Lunch In A Thermos Pot

My multi-colored fried rice is ready and it is 11:30am now.

After frying the rice, I transferred it into my Shuttle Chef Thermos pot before placing the pot into the insulated outer pot to keep the rice warm. My 3 rascals come home from school at different times of the day from 12:30pm, 2pm to 4:30pm, thus, they will have nice and warm food for their tummies, leaving this super busy lazy mummy free from reheating the food 3 times.

The Thermos Shuttle Chef is perfect for busy mothers who only have very little time to cook in the morning. With a Thermos Shuttle Chef, you can prepare your food ahead of time and you can shorten the cooking time. You prepare the food as per normal in the inner pot and bring it up to a boil on a stove top, then simmer for a few minutes to ensure that all the ingredients are at the same boiling temperature. Then you place the inner pot into the outer pot and put the lid on. The outer pot has vacuum-insulated double walls so the food keeps cooking slowly in its own retained heat. Let’s say you start to cook at 6am, by the time you have your dinner at 6pm, the food would have been slowly ‘cooking’ for 12 hours in the Thermos pot. In the morning, you can even prepare your lunch or evening meal to be eaten in the office before you head off, place the pot in the outer container and then store it in an upright position while travelling with complete safety.

It also works equally well to keep food cold and will keep chilled foods under the 5 degrees Celsius, necessary to prevent food poisoning and bacteria from growing. I have yet to try putting cold food in this Thermos pot. We mainly use it to keep our meals, soups and ‘tong sui’ warm.

  1. Have seen this here and it is expensive…abt CAD 200? Looks like it is well worth it. I was thinking that it would be useful for potlucks and picnics. Have see the one that comes with 2 pots. Guess it is similar to the Tiger pot in use?

  2. Chris, wow it sure is expensive in Canada! And yes, it would be very useful for potlucks and picnics and eating on the go. I have not heard of Tiger pot though.

  3. sound like a good recommendation. thanks for sharing .. will get one when I am back next year …

    I have a child Thermos for Malaika to bring hot food to school during the cold months. Really very happy with Thermos product.

  4. this is in my wishlist. may i ask, when do u bring the inner pot back to the outer pot to continue the cooking? when it boils? just afraid that the food may not be fully cook when i come back from work in the evening (if i prepare everything in the morning). will it happen? 🙂

  5. Mel, for me if I boil soup, I will bring the inner pot to the outer pot after about 1 hour+ on the stove. If it just boils only (about half hour), i feel that it is not long enough to bring out the flavor of all the ingredients. We normally boil soup at about 11ish am and will drink it at around 6ish pm. It is good for keeping food warm but if you want the food to get thoroughly cooked with all flavors seeped out, then I think it’s better to use a slow cooker 🙂

  6. Hey Admin, How much is this pot in KL?? I will be back for a holiday in Oct, so may consider getting one. Pls give me an idea on size and the cost. Thanks!
