Wavebox portable microwave

Has anybody had any experience with a product called a "Wavebox" portable microwave? It is small, supposed to run off both 115 vac and 12 VDC. If so, how does it cook, etc.

Thanks,

The website says 660 watts on ac power which I mostly plan to use it on, I have a CCD 28 and there is no easy place to mount even the smallest commercial microwave. My RV'ing can best be described by your comment " really it appears to b more 4 the tail gate/tent camper crowd"....which is OK with me if it works at some level.

hi nangoff

cosmotini had the same issue in his 28ccd, and this was his approach...

on the old unit...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/164505-post8.html

and on the new one...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f283...ave-19555.html

which may/may not work 4 u.

it seems there are a variety of small (600 watt) units available for way under 100$, that might work for u.

i've seen several at wallyworld, but here's a general site to explore...

micro cooking

IF u don't plan to use the d/c feature and will always be plugged into ac, any small model could be stored and used as needed.

cheers

Very interesting, and it's only ¥22,000 (Yen)!

Cool

IMHO, I would pick-up a $49 buck AC unit at Wally world and add 1000.W inverter. Much more versatile.

But that's if I just had to use or need a micro while boondocking.

Thanks guys, I have explored all of these sites and posts. They're all excellent but I'm looking for a really small microwave with small footprint and little weight. All of the units I've seen are all about the same size except this one which is really small and light. I can put the thing in one of our cabinets without any modifications. So, the search goes on, this unit is new to the market and I'm searching for some reviews. Gerry

Same Story

I was looking at the wavebox in September - and haven't found any retail outlets for it. I'm betting that it will be sold in truckstops first - after all, truckers are more likely to want to cook with 12 volt.

Tappan makes a really small microwave. Most of the time you'll find it in Marine supply stores.

Well one this is for sure. The 12V power requirements exceed the abilities of the power socket in most cars and trailers.

I think it requires 12 amps, the AS port says not to exceed 8 amps is it? I was wondering if a higher amp receptacle could be installed from the converter. They used to sell them at Cabellas. I was very interested in one until I read a review that powered on 12 volt it was grossly underpowered and took a long time and did an uneven job of heating. I am considering the slide-out pantry placement as installed as an option in the newer Airstreams.

Hey, ding ding ding, this is my 3,000th post.

If you're using AC power, you can get a 0.8 cubic foot Panasonic that is physically smaller than the unit you posted. More powerful too.

The 0.8 Cubic Foot Panasonic I've found measures 19"w x 14"d x 11-1/8"h and weighs 28.4 pounds.

The Wavebox is 15w by 10d x 11h and weighs 14 pounds.

What Panasonic model are you referring to?

Thanks,

Gerry

More = Less

Hi, I find it facinateing that my plain jane, BVD, basic Safari comes standard with a stove top, oven, and microwave; And some of these high dollar, fancy, schmancy models come with a stove top and an oven or a microwave, but not all three.

Who said your 25' Safari wasn't high dollar and fancy and schmancy?
