Abstract
This article presents a new way of cooking food in regions with fuel shortages. The Heat Retention Box (HRB) works on the principles of thermal insulation. Food is heated up using the traditional methods of cooking before being placed within the HRB. The insulation provided by the HRB enables the food to continue cooking for several hours. The HRB can hold two pots and have a thermal insulation value of RC = 2.2 m2.K/W. Experimental results show that the HRB is able to keep the food above the slow cooking temperature (>65°C) for at least four hours. The paper also outlines how the HRB has been promoted to the community through cooking clubs which provide information on the components and how to construct a HRB.
