    I love the purpose of this video. To shed light on a product that someone made to help others that need help due to the amount of resources they use and the health problems that come with it. I understand the second beef was used to try and stretch the boundaries, but I disagree with using this meat. The bag simply wasn’t made for hefty meats like that because people in less fortunate countries wouldn’t have access to that meat. Therefore, you guys using that meat and making it seem like the bag didn’t preform the job was a little disconcerting. The bag did the job it was supposed to do. It’s not made for hefty beefs like that.

    So amazing to share this! One of the big issues here in South Africa is that for a large number of people living in informal settlements, they cook over open flames in very densely packed living spaces, and this often leads to fires that destroy so many homes. That's also why the wonder bag is amazing and literally saving lives. 👏👏👏

    Is it not just a soft version of Thermos vacuum warm cooker or what we called in Chinese a "闷烧锅"? Unlike this one, the vacuum warm cooker or 闷烧锅 comes with its own vacuum container and a pot which you can put on to the stove heat it up and put the pit into the container. It's also electricity-free and looks more like something belongs to the kitchen. You guys should totally test this next time. Just search for "Thermos Vacuum Cooker" on Amazon its the first thing that pops up.

    I have learned from a few olf ladys the use of a sort of wonderbag. Especially it was used by farmers. yjey used a wooden box and some straw and a good thick pan to use as a cooking tool. In those days coals were used as heating scource. But when something has to simmer for a few hours they put the pan + food in a wooden box and coverd it with straw. And they put the box under the bed (great heating scource when it is freezing outside.)

    I'm no expert, but putting the lid on the very last minute will slow your cooking, you should let it boil under lid for a while so the air inside the pot also gets boiling hot, the pressure will then help cook it better.

    Here in Germany during and after World War II people had "cooking boxes", boxes that were stuffed with foam, newspaper and which ever insulating materials were to hand. The principle was the same, you started cooking something on a stove and then put it in the box for a couple of hours and the residual heat would do its work, so you would not have to use so many coals. It is great to see this idea having a comeback.

    My grandmother grew up with something working along the same lines (loosely translated as "cooking box") which is a massive wooden chest situated next to her stove stuffed with straw with indents for two differently sized pots. After been brought up to temperature the pots are being put into the boy and then covered with a massive pillow also stuffed with straw.

    You made an important error when you put a cold lid on that pot, it should have been brought up to the sa me temperature as the pot. Also maybe a small increase in the time of boiling would produce a big effect, no need to go 50/50.

    This method is mostly used to to slow cook large pots of traditional meals like porridge or stew here. You can use a regular winter down duvet or lots of wool blankets just as well. Or in summer, just bury the pot - anything that thermally isolates the cooking vessel. So my first thought was along the lines of oh, yet another unnecessary single use kitchen gadget. Why not just teach people the cooking method (and do people who cook over fire really not know about this)?

There is a severe wealth gap in the country, and while some live with full houses in the cities, there are millions who live in destitute conditions. The Wonderbag is great for those who like to cook over fire for fun, sure, but how much work and resources it saves greatly helps those who need it most! Great video, guys!

    There is an amazing series done by the BBC called The Wartime Farm.

The farmers wife could then do all the other things around the house while dinner cooked itself without using the highly rationed cooking fuel.

    Well since it's insulating it just stops the drop in temperature from happening (or rather it massively decreases the temperature loss) - it's not like you keep raising the temperature of something in the oven, you just counteract the loss of temperature by keeping it heated. So essentially an oven would keep the heat, the wonderbag allows a near no-loss heat (for a while) which would essentially allow for the same thing to happen. Just avoid thick-cut meats and such.

    I am quite astonish how you call it innovative gadget - like in my country (in middle Europe) it is really common practice among older women to put pot with just cooked food on bed and cover it with dulvet (filled with feathers) as an isolation. According to some, this is the best way how to cook rice - you do not cook it completely on the stove, but when it is partially cooked you put the pot with rice on bed and cover it with dulvet/pillow.

  • mhn7700

    I was really surprised to see that you (or at least James) seemed so completely unfamiliar with this concept. When I was a kid (more than 40+ years ago) my mum and all my friends' mums all made especially rice porridge this way: Before work, bring rice and milk to the boil while stirring occasionally. Then wrap the pot in a towel and stick it under the covers in bed. No need for electricity and constant stirring to keep it from catching on the bottom, no milk boiling over, and this way dinner was ready when we got home. Depending on when we ate, it may have needed a gentle reheat, but most times it was perfect eating temperature, ready for a knob of butter and cinnamon sugar :D To this day I only ever make rice pudding in bed, and so I was surprised to see that this method was so foreign even to chefs in a country that also eats rice puddings. You should try it in bed next time! By the way, I'm totally gonna try the chai white choco pudding cos it looked Divine. Anyways, good shout out about the Wonderbag donation. It's so heart warming to be part of such an amazing community.

