All in one electric cookers

We've been considering purchasing an all in one electric cooker for convenience and also as a cost saving move. They appear to be very versatile (such as the KitchenM8) and would operate from the electric hook up rather than eating away at the gas. Does anyone know whether the amperage is suitable for caravan use?

They look to be 1300 watts which is approx 6amps.  This should be ok providing the site supplies 10amps or more.  You might need to be carefukl what you use at the same time as this though to be on the safe side.

Many thanks for the replies, much appreciated! Mike, you've triggered a distant memory from my school days and I think I'm right in saying that watts divided by voltage = amps, so as you say, it should be around 6 amps. You make a good point about not overloading the circuit with other equipment, but we usually use sites with a 16amp supply, so should be fine. Time to go shopping I think, and after a while it will pay for itself by the reduction in gas usage!

Your recollection of basic electrical theory is correct but a more important question is the desirability of disadvantaging the many vanners who stay partially or wholly off EHU. from a manufacturers and second hand market perspective, eliminating gas for coking will inevitably reduce potential sales. Personally I'd be happy to swap my slow solid electric ring for gas. which would cost very little extra to run. There's a "but" though - for the fourth ring to be induction I'd pay more. I doubt that it'll catch on though because people would need induction friendly saucepans.

Its not likely to be cost saving long term swapping from gas to electric,all this will do is increase site fees as sites will be charged higher utlilty costs therefore they will need to be passing costs on.
