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.
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 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.

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.

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.
