How to cook in the car

All of us once had a snack in the car. Agree, there is nothing better than after several hours at the wheel chew a savory homemade sandwich with boiled pork and greens, washing down this magnificence with hot aromatic coffee. But it also happens that on the road you have to be not one day. A stock of sandwiches has dried up, coffee in a thermos has long cooled down, and along the road there are only doubtful toshnilovki. That’s when the wandering gadgets come to the aid of the wanderers, allowing them to eat in the way of hot food of their own preparation. We present you a selection of common and not very items of kitchen utensils, working from the on-board car network.


But this device just can already work while the car is moving. Automobile kettles now also a great variety. Different shapes, different colors, with automatic shut-off, with automatic switch-on in case the temperature fell below the set temperature, with fastening to the deflectors, with fastening in cup holders, with fastening to the door … Nevertheless, all this variety is nothing more than an improved reboiler with cover. The power of this kettle is the same, about 150 W, which is enough to boil a liter of water in 30-40 minutes. Plus, this device is that the kettle can be put in advance and in the parking lot itself, you do not have to wait for the water to boil to make tea or instant noodles. And in order not to miss the moment when the water becomes stiff, we recommend taking a kettle with a transparent bulb.

Such kettles are even with lighting, which at night is very important.

If you are looking for refrigerators for your car:


No less spread than teapots, and received a car droplet coffeemakers. The principle of their action differs little from the principle of the action of household coffee makers. Yes, and the price is about the same. On average, an automobile coffee maker will have to pay about 2500 rubles. The volume of their flask is from 300 to 600 ml, and the preparation of a fragrant “regular” takes 10-15 minutes. The only thing that can upset those who want to buy such an item of automotive use is its size. Because of the principle of action, the coffee maker is usually twice as large as the kettle, so it will be appropriate to look in the cab of the truck or camper, and certainly not in the small car showroom.


Despite the fact that this device is intended only for heating up already prepared food, it is very liked by professional drivers. Taking with him to work already cooked lunch, it is enough just to warm it by plugging the plug into the cigarette lighter socket. Divided into two parts, the bowl allows you not to mix food, and the supplied fork, spoon and chopsticks are suitable for any meal. It should also be noted that the power of this device is only 40 W, and it does not heavily burden the on-board network.

Depending on the menu, lunch or dinner can warm up from 40 minutes to an hour, which is quite appropriate, especially if you have “service by service, and lunch on schedule.” To switch on this device in advance and in motion is completely safe, because its containers are hermetic, and the lid has a reliable fixation.


It would be strange if such a useful and versatile product was not released in the car version. And it, naturally, exists. That’s only the volume of such furnaces, as a rule, from 10 to 15 liters. Yes, and they have almost twice as much power as stationary ones, which is quite understandable, considering what kind of network they are fed from. By the way, you do not need to connect such a microwave oven through the cigarette lighter socket, but from the battery directly and necessarily with wires with an enlarged section. And the longer the wire, the cross section should be greater. And now, as they say, attention. It is much easier to buy inexpensive and operating from the network 220 volts and power it through an inverter of appropriate power. By the way, this is exactly what those who want to attach this household item to in a truck or camper.


Summarize all of the above want a warning. Any additional electrical device in the car is a potential threat. The minimum that can be expected from a faulty charger or kettle is a blown fuse, maximum short-circuit and fire. So, deciding to buy this or that electrical appliance, be sure to read the instruction manual and its characteristics, and if they do not correspond to the electrical equipment of your car, refuse to purchase. And the device itself must be of proper quality.
