Interesting stove for smaller boats?

On another forum someone suggested this stove from Costco. For cooking on a smaller boat that doesn't have a galley. it could be pretty nice!

Yes it's propane. So you would not want to set it on top of the outboard

No affiliation, just liked what I saw.

Re: Interesting stove for smaller boats?

My galley stove is from Harbor freight . Costs $50. All stainless, made in India the best stainless. Non magnetic, no corrosion. Had to replace some non stainless bolts . Bronze burners. Love it. Best galley stove I've ever had.
Is the Costco stove good Indian stainless, or Chinese ( not so good)?

Re: Interesting stove for smaller boats?

It is stainless, and it might be very easy to mount pivot pins for gimbals on the handles. You'd still want to install the proper tubing for the 20lb bottle to be safe. Using the disposable 1lb cannister below would be an explosion waiting to happen. Using it on deck would avoid those problems, but then you'd have to figure some way to secure it and the pots & pans.

Re: Interesting stove for smaller boats?

looked at this as a possible solution for the Cal 28 ... installing the bottle in the lazerette and running the line inside ... love to have a Force 10 but fitting it somewhere is a challenge ... currently refurbing her for the Delta Doo Dah and with a haul-out ... and new running AND standing rigging ... there are precious little resources left to find a used one ...
I make do when living aboard with a hot plate ... a small micro and a toaster oven ... and alot of Trader Joe's ... but then I'm blessed with a partner who is a gourmet cook (among other things) ... nothing like strawberry crepes out on San Francisco Bay for breakfast (even if they are made on one of these in the cockpit ...
