Dan’s note: I spent last week island hopping in Hawaii, chasing volcanoes and waterfalls. We brought food in a Polar Bear cooler which kept everything frozen. While I used to travel there with a toaster oven, this time I relied on several HotLogic ovens, which are amazing because they take up very little space.
I used it in-flight to have a delicious warm meal, and even to warm up some of the frozen parts of the airline supplied kosher meal, and let me tell you, a hot roll and dessert is a whole lot better than a frozen one!
A standard takeaway food tray, like if you buy a travel meal from a place like Pomegranate or take out food from a restaurant, will fit in the Mini oven. The HotLogic Max oven will fit 2 meals or a 9×13 pan!
We also used this power inverter to have hot food while driving around for the day and island hopping.
Between the Polar Bear and HotLogic, kosher travelers can truly travel anywhere in the world and have delicious hot food on demand.
The HotLogic oven on the other hand folds down next to nothing, making it an ideal travel mate. However while a toaster oven will warm up cold food in 20 minutes or frozen food in an hour, the HotLogic will take an hour to warm up cold food or a couple hours to warm up frozen food. That means you’ll have to plan your meals ahead of time and defrost meals in advance.
Want to speed up the process? If you buy 2 HotLogics you can take the warming trays and combine them into one bag to have the food warmed from both the bottom and the top to accelerate the warming process.
You can also put plastic or foil in the HotLogic without issue and you can put in food in the morning and leave it in there until evening and it will be fine. That’s because the HotLogic only gets up to 165 degrees, so it won’t melt plastic or overcook your food, but it will get your food hot with enough time.
As you only need 45 watts to power the mini or 100 watts to power the Casserole oven, you can use a basic converter to use them overseas, though some DDF members report using it overseas without a converter as well. I haven’t yet tried mine overseas.
On the downside, you won’t be making crunchy nachos in a HotLogic like you can in a toaster oven. And you’ll need multiple HotLogic ovens to heat up meals for a whole family.
Using a HotLogic on a plane is not something that airlines are likely to encourage (though I have seen flight attendants using them as well for their own meals), but it was easier than gambling on whether I’d be able to persuade the flight attendant to warm up my own meal in the plane’s oven. It’s a real game changer!
Note that airplane outlets only supply 60-75 watts of power, so that may only work with the Mini, though I didn’t try it with the Max.
