Galley Ranges and Small Stoves Update
If there’s one person you want to keep happy on a cruise, it’s the chef, and making sure your galley slave has the right tools to get the job done starts with choosing a quality range or stove that fits your needs. In the final review of a three-part series on galley cookers, testers evaluated four marine stove/oven combos and followed up on the small stoves test with a look at one two-burner and two single-burner cooktops.
We received four galley ranges for our test—three propane stoves and one alcohol stove. The propane models were: Force 10 Gourmet Galley (Model 63351), Seaward Princess Model 3175, and Tasco Model 755LP. The alcohol-fueled Origo 6000 by Dometic was the only non-propane stove we tested. Our hunt for the best marine stove looked at the stoves’ construction, durability, performance, safety, size, and price.
