roline 6 of one, 1/2 dozen of the other. We all will have unique requirements and desires and in some cases, we might even need to compromise. I replaced the Kenon pressurized alcohol stove with a Force 10 2 burner with broiler. Would have preferred the oven for functionality , but did not want to give up the stowage space. I ended up with more storage by making a slide out shelf with a stowage box behind the stove in what was waisted space. Propane needs a controller with leak sniffers, tank containment locker and a good grade hi pressure connect hose.

sck5 No flareups with an Origo because they arent pressurized. No moving parts to break and alcohol wont collect in the bilge and blow up because it evaporates. Small price to pay for a little bit longer to boil water. I would never have a pressurized alcohol stove but I like my Origo.

xsboats Alcohol is for cooks, not cooking. You need a pressure cooker to compensate for the lack of btu's, extra firefighting equipment for the flare-ups, and a gas mask for the fumes.

Ken, Origo does make an oven that fits below the 2 burner stove. Not cheap.

Does anyone use a diesel stove/oven? I''ve heard good things about them, but I''m don''t know if they produce enough heat to cook well. I''d rather use one fuel. And I noticed one boat that had a diesel stove/oven in it and then a propane cook top. I always supposed it cooked better than the diesel.

We refited an Origo on our boat after the survey found that the propane system was not up to code. (Previous owner did a poor DIY, install.)

Having used propane on charters, and friends boats, and cruising all summer with our Origo, I would endorse the Origo. (I also am not affiliated with the company.) Ours was purchased second hand, was ten years old, and other than a good cleaning works faultlessly. We didn''t even need to replace the burner cannisters.

The big plus is when cruising, you can buy 24 hours cooking time of fuel, (3 litres) for around six bucks at any hardware store, throw it in your backpack, and keep walking. No heavy propane tanks to drag around.
