Hi,

I've noticed in a couple of camping stores, a particular model of Gas Stove that has a griller underneath.

Just wondering if anyone has tried this type of stove and if they find the griller ok.

The main use I am interested in it is for toasting bread at the same time using the burners for cooking.

Thanks
Phil P

Phil,

I use one in my camper trailer. Great for toasting 2 at a time. Grills meat, fish, etc. Great unit, but I couldn't tell you the brand cause it came supplied with the camper. (Track desert eagle camper)

Regards.

This approach has been around forever on boats and they work great.

Phil, we have a Gas Mate 2 burner stove with griller. After using the "old fashioned" toaster devices, my wife insisted on the griller, mainly for toasting. It dosn't perform any better than the old way as the heat does not spread very far across the "heat dispersing grid". Given the extra cost, I would not recommend them if toasting is the main purpose.Be good, or be quick.

Tried various toasters on gas stoves, finally found the Dixon toaster at a boating shop. Stainless steel with a stainless steel mantle, makes 2 slices of perfect toast in less than half the time of an electric toaster. On cold mornings we even use it to heat the campervan. Only drawback was the price aprox. $35.00 but it still is one of the best purchases we have made considering the use we get out of it.

Hi Michael,

Interesting looking toaster !

http://www.nzmarine.com/dixon.html

Does it requires any form of maintenance (there is mention of a mantel) ?

Was the boating shop in Melbourne ?

Thanks

No maintenance at all.

Perhaps mantle is not an accurate discription. The very fine stainless steel mesh acts like a mantle as in the old gas lights, except that this one is rigid and glows red when heated, to do the toasting.

I found mine at Bias Boating http://www.biasboating.com.au/
It is also available from Whitworth's www.whitworths.com.au

The problem is always that you can't try these things in the shop. I bought a fairly cheap version from Aussie disposals. Can't really toast with it..... so can't grill or anything. Cheers RoyceRoyce www.funshow.com.au
