Thermal Cooker

Today I won a Shuttle Chef on ebay for less than half its commercial value. I’m pretty excited about it! I’ve been wanting another one for a while now, especially since I am a major crockpotter! There are some recipes and a thermal cooking community over at The Thermal Cook, complete with videos! In case you have no clue what this little baby does, imagine a crock pot without the cord, or tether as I call those cords that suck power. It is like a modern haybox method of cooking - the food cooks within its own heat. You do have to first bring to a boil all the ingredients in the main pot, but then you just drop that pot into the cooker, seal it up and let it sit. Because it cooks in its own heat, food never burns. Here are all the techie details!
