Installed new Origo stove, removed old CNG System. Was cooking on a Butane cook top for a while, but NG underway. A friend who sails a Morgan 323 recommended it, he has one and is very happy with it. I also read a lot of positive posts. Lit it off yesterday for the first time, seemed like a pretty hot flame. I had an older style Origo Alcohol/Electric on a 2002 boat, it was terrible, about 20 minutes to boil a tea kettle. This seems much better !

The same unit came on Lunacy, but cosmetically it shows its age. Still works great though. I offered to put in whatever system the Galley Goddess desired, but she prefers the Origo as there is no concern about possible propane accidents.

The Origo was rated as one of 3 best by Practical Sailor in one of their reviews a while back and the burners are rated at 6,000 btu whereas many propane units are 4,000 btu. We have no complaints about how quickly the percolator makes a strong pot of coffee.

However, she did complained about how long it took to bake a lasagna once. I tried to explain that opening the door every 10 minutes to see if it's browning will lengthen cooking time.

Good one, a watched pot never boils. Lasagna sounds pretty ambitious, even in a regular oven it takes awhile. I give your Gally Goddess credit !

We use a Origo 2000 sitting on top of the CNG over. We can still get CNG easily. So we start the winter cruise with two CNG tanks and four gallons of alcohol. The Origo is great, use the CNG to bake.

We are paying $80.00 for a tank of CNG, only place on Long Island NY is Brewers in Greenport. Friend says he picks it up on ski trips while driving through Conneticut to save $$!. Anyway I submitted 2014 survey with CNG stove flagged, Boat US ins, they would not insure. Have been actually using butane cook top, works great, $30.00 fuel lasts about teo seasons. Wanted to do more offshore work, wanted gimbled stove, without worrying about propane. Old CNG stove rattled like crazy and oven door hinge was broken.Friend has the Origo 3000 and is happy with it.
