The Wonderbag saves energy and time while improving health, by making cooking more efficient and environmentally friendly in charcoal-dependent rural communities.
The Wonderbag is a non-electric slow-cooker that enables food that has been brought to boil on a stove or fire to continue cooking for hours after it is removed from the fuel source. The insulating abilities of the bag allow food to finish cooking without the use of additional fuel. The solution is time-efficient, reducing the need for fuel collection, fire tending or stirring. Instead, time can be better spent looking after children, earning an income, or doing essential chores. Wonderbag enables families to save energy and money.
