Wonderbag? All round “sense making”?

Change life, practical, environmentally friendly, and economically sensible…?

Just a heat-retention cooking bag.

Wonderbags in action

What is a Wonderbag?

A Wonderbag is an insulated bag in which people can cook anything from meaty stews and vegetable curries to simple rice and soups.

You kick-start the cooking process by heating your pot of food on the stove, then simply place it in the Wonderbag.

Wonderbag’s clever insulating properties allow food that has been brought to the boil to finish cooking while in the bag. This greatly reduces the use of additional energy.

This means families can cook appetizing, hot meals while saving energy and money.

It also means less time tending to the cooking food. Now time can be better spent looking after children, earning an income or doing essential chores.

And because the Wonderbag is unplugged, your free time will also be worry-free!

Heat-retention cooking is an age-old technique and wonderbag’s fun and unique design has brought it back into the 21st century!

The slowed cooking process, combined with sealing the pot in the Wonderbag, ensures the flavours and nutrients are retained inside the pot – not evaporated into thin air.

Less time in the kitchen…
more time for family and yourself!

Wonderbag has many benefits…

  • It can reduce a family’s fuel usage up to 30% (saving money and easing poverty)
  • It reduces CO2 emissions
  • It reduces toxic fumes, (like what fumes?) which means less respiratory problems and other diseases, particularly in children
  • It reduces accidents in the kitchen, because stoves are used less
  • It reduces time spent cooking, giving more time for child-care and other activities
  • It saves precious water. When the pot is insulated in a Wonderbag at a fairly constant temperature, less evaporation occurs, so less water is needed
  • It saves food. 20% of all staple food in Africa is burned, due to pots being placed on open fires and unregulated stove tops. With Wonderbag, no burning occurs

We’re not just about Wonderbags sold, we’re about Wonderbags used.
