Re: 220 volt microwave replacement in SM


Hi Michael,


Wauw that is great.

I was in NE  from Cairns and did a 10 day liveaboard some years ago with Mike Ball . Fantastic

Also was down near near Townsville diving on the SS Malongo.  Super dive with all that the GB reef offers in one dive


Anyway enjoy

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Eric   we have a portable induction plate   sometimes we used it out in the cockpit. It just sits on the bench top or the gas top.

Hi Michael, 

That sounds really nice. I assume you have the Original two gas burner ? 

Do you have some photos of the installation of the combi oven and the induction on top?

We replaced the gas oven with the 

Whirlpool jt479 

I removed the gas oven from under the the gas burners, I know it sounds complicated but it was simple, still having gas hobs with the electric oven works well. It is gimbaled using the existing system. Can use a induction hob on top if required. 

This oven does everything really well. 

It won't fit in the existing space for the old aeg microwave, grill. 

We now have the extra space.

This is very interesting- we have never used our microwave (not once) and the combi electric oven/toaster is a really good thought.

Hi Nick


Absolutely right and thanks for the food for thought…


We checked dozens of products/possibilities for a fan oven/grill but the MW-space for those units is just too small, because of extra air space needed re heat dispersion.

The Dishwasher compartment could be an option on the length, but still need space on both side and maybe also too small. Need to check.


Thanks and best regards

Maybe it is a generational thing but we hardly ever use the microwave. I sometimes use the grill function but if I had an electric fan oven/grill then for sure we would use it. 


We could be in the market for a replacement.


What about heat dispersion? I guess one does not want to install a unit that just fits.


Does anyone know the size of the compartment on the 54?


On the subject of unused equipment; we never use the dishwasher….waste of valuable galley real estate IMHO. Maybe get rid of the dishwasher and install  a good combi oven, then use the microwave space as a custom plate rack… for thought...


All the best

We replaced ours with a confection toaster oven. I can count on one hand how often we used the microwave. Now we have a vastly expanded menu thanks this.

I’m looking to purchase a new 220 volt microwave that fits in our SM microwave cabinet (approx 23”x13.5”x15”). Has anyone replaced theirs here in the USA and if so which model fits in the space without too much customization?
