    I hate the little tec tower oven in our van so am seriously considering one or the other of these, however I don't eat meat and husband very rarely does (seeing as how I do all the cooking!) and I have never seen or used either of these, so the question is which would be best for us. We do have a Weber BBQ which we use occasionally if the weather is suitable. We also have a microwave which is kept in the garage but only used very occasionally. Could you knowledgeable folk explain the pros and cons of remoska vs double skillet. Thanks.

    They do pretty much the same job. Though while the double skillet will work on most heat sources, of course the Remoska just the one. The DS is much more versatile, you can boil, fry, bake, warm a croissant etc so for the space conscious it would have to be the DS. Siân loves her Remoska's though so were likely to always be carrying both :)

    I have both, I use the remoska when we have ehu and the skillet when we don't have electric.
    I'm trying to find out if you can use the remoska without the lid on a gas hob. Then I wouldn't have to replace the skillet which everything now sticks to and burns, even using a diffuser.
    Ps, just had a reply from remoska, you cannot use the pan on a gas hob.

    We have both and use both, depending on whether we have EHU. Wouldn't be without either TBH, so if you asked me choose......I really would struggle to answer.

    With regards to the skillet. Have you tried sealing it in the same way you would a cast iron pan?
    Just a thought

    HI Guys, can you cook ready meals and things like frozen chips/nuggets in the DS? I have been able to do this in the remoska just wondered if it was possible in the DS

    Yes, you could by using the top pan and flipping it over a few times so it acts like an oven but do not use oil in it as it would be designed to use dry.

    I have a tefal bake and fry, it is good but takes up room so not sure if we will keep it. I like the look of the thermal cooker by mrs D.

    We bought the thermal cooker at Malvern. I cooked lamb shanks in it the day I got it which were lovely and I've used it a few times this week at home to get used to it. Got a chicken curry and rice in there now ready for dinner tonight. Lots of friends have them and i thought it would be great to have a meal cooking whilst driving so ready to eat when we park up. Really pleased so far.
