Update: I’m using this on a United 737 right now and am blown away. I brought a few frozen blintzes onboard and am now enjoying hot blintzes. Best of all? United didn’t load my kosher meal and the flight attendant offered me a tapas snack box with several kosher snacks and a $250 United electronic travel certificate!

It’s really a game changer compared to hoping that a flight attendant might agree to warm up your double wrapped kosher food.

Update: Now $39.95.


HotLogic Mini Portable Oven, Excellent For Travel Or The Office, For Just $29.95 Shipped From Amazon!

I have not yet used one of these portable ovens, but several DDF users report that it’s a must have office and travel item. Somehow I haven’t heard of it before!

I typically travel with a small toaster oven when I go to places without kosher food and have shlepped one to places from Hawaii to Iceland to the Maldives.

DDF members report that the HotLogic oven 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 few hours to warm up frozen food. That means you’ll have to plan your meals ahead of time.

On the plus side, DDF members report that you can put plastic or foil in the HotLogic and you can put in food in the morning and eat it in the evening.

As you only need 45 watts to power this, DDF members report that you can use a basic converter to use overseas.

On the downside, you won’t be making crunchy nachos in a HotLogic like you can in a toaster oven.

DDF members even report successfully plugging in the HotLogic into an airplane outlet to have warm food on a plane without having to beg a flight attendant to warm up their food! Airplane outlets supply 60-75 watts, so as long as you have some time, that will work to get hot food in the air.

DDF members also report using a power inverter to have hot food while driving!

This HotLogic Mini will fit 1 Pomegranate style travel meal.

You can also get this HotLogic Casserole version for $59.80 which will fit 2 meals at a time. That version requires 100 watts, which means it probably won’t work on a plane. You’ll want to get multiple 45 watt HotLogic Mini ovens to warm food on a plane from separate outlets.

I bought a Mini and a Casserole and will report how it works out after a future trip!

I put pita on the hot plate part with a silver foil in between and it came out crispy, just don’t close the bag

We just took it to Costa Rica & it was great!
Food was in plastic meal tray, put it in from Polarbear cooler (so cold not frozen)
Was ready after abt 2 hrs
Food was perfect temp and super moist!

Ben

It does not warm cold food, but will keep warm food warm. For example if you take hot soup or food for lunch warm it before you leave then about an hour before lunch plug it in and it will be warm for lunch ….i would not say HOT but warm it only gets to 165 degrees at its hottest the minimum safe temperature for meat and chicken. Definitly not as good as a toaster oven on a trip.

Abraham

It does warm food

FBR

Used this on several trips to heat up frozen food. Put it in in the a.m., by evening it was nice and warm/hot. Perfect temperature and moisture. Much better than a toaster IMO.

Abraham

I bought from another brand. It’s sitting text to my desk and i use it to warm up my launch.
1 hour for cold & 2:15 for frozen.
Tastes better than microwave, but still gives a taste to the food

“DDF members even report successfully plugging in the HotLogic into an airplane outlet to have warm food on a plane …”

Perfect, when the minyan in the aisle has ended, you can bring out the hot kiddush!

Danny Albi

I can attest to using a HotLogic mini all the time during my flights for work. It works very well Heating up food while in a plane

Eric from Dallas

This sounds very cool – I may order one. However, people will need to use it correctly. You do *not* want to get food poisoning while traveling. As per user @Ben below, and also Amazon customer comments – max temp is around 165F. A user on Amazon tried this unit with raw frozen chicken. His data showed the unit taking the chicken from 35F to 153F. If this process goes slowly (which it does), your chicken will linger in the unsafe zone for hours. You might get away with this a few times, if you’re lucky – but eventually, Salmonella will *ruin* a trip.

If it’s the right food (like a sealed MRE or airplane meal) – you’re fine. But please don’t use this for leftover chulent. Not sure if it would work to make actual meaty chulent with an 18 hour cook, but veggie chulent might be ok (if you’re into that – not judging) – or maybe use fully cooked hot dogs or pastrami.

Eric from Dallas

BTW – reviews on Amazon are excellent. If anyone has ambitions of working on the railroad, apparently this is *the* machine to keep in the caboose. Trains supply 74v DC in the cab – which this unit can consume. Who knew

“ DDF members also report using a power inverter to have hot food while driving!”
Alternatively, you can purchase the 12v version that plugs right into the cigarette lighter.

Joeymc

But then you can only use it in the car, you can’t use that one in a hotel or office.

Ymg

Great product!! I’ve used it on trips and also for Shabbos in a hospital. Was the perfect thing for Shabbos.

Louise

Did it turn off after 12 hours?

Tavster

I bought and tried the casserole version. I was super impressed. An excellent solution for kosher travelers

Mg

I have 2 of these and used them many times for travel , I travel a lot to 3rd world countries that don’t have any food & this is great . Usually I take pomegranate or similar travel meals out of fridge and it’s hot within a half hour . ( I never tried fully frozen meals )

ted onig

I just used the Casserole version this past shabbos. Excellent item! I warmed up all of our takeout food. Put up food the morning, and had a nice warm lunch.
I just took the hot plate, and left the carrying case home; Was great for carry on luggage; Same width as an apple laptop.

Alive again

Tibor

I am satisfied to eat cool or room temperature food.

dovy weiss

“or a few hours to warm up frozen food. That means you’ll have to plan your meals ahead of time.” you can just take out of your freezer in the morning so it would take faster

Louise

I just tested my new Mini at home today with a refrigerated meal. It’s basically a miniature Shabbat platta that doesn’t quite get as hot. Having it inside of a thermal lunch bag means the entire contents will heat up, not just what touches the hotplate. I’m not sure I’d be willing to cook with it but my leftovers heated up to warm not hot in around one hour. I’m tempted to leave it on all day tomorrow to see if it really turns off after 12 hours, otherwise I don’t know how useful it would be for Shabbat.
