What is a Wonderbag?
It really is very simple. The Wonderbag is a heat-retention cooking bag.
A Wonderbag is an insulated bag in which people can cook anything from meaty stews and vegetable curries to simple rice and soups. You kick-start the cooking process by heating your pot of food on the stove, then simply place it in the Wonderbag.
Wonderbag's clever insulating properties allow food that has been brought to the boil to finish cooking while in the bag. This greatly reduces the use of additional energy. This means families can cook appetising, hot meals while saving energy and money. It also means less time tending to the cooking food. Now time can be better spent looking after children, earning an income or doing essential chores.
And because the Wonderbag is unplugged, your free time will also be worry-free!
Heat-retention cooking is an age-old technique and wonderbag’s fun and unique design has brought it back into the 21st century!
The slowed cooking process, combined with sealing the pot in the Wonderbag, ensures the flavours and nutrients are retained inside the pot - not evaporated into thin air.
The Wonderbag story
Sarah Collins, Wonderbag founder, grew up on the East Coast of South Africa. Her background is in social development with a huge passion for the environment and conservation. Having spent 10 years in community-based tourism in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, she returned to South Africa in the early 2000s. She realised that poverty alleviation projects were the key to grassroots conservation in Africa. Spending 5 years with the NGO, LoveLife, Sarah implemented an environmental youth leadership programme named Take Back the Future.
Then in 2007, South Africa suffered a series of power cuts. Sarah, frustrated with her half-cooked dinners, remembered how her grandma had surrounded her pans with cushions to keep them cooking after she turned the stove off. So she tried it... and it worked!
Sarah’s thoughts turned to the millions of families in developing countries that cook by burning kerosene, paraffin or wood. These stoves and fires aren’t just polluting, they make entire homes too smoky to breathe in, cause house fires, burn children, swallow wage packets and cause serious illnesses.“From that night on I knew this was it,” says Sarah. “I became obsessed.”
A good friend of Sarah’s, Moshy Mathe, sewed up the prototype Wonderbag. Amazingly, when tested in labs, food that was heated to boiling point for just a few minutes on the stove and then transferred to the bag, carried on cooking and remained hot for up to 12 hours. The two women were in business.
Since 2008, the Wonderbag has been Sarah’s passion and purpose. It has taken 5 years of trial, error and dogged determination to get the Wonderbag to where it is now.
