For people who are a little tougher on their gear Wonderbag Sturdy is by popular demand now available in Australia!!
Professional tour guides, station cooks, commercial kitchen owners, bush campers, this one is for you.The robust cotton fabric, that is used internally in the Traditional print bags is also used as the external fabric in the Sturdy. Making it a little less colourful, but tougher choice.
Fireless cooking and heat retention has been used as a cooking method through the ages.It saves fuel,frees the cook from tending to the fire or stove and produces wholesome food with a beautiful vibrant flavour.
By combining this practical age old technique with modern design, Wonderbag was founded by Sarah Collins in 2008, as a way to empower rural families in Africa.The insulation comes from repurposed foam chips which are packed into a colourful machine washable poly-cotton blend bag.The drawstring allows the bag to adjust to the pot size and seals in the heat and the goodness.
The two sizes available are :
COMPACT can take up to a 6 Litre pot
- Comfortably feed 2-6 people
- Weight 1.1kg
MEDIUM can take a 2L to a 10L pot
- Has the versatility to feed a family or a party approx 2-15 people

All Wonderbags are machine washable and come with a mouthwatering recipe book that includes hints and tips.
PLEASE NOTE - The Sturdy now comes in the Navy Blue fabric inside and out which differs from the Navy/red combo in some of our images.
To use simply follow your favourite slow cooked recipe ,bring your pot to the boil using conventional methods, place it in the bag and it will continue to cook for up to 8hours without the use of additional fuel.
Initial fuel requirements are as follows -
- rice needs 5mins at a simmer
- meat off the bone 20 mins at a simmer
- meat on the bone 30 mins at a simmer
- pre soaked dried beans 15 mins at a simmer
- root vegetables 15 mins at a simmer
Once your creation has been at boil point for the above times ( a guide only) and your pot and lid are hot, place it in the bag and leave to cook.
Next open up your bag of goodness when and wherever it suits you -at a friends house ,down the beach, in your caravan, next to your swag, under a tree, in your boat, by a creek, in your car ,at a football match , in your lounge room or dining table......You don't have to ever worry about burnt pots, overcooking your food or leaving a flame unattended.
Wonderbags also make excellent rice cookers, yogurt makers and picnic bags. They can keep food hot or cold and are incredibly versatile.
All these things are impressively convenient for us in the developed world but for those families living in poverty they can be life changing.Your purchase helps the Wonderbag Foundation to distribute Wonderbags to families in need.
