Crock Pot Cooking while traveling

I am a bit stumped... I read somewhere (on line, naturally) that you can have a crockpot pluggin in and cooking dinner as you travel down the road. We are in a FW.... just wonder..... has anyone heard this/done this???? is it safe? I have put a crock pot in the sink..... after cooking it at home for a short ride to a campground..... and it has stayed hot. Just wondering HOW you would secure it???

You can't use a crockpot in a 5er going down the road unless you have a generator or inverter to furnish 110 volts or unless you have a 12v crockpot. If you have a generator or a 12 volt model, I would put it in a large metal pan to take care of spills and use museum putty to hold the pan and the crockpot. I just wouldn't do it regardless.

X2 on what OldCoot said. That just isn't something I would try.

Good question Earth Station! Hmmmmm....we use the genny when we are traveling......I bet if you have the crock pot securely sitting in the sink, and your crock pot is not full to the top, you could do it! It's not like the crock pot is going to jump out of the sink, and as long as it is sitting so it doesn't slide around in the sink, it might actually work! It actually sounds like a good idea....travel and have a great meal when you are done! (Of course I am a PPST/C member and we are known to try some crazy things!)

If you’re going to try this you better know there aren’t any rough roads ahead. You might want to secure the lid to the crockpot also. Depending on the type and style of sink you put the crockpot in expect some dents or damage if you encounter rough roads. On the other hand, if you’re just driving to a local campground and you know the roads are smooth then I say go for. Be sure to come back and let us know how that worked out for ya.

Plus you should have a stainless steel sink. Wouldn't think of it in one of the non-metal ones. Not a very good idea even in my feeble mind.

I have that movie!! Our new rig has the really deep sink, but it is wide, so the crock pot would have to be secured so it doesn't slide around......

Museum putty. Hope your sink is metal.
