Is Joyce Mayne still alive, I remember her commercials when she opened the first store?
Something cooking for 2 hours unattended in an office environment? Does not seem practical, or safe.
Why would it not be safe, practical or attended?
75°C is enough to cause a significant burn in a second.
Unattended due to amount of time to heat.
Small, thus very mobile.
People will pick things up to move them if the location inconveniences them.
People are clumsy.
I know, have "common sense" and all that.
So critical of humans, not the product then?
ps. 75.C in not hot enough to cause significant burns to an adult.
@Suckerzpayretail: Poor humans
@Suckerzpayretail: the product says that there will no longer be a need to wait for a microwave, which strongly suggests a work environment.
People make mistakes. Office safety is designed to mitigate the risk involved with actions such as these.
And I disagree with your second statement, as do most office/legal perspectives.
@Tihocan: I made that second observation as a former chef with 30 years of burns, not as a Lawyer with an obession with moisturiser.
@Suckerzpayretail: @dm01: Yeah I'll pay that. Savage.
Unfamiliar with the idea of a slow cooker?
Not at all, we use one at home occasionally. But in every workplace I've been you don't leave something heating unattended, even in the kitchen, due to some other goose moving it (intentionally or otherwise) and hurting themselves.
Don't leave it unattended then geez… Put a sign on it, leave it on your desk, put it in a place not easily reachable… There are many options.
Do you want to live in a world where we have to idiot proof everything?
Also, do you really think it gets that hot on the outside as it does on the inside? It's insultated.
I get where you're coming from, but it's not that different a risk from than leaving a slow-cooker to cook at home.
Note: I personally use my slow cooker outside in the backyard when I leave the house. I too, prefer to quarantine risks.
Except I don't have colleagues in my home. I wouldn't be greatly worried about burning down the office, more that some twit would pick it up and scald themselves.
The sandwich toaster at work is hot for a long time after turning off - a sentry doesn't stand by it with a thermometer.
@singlemalt72: if your workplace provides such amenities, they should be making employees aware of the safety protocols in using the appliances (signs, awareness etc).
@Tihocan: Agree with you. Depends on the scale of your work place regarding safety measures.
@Tihocan: do you work in a place where there are kids or something? I would hope that the average working adult would be capable of using a sandwich press without setting themselves on fire.
@Orpheus: seriously, we live in a world that some people think is roughly six thousand years old. I can easily foresee someone picking up a recently used sandwich press by the sides because they wanted the bench space. I understand why they have labels on food packaging that says "contents will be hot after heating".
@Tihocan: What does people believing in how old the world is have anything to do with being clumsy?
@Orpheus: it's a joke, despite the "seriously".
Edit: I've seen plenty of incredibly stupid actions in my time as a software engineer, in what is supposed to be a generally professional industry with intelligent people. If the heater gets hot enough to scald someone with its contents and is not provided by the company, as far as I know it will be the owner who takes the blame in the event that someone does get hurt. It just seems like a large risk to put on yourself, and fair enough if you all disagree.
Anyhow, as said above, just buy a sign that says HOT and that might be enough.
Ordered one for no reason. Thanks OP.
I almost did as well. I would be good if it had a usb plug option.
USB would take a week to warm your lunch. Good if you're dieting I guess ;)
Also available at Harvey Norman for the same price - http://www.harveynorman.com.au/catalogsearch/result/?q=sunbe...
Free shipping at Joyce Mayne, $5.95 shipping at Harvey Norman
Free pick up in HN stores. either way, I don't think they will sell many… seems quite impractical lol
Free shipping still beats free pick up.
Free delivery @ Joyce Mayne
Nice price etc BUT seems like a terrible invention for a bunch of reasons. Anyway each to their own - but a good deal IF it seems a good idea to you. :-)
would be good if it works in the car..
This is what you want: https://www.jaycar.com.au/12-volt-large-portable-stove/p/YS2...
The old and slightly smaller model was $25
Looks like a rice cooker.
Don't see the point of this. Creating a problem which doesn't exist. Just use a microwave.
If it was battery or dc 12v powered on the other hand…
Yup why would I wait 2 hours when I can microwave in 2 mins…
Actually I read on Product review it can be used for slow cooking. Bought one to test.
reheats cold meals to 75˚C in 2 hours, or frozen meals in 3.5 hours
good god, why did anyone think this is a good product?
It has 5 stars on Product review for some reason.
I have one of these from a recent (~3 mths) Harris Scarfe post and it's amazing.
+ Warms up quick
+ Can be plugged into AC so best for a desk
+ Makes no noise, omits no smell
+ Worth it for $8
+ Not hot to the touch
Do you have to empty whatever food you have into the insert? Or can it cook something in its own packaging or container? If I use it at work and have to then clean both the food container and heating bowl/thingo, seems kind annoying.
Separate containers, very little cleaning required. Not annoying at all.
is this completely sealed? If I put soup in it I am worried it'll slosh out on my commute to work.
I saw these at Harris Scarfe for $16, and they were all sold out. Bought 2, thanks OP.
Holy shit….. bought one due to this comment.
Genius. I'm buying one for this comment too!
harvey norman selling for same price
5 star reviews, this little unit works way better than any microwave! No more cold spots or crunchy bits, it defeats microwave in every aspect and price.
Heats up fast, sturdy, easy to clean and portable what else could you ask for $8, they used to be $60+
Is price not an aspect?
And it doesn't defeat a microwave on the speed aspect.
it defeats microwave in every aspect
it defeats microwave in every aspect
I mean…apart from time?
$5 in my local Harris scarfe
Had to think of a reason to buy one. Maybe it'll be good for heating up can soup at work.
Is this sold out? I keep adding to cart but it goes nothing is in there :(
Damn it, had a couple in my cart but thought I'd check with the wife first, and sure enough, sold out when I get back to it.
As above HNs have it with free click and collect.
Lifesaver, thanks! Wife has had one for a couple of years now and loves it, so buying a couple more for spares!
I think my favourite thing about this site is how people will buy any old piece of crap just because it's a bargain, entirely negating their reason for being on the site in the first place!
"What are you gonna do with jousting sticks?"
Things like this as random gifts are great. Receivers are like "oh wtf, thank you so much, you were totally thinking about how I can improve my daily lunch time routine, how thoughtful".
I agree, 'oh wtf' would be my reaction to receiving this :P
2 purchased from Harveys C@C … thanks OP.
Some people really dont understand the handyness of this. Put your food in the container leave the warmer at work/desk. Put food in warmer when you get to work turn on as well then eat at lunch. Food is heated all the way through. It beats a microwave in all aspects. No queuing up no scolding parts with other areas cold eat straight away without it burning your mouth.
Seriously the dumbass comments like oh it takes 2hrs are stupid. Turn it ON when you get to work its a warmer not a cooker.
Or I could just use a microwave like normal people.
They're cheap for a reason…
OH No, I've missed out on this amazing product. Said no-one ever
You could heat the food at work, before end of work and bring it home for dinner. Save electricity.
Now that's a true spirit of a Ozbaraginer, do that for a year and save thousands:
Nah, I'd rather keep my dignity.
