58 Wonder Oven sets available at the lowest price EVER!

2 Sep

I know for myself how critical owning a Wonder Oven is to being able to cook with your food storage.  There’s no tool out there to compare it to.  The conservation of fuel saved by using a wonder oven — worst case scenerio — could be what literally saves your family from running out of fuel (and starving) before running out of the food you have stored.

Because I believe having a wonder oven is so important, and because there aren’t nearly enough people who have access to one,  I took on a bigger than normal project this summer.   The problem I believe isn’t that people don’t want to try it, it’s that the pillows themselves are hard to come by.  From their specialized beads to their abnormally angled pattern they’re admittedly a hassle for the average person to make.  On the other hand, buying them pre-made costs between $50-$60 dollars, money that many are skeptical to spend on a couple of bean bag pillows that are somehow supposed to cook your food (something they’ve never actually seen work before).  Knowing first hand all the AMAZING things you can make with a wonder oven , I realized something had to be done to get more of these marvelous tools out there!!

So … I decided to give you an opportunity you’ll never see again.  I have 58 wonder oven sets that now need good homes.

*** THIS DEAL IS SOLD OUT.  Do email me (address:  myfoodstoragecookbook@hotmail.com) if you’re interested in receiving a pattern to make one yourself.***

I traced and cut countless bolts of fabric…

Wonder Oven Sale

Sewed and pinned and sewed, and sewed some more…

Wonder Oven Sale (3)

And FINALLY, filled the pillows with a million tiny foam beads with the help of family and friends.  (No joke, this is how HUGE the bags were!  Now, imagine going through 6 of these bags and you’ll get an idea of how nuts this project has been.)

Wonder Oven Sale (4)

I want YOU to own one for yourself to begin cooking with it

and then be able to share with others what Wonder Ovens can do!

So here’s the deal:

    I want to buy one please! I live in southeast Texas and I’m not afraid of running out of fuel. What I worry about is it being way to hot to start a fire and cook on it! When we had hurricane Katrina and Rita about 5 years ago the heat and humidity was unbearable. So using a wonder oven would be perfect. I learned about the miracle cookers a few years ago and I looked into the price and it was more than I was willing to pay. I started collecting recipes and watching videos in the hopes if sewing one but it was out of my comfort zone in sewing skills. We have our year supply and a little more and I would live to have a wonder over to start learning how to use it with my food storage now. Thank you so much for taking on this project. I feel it is such a little known about way to cook and by you sharing with first-timers we can educate other how to use and make them.

      Awesome, Stacey! One wonder oven coming your way!

    You are an angel. What you have done is truly a labor of love, helping to bless the lives of others. Thank you so much for being able to make this available to so many. I serve in my church as an emergency preparedness specialist to many, many people, helping them get prepared. I love watching the peace preparedness brings to others and listen to their stories of how they are getting prepared. Currently, the area I am especially assisting is in the food storage and various cooking alternatives. I understand the principles behind the wonder oven where the insulating nature of the oven conserves energy. I absolutely think that it is amazing. I do not own a wonder oven but would love, love, love to so I would be able to demonstrate this method to many. Once I could demonstrate it, I could then allow others to borrow it and try it for themselves. When I put on a large emergency preparedness fair this last February, I explained about the Wonder Oven, but was not able to find one from anyone that I could borrow to have on display. As I continue to make presentations to others about preparedness, I would love to have this method of cooking be a part of that. Thank you for considering me, and thank you for doing this for others.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 11:48 am #

      Jacquie, I would be so THRILLED for you to have one to be able to share with others. The invoice is on it’s way to you :)

      • Jacquie Chappell September 2, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

        Thank you, Megan. I feel I’ve won the lottery (only preppers would understand that).

