Have I missed something? What response are you talking about pumpkin pie?

The Thermoserver would be much better if it had a SS lid, IMO.

Edited to add...I found the original post.

A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

May I suggest the dreampot It is sold from Queensland they come in 3 different sizes 3 ltr,5 ltr and 6 ltr. They are not cheap but work extremely well. I have the 3 ltr and the 6ltr. and i am very happy with them. Basically they are passive cookers. You can take them to the beach on a boat anywhere. They cook whilst you travel or keep cold as well. Look it up on the net you will get all the info. Frans.
Thanks Frans. I had a quick look and couldn't believe it ,the supplier here in the UK is only just up the road from where I live. :o

Pumpkin Pie, what is this Indian Pot you tested? Do you have a link? I am very interested.  :)

Kath, the brand was milton, and I am sure you could buy something similar in any indian grocery shop. Sorry I don't have a link. Good Luck

I agree. I also think the the bowl lid would be better if it were stainless steel as well so it doesn't absorb odours. I think the company's response would be that the lid would get hot and difficult to remove, but I'm sure Vorwerk could design somesort of silicone attachment to the lid to make it user friendly - my Essteele pots and pans have silicone on the handles so they don't feel hot to use.

I managed to purchase a similar product in a local indian food shop - plastic outside, stainless steel inside with a lockable lid, which is great if food is being transported - two sizes 850ml and 1500ml and inexpensive.

For those in Perth - shop is "Spicy Touch" in High Rd Willetton near corner of Leach Hwy. I'm sure other stores will have them too.

That looks great Bonsai how much was it? I am not in Perth I wonder if you can buy these in Sydney? Lockable lid is a great idea

That's not too far away. I think I may be paying them a visit.

850ml was $18, and 1500ml $25 - haven't had a chance to use them yet as only purchased yesterday. The brand is "Cello".

Trudy introduced me to an Indian shop in Adelaide a while back so today when I went on a trip with my carers' group to the Central Market, I went to the shop and bought myself a food warmer.  It is the Milton brand like PP bought and although it has 1500 on the bottom, it only holds 1 litre which is what I wanted as I have a Thermoserver for bigger quantities.  I bought it from Indian Spices, 14 Market Street, Adelaide and also stocked up with my spices whilst there.  There is another Indian shop opposite this one so it may be interesting to compare stocks, I only went into this one today.  Price $20 and I love the lockable lid feature.

After half a day out and a big lunch, who feels like cooking.  DH got a hot pack for tea tonight  ;)  Just a handy thing to have in the cupboard and seeing as I was there .......

Popped into a new Indian grocer that opened up here, and was pleased to find one!



Not sure if it was expensive at $23.00?.....but I was happy that it had a locked lid feature.  That's one reason I don't like transporting the thermoserve......you never know if the contents are going to be all over the boot! (There's a slight rumour I  turn corners a little sharply  :P).
Perfect for taking hot dips to bbq's.
Bonus was I finally found some orange blossom water.  Been looking for ages, and it was a big bottle for $3......happy days  :D
.........EAT CAKE!

Ohh that looks like a good one.  I prefer the stainless steel ones.  I am going to go hunting.

That is great value maddy - they only had the plastic ones where I went (stainless steel lining).
