I often make coffee and pour it into a thermos the day before I leave on a a trip. I get hot coffee out of it two days later. It beats waking up grogged and waiting for the percolator.

But has anyone ever seen a hot thermos for burgers or breakfast burritos?

Yeah... just lazy.. would be nice to just take something hot for breakfast out a thermos bottle.

Would this Box Oven work for you? I found this one at a truck stop. It produces about 350° and has been working for several years. We heat our dinner while we are driving.

All the small 12v portable coolers have heating functions. I have never actually used that on my small "can Cooler" for the car, so I can not tell you how hard they are on the battery.

You can also buy little soft lunch boxes at wally world that have an insulated top designed to keep stuff warm.. a big thermo blanket, sort of. If they last longer than a day, I would be suprised.

I have one, I can try it.

There are wide mouth vacuum bottles that are primarily used for soup and stew, but I am sure you could stuff something else in them and utilize the thermal capability. You must have a great Thermos that will keep your coffee hot for two days!

The soft sided "coolers" will also keep thing warm.

Now comes the caution.... Food items are kept cool to reduce nasty growing things that the tummy don't like. Keeping food hot or warm for long periods of time encourage the same things to grow and multiply. Keeping food warm for the kind of time you're indicating could be deadly. Salmonella comes to mind. It's a real killer.

Maybe it's a good idea to keep your food cool, refrigerated then heat just before time to eat. I know of at least one non messy way to cook some foods or reheat precooked food. A BakePacker works great and no mess. Check it out here.

Thanx, Byron, for posting the 'bakepacker' link. I think I like this concept better than something like the Coleman stovetop oven arrangement. Someone (possibly you) had mentioned this item once before, and now after several months without an oven, it's looking like something we need to add to our rig. Calzone & Apple Cobbler - yum! L 'n D

hey thanks for the input people. No doubt keeping food just warm is danger... I think it is recommended to keep things hot at 140+.
I go overnighting in just my truck and shell sometimes. So would like to have breakfast without lighting up a flame.

Somebody sent me this link of a mini microwave... 400 watts. I could run this off an inverter as long as I brought along a good deep cycle rv battery... think? only 400 watts. not good for frozen things but a cold burrito? maybe.

I've used that portable oven many times when i was a driver and i would put raw materials in it and after the appropriate time i had a fresh cooked meal....kept my food cold with a separate cooler.

Wow "HOT" coffee after two days? I never got past one day.
What kind of thermos are you using?

can't a guy exaggerate?

sheesh

Actually I have had [b]warm coffee two days later.
Thermos "explorer" or something like that.
Pour in real hot coffee then nuke two of those neck collar heater things then put the whole shebang in a small thermal carrier.
Stays nice and hot.

I think my best burrito thermos is going to be the box oven

Actually I own 3. 1 in my backpack, 1 in the trailer, and the large one when I want to cook for more than the two of us.
Sometime during the Spring NOG drop by and I'll whip up Byron's Famous Biscuits and Gravy. Well, I don't know how famous it is, but it's been well liked. It's actually a gravy flavored biscuit with bits of ground up jerky.
