Join Tim Barker and the Appropriate Technology class as they explore how to build a better crock pot. The easy bake coffin is an appropriate technology that sort of combines a crock pot and a haybox cooker. This one uses power, but can cook three times the food using less than half the power. And this technology can be scaled down for home use.



The easy bake coffin is a hay box cooker with a tiny, thermostatically controlled heater. With so much insulation, food can cook for days using hardly any power. You can cook 70 gallons of food with less energy than a standard crock pot.

In this 50 minute long video you'll learn how it works, why it works, and the elements you'll need to create one of your own.

Nice idea!  I just emailed davin to see if he might be interested in coming up with such a list complete with a set of plans for folks.  He has done this in the past and sold plans for $20.

An idea for improvement would be to have the silicone heating mats portable inside the unit so that you could use a divider to make the heating space smaller, thus  you could heat up a smaller area.         Having someone stand in front of the camera was annoying when he was speaking, but great information to be had from this.       Combining this with the rocket stove with say,  hot oil that would reach 300 degrees would send this project to the moon       Great ideas here.

Would it be functional to preheat the box to shorten the cold to safe cook time? Also my initial idea was to actually make it sized to cook a reasonable portion of a deer (or cow) either for large meetings or if like our family, a mix of vegans and flexitarians we would only need to process a couple large animals a year to meet our needs and from their would either can or freeze dry to cooked meat for later use, trying to minimize freezers use and shoot for shelf stable storage as much as reasonable. Also wondered how this might pair with a mass heater, since meet processing and heating needs are both midwinter things so multi functional??? Thanks for a great idea, so many variants possible for a very reasonable cost!
