Dream-Pot Portable Thermo Cooker

The Energy Saving Dream-Pot concept is simple - Prepare your meal and cook normally on a hob for a maximum time of 30 minutes, then transfer to the Dream-Pot where the food continues to cook in its own retained heat with no further need for any form of heat source.

The Time Saving Dream-Pot is simply left to work its magic so you are free to work, relax or enjoy yourself with no worries about boiling over, burning or over-cooking.

The Portable Dream-Pot can be used indoors at home or outdoors and is readily transportable with no worries about spillage - Use it when Camping, in the Caravan/Motorhome, on the Beach, for Picnics, BBQ's & Sporting Events when Boating or Fishing.

The Versatile Dream-Pot can also be used as a Rice Cooker, yoghurt Maker, BBQ Bain Marie and a Cooler or Ice Bucket.

How it works

Thermo cooking has been about for many years in both the form of the 'Vacuum Flask Cooker' and the traditional 'Hay Box/Straw Box Cooker'.

The key to the Dream Pots incredible success is both its robust and portable nature and incredibly efficient insulation.

Cooking Simplicity Itself

The Dream Pot consists of a double layer superior insulated outer pot thus ensuring maximum retention of heat. The Dream Pot comes with one or two 18/8 stainless steel inner pots and lids (these are the saucepans).

Step 1: Add ingredients into inner pot. Place on a heat source and bring to boil. Continue to simmer for the short time required (maximum 30 minutes, based on a Dream Pot recipe).
Step 2: Transfer inner pot into Dream Pot and close the lid.
Step 3: The meal now cooks using its own heat because of the highly insulated Dream Pot.

Cooks with no constant monitoring, your meal cannot burn, boil over or overcook.

After the required cooking time is completed, serve when ready, even hours later.

The Dream-Pot Cool Box

The Dream-Pot also acts as a very efficient Cool Box. Place your food and drinks in the Dream-Pot with ice and they will stay cool and fresh for several hours.

What did we think?

The Dream-Pot has been tested by UKCampsite.co.uk member Cas54, a keen outdoor chef. Below are her thoughts

"Just what it says on the tin Ö. Itís a Dream Pot"

The first attempt was done in a rush, using a recipe from the book. Spaghetti Bolognaise - the sauce was just coloured water and whole thing was rather bland - On the up side, we had a hot and edible meal ready as soon as we had set up camp.

Second use was much better, Treacle sponge pudding, shared with nine fellow campers - everyone loved it.

Easy to use - need a bit of prep time (but you do with any meal) boil on the hob for 10 minutes (30 for steam pud) in one or both of the saucepans supplied - once you have placed it the Dream Pot - forget it until needed

Easy to clean using hot soapy water.

The Cook Book is Australian, ok we speak the same language - but do use different reference wording eg cooking in cupfuls. Also corned beef here comes in tins from Fray Bentos - there itís a silverside joint! Trial and error will soon get this sorted

Would recommend the medium size one - comes with two saucepans - plenty big enough for family meals and you can do a meal and dessert at the same time.

Small has only one saucepan - so half a dinner or just one meal

Where Can I get them from?

We are trying to locate a new supplier of the Dream Pots
