Default Portable 12v Freezers

Greetings,

Although the acquisition cost is pretty high, I found my 12v Freezer to be very handy on the road. I'm pretty sure that I spent a little over $300 for it, and it has a 14 quart capacity. In hindsight I probably would have gotten a larger one to stretch the time in between grocery runs, but as such I could fit a lot of hot pockets and frozen dinners in there if I took them out of their boxes.

I bought it from a web site called compactappliance.com - where they only seem to sell big ones now. Even so, if you're in it for the long haul its a good way to save $$$!

Here's a picture of mine:

I've been thinking about one, but just cant seem to save the 3-$400. to get one. Do you have a fridge and a freezer? obviously you have a microwave.

And it will keep things frozen even though it is only plugged in to a hot point? Man, I didn't think you could get one that worked well unless you hard wired it in. I'm going to have to find the money for that.

We just bought a regular college fridge with seperate door for freezer. About 129.00 at Lowe's.

It's lasted over a year and well worth every penny. Our 1500 watt runs it and the microwave at the same time just fine.

NowNow, if you go shopping once a week, theres no need to freeze anything...even your milk will keep in a coleman or igloo 12v cooler. Besides- frozen foods are not known to be very healthy, so hotpockets wont do....Nothing like a healthy cereal and whole milk in the morning and some fresh fruit to snack on during the day....
