Dometic Propane stove top.

Is anyone happy with the Dometic three burner stove top? This is the new top that has wire racks for each burner. Our signature 27 had the full porcelain grate.

The problem I have is that the pots will slide off the burners! Ok, yes we are level, but try to boil a large pot of water for pasta and as the rolling bubbles develop, the pot starts moving off the burner. Fortunately, it always seems to move toward the back. It's to the point that it may be dangerous if you don't watch. Frying pans are already too large for the burners, but give them a bump and they get off balance and tip.

Has anyone found a solution for this? I have purposely put a frying pan or two next to the pot to "wedge" it so it won't move. It is getting a bit ridiculous. I'm ready to add some steel weights to the top of the cooktop to add more support for the pans.

We use a portable induction cooktop for most things resting on the closed lid of the propane stone. These cost less than $100 but you might need to upgrade your inverter if you arenít plugged in. Boils water twice as fast, simmers well, a breeze to clean.

We have an induction cooktop also. Your right, it will boil water very fast. It still does not solve the stove issue as we sometimes have 2 or three pots going at a time.

Did Dometic even test this thing??

Now I see. We were thinking of switching TO that cooktop from the one with the heavier grates and metal hood because of the flat top and auto ignition. Maybe not!

We’ve also thought about getting a double induction cooktop.

I use my All-Clad cookware (skillets and pots raided from our B&S kitchen) on the Dometic CU434 range in our GT. I have not had an issue with the stovetop using this cookware. In fact, I find that my 12Ē All-Clad skillet works great on the front burner. The long All-Clad handles are not an issue for me either. I also use a small cast-iron griddle on the front burner. Perhaps because my cookware has heavier bottoms I am not experiencing the issues you describe with the cooktop?

I use the stovetop and oven most every day as we travel full-time in our Globetrotter. If Iím not using the stovetop, then I am using my 3 QT mini InstantPot. BTW - I always cook inside - by choice as I find the range hood sufficient for venting moisture outside the coach.

Dometic Propane stove top.

We like our dometic CU-434 just fine. We donít have issues with things sliding off.

We also use a little electric kettle for quick boiling of small quantities of water for tea, soup, etc...

It looks like you have a 5 gallon pot on that little stove - do you often cook spaghetti for 20 people? I can see why a pot that big could cause some problems with the weight of all that water.
