Now that the cooler days are imminent I was thinking it would be nice to have a slow cooker in the van , going away for the weekend on the Friday put something in the slow cooker transfer to van and then when we arrive no cooking as the slow cooker has done it. What I would like to know is are the 12 volt ones any good Question doing a net search I see that Towsure do one for £29.99

Just a thought...wouldn't you have to cook it in the 240v slow cooker at home and then transfer it, almost cooked, to the 12v one for travel ? Have you got a 12v supply at home or would you put it in the van during the day ?

Wouldn't it be easier to cook it at home and then transfer it in a wide topped flask or even cold to heat up in a pan when you get there ?

That said, a slow cooked meal ready for arrival is an excellent idea .

Slow cooker is good idea, personally I would buy a 240volt one, (Lidle were doing one for a tenner, Argos about £20) and use with an invertor.. A cheap invertor would be fine if you don't have one ..

The way I was thinking was this - The van is usually on hook-up on the Friday to get the fridge down to temp. so it would'nt be that much of a hardship to have it started in the van

Just check the wattage on the data plate ..add about 25% , it doesn't have to be pure sine wave

Although I have not used one myself it has been mentioned many times that the Remoska slow cooker was very good,one person used to put the food in the cooker place the cooker in the sink and allow it to cook whilst traveling( using the inverter), the cooker draws 500Watts @240V. so a 600Watt inverter should suit.

So many people rave about the Remoska cooker that I feel it would answer all my prayers ! It is however very expensive. Can anyone explain what makes it so superior to much cheaper electric frying pans ? Is it better built ? Easier to clean ? Why does it apparently cook better ?

As with all domestic cooking appliances, you can run one on an invertor but not for long! A 500 watt appliance will need a 600 watt (continuous, not peak) invertor which will draw something in the order of 50 amps from a 12v battery. If you have a 100 amp leisure battery then you will exhaust a fully charged battery in prime condition within one hour, probably much less as you will hit the invertor cut-off voltage quite quickly. If you have a high capacity alternator then you would probably be OK with the engine running but it isn't really feasible for a M/H with a "normal" leisure battery arrangement. Those of you with banks of 10+ high capacity leisure batteries can ignore this - but you know that already don't you?
