Corelle dishes are great. They clean up with a lot less water than plastic and you have to hit them hard on something metal to break them.
Pressure cookers are the most over-rated junk on the planet, IMO, we threw ours in the thrift store pile when it didn't sell at a yard sale.
A 12" X 12" unglazed tile on the bottom of the oven helps to lessen the burned cookie bottoms.

I would say 4 of my local 6 friends that sail for any length of time do this as well. Not only to save space I am told but to keep the size of the trash bag hanging off the side of the counter from getting too large in a given time. Packaging takes up tons of space not only in the cupboard but in the trash as well.

Donna,

I am not at all convinced about the respectable but wishing to be hip we ordered one yesterday. Should be interesting as we went for about the smallest we could find whereas most people seem to go for massive when they buy a PC.

Our choice was dictated by the fact that 90% of the time there is only the two of us on board so something that can handle two people's needs easily and four at a push seemed perfect. At only 22cm diameter it is also a perfect size for a two burner boat stove. We shall see how it pans out. Yes I am slightly concerned that it will turn out to be too small but I'm quietly confident.



It is coming from overseas so will be a few weeks before I see it and can test it but I'll report back.

ha bloody ha ... hey its not the island thats the problem its the water surrounding it ....

Nice to know you drop tongs over board as well. Floaties eh ? What a grand idea. Pity the bloody boat show was last month.

Other stuff.

I last used a pressure cooker thirty years ago so yep this is going to be an experiment but we do a lot of casserole type things in winter and when cooked conventionally that is an awful lot of fuel burnt. I like that the one we have chosen is relatively shallow so we can use it as a frying pan to kick off a dish and then seal it up to do the time intensive stuff.

We are lucky and have a boat big enough to store both china and glass plus melamine. If however it came to the crunch I'd go melamine and we always use the stuff when offshore or coastal. To be frank, I do not like Corian one little bit. Yep, it can withstand impact pretty well but get it at the right angle and blammo, goes off like a car windscreen. An absolute mongrel to clean up. Now I know this puts me into crotchety old fart territory but I am never going to use plastic goblets. If I'm going to drink wine out of plastic then it will be a tumbler. Plastic goblets are just plain silly. Grumble grumble grinch grinch.

Ye verily to those who speak of resealable containers but try and avoid round. Square or rectangular shapes waste less space and tend to be easier to access from front opening lockers. Positive lock seals, not just push on lids. If you take them off the boat and dishwash them be careful. The seals do not like super hot water unless of course they are silicon.

While I don't much like alcohol stoves I can see their value in a minimal kitchen but I doubt I'd ever want one as a BBQ. Nonetheless and given that in Sydney we have more than the occasional rainless days and a summer that lasts longer than a fleeting moment we do get good use from our BBQ unlike it seems our more sodden Canadian cousins.

Yea to sauces, spices and herbs but also to chorizo, salami and the like in sausage form. Hang 'em up in the galley and they will last for yonks.

Knives knives knives, yes yes yes.

btw, i don't drop tongs in the drink. well-meaning high maintenance overzealous guests who insist on cooking do... but only after they have broken the salon table, lost a beer opener overboard and run 200 bloody feet of anchor rode out whilst attempting to assist in anchoring in 5' of water.
Nice enough guy..... on the dirt. Bloody menace on a boat.

Re: The Galley - Must Haves, Don't Needs & Wish List

I don't live on a boat, but since no one else has mentioned this... I wouldn't want to break a Corelle, or any other tempered-glass-type piece of crockery on a boat. They explode, and the pieces are basically the same as glass: invisibly tiny and razor sharp. :-(

Dropping a pair of tongs overboard is unfortunate; dropping a church key overboard is a borderline keelhauling worthy offense...

Luckily we have three more churchkeys aboard....
now all on floaties. Hell, between the tongs, the churchkeys and the ladles all on floaties (again, don't ask) and the hanging provision hammocks, our galley resembles a disassembled japanese tuna net.
There is a fine line between being a drunk and being an idiot, and overpreparedness defines that line.
