Let's Make Sense of Thermal Cooking
What is a Thermal Cooker?
The term "thermal cooking" simply means "cooking with heat." Thermal cookers are cooking appliances that cook by retaining heat.
Thermal cookers work like slow cookers, cooking food slowly over time. While slow cookers require constant electricity, thermal cookers utilize heated food to complete the cooking process.
What is all the hype about trapping heat to cook your food? Thermal cookers are portable, quick, and convenient. They save energy, are simple to use and easy to clean, can retain both heat and cold, and trap nutrients and flavor inside.
The first step in retained heat cooking is to bring food to a boil. The pot of boiling food is then placed inside an insulated thermal unit. The food will continue to cook as the temperature of the food slowly drops over time. The result, when done correctly, is food that will maintain safe-serving temperatures for up to eight hours.
Thermal cookers can be purchased or assembled using boxes, coolers, blankets, or pillows and a heavy pot, making thermal cooking accessible to everyone.
