    Carl and BrendaWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    July 10, 2020Thinking of taking out the gas cooktop ( I need new sink/countertop) and just using a 2 burner portable induction plate, to give me a nice piece of countertop when not cooking. Toyhauler so the kitchen space is very small. Thoughts?

      pokeysRVadventures July 10, 2020 I'm full time solo and never use the cooktop / oven. A 2 burner hotplate and microwave is all I need.

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) July 10, 2020 We have a 10" portable induction hob.  Love it.  Very efficient use of energy but heats up food quickly.  I presume you are aware that they only work with iron or magnetic stainless steel, but thought I would throw that out here for anyone ...  more

        Habadabeer July 10, 2020 Another obvious presumption is that you must have power: hook ups, generator, or a robust battery bank.

        This would make it an instant deal breaker for anyone like us who prefers to bookdock. Hard to run an electric cooktop off propane!

        Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) February 25 True, but there was no indication in the OP that they were avid boondockers. And there are certainly avid boondockers out there who do not use propane. Solar, LFP batteries, and appropriate inverter/chargers. ~Bruce

      Galway's July 10, 2020 We have an induction cooktop and the wife likes it.  We also carry a Ninja Foodie.  cooktop for breakfast and foodie for dinner.

      Bandit455 July 10, 2020 The only drawback is needing 120vac to cook anything. If that works for you, sounds like a plan!

        Paul & Kay Legare July 10, 2020 We use induction cooktop with inverter when not on shore power. Minimal power consumption.

      LarandSus July 10, 2020 I use the induction burner 80% of the time but do use the propane occasionally.

      The Shipp July 10, 2020 I agree with Bandit455; I have thought about taking out the oven, but want to keep the gas burner. We mostly cook with a pressure cooker/crockpot, prepared before we leave in the morning and usually allowed to cook all day, when using electricity but we n...  more

        Bandit455 July 10, 2020 I can count on one finger the number of times I used my oven. I did replace my microwave with a micro/convection/Advantium oven and love that baby...
        Friends just bought a new super C that is all electric and love it.

        Carl and Brenda July 11, 2020 Thanks, friends! Good to know I’m not crazy. We seldom boondock. And I don’t cook a lot anyway😁

      SACnFrau July 11, 2020 We are in a Class A, and have a portable single induction coil.  My spouse loves it, and has multiple times mentioned how she wants to remove the propane burners and replace with multiple induction coils.  We have a residential fridge, so the bu...  more

      Goin' Haugg Wild July 11, 2020 We have a Class A. I used to take the covers off my stove and put them on our bed every morning. I needed more prep space, so I bought a portable induction cooktop. Gave me so much more space and leaves my sink free for clean-up while cooking.
    • Carl and Brenda
      TeamFoxy July 12, 2020 I made a stove cover from a large plastic cutting board we found at walmart. I screwed 4 small rubber bumpers to the under side that fit in the grate above the burners to keep it from sliding around. When we want to cook, it stands on edge against the wal...  more

      DavFin July 12, 2020 I use a single eye induction hotplate and a convection microwave for most of my cooking.  Easy to move the hotplate outside to minimize odors, heat, and grease splatters on the counters.  I like the propane 3-burner that came with the motorhome ...  more

        Habadabeer February 23 Just a quick update. Based on your feedback (and trying out my Dad’s new induction cooktop), I got a hot plate type for the RV. You were absolutely right, it’s much better than the old coil type electric versions, very responsive like cookin...  more

      Da Bros July 13, 2020 Am planning the same thing with my Toy hauler.. going to rip out the island and make a smaller one to give us some room.. Bought butcher block for the counter tops.. will remove the stove and oven and sink an induction top in its place..

      Dave & Joyce - AZ Mountaineers July 15, 2020 You will miss the cooktop and oven- I just bought a 2 x 2.5 ft. Wooden cutting board that sits on top of the folding glass cooktop cover, also put in a fold down counter extension at end of countertop by sink.

        Habadabeer July 15, 2020 To each his own, I guess. I agree with you that for us, we would be lost without the propane options. We use both the stove and oven all the time, because we live primarily without hook ups. I can see the appeal of induction for those times we can rely on...  more

        DavFin July 20, 2020 Habadabeer, I would not compare an induction cooktop with any other electric cooktop (glass top or spiral resistance element).  Both the physics and the performance is totally different.  My one-element induction hotplate heats up very quickly (...  more

    SPONSORED POST

    The self-closing design on the R.V Bug Stop keeps the slider on the R.Vs screen door closed. Installation is simple and requires no tools. just pull off the film from the tape and attach it to the horizontal rail under the slider. no more yelling at someone for leaving the slider open. with no bugs coming in you can sit back and relax thanks to the R. V. Bug Stop.
