    Having bought my Remoska and used it a couple of times it keeps tripping out electricity so am returning it. I was going to get a replacement but have since been looking at Halogen cookers (JML) on the web and these seem to do exactly thge same thing but they are cheaper and I found that the remoska lid was awkward to use when taking off when hot , also the large handle makes it awkward for storing- I'm trying to imagine doing this in the small confines of our motorhome!
    We do not have an oven so I am looking for something to cook pizzas, pies, etc.. has anyone experience of using the halogen cookers in their vans - do they trip the electric or are they sufficiently low powered.
    Very confused!!!!!!

    I haven't used a halogen in a motorhome yet but have one at home and my son has another. If you do get one I would stronly recommend the one that has a hinged lid so you dont have that problem of where to put it. My sons hasn't ( ours has ) and its a pain in the @rse

    a big consideration should be given to the power consumption...

    grand ramoska = 640w...2.75amps

    JML oven = 1300W...5.65amps

    fine in the uk but not much good on some euro campsites with only 5amp supply.

    Sounds like you need to switch something off when you use your cooker, maybe using too many things at once is why the leccy is tripping?

    This is happening in my home kitchen not in the van - having researched fault on the web apparently this is a common fault which they are aware of and have been replacing them
