"The prizes we're giving away at the convention are identical to products we have personally used to save money on meals on the road. I am confident that the two drivers who win them will find them very valuable because they have enormous money saving potential when used systematically."

The first item being given away is a Presto® Kitchen Kettle™ valued at $25. The couple describes on their website how they have used this "hot pot" to prepare many meals in-truck. The box says that the Kitchen Kettle™ multi-cooker/steamer "Steams, stews, roasts, boils, deep fries and more."

The second item being given away is a 4-quart round Crock Pot® valued at $16. The couple describes on their website how a trucker can assemble foodstuffs in a slow cooker prior to a driving shift, properly brace it against being overturned in transit, select a heat setting, and let it cook a meal that is ready to eat some hours later after the driver parks.

Both A/C-powered appliances can be used in a commercial motor vehicle when plugged into an appropriate source of electricity. Mike and Vicki Simons powered their cooking appliances in-truck by using a battery-connected inverter.
