A favorite tool


I've had mine for several years, and continue to use it for all soups and stews. Doesn't heat up the kitchen, makes fairly large recipes, and the recipe for beef stew in the accompanying booklet is the best I've ever eaten. I've gifted several to friends.More > < Less


Great item.


A strange looking item. But an extremely useful one. Keeps things remarkably hot for hours. I have yet to try cooking in it, but will soon. The best part is you’re funding the wonderbag foundation in Africa.More > < Less


Great Insulator


Just got this a couple weeks ago. Got this to help insulate the sous vide, but we also used it to keep baked beans hot for a picnic. It almost worked too well, as the beans were still too hot to eat when we took them out. Oops.

I can't attest to its effectiveness as an actual cooker, but as an insulator it's great.

Works just like you said it would. I love it. Next time is corned beef.


Instant hit Love it!


I cooked the best stew of my life with this bag. I am looking forward to bringing nice hot meals to the lake to enjoy with my family. I cookI cook with propane, normally the stew I made would simmer for hours, by using the bag I reduced my cook time on the stove 75%.
It is also a fantastic conversation starter.
It travels well and is easy to handle, no more excessive bundling to bring hot casseroles and stews to functions.
I just love it.

How do you slow cook with cloth?

About wonderbag.

Cloth Cooker

This insulated bag is actually a portable slow cooker. It uses heat retention and a fraction of the energy to cook your food while camping, at picnics, or even just a dinner party.

Start the cooking process like you usually would, by bringing your soup, stew, or other meal to a boil. Then remove the pot from the heat and place it inside the wonderbag. The insulation will let it keep cooking without any additional electricity or fuel.

Maker Sarah Collins is based in South Africa, where some people—particularly women and children—spend a huge amount of time gathering wood for cooking and heat. The effort it takes keeps them out of school and work, and the fire has various health hazards for the people cooking. Sarah created wonderbag as more than just a cooking accessory, it’s “a catalyst out of poverty.”

When you buy a wonderbag, you’re also helping fund the wonderbag Foundation, which is committed to giving more families in need access to an easier, safer, more environmentally friendly way to cook.
