Works great - just make sure your wiring is rightWe purchased the pie warmer to sit on our boat so we can have a pie while fishing. We have a 100 amp hr lithium phosphate battery and we have added a Renogy battery monitor because we work our battery hard and we need to make sure we don't drain it. We have a 50 amp capacity Anderson plug/cable from the battery to the front of the boat and we connected the pie warmer into that. The pie warmer draws around 20 amps. It heats up nice and fast. We usually put a couple of those Herbert Adams Pies (you can get from Woolworths) in there and follo… Read more · 2w the instructions on the box and the pie warmer did the job perfectly. I think it takes around 50 minutes to cook so we draw around 20 amp hours out of the battery. I've read a few reviews saying the pie warmer wasn't working properly but I'd say the main issue would be not having thick enough wiring between the battery and the pie warmer. We have been really impressed with the purchase. It looks the business, and works great.
Great product for the priceI have done a reasonable amount of testing now, keep in mind these are designed To be used well driving so higher volts will make it perform better!
If you try and use this with no alternator power comming in and no solar it's going to have a hard time heating up and you'll have a very long painful experience trying to cook a meal....
However you can add a voltage step up and this will fix that issue, but I'm not sure on what adventure kings would have to say about it.
It's rated for 120w, but with good solar iv seen mine start up at 160w and r… Read more · 1un constantly on about 140w When it's got 15v going in it will run on 188w, now I'm not sure if this is too much and it does seem like it but only time will tell it does heat up to its max temp pretty quick and click off on 15v though so certainly a lot more efficient! I payed $150 for mine, I think that's a very good price! Add a step up for about $30 ebay special or $80 for a SMW (they only make a 14v step up/down but it's probably a better quality product) and it will be a great addition especially for cooking at night at camp
Adventure Kings 12v Travel Camping OvenI believe the reviews that are on here are all fake. The advert for these 12 volt ovens is false and misleading. There is nothing in the advert regarding how many amps these will draw from your battery with in your vehicle or in your camper trailer, I run x2 120ah batteries charged from the Landcruiser whilst driving and 250W solar when set up. The first time we used this there was a melting plastic smell and smoke coming from the inside of the panels of my Landcruiser. So we moved it to the camper and it flattened the brand new fully charge 12... Read more0ah battery in 10 minutes, It never even got hot enough to heat anything. When we got home I called Adventure Kings about it melting the wiring and draining the battery to beyond being able to recharge and there response was below average saying no one else has complained about batteries going flat. I noticed the cigarette socket was melted and all the wiring that goes the plug of my Landcruiser was melted beyond repair. I asked Adventure Kings what these ovens draw in amps. There answer was about 5 amps. Looking into this I found it draws more then 20 amps, hence the reason the wiring was melted. For the oven to work properly in any vehicle it would need heavy duty above 6mm wires running your a cigarette plug. There customer service is appalling. Gaining your money back in impossible trying to sell it is impossible also. I DO NOT recommend these to anyone.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I have the 12v travel oven and love it - with one minor issue. The oven retains substantial moisture from whatever food I cook. How do I reduce moisture content so the food isn’t soggy?
Hi Jamie, Thank you for your review. We recommend to leave the door ajar for airing time after use to reduce the overall moisture content in the oven.
Kind regards, Rachael
Thanks Rachael, however, I’m more concerned about the sogginess of my food rather than the moisture remaining in the oven. Do you have any advice you could share on reducing the sogginess? Is soggy food a common issue with this oven?
Hi Jamie, We would recommend doing this before use if this is happening with your food. If it heats up high enough the food should not be soggy.
12volt oven. Hi I hear several people saying the wires melt and it also draws over 15amps. Surely you have heard about this as I know a few people who have made a complaint. Can you please clarify this information? Thanks
No issue with the fuse as long as it is fitted properly, closer to 11 amp draw. I've never seen any of them get to 15
My oven using the cigarette plug melted the plastic on the cigarette plug and blew two 15mp fuses??
I tied di... Read morefferent cigarette plug from another company, blew 15am fuse again. So disappointing..
