In my 28' CCD I carried:
Hot Water Pot -- used daily with a Polycarbonate French Press
Toaster -- used infrequently
Hand Mixer that came in a storage box -- used twice in two years

In my Westy I only carry the Polycarbonate French Press.
I heat the water in a pot on the stove.

I do not like my cupboards and pantry to be cluttered with a bunch of specialized machines at home so I am even more spare on the road.

We are planning a GA to WA trip this summer and I am considering eliminating my sauce pot since my vertical sided lidded fry pan could do double duty as a sauce pan. That would leave me with a sauce pan w/lid, omelet pan and fry pan w/lid.

I am pretty OCD about my cupboards and storage.

Interesting thread.

The ONLY electric appliance I take is a toaster, which is nice for bagels and for toast, if there's shore power (also have a stove-top one for boondocking).

Usually take along a Coleman propane 2 burner stove for outside cooking and a small Weber propane grill ... and have the usual small slillets, pots and pans and bakeware and a Thermos Thermal Cooker, which I love for soups, stews, etc.

Have been thinking about getting a new and smaller than at-home pressure cooker. They are terrific for roasts also. It can cook a pot roast and a bunch of vegetables (potatoes, onions, carrots, green beans) in a little over a half hour, start to finish. But even a small one is nearly the size of my Thermal Cooker.

We don't bring ours for short trips, but when camping in one spot for a few days, it's great to not have to run to the store for ice. In warm weather, the ice maker gets a workout.

Everything. Roasts, soups, veggies, desserts, etc. They're very efficient and the food is great.

We boondock 90% of the time. When we restored/renovated our Safari we removed the oven (It was very rusty and shot) added another cupboard in it's place. Installed a new stainless 3 burner top. No electric appliances for cooking. TV & Sat. run from batteries most of the time. Stainless wine glasses a must.

Stuff

We keep our Viking induction burner in the trailer! It works out great when we have shore power. It's very responsive.

We also have a 3.7 quart Kuhn Rikon Duramatic pressure cooker. It's small enough to fit some place in the trailer, and we just bought a Bodum electric hot water pot. Gemma got it in orange to match the interior of our groovy 1974 Tradewind's interior.

Murray likes to travel with a full contingent of AllClad pots and pans and it is a constant battle convincing him not to pack the #12 cast iron skillet.

Pressure cooker? Never used one. I will check it out. Only remember my Mom using one as a kid. I might be missing something!

These have been mentioned twice now. Do you find that wine tastes different out of stainless glasses? Do you drink reds as well as whites out of them?

I'm thinking it might be time to upgrade from our disposable plastic #5 solo cups that we wash and reuse for wine.

Taste difference, no
Reds or whites, yes
They effect a well pulled together ensemble
when accompanied by an Airstream....

I have a similar Ibis Bodum hot water pot that I use at home with a stainless Bodum coffee press. Mine is lime green, larger and oval. I love your Bistro It is smaller. I had a Hazard Orange CCD that it would have looked great in.

Most of my traveling has been done on motorcycle without any kitchen appliances along and none missed. I'll take a coffee pot that I can use on a gas stove if I have room. If I don't have room, I'll get by fine just like I have in the past.
