Default Whats fer lunch

I scored this MSR reactor from a local sporting goods store for 40$. Granted I had to clean the grease out of the gas valve to get it to work. It'll heat this whole can in 3-5 minutes. I swear I spend all my money on McDonald's, Burger King, Dunkin donuts and whatever else. I used to have an MRE once in a while but that was if I was reeeeeeeal desperate. This reactor is nice Does anyone else cook on the job?

Seriously looking into doing a microwave install. Eating out is such a waste of money.

I had one in the van for 6 yrs. batteries for the inverter are $$$ and really only last about 2. Honestly I didn't use it enough.

That thing is pretty slick! It's like an old school Jetboil. Hadn't thought of using one on a daily lunch break.

Very rarely do I eat lunch. The only time I take a break is when the guy I work for stops to smoke. When I'm working for myself I never stop until all work is done. I know it's not good, but usually I eat dinner and a snack later on.

When I do stop it's for a dog at the gas station or one of those $2 meal deals at Toxic He!!.

You mean this one? The reactor holds way more. They share the same gas cans though.

Yep! Have one in my BOB. Never had one of these guys 'till about three years ago. As a teen I'd head off into the woods for a week or so with really basic stuff. .22, knife, fishing line and hooks, tarp if it was going to rain, bed roll, couple cans of beans, a pack, flash light and waterproof matches. I miss those days.

You got me thinking... What does a drain cleaner do with a 14' box anyway? I already have electric ran. This stove is from my master's house which we converted from lp to ng Tuesday. Might as well have a fresh home cooked lunch right! ( ignore the ladders and hose... Not sure where I want them yet.)

That's awesome! I'd make frozen pizzas everyday. I got this one, runs on Mapp/propane. My brother has the oven. Whatcha cookin?
I used to butter my bread in The morning and put it in a plastic grocery bag for grilled cheese. Haven't done that in a while.

In all honesty it's going to the scrap yard, but the thought did cross my mind. It works but not the igniter. I might post it on craigslist for $50, get more for it. I hate scrapping these days, but if i'm driving by there anyway....
