Experiencing The Magic Cooker



I bought a 5L Magic cooker last week. 60 minutes Earth Hour will never end. This is one of our action to support the campaign. Instead of boiling soup in slow cooker for 6 hours a day, hubby & I are slowly shift to using this magic cooker instead.

The magic cooker consists of 2 stainless steel inner pots (2L & 5L) and an external pot as thermal pot. The 5L inner pot can be used to boil soup, dessert and porridge, while the 2L inner pot can be used to steam rice, fish and other stuffs. The contents of inner pot(s) is bring to boil under gas stove for 30 minutes before transferring it into the thermal pot. After that the soup will be kept warm for the next few hours.

My first experience in cooking peanut soup with this pot was not successful one. I followed the instruction as per the user manual to just boil the soup content for 10 minutes. So, ended up I had to continue simmer the soup to get it thoroughly cooked. I learnt the lesson. For the 2nd time, I cooked a pot of dessert for 30 minutes, then transferred it into thermal pot. After 2 hours, I reboiled it for another 15 minutes and kept in the thermal pot until time to consume it. It turned out great! Yes!


Yesterday was hubby's turn to boil soup for our dinner (I'm the one who prepare the ingredients). Tada....here it is. It turned out as nice as boiling in slow cooker.
