To my shame I have for a number of years been meaning to make a video to explain the workings of a thermal cooker and last week I eventually got around to it.
The video shows:
- the advantages of thermal cooking
- how a thermal cooker works
- how you save over £80.00 a year in fuel costs using a thermal cooker
- and comments from some people who use thermal cookers.

Mr D’ is interviewed about his Thermal Cooker
This week I was interviewed on The City Cottage Food Show about my Thermal Cooker. Paul Peacock whose site it is owns a Mr D’s Thermal Cooker and has used it very successfully for making cheese.
In the interview I talk about the history of the haybox and how it was used to cook food which differs slightly from the method used in a thermal cooker. I also explain about the huge savings that can be made using one by citing Sophie who uses her thermal cooker on a live board boat.
I do hope that the interview gives you a little more insight into the world of thermal cooking and the great savings that can be made which with the continuing rising of fuel costs can only be a good thing.

Morning all. Here is the latest update on Jubilant. they seem to have dropped back a couple of places but this seems lack of wind in their sails……so lets all blow together towards Lands End and hopefully it will get them moving up places.
A Message from Jubilant 15 hours ago: ”We are now south of Dartmouth but ghosting along looking for wind (and fighting an eastbound tide in 66 metres of water depth).Spirits are good and we are eating well. Thermal cookers being dutifully employed.Nigel,Gilberto and Armando currently on watch with Sophie, Martin, Gerry and Tony resting.
Satellite phone just re-activated so hopefully back in contact again.
Looking forwards to a SW breeze taking us to the Fastnet.oh and we’ve now reached the breeze ”
This is a snapshot from the live http://fastnet.rorc.org/2013-fleet-tracking.html site.

This will mean that hot food will be ready when the crew want to eat due to the huge window of time the cooker gives you and apart from bringing to the boil then needs no power to do the cooking.
If you cook for instance a chicken in the Mr D’s it can be eaten after 3.5 hours or any time up to 7 hours and the great thing is it will not burn, overcook or boil dry. Another great advantage on a boat is there is little or no smell or steam even if you are cooking something like a steak and kidney pudding.
