RoadPro Portable Stove:
Reviews from Professional Truck Drivers

The RoadPro Portable Stove is a 12-volt-powered device that can be used to cook food in a big truck. This product is sold in many truck stops, usually in a cluster of other RoadPro products, as shown at right.

You can see that we have highlighted the photo of the display with a lime green box to show the part of the shelf with two stoves on either side of replacement aluminum pans.

While we have personally used 12-volt cooking devices in the big trucks we have driven, we have never used this specific product before. The photo below shows that potential customers show great interest in this product.

RoadPro Portable Stove front panel.

According to the information on the box's front panel:

  • This unit is "The Ultimate 'Lunch-Box'";
  • It "Plugs Directly Into Your Cigarette Lighter Socket!"
  • It is used to "Prepare a Meal or Use to Keep Pre-Cooked Food Hot!"
  • The user can "Unplug and Take with You, Stays Warm for Hours!"

This is a display of the disposable aluminum pans that fit down inside the RoadPro Portable Stove.

The boxed portable stove may or may not have aluminum liners included. After use, these can either be thrown away or cleaned and reused.

Three comments about the Aluminum Pans for the 12V Portable Stove - Pack of 3Aluminum Pans for the 12V Portable Stove - Pack of 3:

  • One user whose comment we saw online said that the pans do not nearly fill the interior space of a 12V portable stove (they're too small), although it looks like a good fit in the photo below;
  • Another user said that lining the aluminum pan with aluminum foil will increase the pan's life; and
  • Truck stops sell these replacement liners at slightly higher prices than you can buy them for online and in some grocery stores.

We wish that we had taken photos of other panels of the box, such as one that includes a list of the specifications. Since we did not, we refer you to another online source (trusting that it is accurate) for this information.

View of RoadPro Portable Stove closed. View of RoadPro Portable Stove open with aluminum pan. The photos here (courtesy of, through whom we have an affiliate relationship) show the unit closed and latched at left and open with a disposable pan inserted at right. has at least two different listings for this product as shown here. We can't tell any difference between them except the price. The price of the unit in the truck stop as shown in the photos above was $34.99. (It may have changed since then.)

The features of the unit on the right as listed on as of this writing (February 2012) is:

  • Powered from Your Vehicle's Cigarette Lighter Socket
  • Insulated Design Keeps Food Warm While the Outside Stays Cool
  • Cooks and Warms Food to 300°
  • 15 Amp Fused 5.5' Power Cord
  • 90 Day Limited Warranty
