The Non-Electric Slow Cooker
The Wonderbag is a simple, revolutionary non-electric, heat-retention cooker that allows food that has been brought to a boil, to continue cooking after removing the food from the fuel source. No plugs, no batteries, no connections. no fuss…totally non-electric. Heat-retention cooking is an age-old technique and Wonderbag’s fun and unique design is 21st century. It continues to cook food that has already been brought to the boil by conventional methods. Sealing the pot placed in the Wonderbag creates a slow cooking process.
The Wonderbag was initially designed for developing countries where energy is precious. Since the inception of her company, founder Sarah Collins of South Africa, has hired over 2,000 women in Rwanda to sew Wonderbags. When a Wonderbag is purchased, another will be donated to a family in rural Africa, where more than a half-million has been distributed.
With a Wonderbag you can cook nearly any slow-cooked recipe such as stews, chili, rice, grains, soups, steel cut oatmeal and more. And it’s easy! To kick-start the cooking process, food is heated in a pot on the range or cooktop, brought to a full boil, and then the entire lidded pot is simply placed in the Wonderbag, which is tied up tightly by simply pulling the fabric together. The food will slow cook for up to 6 hours and stay warm for up to 12 hours. It follows the cooking principle low and slow, and will not burn. It is portable, and perfect for sharing with neighbors, great for potlucks or outdoor parties, and best of all Shabbos friendly!
Yes, we think that this is a “Wonder-ful” new kitchen tool!
