We just got one, low usage second hand, will let you know if it's any good; hope it is so we can use it in our van and have a wider choice than soup, toast, fryups or sandwiches.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

This looks like a cool gizmo. You can cooking without heating up the kitchen in the summer. Would be good for us since we don't have air conditioning.

There was a comment on a review page about unavailablility in the US, but there are bound to be similar items. Just wait there while I go and have a look around.

You can go out and come back if you want, I might be a while.

Best I can do at the moment is this alternative, fan assisted item. More likely to get it your side of the pond than the Czech Remoska.

You might have seen them in an electrical store, maybe not. It's probably sold around the world with different brand names anyway.

While we're about it, has your other half killed himself with his home made cider yet?

No, but he insisted I give a bottle to a friend of mine. I think my friend will use it for lighter fluid.

It is probably a very effective metal polish and etching agent for artworks. Does it make a person's face roll up like a Tom And Jerry roller blind?

Yes. I keep thinking I should get him to brew beer instead. Or else build a still on the back forty.

A still, at the price of oil these days, it might be worth running a small generator on undiluted apple brandy. Be careful, ethanol, when it burns does it without a visible flame (like methanol). Other thing to check when you distil, is it ethanol = fun, or methanol = death & blindness?

I was thinking more along the lines of White Lightning or corn squeezins, like Granny Clampett used to brew.

I did two English sausages in the cooker tonight. Raised up to let the fat drain off, very nice. Next time I think I'll have a pie. Or a baked spud.

I am seriously going to get one of these things in a similar style to what you have.

The metal stand it's on transmits heat, so you'll have to put it somewhere or on something that isn't affected by it. Thought I ought to tell you about that.
