Most marine stoves / ovens come with built-in gimbal hardware, so when you want to mount a new one you just need to buy and install the brackets. In removing the propane stove and its system, and alongside changing from a diesel engine to an electric motor, our goal is overall reduced reliance on fuels that need to be replenished.
We spent a lot of time early in the quarantine, when we thought the boat would be done sooner and by professionals, researching and testing electric cooking appliances. We really thought the Kenyon cooktop would be for us, but found the hob sizes to be really undersized compared to even our moderate-sized stock pots. The True Induction Mini Duo, our final choice, is perfect for the existing cooktop space, the hob sizes fit all our pots and pans, and it has the most discreet “whining” noise of any of the induction stoves we tested. We also got a Duxtop portable as a 3rd burner, which we can use anywhere we run an extension cable.
The oven was a lot harder to problem-solve, because most home electric ovens would have been perfect, but Ayala’s available space fore to aft is about 1 inch too small to accommodate the smallest home electric oven. We looked at a lot of convection oven / microwave combinations, but had a lot of specifications – size, capacity (I refused to go any smaller than the propane oven, only 1.1-cu ft), it couldn’t look too much like a microwave, a door that opened down instead of to either side, and from a reputable brand. In the end, the only one that satisfied every single spec was Samsung’s PowerGrill Duo 1.2-cu ft 1600-Watt Countertop Convection Microwave (Black Stainless Steel). The ultimate test was weather it could properly bake yeasted breads, since it’s the main thing I use an oven for, and it passed that test perfectly.
