"hubby has taken to this cooking style with a great deal of flare"

My husband usually does the cooking when we travel and it has been mainly BBQ's.

I recently purchased our Shuttle Chef so that we could have some different meals when we were traveling and after a bit of trial and not too much error, hubby has taken to this cooking style with a great deal of flare...we still have our BBQ's but much less now and he is really enjoying casseroles, sliversides, soups and stews.

We are both really happy with the variety we have achieved and just how easy it is to use.

"I am now regularly cooking cakes"

I have never been much of cake cook and have actually avoided cooking them after many previous disasters however recently on our trip I though I would try out a Shuttle Chef cake...the first one was a bit soft in the middle until I realised that a lot of the boiling water had evaporated while it was cooking and so on the next attempt I topped up the water and we had an excellent result.

I am now regularly cooking cakes but have to be a little restrictive as they are too yummy and we tend to eat too much of them.

I have tried all sorts of different packet mixes as well as some old favorites now and even invented some new ones.

"the meals are so full of flavour and just so tender."

I originally purchased my Shuttle Chef to make our life on the road more flavorsome as we were quite sick of BB Q's and Take Away meals but since coming back from our big trip I have found that I am using it at home just as much as we did when we were traveling.

It is so easy and convenient and we really do enjoy how the meals are so full of flavour and just so tender.

"I find that I am using my Shuttle Chef more and more"

I know the Shuttle Chef is not a weight loss machine but I have to tell you that it has changed the way I cook and more importantly what I EAT and subsequently I have lost real weight.

I really look forward to my meals now and even though I am usually on shift work at all sorts of odd hours I can come home to an excellent meal that is healthy and nutritious because I know what went into it.

I find that I am using my Shuttle Chef more and more as I develop new ways to cook old favorites.

"using the Shuttle Chef I have really noticed my power bill "

I really have to tell you that since I have been using the Shuttle Chef I have really noticed my power bill at home come down substantially.

I would not have believed how much electricity I had been using when I was cooking my meals the old way but using the Shuttle Chef has certainly demonstrated this very clearly to me and I am telling everyone about it.

"Keep the accessories coming as we are watching with anticipation."

Congratulations on the new accessories for the Shuttle Chef.

We really did not think that we needed any thing else as I had worked out ways to do most everything we intended but when my husband bought me the Steamer and the Bain Marie for my birthday I was pleasantly surprised and we are now using these all the time.

Keep the accessories coming as we are watching with anticipation.

"So many people still cannot believe how little effort it takes"

We have enjoyed our Shuttle Chef many times and have been really impressed with the ability to cook cakes.

So many people still cannot believe how little effort it takes to produce such wonderful results.

Mind you we are having to become stronger in our will power to avoid those extra ponds that ca so easily creep upon you when there is cake freely around.

Our Shuttle Chef arrived and from the very first meal we have been impressed.

Soups, stews casseroles and even the cakes and deserts have all been excellent.

"My Shuttle Chef now resides in my kitchen and is used constantly."

We purchased our Shuttle Chef in preparation for our trip to Western Australia and foolishly did not even take it out of the box until a few days before we were to leave.

All of my experimenting was done "on the road" and despite being initially concerned with the whole process we managed to cook some excellent meals and soon settled on a number of firm favourites.

It was only when we returned home and I brought the Shuttle Chef inside did I realise just how versatile it really is.

You need to let people know that they should get used to cooking with the Shuttle Chef long before they embark on their journey as they will benefit from experimentation where you can get the ingredients you want and will soon quickly realise that you can cook just about anything and it will turn out excellently.

My Shuttle Chef now resides in my kitchen and is used constantly.

"it has been amazing for us both."

We have a Wheat and Sheep farm and with the current economic situation coupled with the drought we are doing it quite tuff at the moment.

My husband works really long hours every day and usually does not get home until well after dark.

Previously he has had to put up with cold sandwiches for lunch and a microwaved meal in the evenings when he finally came home.

Recently we purchased a Shuttle Chef at the AgQuip and although we really couldn't afford another cooking saucepan it has been amazing for us both.

Now if my husband knows he will have a long day in the paddock he will take the Shuttle Chef with him and he has a small butane burner.....so that he can eat a hot meal for lunch and just warm it back up on the stove so that it is still hot for another meal after dark.

I can actually put on a meal for him at home later in the day and it is always hot for him no matter what time he gets home.

