    Popped in to Lakeland today and spotted the new style Remoska. Looked much improved with the standard model on sale for £149.99. Sorry did not note the price price of 'The Grand' but it is in stock. :thumb:

    Our standard Remoska started tripping the electric at home. It was only 2 years old, but had been used intensively in the kitchen and in the van.

    We took it back to the new Lakeland shop at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol, yesterday. They were happy to provide £109.99 credit (the amount they said it cost 2 years ago), but that we'd need to pay an extra £40 to get a new one. We had a £5-off voucher, so that brought it down to £35 to pay.

    We didn't really argue the point - the staff were very apologetic and we had the last one in the store, that had been on display. They re-packaged it in the original box.

    It certainly looks smarter than the old one, and my wife used it yesterday evening and again at lunch time today. The power consumption has been reduced from 470 watts to 400 watts, but it's supposed to heat up more quickly. Certainly has worked well so far.

    Unfortunately, the semi-circular divider from the original Remoska does not fit. :cry: Lakeland say they're working to produce a new one, so will have to wait and see.

    Otherwise, all good. :thumb:

    We bought a new Grand Remoska a couple of weeks ago. I don't know how we ever managed without one.
    We are thinking of getting the standard size for the van now too.

    ( it was £169)

    It's a hefty price, what makes them so good? Everyone raves over them but I'd need to be using it a lot for that money.

    What do you cook in it? Would a halogeon cooker be the same?

    We have got the big one and the small one. Bought the big one for the van originally and then realised we would need a bigger van:Doh:

    a halogen cooker would do the job but the power consumption is around 1300watts...the grand remoska is 470watts.

    The grand is big enough to cook a full chicken in around 1/2hr

    We use the old style grand ramoska in the MH very useful bit of kit especially on hook up.

    Like Alan done lots of different dishes and can cook for a crowd in it. Easy to clean, bit of a juggling act space wise though and long handle a nuisance.

    Think they should somehow have got rid of the handle, hinged the lid and kept the glass window. The new leg stands look better though:Smile:

    Has anyone tried hestons sage multi cooker ...probably not low voltage but wondered if it was less of a juggling act?

    Tried Andrew James multi cooker at Christmas ...very good price..... Thought it would keep party food hot .....it claimed it had a variable thermostat ... It didn't....just burn and off! Took it back.:Angry:

    Might be worth reading the reviews!

    http://www.sageappliances.co.uk/the-multi-cooker.html

    There are quite a few of these on the market, cheaper too when they don't have a "chef's premium" on them!

    There's also some that have a pressure cooker function as well.

    The reviews seem very mixed ..... Know what you mean about the chef price premium.

    I think the Sage one will be a bit precious really ......looking at the instruction manual it doesn't look much of a work horse, having to sauté meat in small batches! at least the Remoska will cook a vast range of dishes, brilliant for Paella, you can put tins or dishes or egg pouching cups inside it or heat something up in a foil container.

    IMO the new Remoska prices are far too high .... But bearing in mind that with lakeland if at any time your not happy you can get your money back!

    I find one of best things to take in the MH are steam bags and soup and sauce bags from lakeland .....use them in freezer then in microwave, take such little space up and they are pretty cheap and save on the washing up too, though I re-use when I can, good for freezing leftovers too.

    I note there is a current thread re the Halogen cooker ... Will have to look at that too! Has anyone had both for a true comparison?

    And the double skillet !!! Is this electric?

    The double skillet is for use on gas stoves or burners. SWMBO loves her Remoska, no doubt she will be off to Lakeland to buy the latest model when we return to the UK. The Lakeland Lifetime Guarantee is not a gimmick, we spoke to a lady who took her 8 year old Remoska back to them when it developed a fault and it was replaced there and then without question.

    Have you looked at the Kolatron?

    Very similar to the original Remoska but has the advantage of a removeable handle and an adjustable thermostat.

    We use the Remoska in the house and because it has a removable handel we use the Kolatron in the van,

    They both work well although I must admit that the bowl on the Kolatron is not as thick as the one on the Remoska, but then the Kolatron was a lot cheaper
    :BigGrin:


    Oooops! I've just checked the Koolatron and it seems I've made a slight error. It's the lead that is detachable and not the handle.

    We bought ours from Amazon but it seems they are out of stock and do not know when they will be getting more in. It's a shame because they are a good bit of kit.

    We have a large Halogen oven which hubby loves to use at home and a double skillet for the camper - we wild camp so very rarely have electric hookup so don't take one away with us, otherwise hubby would want to take it too I'm sure!

    The double skilled (DS) consists of 2 aluminium non-stick frying pans and a glass lid, the pans are usually joined together (there's a 'hook and eye' type connector) with the top one upside down so they form a void like an oven, but can also be used as separate pans, or stacked to cook one lot of food in the bottom pan and something else in the top, say meat below and veg above, or whatever you want. They come in 2 sizes, 8" and 10" I think, and have removable handles so storing them is a bit easier than a standard frying pan. They can be used on gas and electric rings (but not induction) so as well as our normal gas cooker, we have a single electric ring so we can use our 10" DS on that on the rare occasions that we have electric hook up. They aren't the cheapest of things but they do last, and being able to cook one lot of food in one pan above the other, not only saves precious space but gas/electric too. :thumb:

    Does anybody know what the power rating on the Tefal Roast & Bake is? (ie How many watts). Thanks.
