I did try it out, however. I bought some aluminum loaf pans at the dollar store, which fit OK but not great. I poured a can of chili into the loaf pan, and plugged in the stove. It was warm enough to eat after about 30 minutes, but took about an hour to get "piping hot". I can see a lot of potential for reheating foods, even some frozen foods, but don't expect to be frying eggs or hamburger.
It draws considerable power, around 12 amps. Depending on your model car and what else is on the same circuit your cigarette lighter receptacle is on, don't be surprised if it pops a fuse. You may have to set up a circuit specifically to run the stove. As well, that is a hefty drain on your battery. I wouldn't advise using the stove for long without the engine running, or you might end up not having enough juice to start your car.
I have only one complaint, so far. The cigarette lighter adapter doesn't really fit in the compartment that was designed to store it. It arrived with the adapter jammed in there and the cord bent badly to make it fit. You wouldn't want to do that on a repeat basis, as it would eventually damage the cord. Not a big deal, but a minor annoyance to have the plug always hanging out when not in use.
I have some suggestions for those who might use one. 8" loaf pans are a little smaller than the oven compartment, so if the stove will be on a level surface you might consider pouring a little water into the oven compartment and then set the pan in the water. This will make it kind of like a "double boiler", heating the loaf pan evenly all the way around. I would also use some aluminum foil to cover the loaf pan or whatever you are heating inside it.
Finally, make sure to clean and/or dry the cooking surfaces after it cools down. If you close and seal the lid while it is still warm, water will condense on the surfaces as it cools. Since it seals pretty well, that moisture will stay trapped and I can imagine mildew or bacteria forming.
*Update 6/21/15* I bought a coated, tin loaf pan at Walmart that ALMOST fits perfectly. There is a lip around the top of the pan, that widens into tabs on the sides to form "handles". I bent the tabs straight up, then pinched in the sides of the pan so that that lip doesn't prevent the oven from closing. This is better than the disposable foil loaf pans, as it is bigger, has a flatter bottom (conducts heat better), is more durable and easier to clean. I've included pictures of how I bent it to make it fit. You could probably cut the lip off the pan, but I would imagine that would leave VERY sharp edges and may expose bare metal that could rust.
UPDATE 4/11- I need to to let people know i am still enjoying my stove.I'm able to pull over put my food in my stove,and about an hour later its done.I was getting burned out on hotpockets,so found other great things to cook.miniature pizzas for 45 min.(butches pizza) work great in this,you might need to trim it though.Chicken wings for 60 min.(walgreens premade)work great in this too,and a nice treat for me.campbells chucky soups for 60-90 min. using loaf pans lined with foil,our great to have as well.I like the clam chowder & chicken gumbo sausage soups.BBQ sandwiches work great in this too,i buy lloyds premade pork for 45 min.,and a package of buns and i'm set for the week.Mozzarella sticks & cheddar poppers for 45 min.our a nice treat as well.This stove really saves me a whole lot of money and being a long distance trucker,it gives me a chance to have something decent when i'm gone.
Their only minor complaints...The cord fits very tightly in its compartment (though it's a nice bonus to have the compartment at all). Also, when driving alone it's a bit of a nuisance to plug & unplug it. It would be convenient if it could be left plugged in & have an on/off switch.
I think we will buy a second one for my other son who commutes in another direction. Besides, we wouldn't be able to fit a third sandwich in one unit. We do not use any sort of liner, but the sandwiches are thoroughly wrapped. Occasionally it necessitates a wipe-out with a damp cloth. No trouble at all. We highly recommend this!
