    The Remoska is a very useful tool in the MH as long as you’re on hook up!
    I have one of the older ones with the window in the lid, I like to be able to see how things are cooking without removing the lid and losing heat.
    If there are only 2 or 3 of you the Standard size is fine, it will hold a small-medium size whole chicken or a joint of meat.
    I do chicken joints/thighs on a selection of veg, Biryanis, Toad-in-th-hole, bread, cakes.....etc, (for a cake I use a cake tin inside the Remoska base.)
    The Standard Remoska runs at about 190° so most things that cook in an oven for around that temp (up to about 220°) will cook in the Remoska.
    I’ve been using them for about 12 years now and wouldn’t be without one!

    Bought mine this year from Alza. Really pleased with delivery etc. It was delayed slightly but they contacted me to let me know why. Came beautifully packed. Love it, especially as I saved £60 on the price at Lakeland. Makes fantastic scones. Whilst in the van we have a lovely roast chicken meal etc., and hardly any washing up and no oven to clean! All of this because I asked for advice on this forum and the replies were so helpful even if the questions I asked may have seemed silly and trivial. Go for it!

    that literally just stalled me placing my order

    but also made me question the wattage of our inverter

    been out to check

    we have a Sterling 600W PSW inverter

    the 2l remoska takes 400W, the large one 580W,

    now need to decide on small and stay with inverter we have, or large and upgrade inverter

    Do the Remoskas ordered from alza.co.uk come with European 2-pin plugs, or with British ones? I'd prefer the 2-pin, but it's not a deal-breaker. :)

    The one we recently ordered from Alza came with the Euro 2 pin plug.

    2 pin but they sell the appropriate adapter very cheap. All works really well.

    We've only used it once for an initial test run - roast chicken, potatoes etc. I was genuinely surprised how good the chicken and spuds turned out. Definitely a keeper for us.
