Changing lives one Wonderbag at a time
Its infomercial-ready name is ripe for marketing, but the Wonderbag has so far flown largely under the consumer radar. Attention has been ramping up, though, with the device and its inventor being featured in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Cosmopolitan, O Magazine, the London Times, and on websites including Epicurious and the Huffington Post.
With Wonderbag, there’s nothing to plug in and no fuel to add. All you do is heat up your food on a conventional stove, then place your pot inside the Wonderbag and let it cook for up to 12 hours using the heat trapped inside.
The portable slow cooker is the brainchild of entrepreneur Sarah Collins, who hopes to empower people around the world “with a buy-one-give-one model to support getting Wonderbags into humanitarian relief,” according to the Wonderbag website. The site claims 650,000 bags have been distributed so far, and 6,000 have been bought in the United States and Europe.
For every Wonderbag sold via Amazon, the company gives one Wonderbag to an African family. Because the bag requires no fuel, families can save as much as 30 percent of their income. Here’s where to order.
