A small one would be 600 watt at 220 v so at 12v would draw 50 amp hr and would boil a mug of water or equivalent in about a minute and probably defrost and reheat a meal serving in 10, two servings in 20. It might be ok if gimballed but the container needs to rotate to cook evenly. Bigger ones draw more but cook quicker, but the small one is fine, if as is likely you are not cooking large quantities. It seems most useful for defrosting which would hardly be a problem in the tropics, and for reheating.
