Just a few months in the past I requested a buddy if she had a rice cooker I may borrow. She didn’t, however she had a Dream Pot that could possibly be used instead. Her household had used it travelling with younger kids, as a result of it cooks meals inside the pot with out the necessity for an influence supply. Following this dialog, I promptly forgot the equipment’s title. When my buddy introduced it over I mentioned ‘so what’s it known as once more, a dream boat?’. The ‘Dream Boat’ will now without end be its title.
I do know there are many individuals who litter up their kitchen with all types of home equipment purchased on a whim and infrequently used sometimes if in any respect. I’m not one in every of them. I’ve a Ninja meals processor and an electrical beater for egg whites, and that’s it. However I cherished Bev’s Dream Boat a lot I purchased my very own, now rebranded as My Thermopot.
In short, the Thermopot comprises a smaller saucepan that sits inside a bigger one. The cooking course of begins in these saucepans on the range prime. One or each saucepans then go into the Thermopot and also you shut the lid. There’s a minimal cooking time for some recipes, however you may simply ‘set and neglect’. The meals continues to cook dinner within the Thermopot and stays sizzling for hours.
I’ve used it to cook dinner soups, corned silverside and greens, risotto, casseroles, and tapioca pudding. It’s notably good for curries, as a result of the curry cooks within the massive saucepan while the rice steams away on prime within the smaller one. Additionally it is wonderful for soaking in and cooking pulses, since you don’t want to remain near the range for a few hours as they simmer away.
It’s not like me to get excited by kitchen home equipment. However this has been a wonderful buy. My Dream Boat will cut back gasoline utilization as a result of I not simmer something on the stovetop for longer than about 20 minutes. However I believe its biggest asset is having the ability to cook dinner meals with out the have to be there.
