Hello Gang,

I just learned about these devices (thermal cookers) and I did a search here and I didn't see any mention of them. Think of them like a crock pot type of device, but need only a fraction of the energy. It seems they are best suited for soups though.

They look like they would be a nice thing to have if power was an issue. It seems the best made ones are made by Nissan, see below link.

I think they come in different sizes?

What do you all think? Any one here have one?

Here is what I found on them. You have to cook the food prior to placing it in the Thermos. It may save a bit of fuel or be good for heat and take with, but not much more from what I can tell.

If power was an issue, how about a dutch oven? All you need is some good old cave-man fire.

I have a dutch oven that I would put into a hot box. The hot box keep the dutch oven hot and the food cooks all day long.

A Stanly Thermus works good for cooking. Place the boiling food into a widemouth thermus and close the lid. Let it sit all day and by evening you have a cooked meal.

Yes it is mostly soups and stews.

During the summer I can cook anything in my solar oven.

I think it has the potentioal to be something great to have. Say powers out your on a genny. In an apt. No way to build a fire. You cook food and have some mealS to last awhile with out haveing to use the Microwave or range so offten. Also you can keep some hot water for a while aswell.

Mr. Ed

Thanks for the heads up. Thermos SS Vacuum has been a very good consistant brand for us over the years. Holds heat better than any of the others.
