How do you make toast on yer boat without a toaster?

Space is limited, so don't really want to buy a travel toaster, esp. as we wouldn't eat toast all the time. Is there a special gadget thing we could make that can make use of the stove?

Not the most exciting of posts I admit!! ....

this goes on a burner. works best with an open flame, like a coleman stove or butane cooker.

Limited space & a single function device, so I tried to avoid an electric toaster too. I picked up one of the camp toasters and while it worked well on my coleman camp stove in the woods, it was a failure on the boat. I tried it on my Magma Kettle2 and on the electric burner of the range in the boat. It took way too long and then burned the edges long before the bread toasted. I gave in & picked up a cheap toaster (they work great on an inverter, shore power or generator.

We REALLY like good toast. It isn't. On the hook, you don't have much choice with out a genny or inverter.
I finally agreed to the extra space and bought a $7 Walmart toaster.
It's worth the space, and we use it every trip.

My wife and I used a toaster like this at camp, It burns up a lot of fuel and takes a long time. By then your eggs are cold, your coffee is cold, and your toast is cold. I'd get the toaster or stick the bread on a fork and hold over flame. "mmmm! Pass the marmalade"!

Isn't owning a boat always an ongoing restoration?

Our BBQ works very well for toast, it also keeps the bacon warm in the tin foil after fryin to make room for the eggs on one burner and the coffee pot on the other. Best meal of the day:)

All good suggestions w/ exception of the stove top unit.... I have not had great luck with them either.

I have a generator and low wattage toaster on board...... and more often than not, I too make toast in a frying pan. I cook my breakfast first.... then on medium heat, butter in pan, place the bread in the pan, toast one side (takes just a minute or less), flip over on a little more butter (who's counting calories out there?) and Wella! ......... Makes great toast every time.

It's like Coffee..... while not always as good as Starbuck's coffee, it tastes great when on the boat........
Ahhhhhh!

We get around the issue this way. We make "toad in the holes".

Butter both sides of the bread. Cut a 2 inch dia hole out of the center of the bread.
Place the bread in a hot frying pan and crack a egg in the center. Fry for a minute and flip over.

You end up with a wonderful fried egg and toast.

We get all the bacon done in the pan first.

My "campfire toaster" rusted out before I was able to enjoy it so I got a very cool chrome jukebox-shaped toaster oven at Walmart. Does everything (except work on the hook 'cause my inverter is underpowered) and fits nicely on the cutting board over the elements. And with shore power it even bakes chicken if I don't feel ike the bbq ...

If you have a oven then toast it there. Just put the bread on the racks and turn on the oven. Try it at home. Turn on the oven put in a couple of slices bread and toast them. Turn the oven to high and check often.

The grill does a fine job with toast, just have to move/turn it frequently.

I have made hundreds of peices of toast on a folded coat hanger in motels on a hot plate over the years, and still do on the boat. Just fold a wire hanger in half leaving about an inch and a half space between the wires. It works with electric, propane, charcol, or whatever.

We use this setup on our boat.
Butane portable stove;

and a stainless steel compact toaster. Handle folds over, rear side pushes in and it collapses on itself. It will then fit in your jeans pocket:) . So you could even carry it to a party, borrow a lighter and cook some yummy toast on the spot - watch the crowd gather;)

Which side goes toward the flame? Does it work? Where do you get them?

Hello Bill

We got ours from here....(I'm in Australia);

http://whitworths.com.au/main_itemdetail.asp?item=39669&search123=toaster&intAbsolutePage=1

Only $10 (listed as $19 though?).

The base is a fine s/s wire mesh which sits on the flame. The mesh distributes the heat more evenly and toasts one side (underside of bread) at a time (about 15-20 seconds).

jf185br - great show.....but not a cryptic one.

I am going to see if I can find one in the states. Now that I understand how it works it sounds like a great toaster. I have been having a lot of problems trying to buy items out of country. The way my luck runs I wouldnt have it by boating season if I ordered today. I this product made in Austrailia?

Thanks
Bill

If no luck finding it in the states, make contact with;

http://www.whitworths.com.au/customer_service.asp?pg=109&ID=147

as they ship overseas. Should have no problem as they are one of the biggest marine companies in Australia.

FYI - The toaster is made in china (like most of this stuff) and packaged as one of their products - Whitworths.

You want to make toast withouit a toaster? And you already have the 1lb propane cylinders on board?

This one's a no-brainer- just get a $12 torch head. You can toast bread with a torch very easily, quickly- and the torch will be invaluable for other repairs, etc.

This is the cooking forum, so I'll add that you'll find a propane torch in nearly every professional kitchen, it is used for everything from browning the tips of meringue and caramelizing creme brulee to blackening peppers and flambeing baked alaskas. $30 at home depot gets you a nice Benz-O-Matic with piezo pushbutton ignition.

It's not only the fastest toaster you've ever used, you'll get instant bonus style point for pulling THAT out to toast bread, or make some bruschetta.
