I have two of these and one 110 volt power supply.
It looks like a rice cooker so I cooked rice in it. It takes about a half hour. So I put one cup of rice and two cups of water into the pan about 30 miles from where I’m going to stop for dinner.
There is enough heat in the rice to pour a can of sliced beef in gravy or Swansons Chicken Ala King over the rice and let it take the heat from the rice.
I’ve also boiled eggs in it and heated Chili and chunky soups.
The screws have fallen out the bottom of the unit and the first one stopped working, the second one had the no stick coating peel off the inside of the pan. Burton replaced both free of charge. I bought the second one when the first one stopped heating and I was on the road, and when Burton replaced the first one I bought the power supply so I could use it on 110 volts when I wasn’t driving.
I keep an eye out on the screws in the bottom, but it isn’t a big deal, but I have tightened them more than once.
The first one was on sale dirt cheap at a TA truck stop, and my curiosity was greater than the price. The power supply was more costly than the oven.
Cleaning any cooking device or plate in a Semi truck is a hassle.
This has got me thinking. I’m going to put some eggs in and leave them in for 10 to 20 miles, stop, pull the eggs out with a spoon, and place them in a mug of ice water, Drop some macaroni in the boiling water for 10 minutes, while I peel the eggs. Then dice the eggs, add some mayo, dill and dried chives and mix in the drained macaroni. I’ll put the left overs in a zip lock bag and in the refrigerator.
It’s a low wattage device that is quicker than the lunch box ovens and would be less likely to spill the contents than the 12 volt crock pots.
I’ve used this much more than the Wave Box 12 volt microwave oven. It’s just less hassle than pulling out the cords and hooking up the 12 volt microwave.

Glad I found you guys,was considering getting a max burton stove,used many road pro’s and get about 3 months out of them before they completely give out,the latch and hinges usally fail in about a month, so started using a small crock pot and that has been working well so far
