1 YEAR REVIEW - Induction Cooking on a Sailboat - ELECTRICAL BOAT TECH (3 of 7)

Over 1 year ago we dropped propane and went fully electric with an induction stove and electric oven, all powered by Lithium batteries. In this video we do a 1 year review of how it's worked aboard Delos and answer these questions: How is the induction stove and electric oven working out for us? Can we exceed the capacity of the batteries and inverter? What are the benefits and drawbacks of induction cooking on a sailboat? What are the limits of the system? How much power does it use? What is our fallback plan if the system fails? For more details on the gear used for our electrical upgrades please visit: https://svdelos.com/lithium Please subscribe to support our videos! https://www.youtube.com/svdelos/?sub_confirmation=1 Tunes in this episode!

Is the induction cooktop a 110 or 220v unit that then requires the inverter when being used? Same for the oven?

I got some friends that have gone induction on their boat, about 12 months ago as well. Only issue they have is that cant use the 'boost ' function on their stove as it maxs out thier inverter. They run multiple small inverters on their boat, that whole video pretty much reminds me of their reasoning for doing it. Propane can be a massive PITA to find in some areas of the pacific.

Many newer luxury cruising boats are coming out with dual gas/induction stove tops

The Watch Man
The Watch Man - 1 year ago
The only way to heaven is to ask the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, there is no other way to enter the kingdom of heaven

John Chapter 10 Verse 9
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

John Chapter 3 Verse 15 - 18
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world; through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Ask for salvation now remember God does not send anyone to hell you do that yourself by not asking for salvation. Jesus died on the cross he took the sins of everyone, but if you don't ask for salvation then you have to pay the price for your sins and that means hell and hell is only a waiting place for the day of judgment and when you are in front of the white throne on the day of judgment you will go to the lake of fire and it's far worse than what hell can give you 1000's of times worse.

Believe that Jesus is the son of God that God sent his only son to die on the cross for our sins, that he rose the third day and ascended into heaven. Know that you are a sinner. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans Chapter 3 Verse 23).

Ask with your heart speak with your lips do this in private

Romans Chapter 10 Verse 9 - 10
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have
separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away
from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me
avoid sinning again.
I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected
from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become
the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward.
Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will
for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Many will call themselves a Christian but have never asked for salvation so are not born again

Matthew Chapter 24 Verse 11 - 13
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

1 Corinthians Chapter 15 Verse 1 - 5
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

Love this educational videos, but Why do you have to change pots when you get convection stove?
meganote - 1 year ago
I bought a single portable induction burner for the boat, with intentions of ditching the propane stove and tanks. I think it works great, but I haven’t gotten my wife’s buy-in yet. I’m still working on her though... maybe I’ll have her carry a tank next time we have to walk a couple of miles with it to get it filled. What is your solution to avoid having pots slide off the induction burner in roll’y anchorage? Our gas stove has the adjustable pot grabber things on it. Anyone rig a solution for flat cook tops?
twrayl2002 - 1 year ago
I am looking at going completely electric with a generator as a backup. My biggest concerned is lighting which you mentioned. What type of prevention would you recommend.
zheneggmobile - 1 year ago
when you made the switch to lifepo4 and induction and ditched the propane, you made a comment that you thought generator run time would go down, even though you were adding the cooking load. how has that panned out? inquiring minds want to know

I would be very interested in Brady’s realizations as to the experiences and differences in going from a trusted seasoned second-in-command to becoming the captain of the vessel. How did/does that weigh on him/you and has anything about that transition caught you off guard or pleasantly surprised you?

As an emergency backup, you could keep a single-burner alcohol stove and two 12 oz bottles of denatured alcohol. Moreover, in a pinch, I think you guys know how to distill alcohol, 'mirite? ^_^ Rigging Doctor uses that kind of stove and just did a review. https://youtu.be/6YIRCFePn10

I have used a induction convection set up in my home for years now. A couple more advantages are much faster cooking times, I can cook a pound of hamburger in a little over 1 min (yeah that fast, stir constantly) and lower overall power consumption. The convection is great because the moving air gets rid of any hot or cold spots and also cooks at a lower temperature due to its moving air transfers heat more efficiently. I use skillets on the cook top. Nothing works better with induction. I'll never use a different set up, I've been spoiled.

