Best isothermal food bag?

I work all day, I don't have a microwave oven and I can't always use my slow cooker.

I'm tired of eating dinner cold, so I believe the best solution is an isothermal food bag. Maybe something like this:



This is also very portable, which is great.

Any tips on this? I know there are may different systems and brands, which one should I choose?

How long does it keep the food warm?

Hello Flavio, and welcome to Discuss Cooking. Since nobody has responded yet, I'm thinking I'm not alone in trying to understand what you want to do.

He's trying to keep his food warm.

Have you used a bag similar to the one he posted? Do you have any recommendations for one?

Hmmm, after he has cooked the food, just how long does he expect to keep the food he's cooked at a safe temperature without expecting the food to be unsafe to eat? That's the question...

Personally, I've used a bag like that to transport a casserole to a destination, where it will be eaten very soon. It sounds to me like he wants to leave the food in there a LOT longer than that. But we'll never know if he never responds. sigh.

Maybe look into a food warmer bag that either is powered by a car cigarette plug or a 110V corded one.

Lol Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, that's it. I'm looking for a way to keep my food warm for a long time (i.e. several hours) or reheat it. A microwave oven is out of the question, I don't have any space in my kitchen and the food tastes a bit weird.

Portable stoves look brilliant, I didn't even know they existed!

Yes, an electric food warmer bag. That would be even more brilliant than a portable stove!

A portable stove isn't that brilliant. You don't want to cook.
