I have been inundated with ads and glowing reviews about this Hot Logic Mini for use in the truck. I do not currently have anything to cook or reheat with in the truck. I have never cared for microwaves but am not opposed to them but this product sounds like it would be nice if it really works as it says. I am not opposed to paying $40 to find out if it is any good or not (have spent more money on worse things) but just curious about anyone who has actually used one. Thanks.

I have a microwave, lunch box cooker, and a George Foreman. These do everything I need, but combined cost is more than one single appliance, though.

I bought one and I've only used it twice. The microwave is much faster. If we can hook up somewhere I'll sell you mine...

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

I have one and love it....works better than one might imagine. I think it works better than the similar thing from Roadmaster sold in truck stops.

It isn't really comparable to a microwave. It is much slower and can't do everything a microwave can do. On the other hand, what it does do, it does better. It is ideal for reheating previously cooked food. Sometimes, I'll order a large meal at a restaurant when I'm by a good one, and put half of it in a foil container of the proper size and stick that in the fridge. In fact, I've just done that very thing. There was a good steakhouse across the street from the truck stop for the night, so I took one of my containers with me and put half in it. The day after tomorrow, I'll be parking at my consignee , so that morning I'll stick the meal in the Hot Logic and it will be ready whenever I am. I microwave would ruin the meal.

I also sometimes dump a can of stew in it, or beans and franks.

Consignee:

The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

The lunchboxes are pretty quick but will burn your stuff if you dont stay on top of them

An advantage of the Hot Logic - it will hold food well for at least 12 hours

I have been using a Hot Logic for awhile now. I am on Nutrisystem and it will cook a frozen meal perfect. I have even cooked raw hamburgers and potatoes, was done in 3 hours when I stopped to make my delivery......thinking of buying another one in case this one stops working