By the way, isn't it funny you keep calling "burner" to those areas in the induction stove? :-)

Yet again s great video! I'm loving the infomational videos just as much as the adventure ones. They certainly show how much you've learnt from equipment and system failures in the past. The propane problems you had previously were so damned annoying that I'd have chucked the damn thing over the side. But as usual you guys figured out a solution.

Great series of videos on power. Super useful, we are trying to decide between 2 solar panels giving us 800W or 3 solar panels giving us 1200W. 3 does create a big wing at the stern and does over hand the sides of the boat bu 0.5m each side.
How do you guys find 3 panels, especially when stern mooring in tight spots!

The panels for us are okay, but the wind generators hanging over the side can easily be knocked by poles, posts, etc. You might be okay though. We are putting on flexible panels in about 2 months, will let you know how those work out for us :)
etalon3141 - 1 year ago
Good stuff. Yup, and at some point the "what if's" can go too far. If a single battery fails I assume you would pull it out of circuit and reconfigure the bank to get the same voltage but at reduced capacity? I assume the internal BMS's will just take a bad battery out of circuit instantly.

I carry a small magnet on my keyring so when I visit OP Shops I can test the pot and pan before I buy. If the magnet sticks it good to go for induction.
My gas oven drives me crazy with its hot spot... I leave a pizza stone on the bottom shelf to try and mitigate the problem... better but not perfect.

I do not live on a sailboat but I ditched using my counter top electric resistive calrod burners after buying a counter top single induction burner. Here in central Fla its hot 7 - 8 months in the year & using a resistive electric heating element adds much heat to the kitchen whereas the induction cooktop heats only the cook pan & its contents. I cook many meals using a 6 Qt pressure cooker & its very economical & much easier to control the cooking level with the induction cooktop. I recently read that induction cooking uses 60 -70% less energy compared to electric resistive heating elements.

Anything magnetic, so no alloys. Standard cast iron works great but is heavy. Most induction friendly pans have a little sticker on the box, and also circles in the base that are used to capture the energy and turn it into heat.

More advantages of induction cooking over propane gas are:
- no forming of carbon dioxide and moisture
- no excess heat passing around the pots and pans
- no chance of carbon monoxide poisoning
- no or less need to ventilate the cabin

Nice update. Six years ago I found severe corrosion on my boats three burner propane stove. I dismantled most of it and have used a small Coleman burner with 1 pound propane canisters since. The one pound canisters are much easier to find than trying to fill a ten pound tank too. https://biankablog.blogspot.com/2013/07/rethinking-propane-on-board-plan-a.html
Now that I also have a new 3400 watt generator for my Electric Propulsion system I think I will add an induction burner as a backup to the primary system since it seems to work fine on Delos.

I love the videos. You asked about other people's usage my average house uses 50KWH a day so your solar is about 10%. But we heat our house with electric and heat hot water. Lots of people think they can do solar because they do not take into account house heat or hot water if they are on natural gas like most people around here.

I would be very interested in how do deal with hot water do you go without a hot shower every day? Heating hot water would probably be one of your larges electrical draws? And if you needed the heat of the boat would you go with a gas heater?

The expert on inverters is EVTV Jack Rickard. The chinese manufacturer he works with now treat him with the utmost respect as he has now properly schooled them on decades of real world knowledge on building a great inverter. His RV design chugs along in the above 6kw range and can take a load of 20kw for enough time to kick on a AC compressor.
Great video and hope you get to play and review the starlink gigabit datastream and show it off to the world next summer 2020

I've been cooking with a Nuwave2 induction portable cooktop for 4-5 years [from Hearthware, Inc in Libertyville, IL]. Much better than gas or electric stoves. I have even seen them offered occasionally on TV in a 2 for 1 price of $99. They also have cookware made for induction cooktops

Maybe a video about the filming and video editing methods you're using? I've been watching since episode 50 or so, your youtube is great thanks man. Really see the progression in quality over the years. Hey have y'all seen "Forbidden Trim" ? , it's a inexpensive surfer movie made partially by crowdfunding, pretty cool movie (I liked it), they used some cool tricks making their film thought you might find it a interesting watch... : )

We are using a 1200w cooktop that we just set on top of our built in propane cooktop :D Maybe some day we'll go all in and rip out the propane and build in some nice electrics.

