Electric range recommendations?

Hi! I'm looking to install an electric oven and induction cooktop. I don't mind if it's a range, or if it's a cooktop and a separate oven. Please let me know if you have recommendations! Thank you!

How will you run it? Shore power all the time? Big battery bank?

Unless you plan on having a 100amp service power pole (most rv parks have 30a or 50a), you'll want to consider propane, diesel, wood, etc. for any heating appliances.

Most homes have 150-200 amp service to power large consumption appliances such as hvac, range/cooktop, water heating, clothes dryers.

An induction cooktop is, definitely, something you can do with a decent sized solar system. They are pretty efficient at heating quickly, so the (maybe substantial) power draw is fairly short in duration. But an electric oven is a whole 'nother animal. Keeping an oven hot for an hour or two just isn't within the capabilities of most solar/battery systems.

I'm presuming you'll be using this in places other than with shore power. If you only plan to use it with shore power, then carry on...

I have 2 induction cooktops and a microwave/induction oven. All of that will run on 110V. They are all on separate circuits. You can get double burner induction cooktops but if you use both at the same time power is reduced to each burner.
In order to conserve power when running on the inverter only one of the cooktops is on an inverter curcuit.

That's great to hear! Where did you find your cooktops and oven?
