Really good knives. Stick blender with attachments to be a mini-food processor. Best SS percolator I could find (camping store). Vacuum sealer from Foodsaver. Kuhn-Rikon 5l pressure cooker. 4x8 non-stick metal loaf pans. Electric kettle for when I'm plugged in.
I have a microwave but very rarely use it. I don't think I've ever used my spring pan.
lots of garlic, gooood knives--slicer, french, filet and parer, and a pressure cooker---i use a presto--a wok and some chopstix....extra virgin olive oil..bay leaves and italian spices and .nutmeg and vanilla and cinnamon and sea salt...worcestershire sauce,,,,,,,,my coffee pot is a cone drip thing for one cup....so a good water boiling device---powdcered whole milk for coffee and chocolate syrup for coffee.....and a lid for the wok....one sauce pan with a lid....and a egg flipper/burger turner .....an oven and bread pans and biscuit and cookie sheets...
I have tried this - and it's pretty good, though I'm pretty sensitive to the taste of milk and I can tell a difference with it. It's just that sometimes in the Bahamas, it would be nice to have a powdered milk that you can make up every few days that actually tastes good.
I'm on Fairport Harbor, Ohio now, but we're leaving Sept 3 to spend the winter at Georgetown Bahamas - so preparing for that. I'm sure that I will get use to whatever we have work out - just thought that I'd try it at home first before leaving. Phil and I like milk to drink and use in food - and looking ahead.
One of the reasons we're staying in one place is that I'll be going to school full time to get my BSN - which would be challenging moving from place to place as I need an internet connection. I have 3 weeks off around Christmas, so wouldn't be surprised if we explore then. Phil has been in Georgetown a couple time for 3-4 months - We'll see what happens once we get my house sold or rented and actually get on the road so to speak.
Be glad when I get a boat so I can comment on some of these discussions more sincerely... For now I use a piece of velcro strap to hold a ditty bag which holds dogs water bowl, and my non-water-tight lunch box. Never had time to eat though - Mouth usually full of sheets.
As most have said, good knifes, Fry Pan, Cooking Pot for Pasta etc., 9 x 12 cake pans for casseroles etc. -- I have as many spices as I have at home, if not more. We have 2 percolator's for when were underway, cruising etc. Also have a coffee maker for when were in port with shore power. It's one that brews into a thermos keeps the coffee hot for several hours and doesn't have a pot that will break easly. We use our stove and range a lot.
