Will like to buy a thermal cooking pot. Can anyone advise me on the following:

1) Where to get good buy?
2) Brand?
3) Capacity for a family of 4?

Thanx.

gafield,

you should be able to get them from any shopping centres.
i'm using Sakura brand, bought it from a home exihibition.
it's 3 litres can be using for a family of 4.

Singapore Sales is coming...wait a few more weeks
Most probably can get good buy from Robinson or Taka

Hi all,

I finally bought a thermal pot at taka GSS. I bought the tiger 4.5l and get a endo 2.5l free. Paid around $150 after discount and voucher. Have tried making barly drink and soup with the 2.5l endo one. Super! I boiled the barley water in the evening around 8pm and the next morning at around 7am, it is still warm. For soup, it has no problem maintaing the heat from 7am to around 7pm. Have yet to try my tiger 4.5l one.

Now I have one small problem. How to make porridge hah? I am making for my girl, so one person portion only. Which mean I cannot add too much water. The instruction says the inner pot must be at least 50% filled. How hah?

Yes indeed the small Endo pot is wonderful for 1-2 person meals. Bought it recently at Isetan for $20+. To cook porridge it shouldn't be difficult to fill up to 50% mark with water plus ingredients as the rice will soak up a lot of water. There is double usage for the pot as you can cook rice with the upper tray at the same time that your porridge is cooking below in the thermal pot. Just add boiling water to the uncooked rice (about half cup) in the upper tray.

Patntee,

I tried to make porridge twice yesterday (once in the morning and checked in the evening; and once around 7pm and checked this morning) with my 2.5l endo. The first time, the porridge turned out too watery and the second time, it turned out too dry. But both times, the porridge is soft already. May I know what is the capacity of your small endo thermal pot? Is it the 1.5l one? You get it from Isetan recently? Wonder whether they stil have it?

Sieulan,
Yes taka still have the 4.5l tiger + 2.5l endo free promo but the 10% discount I think no more already. I get it for S$137.10 cos' I used my taka card (so 10% discount) plus I have $60 taka voucher. Else it is $219. If you find it too ex. (which I do until I remembered I have the vouchers), you can buy the endo one. My friend has the endo 6l and she said it's very good. I am very please with my endo 2.5l. Only thing is that I still don't know how to cook porridge but I think it's only a matter of trial and error.

Hi Gafiel,

Thanks for your reply.
Hm...i do not have Taka card...sigh..
Nvm..I check it out for ENDO. Well..My friend told me there is one offer at Giant for Morris 5L(come with two SS pot:5L & 2L together) for $59(orig.$79). But I wonder whether this brand good?
like that can cook 2 dishes together? Hmm..Just wonder whether 2 dishes could be cooked nicely or it will affect each other dishes?

gafield, just realised mine is 1.8l. 2.5l maybe slightly big to cook for 1 child. The Isetan sale was 2 weeks ago, should have ended but with the GSS, maybe it will come back on sale at one of the departmental stores.

Patntee,

Yes, I think my 2.5 l endo is too big for one person porridge. Will keep a lookout for a smaller one. Thanx :>

Hi Sieulan,

Sorry, now then I check this thread.

Yes, yes. My endo 2.5l also as good. So far, I have tried bak gu teh, winter melon soup, green bean soup, chicken soup etc. All turned out well. The next thing I want to try is chicken stew.

Does yours come with recipe?

Just buy dried ones from supermarket. Boil for a while (3min) then put in thermal cooker. Should turn nicely soft after 1h. (depending on the amount you cook). For younger kids, maybe you just remove the skin b4 feeding them. (roll them between your fingers or palms and the skin will rub off easily.)
A nice and addictive snack for young and old...

The soft chick peas can be added to salads too. Yummy!

Now my mum cooks pumpkin-green bean soup with the thermal pot....after watching TW news that pumpkin green bean soup can lessen the effects of gasto-intestinal virus/HFMD
