Quote from the Roadpro website in the url given in my post above:-
There is no easier way to make a hot, nutritious meal than in a 12V slow cooker. Just put in some meat and vegetables before you begin your journey, plug it in and, at the end of the day, dinner will be ready! It's an easy and convenient way to eat healthily.

The problem is that you can only use them on 12v so not usable at home on 230v

There was discussion some time ago on the use of a slow cooker (230v) on the move but I don't remember anyone saying that they had done it.

Do they come with screw-on lids??

I'm not exactly joking either, as the roads round here are so full of potholes and sunken trenches I wouldn't get ten miles without the stew flying everywhere.

Where do people put them for the journey so they are both secure from spillage, and safe in case of heavy braking or (perish the thought) a shunt?

The previous suggestion has been in the kitchen sink.

Don't think our sink is deep enough Gillian, and it has a stupid hinged glass cover, so that would be a pain in the bum if it would not close properly.

Not for long though on our roads, but then I would have glass fragments to clear up as well as the stew!! 8O

I may be over cautious but I always when travelling think about what would happen in a crash. If a pillow can become like a brick at speed I think that being hit by an unsecured stew pot with simmering liquid may not be conducive to health.

Have I misunderstood?

We have used our remoska on the move... risky possibly... but it's great to have a goulash ready when you get to you destination.... or pizza and chips... or sauasage and onions... erh where was I.

We run the remoska through a 1200w inverter, and have 1 single 90 Amp battery.

We're looking at getting a slow cooker for the MH.

We plan to put a non slip mat in the bottom of the sink basin, fill slow cooker with ingredients to within 2" of the lid, place a small piece of non slip mat on lid, damp tea towel over that, slim cushion on top of that, and turn on, lower sink lid to hold it all in place. (smev sink), I also thought that if I could find a pan lid which would fit inside the cooker itself it would help to stop it surging around inside.

I must add this is just a plan so far and not actually tried it as not got the inverter yet, and I'm sure my plan is full of holes.

On a winter trip down to Plymouth ferry, I decided I would do a lovely meal in my slow cooker.

I had it in the sink on a non slip matt, with a tray wedge to one side also bungied the lid down, and around and was secured to a fixed pole which exists next to my sink. Its hard to explain but it was well wedged in and the lid was secure, fairly safe.

The Bad thing it flattened the battery. We have since changed the batteries and have tried it a few times since. What I tend to do if on EHU is cook the meal overnight, put it in the fridge, and then reheat in the slow cooker a couple of hours before reaching destination. Which means not such a drain on batteries.

My suggestion is to get a pressure cooker, you can cook a nice stew in 30 minutes and not use any electrical consumption. If you have the ingredients already prepared by the time your setup and have a glass of wine dinner is ready.
