You can't make a call on your cell phone while driving in many places today, but you can cook your meal with this 12V car microwave! Another sign of our time challenged society, the car microwave plugs into the cigarette lighter of cars to generate up to 660W power.

Not every car socket will do, however. It needs a car socket rated at 20A or higher. Also, the manufacturer's caution "It is advised that you start the vehicle prior to using the microwave to improve cooking times and prevent the car battery from becoming discharged."

This microwave really takes some juice to cook!

It costs £90 or $180 for fast food convenience. Stats for In Car Microwaves Trending: Older & Chilly
