electric skillet etc

We purchased a portable induction cooktop @ Costco(Canada), which is similar to the Nuwave. My wife isn't (yet) fully convinced, but with fine temperature and cooking time control, my plan is to evantually get ride of the coffee maker, electric skillet, slow cooker we have a standard size one, but will instead use a smaller pot in the induction). If needed, I'll eventually get a 2nd induction unit, and use it outside as well via an extension from the power post. We are slowly bulding a supply of induction suitable cooking ware, the most recent of which is one with something like a melted stone covering, which so far has been GREAT for cleanup, and appears to be quite durable. I forget the brand name, but it is from Europe I think, and they sell both regular and induction suitable models.

A cast iron grill, coffee pot and crock pot. Does your unit have a microwave? A Coleman style stove or grill with a spare 20 pound tank for outside cooking. A standard set of pots and pans. Even though I like cast iron aluminum are cheaper and lighter for the trailer. You may want a toaster. This should cover your "must haves".

Think about what you have at home and how often you use it. For example, I have a toaster oven but rarely use it so don't need one in my trailer. A small microwave is a different story, use one almost every day.

Non-Electric

On the flip side, we prefer gas cooking -- always have, always will. We, too, don't like cooking meat or anything pungent inside our RV, so bought a propane cookstove and burner to hook up outside.

Being single I do a lot of cooking frozen meals in the microwave. Either that or on the grill or a 2 burner propane stove outside. Don't think the oven inside has ever been used (bought my trailer used) and doubt if I will ever use it.

Before heading out for 3 weeks in a new camper, I would suggest driveway camping or a local campground to find out what accessories and tools you need.

We tend to carry over our minimalist mentality from our backpacking days. So I showed my wife this thread.

Me: "Look at all the stuff these people are dragging around with them"
Her: "Like what?"
Me: "All kinds of stuff, waffle irons, electric skillets, deep fryers, toaster ovens, blenders, ice makers, margarita machines, egg beaters, crock-pots..."
Her: "I want a crock-pot"
Me: (silence....) Really? (Had the trailer for 8 years, now she wants a crock pot)
Her: Big enough to get a chicken in"
Me: "Under $20"
Her: "OK"

So on the way home from church we will stop at Walmart and get one of these.

Crock-Pot 4-Quart Slow Cooker, Black - Walmart.com

To add to our toaster and 5 cup coffee maker. I'll tell you, this RV life is making us soft.

Love that crack pot, I mean crock pot. We borrow one when we get where we're going. Otherwise it's toaster and coffee maker. I'm not counting the washer/dryer.

Just a thought - I got a George Foreman 360 electric. You can use it to grill and make waffles, paninis, pancakes; plus you can bake a pizza in it. I'm going to try it out as a biscuit baker but haven't gotten to that yet. AND, you really need a pizza stone for your oven if your going to bake - it evens out the oven temp helping to prevent burnt bottom syndrome.

I found a chart on how much power (in watts) all these things draw and attached it to this thread:

How much power (Watts) does this appliance draw?
