The Thermal Cooker is made of a highly insulated stainless steel lined thermal unit, the steel is of the highest quality. It is 304 - 18/10 surgaical stainless steel, with a lid that seals shut and a fold up/down handle for easy portability. The inner stainless steel cooking pots are also made of 304 18/10 surgical stainless Steel and includes one large pot with a heavy duty triple layered bottom, with the addition of a smaller pot which has a single layer bottom. The smaller pot can be nested inside of the larger one, providing a place for an optional small side dish. Use of the smaller pot is optional. The small pot can be removed to accommodate larger quantities of food in the larger pot, which can be used separate and independent of the smaller nesting pot. The heavy duty bottom is on large pot. Both pots can also be used on an Induction Stove.

So far, I love it. I have only made spaghetti sauce, as I am still waiting for my Ultra Gel to arrive.
Changes to the sauce were simple: I left out the water I usually add to replace evaporation and used 1 cup of dried tomatoes that weren't hydrated first. Took the same amount of time (2 hrs), no need to reheat for dinner after 7 hours, no stove spatter and nothing stuck on the bottom of the pan. It was perfect and indistinguishable from the stove top method I have used for 40 years.

I cooked a pot roast following closely the directions on the video. A couple of times during the day I was tempted to open the lid just to check on its progress but I resisted. Pot roast, potatoes, onions and carrots were delicious. Hard to believe this was the result of about 15 minutes of electricity.

I'm very pleased with my purchase of my Saratoga Jack's 7L Thermal Cooker. It arrived very quickly and was packaged well. I love food cooked in a crock pot, but I know of several fires that have started due to them being unattended. This solves the problem. This item is the most unique idea I've seen. I've carried a vacuum thermos bottle with hot coffee for years. Now I have somthing to tansport hot meals, also while they cook. I've shown this to several of my wife's friends. Several have ordered one also.

Honestly I was really questioned how well this would hold in the heat and cook. My wife purchased it last year and we had not tried it out yet but this past weekend we gave it a workout. My boys and I had been planning a steelhead fishing trip to northern Idaho for quite some time. When we were prepping to leave my wife got out the cooker and said to take it and try it. We prepped a pot roast in the cooker and got it started then we hit the road with the cooker on the floorboard in the truck. 11 hours or so later we were finally at our hotel and tired from the drive. Off and on during the day we would catch a hint of the roasts aroma but we never opened the lid. Once we were settled in the hotel room we were finally able to test the cooker out. 12 hours after we closed the lid at home we opened it again and we surprised that after all of that time driving we did not spill a drop and the internal lid was so warm we could barely keep our hand on it for more than a few seconds. The roast? It was so tender that we could cut it with our forks. My wife and I are going to cook with this more to experiment on recipes and are excited about it. This cooker has proven its value to me without a doubt. Our only regret with using it this past weekend on our fishing trip is that I did not prepare for a second meal with it knowing we were going to spend a full day on a cold river fishing. It would have been nirvana to go back to the hotel and walk in smelling food already waiting for us....I learned my lesson.

The Saratoga Jack's 7L Thermal Cooker (w/dual nesting inner pots) is a superb piece of equipment. You will *never* regret purchasing a thermal cooker from Saratoga Jack's.
The unit itself is well made (especially considering how reasonably priced it is) and does not tend to have any thermal leaks. It really is a premium piece of equipment at a bargain price.
All-in-all I certainly recommend the Saratoga Jack's Thermal Cookers. Combine your Thermal Cooker with a Stovetec rocket stove, and maybe a parabolic solar cooker, and you will have all your bases covered for off-the-grid cooking (the Stovetec burns any bio fuel, such as wood, grass, etc); and the parabolic solar cookers use sunlight.
Maybe Jack should consider carrying Stovetec stoves and parabolic solar cookers (or at least carry the Solar Oven Society "Sport" Solar Oven).
Regardless, go ahead and purchase yourself a Saratoga Jack's Thermal Cooker. You will be glad you did.
I hope this helps.

I can not believe how much fun I am having remaking all our favorite recipes to cook in my thermal cooker. I think this needs to be published everywhere so more people can see the benefits of this product.

I received my thermo cooker in record time. I was so excited to try it. I made chili in the big container and followed the rice recipe for the small pan on the top. I need to tweek my recipe a little but over all I am thrilled not to be using electricity for 8 hours to make dinner. This is part of my emergency prep for the future. I want it to be second nature so that I don't freak out if the power grid is gone.

This is great, just like a crock pot with out worrying while you are not home. Unlike a crock pot, you food won't burn. And no added stress of having a hot crock pot plugged in and on at home.
Take it with you! This is great for camping, emergency situations and just for fun. I use this on days I work to make sure the kids have something unprocessed for dinner. They love it too. AND if the food cools too much before serving, just reheat in the pan!
I have done soups, chili, oatmeal, chicken stew and dips. All came out terrific!
I love that you can use any fuel: electric, gas or fire. This makes it ideal for any situation. Also, you can use this as a cooler as well. Just make sure the food is cold all the way through before putting it into the liner. Fantastic!
