DOMESTIC DIVA TIPS: One-pot meals are tasty, easy to make and require less cleanup, making them perfect for busy families. Thermal cookers are excellent for preparing one-pot dishes, as they allow you to prepare meals in advance, then simply leave your dish to continue cooking inside. You’ll have peace of mind knowing food stays warm for hours, so there’s no need for reheating no matter how late your husband and kids may be for dinner.

The Thermos® Shuttle Chef® is a perennial favourite, as it was the world’s first thermal cooker launched in 1989. The Thermos® Shuttle Chef® TCRA-4500 uses heat retention to keep food tasty and warm without having to use your stove for long periods of time, helping you save gas and electricity. Its portable handle also means you can take it outdoors, to potlucks and picnics!
