Re: What Do You Do For Kosher Food While Traveling?
Most hotels will give you a microwave upon request.
This might be somewhat "off thread" but I heard from Rabbi Shusterman (CA) (and others have told me they have been told this as well b'shem other Rabbonim) that to kasher a microwave is not as acceptable as some indicate. See the link below where you can see kashering a microwave is not as simple as sticking in a cup of water  and turning it on for a bit and then moving the cup and turnining it on again. http://oukosher.org/passover/articles/kashering-microwaves-and-dishwashers-for-passover/

Either way Rabbi Shusterman told me it was inadvisable. To the best of my knowledge if the food is double wrapped this is can be used even in a non-koshered microwave correct?

Now as far as burners go, Dan mentioned earlier the cheap ones would be just fine to heat up your food. Would 1000 watts be enough to cook effectively as well?
If it is what do you suggest between these 2 below

or is this one below really worth the cost.

And what about a double burner for maybe having putting up milchig/pareve things as well? Suggested or is that just not worth having to shlep around?

Re: What Do You Do For Kosher Food While Traveling? If your quote is correct in being the din lichatchila what did you mean by
IF there's no mamashus then standard keilim aino ben yomo


So if you get your microwave dirty, you can still assume that it wasn't used in the last 24 hrs
So you mean even if there IS mamushus, stam keilim einim ben yomo.
I don't have access to a shulchan  aruch at the moment, but this certainly requires very close examination if this can be done lichatchila.

Either way double wrapping is still the only "safe" way to do it IMO. And let me ask this, how can you be sure you fully clean out all mamushus from those little vent holes? I'm asking this on a very practical level... I'm guessing This is why you will find certain authorities who won't allow kashering it at all, as for all practical purposes if you accidentally leave a little bit of mamushus, you would have a hard time making it pagum (a position many rabbonim will not allow you to do). You'll notice how they word it here http://www.star-k.org/kashrus/kk-TheTravelersHalachicGuidetoHotels.htm

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
USA Buying Group is by far the biggest and has the most capital. Never have they asked you to hold a check like Onyx or other groups.
Never had  a request by onyx/MYS to hold up on cashing a check. I always get paid right away by the pickup driver and they have a really simple and organized new website and makes keeping track or order history and payments a breeze. Driver actually scans in the items in my home and in my account it shows right away which pickup had which check tied to it. Those of you who do this for buying groups know how helpful that is.

Money does come right away and I have swiped plenty for them. Not sure what these other folks are talking about...
