Requiring no external power source and using traditional heat-retention to cook your dishes, the wonderbag allows food that was brought to a boil by conventional methods to cook for up to 12 hours without any additional power or supervision.
The principle of retained-heat cooking is simple: in conventional cooking, any heat applied to the pot after it reaches boiling point is merely replacing heat lost from exposure to the open air.
In wonderbag cooking, food is brought to a boil, simmered for a few minutes, then placed into the wonderbag to continue cooking without a direct heat source. The insulated cooking technique prevents heat escaping from the dish, removing the need for additional energy to complete the cooking process!
For the days in the field or on the water, wonderbag cooking means you simply spend a short amount of time (15-20 minutes) prepping your dish, then once transferred to the wonderbag it does the rest. It removes the cook from tending to the stove or the fire. It also conserves precious fuel.
Imagine spending 15 minutes prepping pulled pork, placing the pot into a wonderbag and then heading out for the day to hunt or fish. Your pork dish will slow cook for up to 12 hours without any supervision, electricity or power. If mother nature changes your plans, that’s ok because the wonderbag will never overcook or burn as the bag is not on an external heat source. You can return to basecamp late, and waiting for you is a hot, perfectly cooked meal.

Innovation that is both money saving and planet loving, wonderbag’s insulation is created from recycled foam chips collected from furniture and car manufactures that would otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean.
*Take the bag out of the package and fully break up the recycled foam chips from each compartment of the bag. Give it a shake and you’re right to go. This will take about 5 minutes.
*You can place a simple dish cloth at the bottom of the wonderbag™ – your pot will sit on top of this.
*The bag comes with easy and delicious recipes, but can slow cook anything! It’s important to remember slow cooking using the wonderbag™ will not evaporate liquids like cooking over the stove or even with a traditional slow cooker, therefore requires less water, stock, wine etc.
*When cooking with meat/poultry/gamebirds, you simply brown this off first, then continue with veggies or other ingredients, place everything together, and once brought to the boiling point, the pot (with lid on) is placed in the wonderbag™
The New Cooking Revolution is Unplugged
Sarah Collins is the founder of wonderbag and a pioneer of change. Her tireless work promoting wonderbag’s environmental and humanitarian benefits across the globe, has seen her deliver a keynote address at the 2013 World Economic Forum in Davos; voted Top 10 most powerful women entrepreneurs by Fortune magazine, and recognized as one of Oprah’s African Heroines. Sarah has appeared on countless TV talk shows across the world and has travelled to many countries such as Rwanda and Jordan distributing the wonderbag to refugee camps. For every wonderbag sold in the developing world, one is donated to a family in Africa.
Its positive impact is amplified for the over 3 billion people who cook over an open fire in rural regions. Regular use of a wonderbag vs. cooking over an open fire results in:
60% reduction in deforestation
70% reduction in indoor air pollution
80% reduction in water used in cooking
