LOT and find the F10 oven offers very even, controllable heat).

FYI we found the F10 3-burner model fit perfectly (tho'' snugly) in the stock fiberglass alcove in our 424 galley (we have the ''U'' galley) and have lots of swinging room. This is our 2nd F10 stove (I installed an earlier 3-burner model on a H-R 35) and we''ve been pleased both times. They could do a better job of making the battery holder, and making it accessible - this is what powers the self-light feature (which after 6 years, 4 living aboard, have all but gone away now). So...not a perfect product, but perfect enough.

Where do you sail your 424?

It looks like this model has both the thermostatically controlled oven and burner heat sensors, which I also consider a must. It would be nice if it was also a drop in to my 424. The current stove is a HillerRanger which is an older Seaward Product, which has many obelete and non-working parts at present.
The 424 is on Lake Ontario. By the way, I''ll be in London in March, but I''ll take that off line. I''ll e-mail you, maybe we can meet up.

I don''t have that model, but I do have another Seward model, and I can say that they were very friendly and helpful to me over the phone when I called for spare parts for my stove. They sent me a new manual for free, as we bought a boat and the stove was already installed. Customer service seems pretty good

Hope that helps you decide.

I found this information on a site that has a list of upgrades for Catalina Sail boats.
this company will convert your old Seaward/Hiller stove to propane for about $450 thats cheeper than the cheapest stove $765 that is really not that good of a stove and far better than $1400.
See the info at http://www.tauntonstove.com/
I hope this helps someone save a few hundred bucks

We lived on a houseboat for five years with a three burner electric. You can probably do some serious cooking with the force ten gas. the electric princess is rather limiting. It is very difficult to use anything bigger than a ten inch pot on top.