And I must say the lamb slow cooked in there is such an excellent change from chops.

"This Carry Bag has improved our use of the Shuttle Chef "

We have found the Padded Carry Bag we purchased with our Shuttle Chef is excellent.

When we know we have a very long day ahead of us we prepare the meal in the Shuttle Chef and place it in the Carry Bag, this way the meal will stay hot for much longer....we have even had meals over 14 hours later and it has still been too hot to eat (and I don't mean curry hot)

We travel in a motorhome and will team up with others to go into a town for a weekly shop and we find that the carry bag really comes int it's own as we can purchase all of our cold requirements knowing that the butter will not melt or the meat get hot even if we drop in for lunch at the RSL (which does tend to happen now and then)

This Carry Bag has improved our use of the Shuttle Chef and of course is dual purpose as everything we carry with us has to be.

"I have a complaint to make."

I have a complaint to make.

Well it is not really a real complaint.

Since cooking regularly with our Shuttle Chef both My husband and I have been putting on quite a bit of a tummy.

We have resorted to long walks and even riding the push bikes to keep this in trim (which is not such a bad thing)

We are still amazed at how well it cooks the meals and now that I had gotten my head around the fact that it cannot over cook a meal even if it is left in there for over 8 hours (I must admit I did open the lid in the beginning many times just to check if it was OK...but I now know to trust the process)

We regularly invite new friends over to share a meal and they are all amazed at how well it cooks and how hot the meal is at the end of the day.

"I am a very busy mum with two children at home under four years old."

I am a very busy mum with two children at home under four years old.

Meal times are always hectic and especially the evening meal when I am trying to prepare for everyone at the same time.

I have tended to snack the children to settle their cranky pants but this can lead to them not being able to eat their dinner.

Now that I have my Shuttle Chef I find that I can prepare the evening meal when the children are down for a sleep and in the evenings they can snack on their dinner.

With the two inner saucepans I can also prepare a child friendly meal that I can mash easily when required and also prepare a meal more suited to my husband and my tastes.

"this is when my Shuttle Chef comes into it own."

I am a really keep trout fisherman and spend many hours traipsing through icy cold streams looking for those elusive fish.

While the adrenalin is pumping and my interest is keen I am very content but when the blood sugar levels start to drop and I become cold and hungry then this is when my Shuttle Chef comes into it own.

To be able to have a piping hot meal and a cup of tea on the bank of a remote mountain stream is totally refreshing and I can renew my pleasurable pursuits again with vigor.

"This was the best decision we have made "

Life just seems to get better.

We are traveling full time now and have been for the past 4 years.

I must admit we had become somewhat jaded with the range of meals that were available to us with our limited cooking facilities and we just do not have the room to carry extra equipment.

Since we bought our Shuttle Chef we have been able to actually reduce the number of saucepans we carried and the range and quality of the meals we now enjoy is endless.

This was the best decision we have made except for the one to begin our life's journey around this beautiful country.

"It has rekindled a desire to eat well while traveling"

I cannot say enough about the wonderful meals we have been enjoying since we purchased the Shuttle Chef.

It has rekindled a desire to eat well while traveling and it is so simple to use.

I have been using your recipes and have adapted many of our old favourites as well.

"We have just had a wonderful experience with our Shuttle Chef."

We have just had a wonderful experience with our Shuttle Chef.

We all set out (fully prepared) with a group of people to travel along the Canning Stock Route in convoy.

Unfortunately for us our 12 volt fridge decided to die when we were only two days into our travels and as everyone in our convoy still had their fridges full we were in a real pickle about what to do.

While sitting around and discussing our situation at night (my husband was trying to reduce the number of beers we had ...to save fridge space) we realised that we had the Shuttle Chef and the padded carry bag we bought for it and as it was so cold at night we placed all of our fridge contents out on the top of the car to chill down.

Early the next morning we packed all of the things that needed to stay really cold inside the Shuttle Chef and the rest in the cooler bag.

We were able to complete the whole trip without losing any of our food.

Just another excellent reason to have bought our Shuttle Chef.

"to use the Shuttle Chef for most of our meals."

After using the Shuttle Chef for over 5 months we have received our quarterly electricity bill and were amazed to see that it had significantly dropped from what the equivalent period was last year.

Even over winter we managed to lower our usage of electricity and the only thing that we have done differently is to use the Shuttle Chef for most of our meals.

