Aromatic chicken or juicy steak after a busy day of sailing is what a real yachtsman needs! Interparus will tell you about four models of grill plates!
The cockpit grill plate is actually a very interesting thing. While it is not on board, you do not even think about the need for such a device. But once you install it and taste well-fried meat with vegetables, you will not understand how you lived without it before.
The advantage of such stoves is relative mobility compared to stationary stoves in the galley and ease of use. In addition, many yachtsmen unexpectedly discover a whole wonderful world of cooking, which was previously limited to simple dishes...
Gas grill Magma Original Marine Kettle
The modern standard for round grills and stoves! With a weight of just over 3 kg and a diameter of about 40 centimeters, the Magma grill can become a truly indispensable item on any cruise. The stove is ideal for small yachts, where every square centimeter of space is worth its weight in gold.
The lid has a special mechanism that will prevent accidental closure due to a gust of wind. The Magma grill runs on propane from an external cylinder. However, the stove can also be connected to the on-board gas system.
Advantages: small dimensions (40x40x15 cm); convenient cover that can be used as a windbreak; several connection options.
Disadvantages: 18/8 stainless steel (slightly less durable than its more expensive counterparts); holds less food than a rectangular cooker.
Cuisinart Petit Gourmet Portable Cooker
A portable grill stove is an ideal choice for those who do not want to bother with installing the stove on additional mounts. If you have at least a small table in the cockpit, then the Cuisinart Petit Gourmet is a great choice!

The Cuisinart Petit Gourmet runs on a propane tank, but can be connected to the boat's gas system using an adapter, which will have to be purchased separately.

Disadvantages: additional fasteners will have to be purchased; The size of the stove is small, but enough for a hearty dinner for two.

Advantages: durable construction made of reliable stainless steel; hinged lid with fixation; thermometer on the lid; wind protection
Disadvantages: price; Not all mounting options (brackets) are universal.
