I've done a search here on this subject. There are lots of Dreampot fans but these units are so expensive. I know Thermos brand cooker also exxy but very good. So can anyone tell me about Magic Pot or Magic Cooker brands, or any others which are less expensive. Do they work as well as Dreampots?

I bought a look-a-like from a US seller on ebay a couple of years back. Came to $120 delivered. Every bit as good as a Dreampot. The cookbook was in Chinese (a friend translated bits but the concept of slow cooked pig entrails didn't appeal...). This hasn't stopped us from cooking anything as it's pretty obvious and there have been no failures in terms of cooking thoroughly nor ending up with tasty meals.

There is a NSW seller on ebay at the moment with some very well priced units (no connection etc etc) see item 110362539025

Others if you look in ebay stores and OS.

The price difference between the branded version and the imports pays for a lot of meals and in any case all units are imported.

Hi jdwynn,

Last year i bought a "Hero" brand thermal cooker from the Melbourne 4 x 4 show. We have used it several times and have found it fantastic.

They all work on the same principle of heating the food first then placing it in the Thermal pot for a while.

If you can get to a larger 4 x 4 show at some stage you will find the distributors there for just about everything and they will have their show specials, especially on the last day. A great way to save a few dollars.

Have you considered a Cobb.

Whilst not a thermal cooker is an excellent item and much more versatile.

We grill, bake, roast, bbq etc quite often

Is light to carry and easy to clean