I wouldn't have believed that just changing our use of the stove could make such a notable difference but it has.

It will be interesting to see if we can make a similar difference in our Summer electricity bill as my wife is experimenting with all sorts of meals that we can cook and then enjoy as cold cuts and slices.

"and have been using it at home constantly."

We purchased our Shuttle Chef approximately four months ago and have been using it at home constantly.

We have tried all the recipes and have now been experimenting with some of our own.

It is really so easy to adapt almost any recipe now and my Husband is actually reading my magazines and asking "Can we do this one in the Chef" as he comes across one that looks good...and in most case we can, with a little adaption.

"entertaining, picnicing, camping, travel and would save effort, time and fuel."

The Shuttle Chef would enhance my life in every way, at home in normal kitchen use, entertaining, picnicing, camping, travel and would save effort, time and fuel.

What better way is there that would automatically redirect these precious savings into the circle of entertaining, relaxation and enjoyment?

"I would only have to carry one container when we hit the road for a day or a trip"

The Shuttle Chef, having two equal pots would be brilliant because it would allow me to make two meals, one for the meat eaters and one for the vegetarians, at the same time. that way I would only have to carry one container when we hit the road for a day or a trip

"To be able to serve a good meal in all kinds of weather "

Hi- My husband has had a dream for a very long time of living on the high seas in a boat.

I love to travel.

We finally have united our dreams and in October 2008 we will pick up our 43 foot catamaran.

My love for the water has yet to be developed.

On our Cat we will be masters of our life - sounds great but we have to make our own waterand our own power via solar panels or making power with our generator. To be able to have a cooking outfit that cuts these utilities use of power would definately be a much appreciated.To be able to serve a good meal in all kinds of weather instead of toasted sandwiches, I'm sure my husband will love me even more.

When our children and grandchildren visit I need not stay in the galley to give them meals - I just love that.

"it would be a wonderful asset to us while camping in the Great Outback of Oz"

From the remarks and comments I have heard about the Shuttle chef whilst travelling in Australia's outback, I am sure that a Shuttele chef would be of great benefit to me.

Besides the fact that it would be a wonderful asset to us while camping in the Great Outback of Oz, it would be of tremendous help to me while at home on the farm as both my husband and son work until all hours of the night and I never know when to expect them in for their evening meal. They could even have a hot midday lunch during cold winter days while still in the paddock.

Life is so full on for them both that to have lovely hot food when they would otherwise have the same old sangers day in day out would improve their day and mine too.

"I'm a great enthusiast for the Thermal Method "

Dear Allan and Lindi:

Introducing "new" ideas is always slow (at first) but it will work as you lean into it . . . consistently, in physics it's the law of consistent leverage!

I'm a great enthusiast for the Thermal Method because:

• It provides great variety from less expensive ingredients
• After the bring to heat hands on cooking time . . . its absolutely free of attention and concern
• It is perfect for longer voyages/road trips when a real meal will be welcome at the destination
• It allows flavors to truly mingle . . . better than any other method of cooking I know
• Food retains its shape, it doesn't disintegrate
• Thousands of ethnic dishes are able to be easily adapted to the method
• The double container unit is my preference, allowing for greater flexibility and heat retention for smaller quantities
• Oh yes . . . and no aroma as it "thermals" but mmm!! When it's opened

Hope this helps . . . much continued (consistent) success!!

"I did some research prior to buying and all I can say is its money well spent."

As I informed you my wife Kathy was preparing our first meal in the Thermal Cookware tonight.

Well I have just finished eating and all I can say is "amazing".

Kathy prepared a stew with Steak and vegetables. 10 mins work this morning, out watching our kids play sport all afternoon, return home, serve up and presto. One of the easiest, tastiest stews I've had. Not with good quality steak but basic old Blade Steak. Thank you, I did some research prior to buying and all I can say is its money well spent. I can see many more meals being prepared in the cookware both at home and whilst travelling aroud Australia in our van.

Thanks again and I will certainly be referring people to you.

"....Our food stayed hotter for longer and honestly cooked better...."

G'day Allan and Lindi,
We hope you have enjoyed your break over the Christmas and New Year period. Ours was spent with a group of friends who camp or roam as we do; there we all were in our vans or tents and sharing meals. Some people had the *cough* other, cheaper version of our beloved Shuttle Chef - were they envious when we casually browned meat in the inner pot! Our food stayed hotter for longer and honestly cooked better; suddenly they were not happy with their choice. I believe you will receive two orders shortly, unless they buy them at one of the camping shops which stock them now.
Have a wonderful, prosperous and exciting year!

