Portable fuel-saver DreamPot delivers easy-cook nutritious food

Nothing does more for happy, healthy touring than good nutritious food when it is wanted, where it is wanted.

The GoSee extended evaluation on the road and at home of thermal cooking and DreamPot shows it delivers on time every time. It saves big time on fuel, gas or electricity and does not demand that someone watches the pot.

Completely portable the DreamPot keeps cooking indoors or out once the recipe start-up has been followed. So please read the instructions.

We use the 6 litre DreamPot which comes with a 2 litre inner pot. This allows cooking variety with recipes which run from soup to cake and most things in between.

Silverside with vegetables and soup to start is easy to prepare and feeds four easily. About 20 minutes boiling time before the inner pot locks down in the insulated outer pot.

Put the vegetables in whole after the silverside first comes to the boil. Silverside can be traditional or add some fresh orange peel and four cloves with a tablespoon of quality French mustard for a change of pace.

There is plenty of room for personal touches and tofu makes a fine meat substitute in many meal combinations. Or tweak a chicken recipe with wine and mushrooms to produce Coq au Vin with an eight leg chicken.

On the road the DreamPot cooks along under a safety cargo net which restrains it upright in the truck as GoSee travels.

It is a good easy to carry friend at the end of a touring day and it cleans up quickly. We help this with a smear of cold pressed virgin olive oil in the bottom of the Dream-Pot.

Cakes, bread, scones are DreamPot options and fruit tea cake, spiced apple muffins and sugarless fruit loaf suit a diabetic meal plan.

DreamPot is also a rice cooker, Bain Marie, cooler and yoghurt maker. GoSee also finds that the DreamPot is a convenient and power-saving method of cooking for working people when they want a meal ready when they get home.

Add the benefit of a meal which can be left all day but will not burn, boil over or overcook and many people, including the elderly and invalids will find real benefits.

When the DreamPot meal is ready, enjoy either straight away (short-term cooking) or it can be served up to eight hours later (long-term cooking).

On the flip-side DreamPot is just as efficient at keeping a few cold drinks handy on a hot day.

The DreamPot is a five in one appliance. There is no need to take a lot of pots and pans. It is cooker, cooler, barbeque food warmer, rice cooker, yoghurt maker and saucepans.

The DreamPot saves space, a lot of gas (about 80 per centcompared with conventional cooking), and is safe and easy to clean. In hot weather is really helps keep Recreational Vehicles, cooks and the kitchen cooler with its short pre-heat process.

The DreamPot has a double layer insulated outer pot which locks the heat in. The DreamPot has one or two 18/8 stainless steel inner pots and lids, which are the saucepans.

The cooking process is simple, easy and safe. Ingredients go in the inner pot. They are brought to the boil, cover with the lid. Gently boil on a stove for the required short time (about 10 minutes) from the DreamPot recipe book.

Then place the inner pot directly into the DreamPot and close the lid. The thermo cooking process starts and cooks the food in the retained heat.

Walk away the DreamPot does the rest without any need for a fuel source which makes it one of the most eco-friendly travel aids GoSee has tried.

It is essential that the volume of food in the DreamPot is about 80 per cent of its capacity. This safeguards health and keeps the meal in a food safe temperature zone over about eight hours.

The DreamPot comes in three sizes three, five and six litres. The 3 Litre model comes with a single 3 litre inner pot.

The 5 and 6 litre models both come complete with large and small inner stainless steel pots.

The 5 and 6 litre models allow a large variety of recipes to be cooked, such as:

A large meal using the large inner pot only (e.g. pot roasts, corned meat, bread).

2 separate meals using the large and small pots together (e.g. curry and rice, meat and vegetables).

One meal on its own, using both inner pots as a Bain-Marie style.

Use as a double saucepan, allowing scones and muffins to be baked.

The 3 litre model is ideal for cooking one pot dinners, such as soups and stews, as well as a variety of rice dishes, tofu,pasta, lentils, vegetables, fruit and yoghurt.
