Ive thought about the 12 volt crockpots that plug right into the cigarette lighter and having it in a cardboard box or bucket in the tow vehicle. These seem to use less power. You can put the food in it frozen and by the time you get to your destination its ready...Like this one:

Crock Pot on the Road

The majority of sicknesses relating to food safety are a result of the toxins the bugs release whilst growing. Cooking tainted food does nothing to remove toxins.

Yes, but it's preset, not adjustable.

Hi PammieSue,

I seem to recall that the Wonderbag can use up to an 8 or 9 quart pot no legs. I found it somewhere in a book or website but can't locate it now. The low end is 2 quarts I believe.

I use a flat bottomed cast iron dutch oven. I have used 2, 5 and 6 quarts. These are the biggest ones that i have. Those fit well.

The Wonderbag works well. I use mine as a pillow when not in use cooking.

It can also be used to keep already cold food cold for a while.

Katy

I have only used my pot once, PammieSue, and....as it was just me....I used about a 3qt pot. It worked just fine.

I want to try beans, perhaps a chili, but need a crowd to feed, so perhaps at a rally.

Martin, it doesn't sound like you're a candidate for one of these, and that is just fine, we don't need to try to convince you.

I haven't found a single thing about anyone getting ill or having problems with these doing what they are supposed to be doing. They are not a brand new item, they have been around for years.

I also sit on public toilets, drink the water at most campgrounds and am not afraid of the people at WalMart.

Everyone is allowed an opinion Maggie, and not everyone's opinion has to be the same - makes the world interesting.

I absolutely agree, Martin.

My opinion is that you are not a candidate for a WonderBag.

And, that is okay.

Like anything, read the instructions and you are OK. Don't make pea soup in a pressure cooker because if it spatters into the relief valve and clogs it, it may explode. So, don't be stupid. Otherwise, it's great.

You must have never used a slow cooker. Don't put tainted food in a crock pot or any pot. Then, your are safe. But, let's not worry that slow cookers are not safe. That is simply not true.

There is a significant difference between a slow cooker and a wonderbag. The first brings the food to temperature and holds a temp during cooking. The bag just slows the rate of cooling to give the food time to cook, but also any bugs present to grow. They aren't the same.

I have no issue if folks think otherwise, or understand the difference but still use them. However it is obvious some folks don't consider the difference and treat them as the same.

As I have said, the issue for me isn't the ability to cook the food; that is clear and proven (although bringing a pot to the boil and then removing and wrapping in some towels would retain enough heat to do that, of course it wouldn't have a 'cool' name and get folks to buy a new gadget). The issue is that as they cool, they cook at a temperature below that which bugs can grow, if people understand that and manage it then fine.