"...The Shuttle Chef has been worth it's weight in gold this seaon!..."

G'day Allan,

I hope you're well mate. The Shuttle Chef has been worth it's weight in gold this season! Saved us buckets of time feeding our big crew, not to mention halved the number of dishes in the evenings! And Duncan our five-star chef really whipped up some delicious dishes in there - you'll love his Sumac Dusted Lamb... We've just uploaded a recipes page onto the website, and I'd like to pop your logo on that page (as well as the other pages you're already on).

Had another day in the bush filming today, and managed to grab some shots of me and the Shuttle Chef. Hope you like 'em! There's some more on their way too
Hope to catch up soon once my frantic schedule slows down a little!

Keep the shiny side up!

Cheers,

"....The ease and convenience of using a Shuttle Chef encourages us to continue a healthy lifestyle ...."

Having recently suffered a heart attack, my husband has been advised to include plenty of lentils in his diet. This food form benefits greatly from long, slow cooking and the Shuttle Chef is ideal for the job, thus improving our health and consequently, our life. Also, stews and soups can be difficult to include in the diet while travelling so while exploring our great outdoors.The ease and convenience of using a Shuttle Chef encourages us to continue a healthy lifestyle

"....Thank you for your hard work and energy in making my life as a working mom so much easier!!!...."

Hello Al and Lindi,
I LOVE my Thermal Cookware and all the recipes you provide. The information is so helpful to provide hot nutritious meals for not just our family but also gatherings at Girl Scouts, soccer parties, Boy Scouts, camping, and many other community gatherings. Just last night, I started a chicken broth for this week's dinner and a chili for a community party. Thank you for your hard work and energy in making my life as a working mom so much easier!!!
We do not camp much but we do use Shuttle Chef as a regular part of our kitchen cooking routine. Our electricity and gas bills have dropped for cooking, especially when we have large crowds for parties. I don't have to worry about over cooking and burning things when I'm busy with my guests and the food is just perfectly hot at the right time!!
Thank you from the bottom of all our happy tummies!!

When we experienced days of 40+ I found cooking early before beginning work at 6 left us with a cool house and a deliciously fully flavoured meal at night. Norm won't eat salads so the Thermal Chef has been an absolute blessing from above - everything from yoghurt, stewed fruit, casseroles, ossibucco, corned beef, bread and even the dogs meat rice and vegies - the uses are endless thank you so much for this practical invention which is such a dream to keep clean.

"....Put simply our Shuttle Chef has proved to be the one thing that helps us get away for a quick break at short notice...."

"Put simply our Shuttle Chef has proved to be the one thing that helps us get away for a quick break at short notice". We usually start work at 7.30am and finish about 5.30pm so a hasty decision by my husband to go away for a break for the weekend was often not eagerly received. I was often anxious about knocking off work, getting the van ready for the road and having the energy to stop and cook a nutritious and healthy meal fairly late at night. Now we arrive home and whilst putting clothes, food and liquid refreshments in the van, the Shuttle Chef is simmering on the home stove. When we finish packing, the Chef goes into the van and we hit the road stopping 1-2hrs down the track and enjoy a warm and tasty evening meal."

"....an essential part of our kitchen at home and when on the road...."

Dear Allan & Lindi: We saw the Shuttle Chef demonstrated at a camping show two years ago and it seemed like a good idea at the time. We didn’t get to use it for six months but when we started using it at home and the first meal confirmed that it was not just a good idea but rather a great idea. The first meal was our own curried chicken and vegie casserole recipe – it was amazingly flavoursome and the chicken so tender we immediately made another dish and froze it for future use.

We now use the Shuttle Chef several times a week in our home with the benefits being no heat in the kitchen, reduced energy costs, almost impossible to overcook, and towards the end of cooking the main meal, the remaining hot water can be used to quickly cook rice or pasta. We are now working on building our bread making skills in the Shuttle Chef.

On the road, we have found the Shuttle Chef to be an effective, healthy and easy alternative to the so often relied upon BBQ meals, particularly for older folk who really want to eat in a healthy manner but not spend a lot of time cooking. The Shuttle Chef is now an essential part of our kitchen at home and when on the road.

