Now that the new California law has passed banning “hands-on” cellphone use in automobiles, people may just be anxiously clamoring for something else to do with their newly freed hand (ok, stop it).
The folks over at Maplin (the electronics specialists) believe they have the answer: a portable, 12V, in-car microwave! Finally, your meals can now be “on the move” with this small, somewhat-modern black box that will sit inconspicuously on your passenger-seat floor mat.
In no time you’ll be heating up your poppyseed muffin, or drinking piping hot lattes in the comfort of your leather bucket seats - all while commuting to work. No more need for Starbucks.
And it’s no slouch either on the speed-cooking front:
Pizza 2 mins (battery connection) 4 mins (in-car cigarette plug connection)
Coffee 3 mins (battery connection) 6 mins (in-car cigarette plug connection)
If you have ever found yourself steamed at the sight of the ill-bred “radio changer”, “lipstick applier”, “text messeger” or “paper reader” swerving into your lane almost forcing you off the road and onto the shoulder, it won’t be long before you can add the “mobile chef” to that list.
Oh, and don’t forget to start your engine before poaching your egg:
“It is advised that you start the vehicle prior to using the microwave to improve cooking times and prevent the car battery from becoming discharged.”
