Electric Skillet, Toaster Oven, etc.

Getting ready for our first outing in our new to us Sunseeker 3170ds for a 3 week trip and was considering which pots, pans, electric or otherwise that that experienced travelers have in their gear and how you use and store them for travel. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Thanks, on our way to Walmart tonight and want to make sure to pick things that might be useful that we haven't thought of yet.

A toaster and a coffee maker come to mind. Make it easy on yourself, we toss the stuff in the sink for travel. Later on a blender, waffle maker, crock pot, iron, sewing machine, etc. can be useful if you can store them. Our outings are on the order of 4 months. And always a cordless drill.

That's what I'm talking about, hadn't even thought about some of these things!

Coleman Stove and cast iron. We have a combo electric griddle slow cooker, a waffle iron, rice maker, toaster, Tassimo, Ice Maker, Blender for breakfast smoothies. Power management is key when using electrics.

Thanks! Yeah, I am concerned about power management. Figure we will learn as we go along. Have downloaded the amp usage spreadsheet posted by Turbs so we can judge.

You're on your way! Use electric when full hooked up-why use your propane? 3170 has lrg drawer under stoves and oven is good storage.I also use cabinets overhead for kitchen stuff as well as under dinette seats. Really, lots of room. I love my 3170 especially after mods.happy camping!

You may want to consider an electric space heater for those chilly nights instead of running your furnace and burning fuel. Also a small fan to circulate air and provide white noise, which can be helpful in some campgrounds.

can't live without our Keurig! X2 what Turbs said - Electric Skillet is a good addition - great all-around inside/outside cooking implement .


A large number of folks on the forums get a portable ice maker (We got ours at Sam's Club for $69 on sale). If you keep feeding it water, this beastie can crank out 20# of ice a day! Good bye ice runs!

Instead of a toaster, recommend a toaster oven - it's a tad more versatile.