"....It's just so amazing that it stays so hot for so long!"

Dear Lindi and Allan,

Thanks so much for our wonderful new Shuttle Chef. We are enjoying it very much.

We are using it to take food when we go out, and to prepare dinner early so we can have a relaxed time with the kids before dinner. For BBQ's we pop the meat in when it's cooked so we don't have to coordinate having everything ready at the same time, and the meat is still hot when we eat. Today was a hot summer's day so I made a perfect rice and a stir fry without having the stove on much.

Although we already had a Dreampot, we had a few problems with it. The base of the inner pot was thin, and so food burned easily and we found the base warped a bit with heat, making it difficult to use on electric stoves.

We are very pleased with the Shuttle Chef. It's just so amazing that it stays so hot for so long! The Dreampot used to feel warm on the outside when we hadf something hot in it, but the Shuttle Chef seems to keep all the heat inside. We love the sturdy base on the Shuttle Chef inner pots, they are much better for cooking in, and the food doesn't stick or burn easily on the base,and they don't warp. The other thing that has really stood out is the level of finish. Thermos has done such a beautiful job that makes our old Dreampot look a bit cheap.

Thanks so much for our beautiful time and energy saver, and for the convenienbce...we look forward to doing a bit of experimenting with cakes and puddings...will let you know if we come up with anything particularly good!

Kind regards

"....a single bloke with a big appetite for good food...."

I was first introduced to the Shuttle Chef by my mother who was worried that I was not eating enough and not consuming a nutritious diet while I was studying at University.
I am a single bloke with a big appetite for good food.
The Shuttle Chef meals that she prepared for me were always really welcome (and my room mates would decend vorociously) and I even learnt to cook these meals myself as it required such little effort it could even be done in my room with a little butane stove top.
Since graduating I have moved into my own place and the Shuttle Chef still plays a great part in the food I prepare and eat as it is so easy for me and even if I decide to eat out I can come home and store the food that I had already cooked for another day.

Very happy

"....conscious of the nutritional advantages of Shuttle Chef slow cooking...."

We are a young family and both work long hours with quite a bit of travelling between home and work.
We are both concerned with the quality of the food we eat and try to have home cooked meals whenever possible.
We are conscious of the nutritional advantages of Shuttle Chef slow cooking as all of the nutrients are kept within the saucepan and the meal cannot be overcooked, even the vegetables are cooked to perfection even 10 hours later.
The Shuttle Chef forms a big part of the meals we cook.
We are experimenting with lots of recipes now and it is so easy to adapt most recipes to this style of cooking.

Excellent product

"....the ease and convenience of using the Shuttle Chef is excellent...."

We are a busy family with lots of commitments and not much time available for home cooked meals, however we find that the ease and convenience of using the Shuttle Chef is excellent.
Using the Shuttle Chef allows us to pop on a meal in the mornings as we are racing off to school's etc and when we return in the evening we have an excellent slow cooked, wholesome meal ready for us.
The energy saving alone is excellent however the ability to product delicious meals using the cheaper cuts of meat means that we have an even greater saving at the end of each month.
Thank you for introducing us to the capabilities of the Shuttle Chef

"....no risk of overcooking...."

I wanted to write to you to let you know how delighted we are with our Shuttle Chef.
My husband and I are 2 months into a year of camper trailing around Australia and let me testify that our Shuttle Chef has allowed us to dine in fine style. The casseroles have been flavoursome and the cheapest cuts of meat always tender. We have started experimenting with cake making and find the cakes have been moist, with no risk of overcooking.
It is very satisfying to be able to travel and enjoy a wide variety of delicious foods that have been cooked by a small amount of gas only. It not only appeals to our tastebuds but to our desire to reduce energy consumption. A bonus of the double pot system is that the hot water in the second pot can then be used to wash the dishes.
I would truly say that the most valuable item to come travelling with us has been the Shuttle Chef and other travellers certainly get to hear about it when ever the opportunity arises.

Kind regards
Jaqui and Peter Willsher

"...wow what a difference it made to our afternoon...."

I have cooked in the shuttle chef and it was delicious!!!
I found having the two different pots was great with kids as I was able to make a more simple and bland meal for them, while creating more of a culinary delight for the adults.
I organised all the preparation in the morning (along with school lunches) as you suggested and WOW what an difference it made to our afternoon. No time was taking up with dinner which ment home work done, bedrooms clean and we even managed to fit in a game of snakes and ladders. Thanks again Allan and Lindy.

