While space is tight, with some creative planning, we are able to prepare our meals from scratch (no frozen/boxed/canned meals) including baking bread.
We want to start a thread about cooking in the modern Globetrotter galley using the Dometic CU434 range and the challenges of small space cooking. We use the oven daily. Our 3 quart Instant Pot gets a workout as well. (NOTE: As a personal preference, we removed the microwave oven for more pantry space. We never use/cook with a microwave, even when we were in our S&B home. Jackson Center made us a drawer pullout for this space similar to the other pantry pullout.)
Our next modification is to remove the sofa and have JC make a cabinet similar to the photo below. Our desire is to create additional space in the galley for storage and food prep.
Are there others out there who use their galley this way? If so, what modifications have you made, and how do you use your galley for meal preparation and cooking? What sorts of things do you cook from scratch?
Our 2008 Safari FB just went through a remodel where we shortened the sofa and added a cabinet much like you describe. There just wasn’t enough counter space to cook if you had a coffee maker and paper towel holder by the sink. We love our kitchen now and enjoy the extra room. I’ll try to remember to post pictures of what we cook for a later post. [ATTACH]332951[ATTACH]332952[ATTACH]332953
