Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

We took aboard extra stainless steel pots from the house here. The only additions we added were:

An enameled cast iron 2.5 quart French oven, like the Le Creuset, but an off brand. At only 2.5 quarts it is small enough for making small batches of food, I use this pan/pot for everything!!

We also added a Ceramic skillet. Great for quick sauteing of greens, and a fried egg. Yum! But, that is the only thing I use it for. It may not go back onto the boat when we move on in a couple of weeks.

I took the microwave off, that came with the boat, but, I think I am going to find a small 600 watt one to use while we are in our slip. It is crazy to have to bring out pots & pans to reheat an item when a microwave heats it up in a minute or two.

I have decided to take my blender...we quite often make yogurt power shakes for breakfast and again, while at the slip, why not?

That leads me too...should I take my yogurt maker? We eat a lot of yogurt....so this is still being pondered! LOL

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

You can easily make yogurt in a thermos. Those have other uses as well, so I wouldn't bother with such a specific item, especially on a ~30' boat. I can't imagine having a microwave along either on my smallish boat, but know that they are popular.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

Alex, yes, you are correct. I should not bother bringing my yogurt maker and try to make it in a thermos. I guess I just haven't had the nerve to do that yet. Maybe I'll get it a try.

Our boat had a microwave, and it sat on a shelf below our Origo stove and has an a/c plug right there for it. I think I'll buy a small, 600W, unit...I really did miss not having one.

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

I'll at a vote for the Boat Galley website by Carolyn Shearlock. Very informative. I have the Magma stackable pans with non-stick coating, removable handles, and really like them. I use a large Millitta funnel with filter to drip coffee into a thermos-style coffeepot (recommended by Boat Galley, and works great). Corelle dishes, plastic nesting bowls. If there's something you use all the time at home, bring it along. You will surely pick up things along the way that others recommend, etc.

Re: Looking for galley help/ideas

The Cruising for Women site has 2 good threads on galley advice for women new to cruising. They look at a variety of boats and galleys. You can find them here:
WOMEN AND CRUISING Feature Articles

I agree with everybody who advised to use what you can from your home cookwear. You might not be able to fit everything in, but most pots and pans will adapt to life on board. I had a pie tin that rusted after a couple of years. It probably wasn't a good grade of metal. I also was gifted a neat caserol dish that is from Tupperware. Its a type of plastic and is better than ceramic or glass casseroles which can break easily.

And I do have a galley strap and love it. Its easy to snap into and out of and makes cooking on a heel much less stressful. Just my 2 cents
