Henkelmann MK2 / Food-container and cooker

Henkelmann MK2
Henkelmann MK2

The Henkelmann MK2 is a comfortable-to-carry food container which also functions both as a cooking pot as well as dinnerware. Heat is generated directly inside. Due to its insulating casing it keeps the heat over a long period of time.
Energy is just supplied at the beginning until the desired temperature is reached. The food is cooked inside of it so slowly and gently, it will preserve valuable nutrients like vitamins and minerals.
As a power supply it uses an electric kettle base from the same product line, so it requires no extra equipment.
Heating foils provide the heat, thermochromic ink makes the cooking process inside visible.
