Shiny Airstream Accessories

Once you catch "aluminitis" do you ever get over it? I am finding all kinds of shiny things to go with an Airstream:

Yep, that is why I have been on the lookout for a stainless blender for Margaritas.

I bought a brushed stainless toaster that is semi-Airstream shaped for ours. We have the stainless blender but it takes a lot of room so we are looking for one of the old skinny ones they made in the 1930's.

These are rather difficult to find and two of the three that I found when I remodeled my home kitchen were professional models that were quite expensive (my appliance color scheme is polished stainless with gloss black). What I finally did find was a versatile and very reliable blender from Oster -- Referred to as the Chrome Bee Hive Kitchen Blender Set that can be found at:

I have had mine for several years (close to a decade) and it has performed flawlessly.

Good luck with your search!

Kevin

Thanks Kevin. All those extra accessories make for a net setup. I'll have to take a closer look.

How about a stainless thermal cooker.
It is supposed to be a slow cooker for boondocking.

Anyone ever use one of these.

Looks big

That slow cooker looks large - how big is it? Would be good for a group event; some chili or stew, homemade soups?

Remember these?

Aluminum Stuff

We just bought a mini slow cooker (2 cups) at Bed, Bath, & Beyond about a month ago. It's brushed stainless finish and size make it look like it was made for an Airstream. It's just the righ size for two with no left overs. I have made "boiled steak" in it twice and it turned out great. It works just like a full size crock pot. The cost was $12.99.

Size information below,
The neat part is that it needs no electricty, take a look at description below or at link above.


Capacity: 4.7 qt/4.5 L

How to use: It's this simple. Assemble all the ingredients in the inner pot, put it on the stove and bring to a boil. Remove the pot from the stove and place it inside the vacuum insulated container. Thermos cookware conserves electricity and it also saves you energy. This cooking method allows for a full release of flavor by slowly simmering herbs and spices.

Dimensions: Height: 9.3" Diameter: 10.4"
Weight: 8.5lbs

Then there was the Airstream Bread Bin -- it'll keep out the centipedes but not the ants, dijer.

Love your pictures! The rest of us can only dream.

wow

That armadillo bread box is beeeuuutifulll. I wonder if it opens and closes smoothly, not clunky (clunkily?). The design/engineering factor is appealing. Wouldn't even need to use it, just look at it. It's like a sculpture.

Yes! We have a Nissan Thermal Cooker and really like it. It doesn't require any electricity (nice, since we boondock 95% of the time). It does, however, require recipes that contain enough liquids that you can bring the contents to a boil. The inner pot is then placed in the outer pot for a specified amount of time.

I can make something in the morning, put the pot in the sink tightly packed with towels so it doesn't move, and we have dinner ready by the time we stop at the end of the day.

I'm thinking I should be able to do this using my standard crockpot. Just plug an extension cord into our inverter, plug in the crockpot - secure in sink and I should have the same results for no additional $. I'll need to ask Leon if this can be done (safely).
