Yes Carol, we use it regularly in the van because we only have a hob but with the BBQ, Omnia and Remoska we can vary our meals, it cooks and bakes well but the price is surprising now, I bought the silicone mould and the rack as well and for all three it is £95 at today's prices so worth looking for a used one, if I see one for sale I will let you know

I bought one of these or very similar many years ago when we started caravanning as I thought it would be useful in the van. It was a total waste of time, both my husband (who was a much better cook than me) tried it, both on the gas ring at home and in the caravan. It was useless, everything was either burnt or undercooked and it was a real pain to clean afterwards. I think I threw it out when we moved, 25 years ago.

That’s what I was wondering though some people swear by them.

Thanks Tezza. I don’t want to pay silly money and take up space if it’s not going to be used. I bought a Remoska years ago from the shop in Chekoslovia (?) and never used it. Dug it out a few days ago so experimenting with that - I’ve got a 1000w inverter so theoretically I think I could use it in the van - though I’d be pretty wary about it! Hope you’re both well xx

The Remoska's are brilliant Carol, we use ours all the time at home and plan to use it in the van as well.

A few years ago, one of my friends had a new Remoska that her Mother had bought her for Christmas (she'd asked for it, and thought Mother had been a bit shocked when she saw the price but got it for her anyway)
We were camping over New Year on a pub site that had EHU and one afternoon decided to visit the nearby caravan dealer accessory shop, as you do. We'd been wandering around the shop for while when she remembered she'd left a pie warming in the Remoska for her lunch - mad panic and rush back to the campsite, we'd actually been gone at least a couple of hours - it was fine, the pie was heated to perfection and nothing had burnt down.
So, Rob, I think it would be a good idea for you to use one in the van instead of the gas oven.

Hi Rob, dug mine out a few days ago and started using it - great for cooking for one - chicken and roast parsnips last night. Pity I never have hook up. Mentioned somewhere I do have a 1000w inverter but I’d be scared to use it. Hope you’re both well x
