Our Force 10 stove is the European
model as it was a bit smaller than the standard model. Our Guenevere
is only 27 feet you know. ;-)
This is our Fagor Pressure Cooker. We LOVE it a lot and it has seen a LOT of use aboard our boat. So much so, we even did a DVD of some of our favorite recipes in it (click HERE to see info on the DVD). We like the yoke top to it. For our top to seal, the arm across the top slide into a holder on each side. You then tighten a screw knob on top to apply pressure to the top. By making the seal this way, if too much pressure builds up inside the cooker, the top simply lifts off the pot and it will NOT explode! It is also easy to open it, even under pressure. This allows more latitude in cooking as you can take it off the fire, open it, drop in another food, reseal it and you are off cooking again in a minute.
I would love to provide a link to it, but they, or this type PC are hard to find now. We have had this one for about 20 years. LOOK for one, it's worth it!
3stage water filter. We use this for ALL of our drinking or cooking
water. YES, we have and use a water maker, but just in case, we use
this also. |
We bought 12 spare filters when we departed and it took us quite some time to go through them. Each filter lasts 3 to 4 months. We know when to change them, when the water flow slows way down.
By the way, this setup is WAY less $$$ than the "marine" water filters a lot of people try to sell you and works just as well or better!

|I originally bought Jill a set of the Cuisinart nesting pans to use as we cruised. |
What we found was that they were very good, but also very heavy. They did store nicely, but between these and our pressure cooker, the storage area was just about full.
We then bought the below item, for a lot less $$. NOT nearly as nice, but very usable.

Nesting SS Cook Set
Our stainless pots and pans.
bought this set of stainless Steel pats and pans to use aboard.
We were worried about them as they seemed a bit light. Once back
at the boat we were very happy to find that, once nested, they fit
EXACTLY inside of our Pressure cooker. So storage is a snap.
|We have tried a number of
different coffee makers. We
first tried a Melita drip pot, but were
afraid we would break the glass, and did not know what to do when we run out of
filters. We tried a plastic coffee press from West
Marine, but the coffee was cold almost before we could drink it. |
We have now found THE ANSWER! We were given two, one cup stainless steel, thermal mug, coffee presses and a small stainless steel thermal coffee press.
THEY WORK GREAT! Finally we found a coffee maker that works for both of us, and guests! Best of all, I get my coffee to MY liking and Jill gets hers as strong as she likes it, and all out of the same pot of hot water. They came from Starbucks but you can get them in a number of places.

|That is our "Fat Man" cooking timer. It was given to us as a going away
gift. When we got it, we were not sure if we would use it or how long
it would last. To date, we have used it almost EVERY day when have been
aboard, and it's STILL working!|
Now we are thinking about getting a second one to make sure we are not forced to do without one!

We LOVE Silicone cookware! It
stores easy and does not rattle. But, one of it's strengths is also a
weakness. It may not hold it's shape.

|Now you can get the muffen cups in about any shape. This one is good for a number of uses.|
Silicone Mold, Heart
THE BEST ONE YET! A dough nut
LET me tell you how SWEET it is to have been at anchor for a couple of weeks, without seeing another boat,
waking up and shortly having a cup of coffee AND fresh baked dough nuts!
TALK ABOUT LUXURY LIVING!
Silicone Mold, makes 18 Mini dough nuts or Savarins
Silicone Mold, makes 8 dough nuts or Savarins
Silicone Mold, makes 6 dough nuts or Savarins
I looked for a 12 dough nut maker like ours, but could not fine one.

have one pan like this aboard. We like it, BUT, like we
said, it will NOT hold it's shape very well. To use it, we MUST put it
on a metal cookie sheet BEFORE we fill it with anything. It must stay
on that sheet until we turn out what ever we make in it.|

Our can opener. We used to have a few
different types aboard. But all of them left the can with a sharp
edge. Not only on the top of the can, but also on the lid. This
opener slices through the side of the seam that seals the top to the
can. Once the top is removed, there are NO sharp edges! And the top will fit back on. VERY handy if
the boat is moving.

|Our waffle maker. |
We only use it a few times each year, but when we do, it's wonderful!
A real treat. After a few weeks out, having a very nice brunch in the cockpit, on a warm morning, is's truely magical.

have a small kitchen scale aboard. We like this style that
has weight in BOTH grams AND Onces! Once you are outside
the US, it's nice to just convert the scale over and not have to do the math.|

is something that we carry aboard, not just for checking the temp of
the food, but also to just make sure the oven temp is correct. The
timer option is also very handy, in addition to our "Fat Man" (see
