1yeartogo: The cooker you are talking about uses a lot of power. If your docked bound all the time it''s ok but if you plan to travel it''s a waste of money. We live off our house battery bank of 960 amps only of which 50% is usable.
So we look at power usage of each item we put onboard and try to keep our total amp usage at arround 175 per day. Now that''s not just galley amps that''s total amps for the entire boat. Like
radar watermaker, lights, radios, etc. Most of the home items are power hungry and not very good for full time cruisers. We have a Fourwinds mm2 wind generator plus four 110v solarpanels and a gen set for those days of no wind or sun which is rare. 75% of the time we produce more enery than we use and can stay in remote areas for a very long time. Moving aboard full time and traveling takes a change of mind as to convience items for the galley.

Is it like a little George Forman grill? If so,they cook very fast. Although they do require power,they reduce galley time & heat. I have one aboard,but we''re docked presently on shore power.

OK if you have ever been bored and watched the paid programming at night (a landlubber phenomenon) which I hope to never do again..... Have you seen the express101 which cooks small meals in a waffle maker type product. Looking and reading about it it looks to be very fzst and efficient and cook very cool meals.... What would be the drawback on a sailboat. The power it uses?
