For those adventurous mariners who work for a living, perhaps on a less than satisfying hourly wage, there will always be dreams. The daydreams conjure up images of large cabin cruisers and luxury yachts. A pin pops the dream bubble, then the boat owner is dropped unceremoniously back onboard an overly confined space. Cooking up a midnight meal, a high-performing, safe to operate Origo Mobile Alcohol-Powered Stove stands nearby.

Origo Alcohol Stoves: Ideal for Small Cabin Spaces

Back at home, there’s room to think. A homeowner can afford to think about large ovens and multiple pot burners. For their part, boat owners know that a luxury yacht isn’t an option, so they get back to the business of outfitting their craft with a first-rate stove. Measuring the largest open spaces, which are little more than cabin slots, the small dimensions are noted. There’s maybe enough space for a popular branded oven, with its non-pressurized burner ensuring a safe cooking area, even when the boat yaws to one side.

Hampered By Confined Cooking Spaces

Worse than any other complaint, there’s simply nowhere to stand when cooking on a smaller boat. No doubt, the ship is the apple of the owners’ eye. It’s cleaned every weekend and taken out onto the open waters at least a month, but it’s just not the best place to cook up a square meal. Without wishing to compromise, a food-loving mariner can purchase a Mobile Origo Alcohol Stove, which is designed to slot easily into the tightest spaces. Working at close quarters, there’s a non-pressurized fluid providing the stove heat. Okay, back to that test scenario, the one that began with a measuring tape and a notebook. Having recorded a 24 cm slot width, a single-burner Origo 1500 slides into that niche. If the cooking area was 45 cm wide, a two-burner model, an Origo 3000, could have popped easily into the gap. Never mind, the single-burner appliance provides 2 kW of cooking power, and it’s an entirely safe cooking experience, too.

We suggest sticking with the single-burner unit when installing a mobile alcohol stove in a small cabin. The Origo 2000 is another single-burner option, but it’s a little wider as well. After the space available passes the 45 cm mark, a boat owner can switch up to a model that incorporates two-burner versatility. The Origo 4100, for instance, works well when a medium-sized boat cabin has 63 cm of space to spare. As for height and depth, most of these appliances top out at 15 cm and they’re typically around 30 cm deep. Do try to keep these dimensions in mind when installing a non-pressurized cooking unit.