Have you tried an InstaPot? We've REALLY been enjoying ours. It's just an "intelligent" pressure cooker, but it is really good.

The other thing I like about our electric cooking options is that we can take them out into the cockpit to keep the heat out of the salon/galley.

Even if we remove the propane from the galley I'd like to continue to have a propane grill on the pushpit. But that can have a directly connected tank. I was thinking of putting this on the stern ;)

The other key issue you need to know with induction cooking is the cooking pots and pans need to be magnetic. Copper pots wont work. Glass cookware wont work. When shopping for a fry pan take a magnet with you.

hi every one
you said that you have 220 ac power , what voltage is the cook stove and oven
and what system do you have to split the 220 v into 110 , is it the same as a house but with a marine electrical pannel
happy wind Louis
Sailing SV Delos
Sailing SV Delos - 1 year ago
Hey Louis, all appliances we have including the stove and oven were bought outside the US so they are 220V. I do have a few 110V things, like some tools and a food vacuum bagger. To run those we use a 220V to 110V step down transformer. I think the difference is in a house you can get 220V from 2 phases of 110V (at least in the US anyway) however on Delos we only have single phase power. Hope that helps!

Delos is a lesson in how to be seriously responsible and still have fun occasionally. Brian is the man, he is an entrepreneur, who chucked in the treadmill to go sailing but did it responsibly. He talked his younger bro into going along and in the process Brady matured a great deal. They get to New Zealand and Brian spots Kazza. He knows a good thing when he stumbles over it. The rest as they say is history. Theirs is a well balanced exemplar of how to do life. It's a privilege to have an insight into their journey.

Delos mostly stays in the low latitudes so perhaps it is not an issue. But how to you heat the boat in cool weather without propane? Loving the series by the way. So many systems are similar between boats and RVs that these topics are applicable to us "land sailers" as well.
Sailing SV Delos
Sailing SV Delos - 1 year ago
Yeah, we've never had a heater onboard. I guess the AC can be run reverse cycle but that requires the generator so when we were in the southern lattitudes and the cape of good hope we just froze our asses off. If we do more high latitude sailing I would probably put in a proper heating system.

Can you comment on lightning prevention and protection? I have one of those dopey fuzzy lightning deterrents, but doubt it would really do anything. I am quite scared of getting hit by lightning at anchor or on passage. Sometimes we put cell phones (with our back up nav) and a handheld VHF in the microwave as protection. Would that really save them from a direct strike? I've also heard (sailor lore) that chain rhode is bad because it attracts lightning when anchored (but line wouldn't provide as good a ground). Comments on any of that?

As a back up to the main stove or for cooking on deck check out the "Air Fryers" on Amazon or any big

a regular oven. It would be comparable to a microwave in time and comparable to regular oven in taste.

S Smith
S Smith - 1 year ago
Great video and well done for showing it can be done effectively and increase comfort on board!

One good thing to know is that many domestic induction cooktops now have built-in power limit options to suit different home wiring setups, so that when using the cooktop you don't risk overloading your circuits at home. This is very useful on a boat as it provides additional protection from overloading the inverter.
Whether an induction cooktop has this feature can typically be found buried in the manual, but it's already common across the Miele & Siemens/Bosch induction ranges, to name a few.

What would be interested to know is whether a switch to induction from propane/LPG, with the obvious safety benefits, could potentially reduce insurance premiums?
Another question -- does the induction cooktop have any negative effect on the electronics onboard, such as interference?

.... your comment about heat from a gas stove .... always wondered why cruisers did not set up an outside cooking station to keep the heat out of the galley, cabin .... found this quite interesting and liked that you compared the convection to gas oven .... like the Idea of having a generator for backup ..... you have mentioned before about going electric before, which from limited reading think that this is the way to go. There are those out there that go solely electric, I would only do it if there was a backup generator that if in dire need would be your backup .... electric is right there, no messing getting an engine started .... great video .... have fun be safe, save our oceans .....

Do you have any issues with so many charging devices wired to the lithium batteries? I know its common to have same vendor solar and shore/gen power charges wired to the batteries (Victron MPPT and Multipurpose inverter), but do they play nice with the wind chargers? Seems the wind chargers would have to have to be programmed to the same charging algorithm as the Victron equipment. Otherwise, one charging voltage might interfere with the other?

