Koolatron 12V Lunch Box Stove
Road trips are always fun, but stopping for fast food or munching cold sandwiches can be expensive and boring. What if you could warm up a meat pie or some homemade chili – on the spot? Roadside pullouts or sitting in the truck at a job-site can be your chance to create culinary treats using a portable stove such as the Koolatron 12V Lunchbox Stove.
What looks like a standard, somewhat clunky, black lunchbox opens to expose two deep aluminum cooking surfaces. Plug the 12-volt cord into the cigarette lighter socket while the vehicle idles and start preparing the meal. If you are warming opened jars of baby food or cans of beans, pour a little water into the unit to make a water bath to heat the food quicker. By freezing meals in disposable bread pans or oven bags ahead of time, you can fold the lid over, snap the lock and reheat your gourmet meal even quicker. Or, line both pans with foil while you cook hot dogs. Toss the used foil in the bin and resume your journey.
The internal thermostat maintains a temperature of 300 F, so do take care. Of course, you won't be driving while you create your meal.
