Tiffin ...
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:28:51 AM »
... I've recently acquired a tiffin as part of my touring gear and was wondering if anyone has ever used one for cooking in.

Ta muchly ...



Oh, a Tiffin??   What is a tiffin I hear you ask  :)



You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us, And we can cycle the world as one.

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man.
Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world...

How interesting! Never heard of one until I looked it up. Pretty much like a traveling "crock pot", isn't it?

Thats basically what it is.

I've tried and tested the one I have and it is just fine for cooking in.  Stainless steel so if I do manage to overcook (burn) something then it should clean out no problems at all.

The metal in these is basically as thick as my standard cooking pots, so there was very little learning curve to check for cooking in these.

I'm very pleased with them and shall start using them in anger in four days time.

This is good idea to cook food in tiffin as the food is nutritious, delicious to eat. The only difficulty is to clean it, but many good cleanser and wash bar are available which help to clean quickly.

Had no problems whatsoever with mine in the 330 days that I have been using it (every day). If, and I say IF, I do manage to stain the inside then I just rub in a little sand/grit with the cleaning water and it comes up spotless every time.

I highly recommend this item, and if you buy a multi layer one you can prepare more varied meals and store whats left over for eating along your way.