  3. Prepared Housewives September 2, 2013 at 10:58 am #

    What a great thing you’re doing! Hope you don’t mind I shared it on my blog and facebook! Someone just asked me yesterday where they could buy one!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 11:50 am #

      Oh, thanks Jaime! I’m so glad you shared it! You’re the one of the few people who can truly appreciate how crazy this was :)

  4. April Huber September 2, 2013 at 11:03 am #

    The first time I saw this on your blog I was amazed. I had no idea this was even possible. Right now our only emergency way of cooking is a Coleman stove or the gas grill. I really want one of my own so that I can learn how to use it and amaze my friends and family.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 11:52 am #

      Awesome, April! I want you to have one! The invoice is on it’s way.

  5. Susie September 2, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    I’ve been going to make one for months and months. I just couldn’t find the beads that were the right size and kept putting off looking again.
    I would LOVE for you to send me an invoice. THIS is for me. I really think it is going to be needed more than ever. I will use it instead of using power in my crock all day. I will do mostly soups and stews but I can see where you could finish past in it too.
    I will use it for most everything that can finish cooking in a Wonder Oven.
    My husband just got laid off a week ago and no word on when he can go back. I don’t have a job either. This would help with propane costs for sure.
    I have been saving files about this oven and what others that have blogs have cooked. :)
    Mostly I want to show my family but their are some preppers that are just getting into it and I know they would love to learn about it.
    Thanks a bunch for considering sending me an invoice.
    My husband and I are trying to sell our home and want to go off grid so this would be a great help.
    You are so generous and ambitious too. :)

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 11:59 am #

      Wonderful, Susie! You need one of these for sure. I’d love you to have one! Sending the invoice now.:)

      • Susie September 2, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

        YEHA! YIPPEE! :)
        I just got the invoice and paid.
        Thanks “SO” very much,
        Susie

      • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

        Great! I’ll be shipping, btw, this coming Friday once I have a truck to use to cart all the boxes to the post office. A few more days to wait…

  6. Pam Emick September 2, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    Megan i think your link is broken re amazing things To make with a wonder oven?

    -Pam

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 11:40 am #

      Thanks Pam — I linked it to my wonder oven category but forgot that I also categorized this post under that same category. I think I fixed it now, thanks ;)

  7. Avery Bernstein September 2, 2013 at 11:37 am #

    My son has a feeding tube. Instead of feeding him “boxed chemical formula”, we cook his food from scratch and give him REAL FOOD! But he also has a bazillion allergies.
    But having a WonderOven pillow set, I know that we would be able to cook his food and keep him going! (Next, how to power the blender?) ;-) Thank yoU! It would be such a benefit for our son!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

      Just to be sure you understand what a wonder oven is, watch this video and reply back to me if it makes sense as something you’ll really use. The wonder oven pillows don’t actually cook your food on their own, they’re a way of insulating heat or cold after first being brought to temperature. Thanks, let me know.

      • Danielle Swartz September 2, 2013 at 3:10 pm #

        this video is wonderful.

  8. Laura September 2, 2013 at 11:54 am #

    I’m very interested in a wonder oven. I would use it right away to cut electrical expenses. This summer, we’ve hardly the a/c in hopes to save money. Who wants to heat up the kitchen? I will use the wonderoven like I use my crock-pot! Thanks so much for this opportunity to save moola and become better prepared. My daughter’s favorite potato cassorole will cook up nicely. I’ll show it off to my husband, who is so proud that I’m helping our family.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

      Great, Laura. For a potato casserole you might want to check out this post or this post for some ideas on how to do that. Let me know if you get stuck, maybe I can help. Excited for you to get one!

      • Laura September 2, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

        Thanks so much! You’re truly an inspiration!

  9. Jennifer Crumley September 2, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    Thank you for this delightful chance I will do a happy dance Have never owned one in my life Look forward to cooking without the strife Would like to try and make some bread Or perhaps some rice instead If this will get me off the grid I will also flip my lid As a busy mom of nine Am hoping to save a little time Appreciate your labor of love Look forward to trying a wonder stove I mean oven!

    Sincerely, thanks for the opportunity to try a wonder oven at cost. Love the picture of the pellet bag with your daughter!

