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.

Out for a month, cooked many meals on board, Coffee,Tea each morning. Bought 4 gallons of Alcohol for the season, used only 2 gallons. We were aboard at least 50 days over the summer. Have not tried the oven yet....

That sounds like a good (low) usage rate. I wondered how much alcohol should be carried on a cruise since it's not available everywhere. I noticed too that if I haven't used the stove in a while, it lights up with a tall blue flame which indicates there is not much loss from evaporation while idle for a long period of time.

We safely carry a whole season (7mos) of cooking fuel/alcohol with us, in the space a little larger than a case of beer. It's important to have a good way to seal when not in use. We use a round silicone gasket, the heat doesn't effect them, so you can cover the burner while hot.

Just sailed back down to the Chesapeake from Maine and discovered that CNG appears to have disappeared down here. The usual places for exchange in Annapolis, Rock Hall and Galesville no longer have it. So it may be time to bite the bullet. Many folks seem quite happy with the Origo which would clearly be the simplest. One question -- how much odor is there? I often use a kind of toaster device over the flame. And I'd prefer my bagel without alcohol. Or at least without the kind you burn.

I haven't noticed an odor, or at least any that would be annoying. Its been a few years since toasting over the open flame, but didn't notice any affect on taste.

If the reservoir is very low on alcohol, the flame starts to burn yellow; that might behave differently. It's important to only fill the puck when cold, so I try to use one burner at a time, but if two are needed, both get a cup of fuel.
