Famous for heating Aussie meat pies on the road and now available in North America, the Road Chef 12-volt oven is a strong addition to any travel kitchen setup. Drawing only 8.3A and taking up very little space, this unique and useful appliance will greatly expand your culinary choices on the road or on the water, and installs in to just about any vehicle with ease
Using the 12 volt system in your vehicle – either direct from your engine or through a dual battery system – the Road Chef 12 volt oven can Bake, Roast or Re-heat your favourite foods. The oven will draw 8.3 Amps or 100 Watts when it is operating fully. To help you manage your battery life there is a 120-minute timer dial on the front of the oven with a handy bell to let you know when your food is ready. You have three options on how to plug your oven in: Fused Anderson Plug, Cigarette Lighter Plug, and Merit plug.
From slow cooking a stew over 4 or 5 hours to cooking a pie with crispy, crumbly pastry, you can use the temperature gauge to select the right temperature for what you cook, from 175°F to 350°F (80° to 180°C.) The thermostat in the oven will automatically turn it on and off keeping it at the right temperature. With all outer and inner parts being made from 304 or 316 stainless steel it will stand the test of time, even in a marine environment.
The food that you cook in the Road Chef is only limited by your imagination. You can reheat frozen meals that you have pre-made like casseroles, stews and curries or choose store bought food like pies, pizzas or any of the massive range of frozen meals available at your supermarket. If you’ve got a little more time on your hands you can easily cook from scratch almost anything you can do in your oven at home; a roast, lasagne, pasta bake or muffins and cookies. Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you have to eat boring!
With two removable racks the oven allows to you cook lots of ‘small’ food like spring rolls or mini pizzas or take the top tray out and give yourself room to put in a roast with vegetables. Both trays are telescopic and slot securely inside, so you can pull them out while cooking, giving you easier access to the food in the oven. You can also remove them both giving you easy access to clean the bottom of the oven.
One of the keys to the Road Chef oven’s efficiency is the heavy-duty insulation used to keep the heat in. Even when it is at 350°F the outside of the oven will only be warm to touch and can be safely placed on a passenger seat. The door is also insulated providing maximum internal temperature for minimum Amp draw. There are three weep holes on the top of the door to allow moisture to escape, ensuring that your pastry is flaky, that your roasts are browned, and your mouth is watering as you drive along. The port latch securely holds the door closed even across the roughest roads! If you are setting up an interior build, there are two tie down brackets included. These can be used to secure your oven to the top or underside of a shelf allowing you maximum space saving capabilities.
Notes on your oven’s operation: Most vehicle 12V outlets are designed to take a maximum of 10 Amps, so while the oven is only drawing 8.3 Amps, this is close to its limit so we suggest you hardwire it directly to your battery using an Anderson plug, which provides a superior connection. The oven is fused at 15 amps and terminates in a 50-amp Anderson plug, and includes an additional 50-amp Anderson to cigarette/merit plug adapter which also contains a 15-amp fuse. If in doubt, consult a professional installer for advice.
