An alternative cooking method worth having
I must admit that I just heard about this wonderful thermal cooker from Saratoga Jack a few weeks ago. A thermal cooker is a slow cooker that uses zero electricity. All you need to do is bring the contents to a full rolling boil for four minutes. Next, you put the lid on the pan and place it inside the thermal cooker and lock the lid in place, then off you go for the day’s activities.
Saratoga Jack Thermal Cooker Giveaway
We are really excited today about our thermal cooker giveaway! We are a group of bloggers who like to show our readers how to use different preparedness items. This Saratoga Jacks Thermal Cooker works very much like a slow cooker. It comes with two stainless steel pans with one lid that fits right inside the thermal cooker. You can use this for either hot foods or cold foods.
Just a note, frozen meat or frozen foods will not work in this. The meat must be totally thawed.
1. Bring To A Full Boil
The first thing you do when you decide what you are going to make is decide if you will use one or both of the inside pans. Let’s say you are making soup. First, you brown the meat, add the broth, vegetables and bring it to a full rolling boil. You need to make sure the liquid in the cooker is within one inch of the top. If you use both pans you will add enough liquid to be level with the bottom of the upper pan. In order for this thermal cooker to work it must be full.
2. Boil Four Minutes
Next, boil the liquid, vegetables and meat for four full minutes. At the end of four minutes, quickly put the lid on and set the pan with the lid inside the thermal cooker. Put the thermal cooker on the counter top or in your car. These work great for ballgames, sporting events, family reunions or everyday meals. It uses zero electricity after the four minutes of boiling.
So you can “cook” your meal for 5-6 hours while on the kitchen counter, in your car or on vacation trips.
3. Use It To Keep Salads Cold
Another awesome feature about a thermal cooker is the fact that it will keep foods cold for four to six hours. This is what you do, make your salad the night before you need it. Place the salad inside the stainless steel pan with the lid. Place the pan with the lid in your refrigerator overnight. I would leave the liquid salad dressing off or the salad will be soggy. In the morning, quickly put the pan with the lid inside the thermal cooker.
Now you have a refrigerator/cooler to use while you are out or traveling.
The Saratoga Jacks Thermal Cooker website has great ideas, recipes and much more information.
You can find out more about this product from my friend Linda at Food Storage Moms, she’s used the cooker herself and gives an in-depth alternative cooking tutorial on her website.
