Thermal Cooker: I absolutely love my thermal cooker — start dinner on the stove when it’s convenient then transfer the pans to the thermal cooker and let it continue to cook 4 to 8 hours without having to tend to it. Use stove fuel propane and don’t heat up the cooking area. Best thing: go have fun and come home to a fully-cooked dinner!
