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.

Very pleased with this non-electricity slow cooker. Have made three delicious meals, two from the supplied cookbook and one of my own. All worked well. However because it relies totally on insulation to retain the heat from the initial simmering, the food is not piping hot after the suggested four hours cooking. That is easily remedied by popping the casserole dish back on the hob for a few moments. I bought an oxtail from the butcher and cooked that; oxtail needs a long slow cook. After four hours it was still not tender enough so I brought the dish back up to simmering for five minutes then popped it back in the Wonderbag for another four hours. That worked well. So a bit more experimenting is needed to get things just right, especially when you are used to a conventional slow cooker. Glad I bought this which is going to be used on our narrowboat and save us gas usage. Would recommend but be prepared to learn from using it what works and what doesn't.

I don't think it cooks stews that well I find I need to cook food a lot longer than suggested before using bag and the food is not that hot when ready to serve

Great product... We borrowed this from a friend whilst we travelled in our camper van, saves gas and makes scrummy meals. Had to purchase one for ourselves. Easy to wash and store due to the canvas fabric. And most importantly it really does work, although my recipe book was missing from the delivery!

I took one of these out to Senegal to try out. I have only tried vegetable based stews at the moment but so long as you get the pot piping hot and ensure that it is full with 5-10 minutes simmering time, the pot will be just as hot when you take it out of the bag 3 hours later...and the vegetables are nicely (but not overly) cooked. You could use this anywhere and I thoroughly recommend it for vegetable based stews - I haven't tried it with fish or meat though.

The Wonderbag is awesome. Casserole dishes are cooked to perfection by dinner time. A lot better than when they simmer for a couple of hours. Vegetables are not mushy and meats are so tender. And the savings on energy bills are considerable too. In short, a great product!
