Boat Life – choosing the MDOG50LW


Anyone following the Boat Life campaign will already be aware of Julian & Heidi & their current barge conversion project. Initially, we discussed lots of different ways in which we could get involved with them, before deciding on one particular appliance which would suit their very special set of requirements – the MDOG50LW 50cm Double Gas Cooker in White.

Sustainable Living

With sustainability a high priority for this couple, an appliance with an A rating would suit them well. This model is rated A/A+, so they can save on their bills & be reassured that they’re doing what they can to reduce their carbon footprint.

LPG Convertible

LPG jets are included with this model, meaning Julian & Heidi would have everything needed to get up & running quickly in their mobile environment. Following a conversion to switch from a Natural Gas set up to a LPG gas set up, they are now able to power their cooking using canisters from local suppliers. Due to the pressure differences between NG & LPG, this process is essential & must be carried out by a qualified engineer.

Size 50cm – 60cm

Size matters, especially on boats where space is at an absolute premium. This model comes in 2 sizes, 50cm & 60cm, which refers to the width of the appliance. While both sizes work well in a standard kitchen, in this instance, the 50cm model gives them a generous cooking resource, while taking up the smallest footprint possible. While it may not seem a big difference, that extra 10cm will aid accessibility within the boat day in day out.


The main oven has a cavity of 56Ltrs, with the second oven/grill being 24Ltrs, making a combined total volume of 80Ltrs. This is a generous offering for the home, let alone a compact living scenario like this.

Glass Hob Lid

The gas versions of this range come with a glass lid that covers the hobs when not in use. It will provide Julian & Heidi with valuable extra worktop space for light items (when the cooker has cooled down & is not in use). The lid is equipped with a safety valve, that will cut off the gas feed to the hob burners if the lid is lowered. The oven & grill burners will continue to operate regardless of the position of the hob lid.

Alongside these factors this model also gives them Catalytic Liners, an LED Minute Minder & Matt Enamel Pan Supports.
