 Cooking Time Guidance 

The length of time for cooking with the Wonderbag varies by recipe, however here is a rough guideline for cooking different types of food

We recommend pre-soaking beans the night before and to avoid using anything acidic (like tomatoes) or salt (including stock with salt added) when cooking so that beans can soften completely.

Below is a simple chart that shows the approximate times and quantities to get you started on your bean adventures. Increased boiling times will lower the bag time.

Cooking with the Wonderbag is a new concept to most people, so the best thing to do is start with simple recipes and gradually work your way up to more complex dishes. We recommend starting with smaller pieces of meat and vegetables, as these require less time cooking, and then move to larger pieces once you understand how much cooking time they require in the Wonderbag. 

The key to success is getting your food to boiling temperature, and keep it here for at least 10-15 minutes, before putting the pan in the Wonderbag. You should also ensure your pan is filled to near the top, as an almost-full pan retains heat much better than a half-full pan.
