Frequently Asked Questions

Personal + Portable Ovens

Does HOTLOGIC® cook evenly?

Yes. HOTLOGIC® uses conduction heating, which unlike microwaving, heats evenly—no overcooked meals. HOTLOGIC® evenly cooks or reheats fresh or frozen meals, meats and vegetables—even leftovers—without burning or drying food out. Say goodbye to over-cooked meals.

What food can I use in HOTLOGIC®?

Leftovers, frozen meals and cooking from scratch. Unlike a microwave, HOTLOGIC® will not dry out or burn your food.

  • Leftovers: Most leftover meals will be warm enough to eat in about 30-40 minutes but will stay at the perfect eating temperature for hours. Leftovers come out tasting as good or better as the first time! Don’t be afraid to plug your HOTLOGIC® in early, so you have your food ready to eat when you are.
  • Frozen meals: Simply place your meal directly on the HOTLOGIC® heating element, no need to remove it from the packaging. Allow 2+ hours for the meal to fully cook to a 165 degree serving temperature and enjoy. We guarantee that once you’ve had a frozen meal cooked this way, you’ll want to drop the mic(rowave) for good!
  • Cooking from scratch: Choose your favorite meat and/or vegetable, some seasoning and enjoy the most tender meat and wonderfully cooked vegetables you could ask for. Like a crockpot, just add your ingredients and go about your day. Allow 1-2 hours for the meat to fully cook. If frozen, allow 2+ hours. Always use a food thermometer to verify meat has reached 165 degrees.

Does HOTLOGIC® use buttons or dials?

No. HOTLOGIC® is an automatic oven. Just plug it in and go about your day. Your meal is ready when you are.

Will HOTLOGIC® keep meals ready to eat?

Yes, you can plug it in and go about your day. Once the meal is reheated, it will be held to a perfect temperature for you—that is not dried out or overcooked.

Can I boil water in the HOTLOGIC®?

No. The HOTLOGIC® never reaches the boiling point. This protects your food from being overcooked and losing its nutrition.

Can I use the HOTLOGIC® in my car?

Yes. HOTLOGIC® is a 120v product commonly used in cars and trucks with a standard power outlet or with an inverter for your cigarette lighter. Some models are available with a car plug.

What size inverter do I use HOTLOGIC®?

We recommend using a 150 watt inverter - it is universal for either the lunchbag or casserole units.

How do I clean my HOTLOGIC®?

Unplug your unit and allow it to cool to room temperature before cleaning. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners or abrasive scrub pads. Do not submerge the device in water. HOTLOGIC® is NOT dishwasher safe. Use a soft, damp cloth or paper towel and a mild cleaner (if needed) to clean surfaces. Do NOT spray cleaner directly on surfaces to be cleaned. Spray cleaner into a cloth, then clean surfaces.

What containers can be used in HOTLOGIC®?

You can use any flat-bottomed sealed container (cardboard, metal, plastic and glass). In addition, any dishwasher or microwave-safe container can be used.

How much power does HOTLOGIC® consume?

HOTLOGIC® mini/lunchbag+ uses 45 watts (.5 amps) and the HOTLOGIC® Casserole/Casserole+ uses 100 watts (.8 amps). HOTLOGIC® has low power usage, similar to a lightbulb, so it doesn’t waste energy. Units are UL Certified and won’t overheat or burn food.

How long is the Mini cord?

3 feet long. This makes it easy to plug into a desk outlet without needing powerstrips.
