Then you take it to the cafe Graham and get it refilled ready for lunch ...

Always best to preheat them too ... i guess you know that though...

I've been doing that for years.
You mean a Southern Lunch ...... Used to have an excavator op do this regulary. He also used cook sausages on an open fire he built at morning break... tea time down south .... or breakfast.

Chuck a double calor burner in the motor and a 14" tefal fry pan. Has proved to be a very useful tool at times. using local produce of course.

This is getting so confusing now, tea time is when you get home. And breakfast is what you eat before you leave for work.

Hi Jordan


I have this one, the translator got the price wrong £ 21 is more correct

http://translate.google.com/translat...tbb=1&ie=utf-8



the first thing I do in the kitchen in the morning, is to fill it up with maximum hot tap water

And the last thing I do in the kitchen in the morning is to fill it up with my hot lunch

Doing it this way, can you still burn your tongue after 10 hours


I often have this with me and a frying pan, some bacon, eggs and tomato beans

http://translate.google.com/translat...tbb=1&ie=utf-8


it burns just about any flammable liquid. Gas, petrol, kerosene, diesel, jet fuel. Technical alcohol,+ + + + + +
I mostly use, four stroke environment fuel (miljøbensin, the Norwegian name) because it has the cleanest burning of everything I tried

and it delivers 3000 W



Below you will find some other Food thermos and some tests of it


this one looks handy with three separate containers

Are there any Scandinavian working practices that are not superior to the way we do things in the UK?

Didn't think so!

I've ordered a microwaveable one so I can cook my scrambled egg in it and pre-heat it at the same time! That's more efficient than a tiltrotator, that is!
