Hi there all,
Has anyone had experience in using those 12v slow cookers? I was thinking it might be possible to cook a meal while driving, assuming the pot is well anchored?

Unless pot and lid are bolted down, and you're willing to scrape your dinner off the inside of the lid, I'd be leery. All it takes is one good bump to rearrange the interior of our egg!

We often do that in our truck, so we can have a hot lunch at a Rest Stop. Works Very Well. We bought ours at a truck stop.

Before the advent of such handy items as crock pots, there was a different way of preparing a meal at the end of a trip. One person had his method down to a real science. He would wrap whatever he needed to be cooked in aluminum foil, at the proper time place each item on the manifold of his car. The article I read did not mention if food cooked by this method was tender or tough. My guess is, it was not the former. Don

On a recent Food Network show "Feasting on Asphalt", Alton Brown used a 12V 'lunch box cooker' like the one shown in Mike's post. He was very happy with it as long as it didn't blow a fuse on the motorcycle.
