Max Burton Stove on the Go model #6900
Being a professional truck driver, I need to use this product when at a place where no food stops are near and to save money on the road. With my points I can buy/replace these cookers at TA and Petro. My biggest complaint about your "products" have to be the dc male plug. They are all junk!! If I were not a dc authorized worker in the past and could not replace this end I would go through a stove every three months. It doesn't matter if you use the convertor or the auxillury plug, they always melt the cheap plastic end. Usually before the fuse blows! Try a different manufacture, this is stupid, and you can't make the thing any cheaper than it is. Also the coffee maker, I have to agree with the other drivers, use your points, it is the only way to get them, since you will be getting them frequently. The element always overheats and becomes a paper weight in a matter of weeks. I bought the new stove to go that is digital, same problem!! No difference in the end.
-----Response from Vicki:
Thanks for sharing your experience with the Max Burton Stove on the Go model #6900. We
are sorry that you've had problems. If the product reviews
we have received is any indication, you're not the only professional truck driver to have had problems with a 12-volt cooking product.
OK, you piqued our interest when you said
that you had been "a dc authorized worker". This indicates that sometime in the past, you worked on DC (direct current) products. This leads us to ask some questions:
* What does becoming this kind of worker involve?
* Can an average truck driver replace the bad / cheap / inferior plug on the unit?
* What kinds of tools
and supplies would a driver need to do this kind of work?
Yes, using driver loyalty or rewards program
points can be better than paying cash out-of-pocket for 12-volt cooking appliances. However, we maintain that the points on a driver reward card should be treated just like cash -- because they can be used to buy products (and perhaps services) just like cash. Why pay for something via any
means more than one has to?
You've also said that there is no difference between the digital and non-digital models of the Burton Stove to Go because of the end. We wish that someone would come out with a much better quality "melt-proof" DC end for products, and that consumer demand would require appliance manufacturers to install them on new products. Perhaps if enough professional truck drivers would speak up on sites like ours, together we might affect change that will help all of us.
Thanks again for sharing. Please write back with any additional thoughts you have on this subject.
We wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.
