With you there.
My Atwood has 9K btus front, 6K btus on the back 2. And vent fans take care of the heat.
However, if I put away enough $ to get induction units, DW will tell me to not mess with her counter space, and will spend it on something she REALLY wants.

Yep, DW has two sets of T-fal Professional(their only induction approved) cookware to go with her two NuWave induction hot plates. Much lighter than her old set of Wagner cast-iron ware. I still haul around my Wagner cast-iron dutch oven though.

I'm pulling my propane cooktop out and replacing it with the True Induction inset model. The ONLY thing that runs on propane in my coach is the two burner cooktop. This will make me All Electric and free up a huge bay that has the propane tank in it. The future of larger RV's will be all electric.

I installed the Tru Induction top in my Entegra and threw away the brand new Burton conductive top. We like Induction in the RV and also have a Bosch top at home. We have all the pots we need. Le Creuset brand and anything cast iron work great.

I carry around a single burner Burton Induction top I bought on Amazon and use it for all my "dirty and stinky" cooking. When I'm going to cook bacon or fry chicken I take the burner outside and turn it on. Contrary to what you said, it gets hot real fast. I can boil a pot of water in 3-4 minutes. I like the portability and use it inside and outside. I still have my trusty Coleman propane stove but the portable Induction plate is fast and easy.

Induction cooktops?

I have a single burner portable. I use it when I have power so I can save propane. I find that it is fast at heating and boiling, with no gas fumes to worry about.

My 2008 Country Coach Allure has the synthetic, marble panels over the sink and 3-burner Atwood. With those down, I had enough counter space. Take either away, not enough. I wanted to cook and keep the cabinet top. An induction is the answer

After removing the Atwood, the resulting depth is perfect for the height of my chef's grade induction. I left the large propane line in the cavity, attached an easy-to-reach 1/4 turn valve, an appropriate fittings. I found an RV, small, drop in 2-burner and built a vented metal case around it. This is necessary because all the potable propane cooktops are not designed for and may become unsafe using the low pressure 11" W.C.coming from our regulted main tank. The little 2-burner propane stows in a pull out tray beneath the cooktop cavity. It's intended uses are cooking when my battery bank is too low, if I need a second surface heater, or back up if my induction is being used outside or is still stowed in the Toad Jeep from the weekends camp out.

Regarding use, I applied my Kill-a-Watt 120VAC meter (any big box store). Just as it told/tells me exactly how much inverted 120VAC Amps are necessary for my new residential refrigerator when boonbocking, the meter will show just how few Watts this 1,800W beast needs. Its cook times are so small that it's a toss up with using the microwave off inverted 120VAC power. Now, to do this with little worry, at least a medium site AGM bank with reasonable solar are required. But if you are think of cooking electrically boonbocking and using a RR, you're already justifying electrical storage and production upgrades.

small (tiny) homes 800-900 Sq Ft.

The question about new stove tops (elec) I was just killing on u-tube and ran across a web site for sm homes. When the builder got to the kitchen he said a study found that only 3 burners of a stove are ever used. So in stead of having a stove he used 3 (if he needs it) but all three are kept in a drawer and pulls out only whet he needs for cooking and plugs them in. Wish I could give you the web site but I can't just playing on the net and found it.

Thanks.

Thinking of doing that with the Magna as all it has is a two burner cooktop, but it only has a 5.5 gal propane tank and it won't gain any usable storage space to remove it. We have a natural gas stove at home and my wife had that in MN too. Not sure if it would do us much good. Powering it would be no problem either. Will have to see after the upcoming trip to Phoenix I guess.

Just got email from the Kenyon folks. The gentleman that emailed me said that they are coming out with a 2 burner model that will work on a 120volt. Will retail for about $995.00. Hope this helps.

That's a LOT more expensive than the True Induction 2-burner model!

There are now RV's that come with Induction cooktops.

I have a single Induction burner (BIg Boss) looks to do everything the Nu-Wave does.. It came with a flexible magnet (Refrigrator magnet type magned) and instructions to apply to bottom of pan.. If it falls off put pan back on shelf and do not use.. If it sticks. Should be OK.

Works tooThough it is a bit underpowered for my big dutch oven Still works for most cooking with it. I know my fry pan when I went to make a burger was hot dang near before I could say WOW and the top of the unit stayed rather cool to the touch.
