I was very happy to find a tea kettle and a pressure cooker on the boat when I bought it. Use them both regularly at home and hope to use it often when on the boat (when it's in the water).

One more thing to pick up next time I am at my parents house! I am sure she has not used it in 30 years.

I am glad I am in a French port where they have real UHT cream. so it doesnt need to be refirgerated. Buy it and leave it in the cupboard till you need it then cool it down. Refrigerate after opening to store, of course.

If I could find the old hand beater I would love it.

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

Yes, I am looking for one of those! Used to have to make whipped cream with one at my grandmother's cabin. I figure nowadays I will have to go to an antique or "junk" shop to even find one. Similarly, looking for a hand drill. I don't know who I'm so worried about baking cookies for if I'm going off the grid...but logic hasn't caught up yet, and hopefully never will!

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

Love having my tea kettle to heat water for coffee and tea and getting much use from my pressure cooker. I bought a French Press and find that it is not worth the hassle to clean the grinds out...a mess and ALWAYS still some grinds going down the sink. I use a Melita directly into my insulated mug. I use my microwave occasionally to re-heat and in theory will use for popcorn, but want to minimize shore power dependency. Did not bother bringing anything like coffee maker, Cuisinart, or hot pot aboard. Likely to work on replacing hand mixer and stick blender with manual or battery-operated alternatives.

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

I have a microwave after reading a article written bya very experience cruising couple, in it they stated they had one for heavy weather sailing ,as it negated using the stove with potential hot whatever and getting burned, made sense to me, so i have a small 800 watt unit powered thru a inverter and i have used it more than once in heavy weather, it's fast and safe.

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

Couple of points re recent mini cruise .....

Summer .... pressure cooker not used at all. Yes it got good use in winter but in warm weather, think tits on a bull.

Stacking Cookware .... rarely used but see below re food processors.

Manual Machines .... manually operated blender and food processer are on our list. Given that we don't spend a lot of time plugged into shore power (48 hours in four weeks) recharging appliance batteries is a pain in the butt, even with only telephones and computers it seems never ending. I reckon that with a manual FP we'll then make more use of the stacking cookware, particularly the stock pot for both cold summer soups and hot winter.

Grills (aka BBQs) .... we currently have one of those round Magma kettle jobs. Rectangular unit is on the way. While the round is fine for grilling a couple of steaks or a whole fish, being able to use the grill as , in effect, a two burner stove would be a great boon. Cooking below decks in an Australian summer is just plain silly.

Cockpit work table .... havn't worked this out yet and maybe it can be an add on to the new BBQ but having a work table available while one cooks would make life so much easier. Cockpit table is too far away from the bbq to be practical, particularly with a non walk through cockpit.

btw .... what brand of grill do you use ?

cheers

edit - erkkk ... should have posted this in the Galley Equip thread not the provisioning thread. Post is on the move.
