2011 Int'l - No Microwave Oven.

So far, I love it. However, I didn't realize it, but the convection oven isn't in it. No microwave!!! What are some of you Interstate owners doing for microwave and for coffee makers?

I got a Tassimo TASSIMO Home Brewing System for a present and it makes a great cup of coffee! I also use a stove top Italian coffee pot. It's also very good. As for the micro I don't use one or need one while I'm camping. Nice looking rig you got there!

congrats on the new stream...

same info, different thread, useful either place.
________

many folks have installed micros' in newer units,

here's a couple of threads with photos and user insight...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f283...ave-19555.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f426...5-a-44736.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f426...not-47697.html

lots of others with personalized approaches and nice pix...
_______

if PLUGGED into adequate electricity any electric coffee thing can work...

but realize that the 30 amp system has some limitations,

for example trying to use the water heater, a microwave and a typical 1500 watt coffee maker (with the fridge on electric)

will probably TRIP a breaker.
_______

learning how to best use the gas/lp systems for cooking, boiling water and so on is important.

cheers

If you're into the mad-scientist look, you could use what I use for one of my coffee-making devices, a vacuum pot. It's a stovetop method, fairly quick, very simple in its operation. Here's the one I have:
YAMA 8 Cup Vacuum Pot Coffee Brewer - Coffee Siphon from Espresso Parts

It proved very useful when our power was out for 2 days last winter!

Those make great coffee. My mother had two of them - in Stainless Steel - which might make more sense for a trailer or van.

I agree that stainless (or another metal) would make a better fit for a TT but as far as I know the metal ones are all vintage and the sellers are VERY proud of complete, working ones. The last time I looked for metal ones was a few years ago when I bought my Yama, but I haven't heard of anyone stating to manufacture metal ones again.

Before we had the roof locker modified for a microwave, we used to just set one on the stove cover for use. It would travel on the bed with some pillows strategically placed around it. For coffee, I use this almost every day. I make it directly into my thermos/nissan 14 oz coffee cup. I use an electric tea kettle to heat the water.

We have had our Interstate 3 1/2 years and have used our microwave about a dozen times. We use it primarily for storage and could very easily do without it.

Your basic coffemaker works fine whenever plugged into electric, a stove top percolator is the choice for boondocking.

Airstream sent out a survey earlier this year to current Interstate owners, regarding the amenities and usage/preference. Perhaps they listened to their users.

We got the convection microwave and my wife absolutly loves it.

I bring along a grind and brew coffee maker. Kinda large but I gotta have my Dunkin Donuts coffee<whole bean> freshly ground and brewed.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

We took a little bit different approach for Lucy's microwave. We needed to accommodate both a microwave and a printer. We never used the end of our couch area for anything except piling up junk. SuEllyn designed and built our microwave/printer cabinet. It also provides us with our packing area for Moose Tags. The cabinet has been in use for over 2 years now, and it still works great for us.

I'm looking for a trade. I've never used our convection/microwave. Let me know if interested in discussing.