      Liking the rhyming, haha :)! Gotcha covered, the invoice is on it’s way!

  10. Sorcha September 2, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    I would love to buy one of your wonder ovens. I have a solar oven, but living here on the front range of the Rocky Mountains, electric outage usually comes with clouds. I want to start using one now so I will be used to it the next time a blizzard takes out the elec. I hope to be able to increase the output of my fuel, by cutting the cooking over fire time.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

      Perfect. That’s exactly my point! A solar oven is always the very best choice, but as soon as there’s cloud cover there has to be another “fuel conserving” plan. Thanks so much for reading. The invoice is being sent.

      • socksappeal September 2, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

        Invoice received and paid :)
        I can’t wait to start using the wonder oven. I have a feeling it will be always out, always ready, in my kitchen.

  11. Kami Jensen September 2, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

    I have just recently gotten into food storage. I have always known it was important, but have felt a sense of urgency in the last 6 months. So I have been collecting food, stocking up, reading lots of websites, gathering information. I am very excited to try new things. I saw a wonder oven in action at a Relief Society meeting earlier this year and she made the most wonderful bread in it. That’s what I want to try first. Making bread!! I am just feeling better and better about being more prepared, to be able to provide food for my family when things go bad. It will make all the difference to me. Living in Houston, I have been in situations where there is just no food to buy. The shelves are empty. It is not a pleasant feeling. I would take good care of my new wonder oven. My sister and I would try all kinds of recipes. And I would probably show my Visiting Teachers the wonder oven, as we are all striving to improve our food storage. Thank you sooo very much. You are inspiring!!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

      Great, Kami! I’ll send you the invoice now. Haha, I was probably the one giving the class with the wonder oven bread that you talked about (I also live in Houston). I’ll be teaching some wonder oven specific cooking classes in Oct./Nov. here, I’ll remember to send you the information of when/where. I’m so glad you’ve got the preparedness bug!

      • Stacey Pittman September 3, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

        I’m 2 hrs from Houston and I just bought one too from you. I would love to know when and where also!

      • Megan September 3, 2013 at 11:00 pm #

        Oh sure, I’ll let you know. I should have the dates set up soon.

  12. J Muscato September 2, 2013 at 12:29 pm #

    Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to get one of your Wonder Ovens at such a great price! I’ve been thinking and thinking of getting the materials to make us one but don’t get out for shopping much at all. I do have a Sun Oven (which I love) and feel that a Wonder Oven would really help to round out my food preparation for hard times. I’ve also been thinking that a Wonder Oven would really be a godsend days that the sun gets my food cooking but the weather changes and it cannot finish. Plus I know that I would love to save the lp by starting foods on my stove and finishing in the Wonder Oven like I’ve seen on a couple YouTube channels.

    It would be wonderful if you have enough left that I can be chosen.
    Blessings

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

      You’ve got one coming to you! I’m so glad you have a sun oven! Having and knowing how to cook with a wonder oven is really going to be a great back up plan.

      • J Muscato September 2, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

        THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!

      • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

        You’re so welcome!! They won’t be shipped until Friday (until I have a truck to use), but it’ll be on it’s way soon!

  13. Rebecca September 2, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

    I love this! I live in the desert (Las Vegas) and so of course it makes sense for me to have a sun oven, which I do and I use often. But that last 2 weeks we have had buckets of rain and flooding. I love the idea of having an alternative to the power of the sun, which we have seen much the last couple of weeks. I would love the opportunity to add another resource to my preparedness skills. Thanks so much for the chance.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

      Great! I know you’ll be glad to have one. I’ve just sent you an invoice.

      • Rebecca September 2, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

        Thank you so much! I am so excited :) Your hard work it greatly appreciated!!!!!

