The '''HotBag Project''' promotes cooking with [[Heat-retention cooking|retained heat]], with particular relevance to all food cooked with water (rice, porridge, potatoes, vegetables, soups, stews, dried beans, and even a whole chicken). The HotBag is a companion to any and every stove, at home or away. Once food is heated to boiling point on a stove, cooking can continue in a HotBag. The light-weight, non-bulky insulation includes a heat-reflective foil which also acts as a steam barrier. Using a HotBag does not lengthen normal cooking time, while it reduces stove time by two thirds. Food remains hot for 3 to 5 hours and longer. Being portable, the HotBag enables hot dishes to be transported in a vehicle while cooking, and it is also useful as a coolerbag for grocery shopping.

The HotBag Project promotes cooking with retained heat, with particular relevance to all food cooked with water (rice, porridge, potatoes, vegetables, soups, stews, dried beans, and even a whole chicken). The HotBag is a companion to any and every stove, at home or away. Once food is heated to boiling point on a stove, cooking can continue in a HotBag. The light-weight, non-bulky insulation includes a heat-reflective foil which also acts as a steam barrier. Using a HotBag does not lengthen normal cooking time, while it reduces stove time by two thirds. Food remains hot for 3 to 5 hours and longer. Being portable, the HotBag enables hot dishes to be transported in a vehicle while cooking, and it is also useful as a coolerbag for grocery shopping.

The project aims to achieve recognition of the benefits of the HotBag as an essential cooking item in every household:

~Environmental benefits through 50% less stove usage in normal cooking procedures. ~ Enhanced safety and convenience around cooking. ~ Makes meals more delicious and more nutritious. ~ Also useful as a coolerbag.

HotBag cooking does not mean a longer cooking time. It means less stove usage. For example, Rice: 5-10 min. on the stove + 20 min in a HotBag = perfectly cooked rice - in normal time. Then you have the advantage of keeping it warm without it burning and no more burnt pots.


The HotBag Project is a South African initiative, and the HotBag is a registered design.
