I've been scouring the forums about cooking while OTR and it seems an induction burner plugged into a 1500 watt inverter might be the best way to cook and heat up food (It appears that an electric pressure cooker and portable frying pan comes in second-place). For any of you drivers out there with an induction burner: Please tell me what brand and experiences you have. Thanks.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I'm not otr yet, but I use my "air fryer" daily. It has a basket similar to a deep fryer but uses no oil. French fries come out like they're baked, but crispy.

An Aroma Cooker, a crock pot, stuff like that are going to use a whole lot less power.

I belong to a Facebook group of people who cook in their truck and share recipes, recommend their favorite appliances etc. Big Truck Cooking.

I love to cook, but don't do much of it on the truck. I do keep a portable gas grill with me. Be really careful if cooking directly inside the truck. . I've known more than a few people to burn their truck to the ground doing so.

I think the biggest problem with your induction burner is the digital read out. Probably would require a pure sine converter to operate correctly.

Big Rig Truck Talk on YouTube has a series on cooking in the truck.

My FarberWare air fryer says 1400 watt on the spec tag. It has a mechanical timer, so I would say it should be fine even on a cheap inverter assuming the unit is large enough.

I have a 750 watt with 1500 watt peak, so I doubt I can use mine.
