    Hi
    I have just taken delivery of a small 1200W Grill/oven, for use in the van.

    On looking at it, and then looking at our
    domestic kitchen electric fan oven, I wondered, if I wanted, say, two baked potatoes, would it use less energy,using
    the small oven?

    Logic dictates that the given potatoes will take the same amount of energy to cook properly IE 1/2 HR in a big oven or 1 hr in an oven half the power:Doh:
    Come on ladies this is your domain

    Depends on the efficiency of the oven as well. We bought one of those double skillet things at Newark and that works very well on the gas ring with a very small flame.

    You'll be gerrin' an extra belt from Pammy for that :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hi Stan, Maybe, I am putting my foot into it. From what I have read of your post, I have had a good laugh. The lads here are a real cheerful bunch. To the point. You mention 1200W, which is I take it is your oven/grill. That power of battery (1) may or will not work at all. (2). If you have an inverter, it has to be pretty powerfull, upwards of 3500W's. If you plug in at a site for electric, then it is no problem at all. If I have misunderstood your post, you and the rest of the lads are welcome to pull my leg. I can take a joke:Rofl1::Wink: :cry::shout::Eeek:

    Reread your post. Yep!! I slipped up. I get it now. Why not go next door to your camping neighbour, get them to bake your Pots for a quid, safe you a lot of hassle.
