Arrive at your destination with a delicious hot meal waiting for you, by adding a 12 Volt Travel Oven from Road Chef to your set up.
This compact and space-saving unit allows you to use the 12V battery system in your vehicle or through a 12V dual battery system to reheat, bake or roast while you’re driving. Just pop your stew, roast, pies or pasties in this unit, and it’ll be ready to eat when you arrive. Constructed from heavy-duty stainless steel, this oven is durable enough to withstand the touring lifestyle, with minimal heat transfer to the outside. The 12 Volt Travel Oven has an insulated door for efficient heat retention and port latch so it doesn’t open when you’re in transit.
You can change the temperature with the adjustable temperature dial, and set the 2-hour timer so you don’t burn your food. There are two adjustable and removable wire racks included so to fit a variety of dishes, and there are three 12 volt connection options – fused Anderson plug, cigarette lighter plug and merit plug for easy installation in different setups.

12 volt oven review1 answer
Hi, looking at these 12 volt ovens. I've just watched the comparison by Lauren. TB 120W and RC 100W. Apart from the extra current draw, is "bigger better" or is there an advantage of a bigger wattage over a lower wattage etc? Thanks

It's a bit similar to saying 'how long is a piece of string?'
In theory, the 120W model would have 15% greater output and therefore better performance, but they're not like-for-like which makes it a bit more complicated. The lower 100W Roadchef has an insulated door, whereas the Travel Buddy with 120W does not. It is quite possible that any potential heat lost through an uninsulated door would offset the 20W difference, or at least bring it within the realms of a negligible difference.
In an instance where you were looking at two like-for-like ovens, there are several other variables that would need to be considered, such as where the oven is positioned, the gauge or wiring uses, whether or not it's run from a DC to DC inverter, ambient temperatures, etc Realistically, without extensive testing of both ovens over a range of different scenarios there's no way of saying which one is 'better'.
When it comes to choosing between the two you'd mostly decide on Aussie made or not, and price. In terms of performance, feedback has been mostly on par. I'd also recommend checking out the reviews on our website from campers who use them in real life.
Hope that helps somewhat!

Can I set the timer with the power off (eg for 1 hour), and the remotely turn the power on later on and have the over go for an hour. Or is the timer mechanical and it starts counting down regardless of the power to the unit.
Greg - Salisbury Heights, SA(7 months ago)
The timer on the oven is mechanical, so will need to be set at the time you start cooking instead of being set in advance. Hope that helps!

Looking at locations in my vehicle where I could put the Road Chef, what is the minimum distance away from the sides of the Road Chef (when in use) where can things be stored.
Andrew - Truganina, VIC(1 year ago)
The oven is essentially fully insulated, so shouldn't get too hot & there's no official clearances provided by the manufacturer. We'd probably recommend a couple of cms of ventilation to be on the safe side, but other than that just employ abit of common sense & you should be fine!

Does the timer turn off the oven?
Anthony - Cowes, VIC(2 years ago)
Yep, it sure does!

What is the difference between this model and the marine one? 1 answer
Just wondering if this would be suitable on a boat,as I prefer the latch handle? What is the difference between this model and the marine one?

Thanks for getting in touch. The Travel Buddy 12V Portable Marine Oven and the Road Chef 12V Camping Oven are actually made by two different manufacturers. We're actually in the process of filming a video comparison between the two models so we'll get that uploaded as soon as we can. The Travel Buddy Marine model appears to be essentially the same as the Road Chef and doesn't appear to have any features that make them specifically purposed for marine conditions. They are both 12V stainless steel with the Travel Buddy having a cigarette plug, and the Road Chef an Anderson plug.
