An in-dash oven for warming food

Pull up to the gas station pump, insert your credit card, and select a soup, sandwhich and coffee from the vending machine next to the pump.

Throw your food into a small door in the dash. This chamber draws heat from your 200+ degree engine to warm up the food. A temperature guage lets you know when the food is ready. Open the door and chow down!

I guess great minds think alike. Or something. [DrCurry, Jul 11 2005]

       Seems good to me, in theory at least. There'd be problems with the driver having to see to the food while talking on the phone, doing their hair and overtaking a truck; if this possibility could be excluded then the world would be a safer place.   

       This isn't the first time I've seen the phrase "chow down". It's definitely US-only; does anybody know its origin? It doesn't seem to bear any resemblance to any similar phrase. You wouldn't say "eat down" or "munch down"; anyone shed some light on how it has arisen?

       One can keep food very hot by just placing atop the defrost vents. I know, I've done it. Steamed up the windshield a bit but worked so well I was quite amazed.

       Chow;   

       Etymology: "Possibly from Chinese (Cantonese) gou (dog.)" -- The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition   

       So, conclusively, Chinese restaurants do in fact serve dog. Who's up for some 'chow'?