    Okay Sorted-guys I just have to say your amazement amazes me. I fully acknowledge the importance of the Wonderbag and it is a very important invention. However this method of cooking is very old. Seriously it's hundreds of years old. I'm from Denmark and in Denmark farmers in the 17th century (and i'm sure it goes back further) would start up a porridge in the morning, after cooking it a bit on the stove they would put the porridge in a box lined with hay or straw (known as a haybox) and it would keep the porridge cooking and it would still be warm when it was served for lunch and dinner. Just like the wonderbag does, only difference being the wonderbag is portable (which is a total win). I can only imagine that this way of cooking existed in England as well. Hayboxes actually became more popular during WW2 in Denmark because of rations on gas. My point is, looking at the historical facts the wonderbag isn't a non electrick slow cooker. The slow cooker is an electric haybox, and the wonderbag is a portable haybox. I know you guys can't know everything, but maybe you should consider doing som episodes with some food historians. They might be able to teach you a thing or two about the history behind the dishes you cook and your ways of cooking.

Your assholish assumptions aside, should straight white cis men NOT talk about privilege? Does it throw you off when THEY do it first, rather than you spitting it in their face while they're doing a genuinely good thing for other people? Either you're a concern troll putting on some kind of social justice warrior parody, or you're genuinely being a jerk for no reason whatsoever. I'd like to remind you that this is a video about a fucking insulated slowcooker, which made hundreds of viewers donate thousands of pounds and said slow cookers to people in need, as well as buy some for themselves with the intent of conserving fuel use.

    *nerd rant please ignore* this has the feeling of one of those things that says it solves a problem but wont actually do anything for it. also the bag is just a good insulator? im sure there are already alternative methods that exist but dont have the popularity. plus these still require fire wood to cook. yes its not as long but how often do you cook food for 6 hrs? I understand where this is coming from but I need more research on exactly what this is/will do. how long do they last? how often can you ship them? how many time will they be used and does it actually do more than just provide really good insulation? to me the only real way to solve this issue is money. "money can't buy happiness" but it puts water in the taps and food on the table. the problem is not enough infrastructure and you need money to build that. you want to solve the issue give money directly to the people who would build the infrastructure. also does it do what it says it does. actually slow cook the food? try a recipe before putting it in the bag is it under cooked? try leaving a recipe in a regular crock pot that has been heated up and then turned off and the same recipe in the wonderbag. or DIG A HOLE and put the covered pot in the hole and cover it back over with dirt. which one cooks the food faster, cheaper, and better. there seems to be many different ways to achieve what this does. please don't take this the wrong way i understand what they are saying but there is always more to the picture than just that. i am genuinely curious and would like this info. If the wonder bag works for you great but i dont think its solving the intended problem. someone below mentioned that it lets her food keep cooking during regular power outages and that is a great use! (but more reliable infrastructure would be a better solution)

    @JanPospisil42 dig a hole and use the same hole everyday. Takes what 4 minutes... Plus what about the other methods of doing the exact same thing that already exist. And how often do you cook for 6 hrs. I said alot of words because I asked alot of questions. This doesnt solve deforestation. it merely delays it because they still have to gather firewood. Is this even a major contributor to deforestation. Certainly not on par with global warming. It may save people time to do other things with their lives but there are cheaper options that would work just as well. Im not arguing against it I just want more info on why this 'wonderbag' is the best solution. Too many products say they are the best solution to problems like this and global warming but dont actually solve anything.

    "Yes, it significantly reduces the amount of fuel you need, which then reduces the time you need to spend gathering the fuel. So you do get a bunch of free time you can spend on virtually anything else but gathering firewood or sitting next to a fire. But does it really do anything though?" "Why don't these people just..dig a hole twice a day every day? That's the same thing." (this is you, using a lot of words to say nothing of value.)

    I've had one for 2 years. I uses it to insulate my sous vide. it helps reduce energy requirements. Amazingly good at keeping things cold too

    I saw this same concept (except with newspaper and such) on Wartime Farm. So if the concept has been around since the 40's, it makes me wonder just how long it's been around! Probably forever! 😆

    so the founder has donated in name of Sorted, your comunity has donated a bunch, but what exactly has Sorted done for this cause? sorry for being negative, i am all for giving to the less fortunate and helping out where you can, but when a 2.4 milion subscriber youtube channel launches a campaign to collect money, i expect them to contribute with their comunity

    Collectively we have raised a huge sum of money for the great cause and that should be applauded. Plus, you may have seen by the pinned comment... before we launched the video, oblivious to success it would have, we kick-started it with a £1500 donation ourselves. :D
