The Question Club
My husband has a thingamajig that plugs into the outlet charger in the car and converts it to a standard three-prong outlet. We're visiting his sister, who lives about forty minutes to an hour away, on Sunday. She just had a baby, so I'll be bringing dinner. I'd like to crockpot something, but it's a dish that takes 12 hours, so we'd have to start it here, unplug it, and then finish it at their place (we'll be visiting for awhile, probably at least 6-8 hours). Would it be absolutely insane to plug the crockpot in in the car? Do you think it would drain too much power or be too dangerous?|
The safer option would likely be to get it started here, unplug it for the ride, and then finish it at their place. The downside of that is that it might not cook in that time though, and I wouldn't be able to claim that I'd cooked a corned beef in a car!
What's the biggest appliance you've ever plugged in in a car outlet?
I know you guys hate food questions, so don't answer this last one if you want-- if you were eating a frozen dish with eggs (it's kind of a casserole/quiche/yum) where the last step is pouring whisked eggs over the dish and then baking for 20 minutes, would you rather eat defrosted reheated eggs or would you rather defrost the dish and pour fresh eggs over it before baking?
