Good link to the review. Looks like they boiled water in about 2.5 minutes with about 1500W of power consumption; it has 10 power settings with the lowest using less than 200W. I would think a well cooked meal would probably be no more than 15 minutes at an average of 700W or 175 Wh. If you used no more than 50% of the 300Ah batteries you would have about 1,800 Wh - so you could get about 10 meals on one charge by my quick 'back of the envelope calculation.

I think it would fit my cooking needs without taxing the bank too much. Boiling water and making egg sandwiches is the most common daily use for me. Occasionally a simple dinner. It's not ideal for people boondocking and really cooking a lot as you won't have much left for fridge, fan, stereo etc.

I have Origo stove combo electric/alcohol and love it. Kenyon is another brand, alcohol is very popular in the boating world but never was accepted in the diesel/electric powered B-class and likely never will, too bad.

We have been using our induction daily since January. The smallest meal uses 10ah, 35ah would be average. It is not hard to use 50AH when cooking something more elaborate, or when boiling liquid. Cooking for more than 2 scales linearly.

An assumption of 175whr (15ah) is only realistic for small single pot cooking operations. Cooking pasta for 2 or 3 with 15 minutes of rolling boil will use at least 35ah. Note that rolling boil is not needed most of the time.

Does anyone know if the Revel comes with the MB H12 pre-heater option and the heated windshield? If it doesn't, can they be ordered as an option?
