Nice to have a warm meal

Overall a good product. Takes a little bit longer than normal to warm food but, its nice to be able to have a warm lunch instead of a sandwich or fast food.

This product worked well, though the direction they give to you are not clear. The first time this was used both vents were covered and this product did not work well. After that I realized it may work better if the vents were not blocked by objects. And yes, it did.. So again, the product works fine, though a better instructions manual would make this product easier to use.

Wavebox Microwave

By
Location: Virginia
I read many reviews before I bought this microwave and 60% of the review said it is not very good. I took a chance because I am going on a trip and had an 12 months baby. I was surprise that it worked very well. It saved me dozen of times when the baby needs to eat or warm milk right away. The only problem is the missing cable. The manufacture won't reply email to Cabelas customer service but Cabelas had a very good customer service. They tried to help me many ways. Also, the warranty is short. It only warranty 6 months but the website said 1 year. So, if you travel a lot and have baby I recommended but if you have problem with it after few months then you might be in the water if you can't contact the manufacture because even Cabelas can't get answer for it. One more thing, the cirgarrette plug is a joke. It will take forever to warm up a cup of water but on the good side is that you have an option if there are no other option.

I work from my truck 5 X 9Hr days per week and this thing has changed my working life for the better. I can now heat up coffee on the job and have hot lunches, miles away from any town.
I had some trouble with the supplied cigarette lighter cable but Cabela's had a replacement sent fast and this has fixed my problem.
When I connect it using the direct Battery connection, it's nearly as fast as my home microwave.
I highly recommend this to anyone who works (or plays) in remote locations and needs some of the benefits of civilization.

This baby works great. You just need to remember to add some time to your normal cook time because of the much lower wattage than most household microwaves. If you use the plug-in 12 volt you need 20 amp wiring to the plug, which most vehicles do not have. It even comes with a little grill and it works great to cook hot dogs and heat the buns !
