I don't have one - in all honesty this doesn't worry me as I am not much of a chef and probably wouldn't get much use out of it anyway. The only real benefit I can see is that you can cook bread. However I take a 240V breadmaker on longer trips and use this instead.



I guess at the end of the day it depends on your cooking habits - it is a lot of space to take up for something that may not get much use.

We are thinking we'll get a barbecue with a lid which we can use as an oven. We have an oven on the current boat and it virtually never gets used. It heats the inside of the boat up too much!

Check out the cobb for an alternative. Shouldn't be used inside though. Cobb website will provide all the info you need and ebay (cobb bbq) will give you some buying options Regards John (Real Easy)

I definatly agree on the bbq option, we had a really sweet lookin' broadwater stove with oven on our last boat, used it probably 5 times in as many years but could cook fantastic roasts etc on the barby with lid & plan to go all out on the bbq on the next vessel. Ovens are good on monos 'cos they ballast the stove nice so it stays more level & safe with a big pot on top! Regards from Jeff. :D

Our yacht will have an oven. Most of the reasons already raised (for and against in this thread) are all valid. What swayed us is the 'resale' thing. I don't know why it is, but the two brokers we spoke too both said that the oven would be a sales asset.



Is the AUD $500+ for the oven worth it?...well we won't know in the short term as we are not intending to sell, but are hoping that it will add another AUD $3-5 K at resale down the line. We are getting a good gas SS BBQ with oven lid, for the rear as this is the party area and socialising spot.

One of the things we noticed about Take it Easy when we had a look was that it did not have a oven. We thought the old cast iron camp oven would do all the baking we need .

Does it make a big difference on resale ?