We got induction in our house like 10 years ago. It took quite a while, with lots of burned food, to get used to it. It is just SO different and A LOT faster than anything else. But now I cant imagine going back to the old hotstove. We even have a propande-burner right next to it but the induction is so good we never use it. When (5 years from now) we buy a boat, we are SO going full electric. I love my induction-stove!

Hi. I met you at the Annapolis boat show. I am refitting a Hans Christian 38, and I am planning on putting in an induction cook top and convection microwave. This episode was very useful to me and has triggered some questions. Awhile ago, I purchased a 2000 watt Inverter/charger (still not used) and have been considering returning it and purchasing a 2500w one for the reasons you mentioned in this video. You however have a 3k inverter/charger. I do not have a generator and probably will not have one; the boat is smaller than yours and does not have the space available for one. Do have suggestions or thoughts for my situation? I always thought I would never use both the stove and the oven at the same time. That seemed to be the logical solution. Thoughts?

Take PVC pipe bigger than your hose and run your propane hose through it to prevent wear when boat rocks if you still use it since you use the electric stove.

If you have a multi zone induction hob then you can have multiple pots at full temp. More heat resistant with the multi zone ones

is the Inverter / Battery powerfull enough to run the watermaker without the generator?
RainCity84 - 1 year ago
@Dennis Patrick They still use the genset to add power in, its not fully replaced yet. That would take a lot more solar which would really start to get hard to place practically. Plus lose some redundancy of having 3 kinds of energy productions, solar, genset and wind. Especially for blue water world sailors, redundancy is really Important but not the same for a day sailor. I don't think we are quite there yet to really replace gensets, especially considering it just runs off the diesel that is always still needed for propulsion. I know there are a few experimental all electric boats but full EV isn't there yet. Hopefully in the next 20 years we'll be there.

Check the previous vlog from yesterday. I believe Brian and Brady pointed out that they use the generator to make water...The Vlog was all about their power on the boat. Batteries, wind, solar, generator.

I live in my RV and have been using a portable induction cooker for years. It's a 1800 watt unit but I almost never run it on high. I can boil water faster with the induction cooker than a gas burner and what's nice about it is when it's hot, I can just unplug it and take it outside to cook something and not heat up the inside of the RV.  I dry camp a lot and really enjoy cooking with the induction cooker knowing its all being powered from the sun.
It would be great if you showed more detail on the electric stove, maybe even a shot of the nomenclature ...Thanks.

Natural gas cook tops rock while propane cook tops and natural gas/propane ovens suck. I can't stand the smell of propane on a gas cook top and oven inside an enclosed area. Electric stoves suck whereas electric ovens rock (convection electric is even better). Induction cook tops are an awesome alternative for the cook top - they heat up and cool down fast. On a boat - I would dump the gas in a heart beat for an induction cook top. Electric convection oven is an easy "hell yes". I guess the whole issue on a boat is - do you / will you have the power to run it all and not turn your power grid into molten slag or worse! Great video Brian. I like the set up you have installed on Delos. Thanks!
Most interesting topic and one close to my heart. Cooking. Definitely going to investigate an electric oven. Haven't had much success with the gas oven - burnt at the back, raw at the front.

with the lifepo4 chemistry they put in, fire dangers are non issues. safer than standard lead acid. it is the other lipo chemistries that have big issues with thermal runaway...

Curious as to how much power your dive compressor and water maker use that you can only run them on generator power. Is it the surge power from the motor's that prevent using on batteries or the inverter capacity? If the oven's using 1300W you'd think you could run a motor capable of operating a compressor or water maker? I'm sure I've missed something in my thinking :)
Mark Davis
Mark Davis - 1 year ago
I don't know what dive compressor Delos has, but they pretty typically draw around 15-20 amps at 220-240v and it takes probably around 40-60 amps to start it off. Given their 3k inverter produces around 13 amps at the 220 volts it wouldn't be enough to start or run the compressor. Even if they had the inverter power to start and run the motor, it takes 20ish minutes to fill a scuba tank from one of these smaller compressors. So it would drain the batteries too much to be worth it.

Water maker is more reasonable to run on the batteries as they typically draw < 10 amps running, but it wouldn't be a good use of the batteries likely which is more probably why they just run the generator. It can take quite a bit of time to fill the water tank(s) so it could easily draw the batteries too low to be worth it.

