This new 5th generation Mr D’s 3L Thermal Cooker is suitable for 2 to 4 people and due to the cast iron ring on the base of the inner pot can still hold it’s temperature for up to 6 hours when 50% full. The cooker is so efficient that it will continue boiling once placed into the insulated outer container for around 5 minutes and this ensures maximum start temperature for powerless cooking.
The outer container has built in handles for easy carrying and these fold flat when not in use. The outer container like the Mr D’s 4.5L Thermal Cooker has a vacuum in the twin stainless steel walls of the out container. This form of insulation is still the most efficient form available.
The lid of the outer container locks for safe carrying and storage in your boat, motorhome or caravan.
IMPORTANT: This cooker like Le Creuset pans has a cast iron base so it MUST always be put into the outer container when hot or placed on a suitable trivet as if put directly on a work surface it will burn it.
Mr D’s Top Pot
The Mr D’s Top pot is the number one accessory for the Mr D’s Energy Saving Thermal Cooker because of the extra flexibility it gives.
Being a separate cooking pot with a lid the Mr D’s Top Pot enables you to cook two types of meals at the same time. For example you could cook rice, or a pudding in the Top Pot with your main meal underneath.
When you are cooking a small amount.
When cooking for 2 or 3 people the Mr D’s Top Pot can also help to ensure enough volume (we recommend the thermal cooker it be at least 80% full for maximum heat retention) in the inner pot to get the longest cooking time. By putting your meal in the inner pot and placing the Mr D’s Top Pot filled with boiling water above this will enable you to achieve the 80% volume.
Where only some members of the family are vegetarian.
The Mr D’s Top Pot is also very popular with families where one member is a vegetarian and the other is not as you can cook the two types of meals at the same time but separate from each other.
