Better Living through Electricity

One of the real chores to working and living in a temporary semi-primitive setting is the cleanup involved with cooking.  Without a sink and hot water handy, you have to heat water on the camp stove, and wash things in a plastic bin.  Then you have to pour heated water over the dishes/utensils to rinse them, all the while trying to conserve water, so you don’t have to heat more up.

We had tried using a 1100 watt microwave before with our generator, but due to the length of the extension cord, the voltage drop was too much, and the microwave didn’t work unless we plugged it directly into the generator.