The point about not getting the boat heated is a really good one, never thought about that. I remember being a bit sceptical about the induction system, glad to hear it's been working well!

The oven doesn't use induction does it? I'd figure it's just heating elements, probably top and bottom - bake/broil.
Joe Cat
Joe Cat - 1 year ago
@Roger Stone This is a case of using a word to name something that is incorrect sorta like calling a facial tissue a Kleenex. I have a small oven that is both a conventional & convection oven. It has heating elements on the top and bottom and a fan that runs when set to. They're using the word convection to describe any oven that circulates the air inside with a fan to even out the heat thru out the inside of the oven. You are correct about the England and US, we both speak English but very different words are used for naming things, boot-trunk, spanner-wrench and so on.
Roger Stone
Roger Stone - 1 year ago
@Joe Cat Maybe it's a difference between English and American naming, but a convection oven here has heating elements in the walls and the whole oven gets hot. Convection means the hottest air rises so the top part of the inside will be hotter than lower down. That's the traditional oven. A fan oven doesn't have heating elements in the side walls, it has an element behind the rear wall and a fan which drives the heated air out into the main cooking part of the oven. The air is being moved around by the fan, NOT by convection.
Richard Gleason

Joe Cat fan oven seems to be a term used in Britain but is essentially the same as convection. A fan moving the air in the oven or convecting thus preventing hot/cold spots. Result....lower cooking temp and or shorter cooking time.

The Gosun grill takes about two hours to cook, but it doesn't need propen, electricity or wood. Just the Sun light. Excellent for backup.

@Joe Cat, Well, interestingly you can use a "dutch oven" to bake things. And one of those would work on an induction stove. But I do know what you mean.

And as to Delos' reply, I once had, and now have, a convection oven so I'm familiar with them. However, it did not occur to me that you might have a convection oven on Delos. But it make complete sense.
Tree L. Bolling
Tree L. Bolling - 1 year ago
@Roger Stone a convection oven has a fan to blow the air around in the oven. What you are calling a "fan" oven is what's known as a convection oven.
Joe Cat
Joe Cat - 1 year ago
induction uses electromagnetic field to make the pot or pan get hot & cook your food, that doesn't work for baking.
Joe Cat

@Roger Stone what's the difference a convection oven has a fan to circulate the air inside. Never heard of a fan oven.
Roger Stone
Roger Stone - 1 year ago
@Gary Davis Fan oven, I would have thought, would be better - because in a convection oven the top of the oven will be hotter than lower down; whereas with a fan the heat is pretty evenly distributed. Gives you more control.
Gary Davis
Gary Davis - 1 year ago
@Sailing SV Delos Electric convection oven is the way to go. Been using one for ~12 years now. We find it cooks faster with lower heat. Our rule of thumb is 75% of the temp and 75% of the time you use for normal oven.
Sailing SV Delos
Sailing SV Delos - 1 year ago
Right, just convection with is basically hot air blown around by a fan :)

You mentioned having a failure of the gas solenoid in the past. Obviously not a problem for you now you cook electric, but for your readers still on gas I asked my gas man what to do if the solenoid stops working. The instructions from the gas man are

remove nut from solenoid coil

remove coil from valve stem

undue the Stainless steel nut / assembly/ stem

when apart remove the plunger pad and spring

re-fit the stainless nut assembly/tube/stem

The solenoid will now have free flow without power.

Hopefully this will never be necessary
Janne Peltonen
Janne Peltonen - 1 year ago
That's why there's a gas sensor / alarm installed somewhere down in the boat. Saved my boat at least once (after having installed a new cooker and the connection between the pipe and the cooker got loose in high seas while cooking). Also, you can just simply suffocate if there's enough gas floating at the bottom of the boat while you're asleep...

We just have two mechanical valves in our very simple propane system, one at the tank connector and one in the pentry cupboard near the stove. The one in the pentry is closed whenever the stove is not in use; the one at the tank is closed whenever we leave the boat for a longer period.
Sailing SV Delos
Sailing SV Delos - 1 year ago
Good to know, but since propane is heavier than air it tends to settle in bilges. I have heard some horror stories of boat decks being blown off so I always wanted to make sure the solenoid was closed off....