  14. Ellen Wolter Perry September 2, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    Oh, my goodness! Wow! We really need a wonder oven! I have been collecting recipes and talking to my husband about it. I have two small children 4 and 6 months and just have not been able to tackle making one myself. As a stay at home Mom, we haven’t been able to afford the ones that I have found on the web. Please pick us! We’d be so grateful!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

      Great, Ellen! The invoice is on it’s way. I’m so happy to be able to include you in on the deal :)

      • Ellen Wolter Perry September 2, 2013 at 1:16 pm #

        Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have a feeling that we will need it desperately this winter in Western NC. Bless you for making this opportunity available to so many.

  15. Lori Morris September 2, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

    I am so excited for this opportunity. I have been intimidated to try my hand at making my own wonder oven. While I have a Sun Oven, I too am on the Wasatch front where a good share of the year is under cloud cover. I would like to have a Wonder Oven to use not only in emergencies but on a regular bases as a way to be more self reliant and also save some money. I have the perfect spot in my kitchen, sharing a corner with my food dehydrator. I would like to master the art of bread making in it as well as my everyday cooking. Please consider me.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 1:24 pm #

      Wonderful, Lori! I’m excited to send you one. You should see the invoice very soon.

      • Lori Morris September 2, 2013 at 1:34 pm #

        Thank you Thank you Thank you. I do appreciate your hard work. (Invoice has been paid.)

  16. Kate September 2, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

    My daughter and I have been talking about emergency preparedness and food storage. As we prepare for the very cold winter months in the north it would be a great peace of mind to know we can start cooking on our propane stove and let it finish in a wonder oven.
    Additionally what a great tool for camping. I will be saving the recipe ideas as well.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

      Great, you’re in!! I’ll send you off an invoice!

  17. Glenda Eslinger September 2, 2013 at 1:27 pm #

    This seems like a wonderful Idea. So much more you can do when the power goes out. Hot or cold weather, you can still make something for your family. We live in an area where the power goes out almost every time the wind changes direction. Would love one of these.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 1:45 pm #

      So, just to be sure, you’re promising me that if I send you one you’ll try it out and learn how to cook with it? My biggest fear is that these sets (my babies now, lol) will go into the infamous “prep closet” never to be seen again. I’m sure the answer is yes but I’ll wait to send you an invoice until I hear your reply ;)

      • Glenda Eslinger September 2, 2013 at 1:56 pm #

        I have been looking at the recipes to see if what I have already canned could be used. I can’t believe the food I have found on here. Love it. I have a 13 mth old that is coming to live with me and by having one of these, I know that I will still be able to tend to his needs also. We are in the process of digging out our root cellar. The set will definitely be put to good use. Thank You for this opportunity.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:45 pm #

      Great Glenda, I just wanted to check to be sure you were serious. I just sent off your invoice and I’m so EXCITED for you to have one :)!

      • Glenda Eslinger September 2, 2013 at 4:23 pm #

        Thank you so much. Payment sent. I can’t wait to use it. Being at least 1/2 hr from town, it will make a big difference in meal prep.

  18. Cheryl Medlin September 2, 2013 at 1:27 pm #

    I grew up in a farm home where canning and food storage for lean months was the norm. It wasn’t called ‘prepping’, it was just a way of life. We lived in the country in South Alabama where hurricanes and storms could knock out power for days or even weeks. As an adult, I have always kept 2-4 weeks of food and supplies in the house as a norm, not as a prepper. But in the last couple of years, as our economy and lives have gotten so much more unstable, I’ve begun storing more and more food and supplies and creating alternative plans.

    What do I plan to do with my wonder over should I be chosen? Definitely test some of our favorite comfort foods. It will become an integral part of our preparedness storage.

    How will I use it to become better prepared in cooking with food storage? I can see taking turns test cooking so that we all become comfortable with it. (My husband and grown daughter and I share a large home with my sister-by-choice and her family, so there are 6 of us who contribute to cooking.)

    What specifically do I want to learn to make with it? Stock favorites of the family – chicken and dumplings, beef stroganoff, dinner ‘pies’, breakfast casseroles, etc. The things that we enjoy eating now. That is how my storage works – we buy what we like now so we know we will eat then.

