The Wonderbag is a commercially-produced heat-retention cooker that allows food that has been brought to a boil on a stove, to continue cooking for hours after it has been removed from the fuel source.

Over 650,000 bags have been distributed in South Africa, for which the first round of carbon credits have been registered and issued. It is also being manufactured locally in Rwanda and Turkey, with pilots poised to launch in Kenya, Nigeria and Somalia. Also over 4,500 bags have been sold in the UK, with a buy-one-give-one model to support getting Wonderbags into humanitarian relief.