"... it cooks superbly..."

"We've had our shuttle chef for a short time now and it's been really convenient for us. The standout has been with cooking meals for extended family, one of whom is on a special diet and is not really able to prepare proper meals for himself. It's not just the fact that it cooks superbly, it works for the huge logistic operation in getting everyone fed properly.

"It's not just the fact that it cooks superbly, it works for the huge logistic operation in getting everyone fed properly."
Rather than carrying plates with foil over them in the car, trying to keep them hot and at a time which is never convenient, we're now able to drop meals off, several hours in advance. Time is no longer critical. Better still, our second shuttle chef has just arrived. That means only one shuttle chef exchange each day.

We've been working through the recipes and have found those containing fish to be particularly impressive. I have previously never really had that great a success in cooking fish. It never turns out like the photo in the recipe books. I'm just perfecting "smoked trout and rice" for the shuttle chef, which is showing great promise.

For both the results and the logistics of getting good food on the table on a daily basis, I couldn't recommend the shuttle chef more highly.

"....great flavours and saves time...."

The immediate impression of the Shuttle Chef is that it is a high quality product that will last the years, constructed of quality stainless steel and long-lasting plastics. It is very well constructed and has clearly been through many years of design and improvements.

We have found the Shuttle Chef easy to use. Just ensure it is adequately filled, heat thoroughly and the chef then does the cooking for you. It is amazing that it seems to know just how we like our potatos and meat, almost better than we do, without any overcooking.

Our after-sales questions have been answered happily by Allan and Lindi from ThermalCookware, who we have found very helpful and approachable.

The Shuttle Chef helps save time, with minimal hands-on cooking time. We have also saved money on meat too, one of the most expensive grocery items, because we can use cheaper, but ironically tastier cuts of meat. So far we have tried lamb shanks, chicken curries, stews, soups, and even cakes, but there is plenty more for us to explore.

The money savings go further too, with much shorter cooking times on the stove than other techniques. The vacuum insulation used is quite impressive, keeping steaming hot temperatures through a whole day.

The Shuttle Chef is great for hot meals when out and about camping or travelling, saving you from cooking when weary at the end of a long day, but we have mainly used it to ensure a hot meal awaits us at the end of our busy workdays.

We can recommend this product to anyone that wants great flavour and to save time and money when cooking, but most of all, its fun!

....all I can say is "amazing"....

As I informed you my wife Kathy was preparing our first meal in the Thermal Cookware tonight.

Well I have just finished eating and all I can say is "amazing".
Kathy prepared a stew with Steak and vegetables. 10 mins work this morning, out watching our kids play sport all afternoon, return home, serve up and presto. One of the easiest, tastiest stews I've had. Not with good quality steak but basic old Blade Steak. Thank you, I did some research prior to buying and all I can say is its money well spent. I can see many more meals being prepared in the cookware both at home and whilst travelling aroud Australia in our van.

Thanks again and I will certainly be referring people to you.

"....It's been fantastic...."

Thank you for the offer of a new 6 litre insert for our Shuttle Chef.

It's been fantastic and the new larger insert will be great for big groups.

"....Yes please!...."

Yes please!....I would appreciate the 6 litre inner pot to compliment my Shuttle Chef.

I was finding the 3 litre pot a bit too small for meats...great idea...

We have gotten great pleasure from our Thermal Cooker on our travels in our motorhome.

"... the joy of thermal cooking..."

I found the joy of thermal cooking when I got my first Shuttle Chef from Hong Kong in 1997. This (home version/series model?) has given me years of dedicated service and is still in top condition. Since then, I had also bought the carry version which I found to be particularly useful for Asian pot-luck (this is when friends or relatives have a gathering that requires everyone to bring a dish. It eliminates the host from the stress of food preparation. Shuttle Chef is even more welcome by the host as there is no hassle to keep the food warm until they are ready to be served.). That is why Shuttle Chef can be found in many Asian homes.

With the onset of age, the other benefit I found with Shuttle Chef is that once the food is cooked to the recommended stage, I will not have to worry about remembering to switch off the stove. Many of my favourite dishes require slow cooking over long period and Shuttle Chef gives me the assurance that I will not burn my house down from my cooking.

Please keep me updated with your products and newsletters and thank you for your many innovative recipes.
