It's a electric pressure cooker and reduces cook times exponentially with great results. You can cook a pot roast in less than an hour. I have a 6qt, but they vary in options and size.

We usually grab a rotisserie chicken prior to leaving and use it for sliced sandwiches, tacos, chicken salad or anything that calls for cooked chicken.

Keep a bag full of those single serve condiment packets from fast food places.
Ketchup, Mayo, Hot Sauce, Mustard, Soy Sauce, relish, salt, pepper, BBQ sauce, honey...there are a zillion different kinds out there. I don't even think they ever expire..but I don't think I would keep them longer than a year. Keep them in a zip lock bag.

We carry a small toaster oven for those times when we have power, it sits outside on a small table and can be used like a oven for warming and cooking things.

Bake some fresh cookies and see and hear the comments!

What kind of power does it draw? Can you run it and your AC while boon docking?

Says 1000W for the 6L version. Never did it while boon docking as use my DO with charcoal instead.

It is the same as a microwave though based on Watts and should be fine. The only issue is keeping things warm as you will need to have power if you intend to leave it on. If you use it to cook then eat, no issues.

20 minutes for most dishes that would take 1.5 hrs or more.

Cool Make aheads

I love the precooked bacon I buy at Costco. We have used it for years.

I like to freeze flank steaks with marinade in a freezer zip lock so I can pull one out earlier in the day. Defrosts for grilling or fajitas quickly. I also buy boneless chicken breasts and pound them to 1/2 in thick and freeze individually. Quick defrost and cook with the thinner filet. I make a small meatloaf for two ( do NOT bake first) in a baking pan lined with parchment paper & freeze. Take it out early in the day and bake when defrosted or even still partially defrosted. I make my fave Italian meatballs and freeze them (UNCOOKED) on a sheet pan. Put them in a freezer bag and pull out the desired meatballs and throw them in a simmering sauce. Wonderful for meatball sandwiches or spaghetti and meatballs. One of my fav appetizer do aheads is to make small savory bluecheesecakes in ramekins. Freeze. put them in a zip lock. I pull out one to defrost (sometimes 30 seconds in the micro). Serve with a pepper style jelly over the bluecheescake and a sturdy cracker. Always a hit. I keep a jar of Trader Joe's salted caramel sauce and a jar of their morello cherries in syrup. Heat them and pour over store bought pound cake, angel food cake or ice cream for a nice dessert for company.

More kitchen shotcuts

I make my own pancake/waffle mix and premeasure dry ingredients into ziplocks for a batch for two. Add the egg/milk/butter and we have a nice treat for breakfast.
Breakfast burritos are a great quick breakie, especially on a travel day. Scramble an egg, add some cheese, salsa, leftover breakfast meat/slice of bacon and maybe avocado and put it in a warm tortilla. QUICK and yummy!

I did buy a thermal cooker on ebay this year. I only used it twice and ended up gifting it to a tent camper. I just didn't find it that useful when I have a kitchen in my little TT. It would be awesome for folks who do not have a real kitchen when they are camping. Nice for boondocking too.

By the sound of things no wonder Americans look the way they do. All blown up. SAD (standard american diet) high in sodium and a list of ingredients no one can pronounce Were are the healthy alternatives? Eat healthy, have more energy, live longer! Try fresh and organic and I will guarantee more vitality and energy.

Where's the fun in that? I'm typically on vacation when we go out in the RV...I'll eat healthy at home.
