Thermos Shuttle Chef, A Homemaker's Dream Appliance

If there’s one thing that I was so worried about when Robyn started school, it was our meals. Since I’m in charge of cooking and I cook all of our food, I didn’t know how I will do it once I’m out of the house, in school with Robyn.

Luckily, I shared this concern with a fellow mom in school and she introduced me to Thermal Cookers. I didn’t know anything about it. I actually thought she was referring to a slow cooker or crockpot which I already own. But no, thermal cooker is even better since you don’t use electricity anymore as it cooks your food.

When she talked about her thermal cooker, she mentioned that the brand that she uses is Thermos but that there are other brands in the market that also offer the same.

I looked around and found 2 brands here in the Philippines, Thermos and Imarflex. But since I was going to Hong Kong anyway, I decided to wait and see if I can find one in Hong Kong at a better price tag.

If you’ve seen my Hong Kong vlog, you have probably seen the one that I purchased. I got the Thermos Shuttle Chef.

Cooking is really fun and enjoyable but it also eats all your time preparing and doing it and you have lesser time to do other chores. We from Thermos want’s to give you a helping hand offering you a Cooking Buddy and Kitchen Partner to easy and more enjoyable cooking time!

Key Points and Benefits of using Shuttle Chef:

1. No need for constant supervision
2. Natural taste and nutrients are preserved
3. Reliable, safe and economical
4. Meal is kept Hot

There are different sizes of the Shuttle Chef but I chose the 6 liter thermal cooker. With it, you’ll get 1 6-liter stainless inner pot, 2 3-liter stainless inner pot and 1 outer pot.

Featuring Thermos® brand’s revolutionary vacuum insulation technology, the premium TCRA-series comes with key features such as an improved exterior design for a contemporary look and better grip portable handle design for convenience and portability. A perennial favourite and bestseller since its launch as the world’s first thermal cooker in 1989, the Thermos® Shuttle Chef® has revolutionized cooking with its time-saving and convenient way of retaining food freshness while conserving energy.


Capacity (inner pot) : 6.0L
Dimensions Width × Depth × Height (approx. cm) : 25.5 × 25.4 × 29.4
Weight (approx) : 4.7kg
Colour : Gold

How does it work? You cook your dish the normal way using the inner pot. Cook it on the stove for about 20-30 minutes until it boils. Once it starts to boil, that means it’s ready to be transferred to the outer pot. Once it has been placed inside the outer pot, lock it and it will use its own heat to continue cooking the food.

I thought that this was perfect because I can either use the 6-liter inner pot for soup, or use the 2 3-liter pots and cook 2 different dishes at the same time. It is fully insulated so the dish is going to be kept warm for more than 6 hours. Believe me, I’ve tried it and it kept my dish warm for 9 hours! Did I mention the best part? No need to plug this baby or keep it on an open fire.

This has easily become one of my best kitchen purchases because I literally just have to prepare our food, put it inside my Shuttle Chef and forget about it and come dinner time, it will be waiting for us! I also don’t need to worry about our food drying up as there is no external heat being used such as stove fire or electricity.

I’ve used my Thermos Shuttle Chef a number of times, from Bulalo to Shabu Shabu, Mechado to Adobo. I also used my Shuttle Chef to cook rice. Normally, when I use my 3-liter pot, I cook our meat in one and rice in another.

My most favorite is to use this for Beef. Because as we all know, it takes a long time to tenderize beef. Normally, I would boil beef for abour 2 hours just to make it tender. But I tried to use my Shuttle Chef and it works perfectly without the need for any fire.

Both my husband and I have been sharing this amazing find with friends and families. We’re so impressed and highly satisfied. Since purchasing this, I actually haven’t touched my Slow Cooker or Crock Pot anymore as it already works as such and so much more!!!
