Product Description

Product Description

What’s a Wonderbag?

The Wonderbag is a portable slow cooker that will continue to cook your food for up to 12 hours after simmering. Just bring your food to the boil on the stove, simmer as guided by the recipe, then place in the bag. It causes around 50% less evaporation than ordinary cooking so the food can’t burn or dry out - however long you leave it - and it saves precious time and energy. The Wonderbag is made from quality cottons that are tough and easy to care for. It comes vacuum-packed and requires friction to bring it back to life and then measures approx 45cm x 45cm x 25cm. It can be hand washed (or on a hand wash setting on your machine). It also doubles up as a cool bag and will keep ice creams frozen for up to two hours, and large frozen meal/bags of ice will stay frozen for up to 24 hours. Just like the cooking, the more you put inside the bag, the more you give it to work with. This makes a brilliant eco gift and kitchen accessory for men or women. Wonderbag will donate a bag to a family in Africa for every one sold on Amazon.co.uk.

Wonderbag Benefits in the Developing World

The Wonderbag Foundation donates bags in Africa where the Wonderbag can reduce a family's fuel use by up to 30% - saving money and easing poverty. The Wonderbag reduces CO2 emissions and harmful toxic fumes which means less respiratory problems and other diseases, particularly in children. There are fewer burns and fires in the kitchen, because stoves are used less. When less time is spent stirring a pot, time is created for child-care, education and other activities. Cooking in the Wonderbag means less evaporation occurs, so less water needs to be collected; saving time and spinal damage. 20% of all staple food in Africa is burned, due to pots being placed on open fires and unregulated stove tops but with the Wonderbag no burning happens. One simple bag, creating huge impacts.

Directions:
  1. Bring a pot of food to a boil and then simmer for a short period of time (will vary by dish type, see recipe booklet) being sure to get the lid hot too.
  2. Place lidded pot into the Wonderbag, place the cushion on the lid of the cooking pot and close the Wonderbag tightly.
  3. Let the Wonderbag slow cook to perfection for as long as you would otherwise simmer. The food is ready when you are.
  4. Open the Wonderbag, season and serve.
Condition Note:

The Wonderbag comes boxed and is vacuum-packed. It is essential to decompress the foam chips before use to restore their insulating powers. Take each section of the Wonderbag separately applying friction (fingertips) to the foam chips to soften them. It takes approximately a week for the creases to drop out depending on how often you use the Wonderbag.

Safety Warning

To speed up cooking time, cut ingredients into smaller pieces. Never put a pot that is over 180 degrees C into the Wonderbag. If you're unsure of temperature, place a potholder (silicone is best) in the base of the Wonderbag and put Wonderbag on a trivet when in use. Food should not be fall below 60 degrees C for longer than 2 hours before consuming or refrigerating. When in doubt, use a thermometer to ensure you food is above 60 degrees C.

Box Contains

1 x vacuum packed Wonderbag, with recipe booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love my wonderbag 15 Mar 2014
Have had it now for 3 weeks and its had lots of use, pulled pork shoulder, potatoes dauphinois, lamb tangine, chicken chowder .......... All kept lovely and hot (kept checking with the digital thermometer at first as I was rather sceptical) I'm a busy working mum so I can make supper earlier in the day when I've got time, stick it in the wonderbag and we have supper ready and waiting when we get back home, no more cranky kids waiting for food. As for the reviews that it's too expensive, it's beautifully made, far better than anything a could knock up, there's a great choice of colours (mine's grey and teal and very lovely) and a family in Africa get one for free which makes it a bargain in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy a wonderbag! 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase
The wonderbag is fantastic. I bought a 4 litre stainless steel stockpot to use in it. This works great for me though i have also used a 2 litre pot. I am super happy with the wonderbag for liver and onions (2 litre) , also rice pud (2ltr), biryanis, casseroles etc. I freeze the surplus for another day as i live alone so the wonderbag is great for all size families. It really cooks beautifully and i am sure you will not be regret buying one. Very simple to use. I put one tea towel inside another over the pot and my oven gloves on top of the tightened up bag. You will need them! Smashing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Wonderbag! 1 Nov 2013
By Mel H
I was first introduced to the Wonderbag last year and was given a sample to test in my role as a kitchen and cookware expert of some 35 years. I was intrigued on first seeing the product but without hesitation I can say that it is one of the most unique products I have tested.

The Wonderbag looks like a cosy cat bed, but when you enclose a casserole pot with lid inside, having started it off in the conventional manner on a hob top, it continues to slow cook your casserole for several hours WITHOUT electricity or gas!!!

Result? Beautiful succulent casseroles, with the minimum of effort, with far less expense on your fuel bill and gives you more time with family and friends, rather than toiling in the kitchen.

I also tested it to see if it really does keep food chilled - and no surprise that it does do what is says on the tin - so if you are travelling or want to use it when you are caravanning or camping, it works both ways - chilling and cooking.

It really is a Wonderbag and I would highly recommend this brilliant product and by buying this, you can also help a family in Africa, so everyone benefits!

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the money going? 11 Mar 2014
By PK
£60 for a very attractive cotton bag full of foam packing chips is a bit of a rip-off, and to describe it as a 'slow cooker' smacks of being positively misleading. As other reviewers have said, putting a hot pot inside an insulated container for it to carry on cooking is a method as old as time. I'd have given it one star [hate it] but can't be sure that it's actually a rip-off. Make your own and donate £60 to a suitable charity instead.

This is fab and has revolutionised life
I prepare the basics in the morning before school get it up to boiling and pop the pot in the wonder bag ! Amazing,no oven nothing it just cooks itself and when I get back in the evening after picking up from school there is a curry or sausage casserole waiting cooked and delicious, perfect.
You can add potatoes or rice at the beginning and then you literally have to dish it up when you get home at night

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brilliant! 9 Jan 2014
By Paul R
I have owned a Wonderbag for nearly two months now and it has changed how we eat as a family. 10-20 mins cooking in the morning and that's it! I have cooked paella, stews, roasts and curries in the bag and haven't had a bad meal yet. It saves a family like ours (3 small children) sooooo much time. I bought 3 as Christmas gifts and they were all very well received.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving my wonderbag 22 Jan 2014
I received my bag as a Christmas gift and immediately loved the idea of it, both using less electricity and letting my food cook itself while I was busy doing other things. Being someone, whose not great with instructions my first go was less than perfect, food was cooked but as I hadn't heated the lid for long enough before putting in the bag, veg was a little crunchy. 2nd time (having read instructions) and ever since I've has great results. I love using it twice over for soup, first to make the stock then to cook the soup. So far have used it only for some of my own faithful soups and stews but looking forward to trying some of the recipes provided.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit expensive for what it is 11 Mar 2014
An insulation cooker is not a new concept at all. During World War II, people would cook cheap cuts of meat by putting a simmering pot into a wooden box lined with hay or straw and allowing it to slow cook for several hours. It conserved fuel and tenderized the food.

This is just a glorified version of that. It's a neat idea but it's quite expensive considering that it's just cloth bag lined with some packing chips. As far as 3rd world use is concerned, I suspect they would be better off with a solar heater, or just the box filled with straw or some other locally sourced insulation material - grass, paper, wood, polystyrene etc.
