I just found out about the “Wonderbag” Powerless Cooker! It’s amazing. I’ve been through one hurricane that left us with no power for ten days, and I would have LOVED to had this then.

This bag can be used to cook for power outages, camping, tailgating, baseball games, picnics, family reunions. It’s easy…here’s what you do. Cook your food (in your own pot) until it comes to a boil. Then put the pot with a tightly closed lid into the Wonderbag. Close the bag. Let it cook all day! It’ll cook for hours (think pot roasts, pork loins, stews, chili, soups) and it can be used in reverse; to keep things cold too. Btw, see recipe on bottom for Chipotle Chili…mmmm.

AND… Powerless is Powerful – Buy One Donate One

Powerless is powerful. Wonderbag isn’t just a powerless cooker; it’s an instrument for change. 3 billion women still cook over wood fires, a major source of health, environmental and socio-economic issues. By drastically reducing time spent cooking, the Wonderbag empowers women across Africa to participate in more activities outside of the home enhancing their quality of life. Using the Wonderbag helps save water, reduces the carbon footprint, minimizes deforestation, smoke inhalation diseases and deaths. One Wonderbag per year saves 1.7 trees, 1000 liters of water and 1,248 hours of time not spent collecting firewood. For every Wonderbag purchased in the US, one is donated to a family in need in Africa.

I don’t have this yet, but it’s going on my WishList for Christmas. Comment below if you have one. Tell me how you like it. Also, if you want to check out the prices, or order one, click on the pictures.
