Now, I would have to admit, over the years I have purchased numerous kitchen type gadgets for the motorhome with very little success. They always look so good when they are being demonstrated (cheese grater – used it once, threw it away, bacon grilling thing that worked on a hob – used it once – in a box in the motorhome garage somewhere and trust me, the list goes on).
So, having chosen not to have a conventional oven in the motorhome (see this blog) and only a Dometic Microwave Grill we really did want something that would enable us to make great meals easily and so we happened upon Mr D’s Thermal Cooker – and we love it! It literally does what it says on the tin (stainless steel actually). In simple terms, whack in the ingredients for a soup, a chilli or a casserole into the internal pot and heat it on the hob. After it is thoroughly hot right through, place it in the container, close the lid and after 3 to 4 hours (or longer if you wish) your meal awaits.
Basically, it is a slow cooker but no additional electricity required. It loses about 3 degrees centigrade per hour so after 6 or 7 hours your soup is still piping hot. There is a cook book for a variety of sweet and savoury recipes and a series of You Tube videos but if you can use a slow cooker then you already know what you are doing. Highly recommended and more detail at this link.
