Thermal Cooker A Great Energy Saver !
The first meal we made in our thermal cooker was lamb and vegetable curry it was so delicious. We thought about buying one of these when we travelled around Australia for 6 months in 2007 but couldn't justify $299 which they were selling for at the time. Well last year Aldi had them on sale for $79 but as we don't have an Aldi here in the West I asked my good friend Kerrie who had just moved back to Sydney if she would purchase one for me and send it over which she kindly did, she is an angel. I payed her for the thermal cooker and $25 postage so all in total it cost us $104 which I was very happy with. It will be great to use for when we go camping and at home, it saves our electricity. Its so easy to use you just need to bring the food to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes in the stainless steel pot, then you pop it in the thermal cooker leave for 3-6 hours to cook, it couldn't be simpler. Very Energy Efficient . I would recommend them to every one. They would be great for taking dishes to friends and family for get togethers. They can be used for hot foods and cold foods. I might give it a try for making yoghurt, also would be great for making porridge over night and eat in the morning for a large group of people. Ours is 6 litres you can buy different sizes. I will experiment with ours and let you know the outcomes. So far we have made only two meals and are very impressed so far. I'd love to hear from others who have one, what are your best meals you have cooked in your thermal cooker, please post and share them with us.
