View Full Version : Tea Kettle in Airbus Cockpit

Hi All,
I enjoy nice coffee and would love to hook up a little electric tea kettle to boil my water vs that crap that comes out of the belly of the jet.

Has anyone tried this and lived? Cafe fifi?


....Come to think of it a george forman grill would be cool too, for those long transcons... But that's another thread.

There is a little electrical computation regarding amps,volts and watts.

Right from the start there is a wee bit more draw than a cellphone charger that you might think about before plugging in.

The 16oz model is the one I bought from Amazon, it'll keep coffee hot for 8+ hours. Buy a good cup of starbucks or whatever, lock the cup and throw it in your flight bag. 5 hours later during your redeye pop it open and it's just as fresh as when you bought it.

You can find them on amazon for around $23 or so.

Preheat it with hot water for a few minutes and it will last even longer.

While few of us are exactly by the book, it seems common sense to simply follow the rules so as not to adjust for a line check. Would you plug in a coffee maker on a line check?

Ever since the ovens were removed from all the airplanes at my airline (for weight savings), I have heard of multiple employees bringing a mini personal portable oven, such as a HotLogic unit that costs about $39 at Amazon.

They are the size of a small lunch box, and surely could be used to heat water. It is basically just a small electric hot plate in an insulated soft sided cooler. For that matter, Amazon has small personal hot plates in the $20 range.

Do I approve? I'm not sure, but the flight deck sure smelled good as my flying partner's meal warmed during the flight.

Iíve seen this several times as well. It takes a while to heat the food up, I donít think these things have enough juice to boil water.

The only way to go is a George Foreman Grill. Fits in the compartment next to the FO and plugs in near the circuit breakers in the Airbus. On a transcon I marinate raw chicken from a slaughter house in Queens with packets of lemon juice and honey I get free from the coffee shop at JFK. Two hours is good (use the trash bag provided by inflight).

We recently installed hot mitts for the purpose of moving PEDs that catch fire. I use those to flip the chicken after 10 minutes. The medical kit has a surgical blade for slicing in a diagonal pattern. I crumble up cheez its and place on top for garnish and added flavor.

We still don't know what happened to the Egyptian A320 out of CDG to CAI. The Egyptians claim bomb, but the French are saying they were looking closely at footage of the aircraft pushing back at the gate with the FO's iPad and iPhone placed right under the FO windshield. If you touch that, it's usually pretty hot when the sun is around.

some of you guys need to lighten up. I'm pretty the OP was trolling you up, but I wouldn't be surprised if it happens. Where I work the contract does suck (we're working on it), but I'm sure I can swing a thermos. Doesn't solve the meal issue. The no first class airlines are never going to have hot meals because there are no ovens. And let's face it with narrow body flying getting longer and longer it's no surprise guys are finding ways to avoid eating blue chips, pretzels, and cheezits as a meal.

The Airbus Cockpit is pretty big. Iffen you don't have a jumpseater, you can get both a meal and dessert with this little all-in-one setup. Best done below 10,000 feet so you can crack a window for the smoke. You know, the same way you make it safe to smoke with a baby in the car.

Anyone else ever heard of doing this?

I Could just see billy mays in a infomerical for some portable grill or oven saying HI BILLY MAYS HERE FOR THE COCKPIT CROCKPOT. IT EVEN COOKS AT 40 THOUSAND FEET IN THE AIR!! Just put it on the jumpseat, plug it in, and in just minutes you can enjoy a plane cooked meal just like you would at home. It easily plugs into the 110v power outlet in your in cockpit power system. With enough food for all the flights you fly you will save hundreds on food and never buy airport food again!!

BUT WAIT THERES MORE!! ORDER NOW and ill include the minimums mini fridge!!! Small enough to stow under the jumpseat while large enough to store all your favorite drinks. Just put it under the jumpseat and plug it into the 110v power outlet in your cockpit. For airbus flyers it even comes with a european LEMO adapter which you plug into the jumpseat headset jack for power. With minimal power draw and a LEMO adapter you can enjoy a cold minifridge up front while the folks in back say WE HAVE NO GALLEY POWER!! BOTH the cockpit crockpot and the minimums minifridge are STCd/TSOd and approved for flight. If needed, our customer service staff can get your airline an FOM exemption for in cockpit use. So order today and enjoy a tasty in flight meal tomorrow!!

Ok now what your gonna wanna do it plug in the oven, now this takes ALOT of power when you use it so we will need to run it off the APU generator. Just like a campfire only instead of a fire its an APU driven oven and instead of sticks and kindling its Jet A. It preheated during sterile so by the time we get to FL320 that chicken will be ready to serve. And for descent we have a lemon meringue pie which should be ready by the time we hit TOD.

Its the new smoke generator in the sims. Instead of an inflight fire, the cake gets overbaked and starts smoking sending sweet sugar fumes into the cockpit. The only way to put it out is to use a extinguisher on it. Also DONT try to change the lightbulb heating element as you may burn your hand and it triggers the "electrical arcing in the cockpit" LOFT scenario.

If the breaker is popping its for a reason. If you plug in the waffle maker and tape the breaker closed it will cause a fire. Do you want the NTSB report to say "A wafflemaker was found in the cockpit plugged into an outlet with the circuit breaker taped closed. The breaker did not pop as heard on the CVR as other breakers popped during the onboard fire."

But how does he smoke brisket without charcoal? I find if you shove the grill inside the PBE it leaves a nice smoke ring after about 6 hrs. Ready by the time you get to Madrid. I know, commuting with a 35 lb bag of charcoal is a hassle but saving my per diem makes up for it.

Would I kid you? He puts down Aluminum foil to keep things safe, and even keeps the fire extinguisher and PBE ready to go in case he gets flare-up. I suggested going down into the avionics compartment due to the increased ventilation down there, but was over ruled. Next week I'm bringing a propane-fired deep fryer so we can start perfecting a turkey recipe for Thanksgiving.....we're gonna feed the whole plane.

Take this for what it's worth, but flew with a jumpseater who claimed to know someone who used to fly for a Middle East carrier. He said during a flight during the peak of Hajj season, the crew smelled something strange. The capt told the f/o to go back and check it out. He found some gentlemen roasting a goat on an asbestos blanket. Said it tasted pretty good.

I have seen first hand people carrying chickens under their arms before boarding their flight in Islamabad International...

Chickens are nothing. Common in Central America on those DC-3s that still fly.

What gets my goat (no pun intended) is not so much the reaction I get from my emotional support lion I bring on board. It is the double take of the FO when I bring my seeing eye dog on board.:eek:

After this diversion off the rails, you may now return to the Food Channel competition on the flight deck.

There was a Hajj 1011 that made an emergency landing due to onboard fire. Many died when the doors wouldn't open.

It's either this or crew meals.
