I didn’t want to dwell on the past and just keep it current.

To be fair, the OP might just be wired differently than the rest of us.

I do feel a bit bad for OP after so many pages ridiculing what they wanted to do and no viable solution. So here is my pop. As has rightly been said several times, simply paralleling a few aircraft power outlets together is not going to work. They will not current share and will most likely harmlessly trip. Now these sockets are intended for laptops. Laptop power supplies come in various power ratings. My laptop has a 150W power supply and that sometimes trips the socket. I have another older one that is a 65W type and that was never a problem. One of the things with laptop power supplies is that they are isolated for safety. That works to OP's advantage as it means the outputs can be connected in series. A laptop PSU typically provides around 19V. Now six of them could provide 114V at DC and with 65W types a total of 390W.

Now enter the Dash DMW001H mini waffle maker. 120V/350W of waffle magic and just $12.64 at Amazon.


This machine is a heater only so it will run quite happily from the 114V DC supply. This little device weighs in at less than 1kg. I don't see that security would have much to complain about if OP has one of these, 6 laptop PSU's and a bit of terminal strip in their carry on. Even adding 5kg of powdered waffle mix should be OK if it does not look too white. OP could of course stuff a hot dog into it, but I would stick with the waffles. If BA's catering is to its usual level OP should be able to sell enough waffles to cover the cost of the kit and make a dent in the J/F ticket.

I guess the crew may be a bit difficult over a rival catering operation. OTOH, even they may not be able to resist a fresh waffle and they could always get a percentage...

Perhaps the OP is now "waffling" on this idea to cook onboard after so much time has elapsed and has decided to convert his/her energy to other endeavors? I do not know watt to make of this now

I think we’ve missed the bigger issue here. Will the ketchup and mustard be classed as liquids and not make it through security?

ketchup, mustard is liquid. However you can use the mini sachets so no issue at security.

I first started reading this because OP referred to taking a "warmer" on board and I thought he meant an electric blanket or throw. I would LOVE that since I am usually freezing cold on planes. Might look into that. That said, I hope OP posts his specific travel dates/times so I can avoid being onboard with him!!!

As a recent doctoral degree recipient, I have to link to an academic paper that's closely related to this topic - the Electro-Vlasic [1]. In this case, the heating of the experimental subject was incidental.
Sadly, this paper states that pickles heated using mains power emit an unpleasant odor.
I should mention that this paper was published 01/04/1989.

Airlines value Engineers more highly than Mathematicians?
