EasyOven™: A New Chapter
Welcome to EasyOven™ new Blog!
We are so excited to finally announce that EasyOven™ has decided to launch a blog! Our team has been hard at work to make this happen and we are very excited to see everyone’s responses to the posts and recipes in the months ahead. This blog will include a little bit for everyone; some first hand experiences from the team about their experiences using the EasyOven™, travel trips and a couple of our favourite recipes from all around the globe! EasyOven™ has always been at the back of my brain so to be able share it with the world is incredible! Over twenty years ago I came up with a design for a heat retention oven that not only kept the food hot during transport, but could continue the cooking process while in transit, saving time and energy. This early prototype was used when attending gatherings with friends and family, however, even though the design worked well, there was no place for a product like this in the market. Fast forward to the 2010 Brisbane Floods, the opportunity to improve the design and test it had arrived. Three quarters of Queensland, Australia was effected and thousands, including myself, were without power. We distributed EasyOven™ to close friends to trial and only received good reviews! The same thing happened in early 2011 when Christchurch, New Zealand was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Having family living there and in the surrounding towns we immediately sent EasyOven™ for another round of trials, again the reviews were the same. Having been satisfied with the performance of EasyOven™, and with the world becoming more aware of atmospheric pollution, smoke inhalation diseases and increasing costs of living, it was time to release it to the public.
We always knew the EasyOven™ was amazing but these two tests proved that it could not only be used for picnics, hiking, boating or at home but in the Aid and Disaster Relief fields as well. Now-a-days, EasyOven™ is a proud partner of The UN Global Cooking Alliance - Clean Cookstoves. We are working on projects in Africa, exploring opportunities in Nepal and other African Nations to help them combat atmospheric pollution, smoke inhalation diseases, deforestation and increasing costs of fuel.
EasyOven™ is so easy to use! When cooking your fabulous dish, make sure you bring the food to the boil and continue boiling for the recommended amount of time (we have a guide in our recipe book) on the stove, burner or fire before transferring the pot to the EasyOven™.