    Who do I want to show it off to? We have many friends who, like us, are gradually increasing our supplies so that we can be self-sufficient for a year or more. Several of us have been discussing a common bug out location if one becomes necessary for support. Every single one of them would be shown and possibly benefit from my being chosen.

    Regardless of whether I am chosen or not, I think what you’ve done here is an awesome thing! I have many skills, but sewing isn’t among them beyond a few hand stitches for mending. This is an awesome thing you’ve done here.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 1:35 pm #

      Wow, you’re it girl! In fact you should probably be the one to teach me a few things ;) Awesome, I’m SO happy to send one of these sets to you. The invoice is on it’s way now.

      • bamacheryl September 2, 2013 at 1:42 pm #

        Oh wow. Thank you, Megan, so much!!

  19. Melissa Scott September 2, 2013 at 1:49 pm #

    I first want to thank you for this opportunity! I would love to purchase a wonder oven. Over the past year I have really felt a strong push to become more self sufficient. I am married with two children and I feel that one thing that I can do for my family is to be prepared. I have slowly been trying to build our food storage and preparedness items. Your site has been a tremendous help. With the kids going back to school I want to work even harder on building our food storage, and I want to build a binder like yours. I had never heard of a wonder oven until I found your blog, and it is on my list of preparedness items. I think variety is not only the spice of life, but also a great thing to have in an emergency situation! You cannot rely on any one thing to take care of your needs, which is why I truly would love to have a wonder oven. It would definitely get used in a good home!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

      Wonderful!! I want you to have one!! The invoice is off, I’ll be shipping them off on Friday and you’ll have it soon! I’m so glad you’ve found help preparing here. Your wonder oven is going to be an awesome addition to becoming better prepared.

  20. Missy Poulsen September 2, 2013 at 1:56 pm #

    I am so excited to have heard about this! I have been storing food for about 4 years now, but honestly it is so intimidating to think about! I just recently started to branch out and learn new ways to cook with my food storage! This is an AMAZING product. I’m excited that it is something I can incorporate into everyday life. I am learning new recipes all the time, but i think i woukd start out with something easy like rice. (Again with being intimidated!) My husband and I are trying to become more self reliant in all aspects of our life. This would be a great help. I would love to see the reaction on some of my families faces when I tell them thus helped cook Sunday dinner! What a great service you are offering! Thanks!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

      I’m excited to send you one! Rice is a great place to start! I love making rice because the Wonder Oven is the ONLY way I can make rice without it sticking to the bottom of the pot. Once you’re ready to move on, check out the “Wonder Oven Cooking” category here on the blog. There you’ll find a whole ton of recipes/ methods for cooking with it. Your invoice is on it’s way!

  21. tamarack222@gmail.com September 2, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

    I would really like a Wonder Oven….I have missed multiple chances at my ward to get one, I was always out of town, out of money or something, and have really felt left out. Please let me have one, I can use PayPal. Thank you so much….

      Oh great, Claudia. Since you’re nearby you can bypass the need for a shipping charge if you just want to come over and pick it up. I’ll send you an email.

  22. Lynelle Swensen September 2, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    What a wonderful thing you have done. I would really, really love to have a wonder oven. I first heard about them years ago but never seemed to have the time to put one together.Something always seemed to get in the way. As the economy has been worsening we’ve been trying to find alternative cooking resources so that we can be prepared just in case we lose our electricity or can’t cook using our stove or microwave to conserve. I’ve used a sun oven but a wonder oven could do so much to replace crockpots or pots on the stove. Trying to feed a family of seven during the winter takes creativity so as not to run up the electric/gas bills. I want to learn to rely more on alternative cooking so that we can save money for other needs. I would really love and appreciate a wonder oven. I would use it quite often. Thank you!

    • Lynelle Swensen September 2, 2013 at 2:03 pm #

      oops…I got too excited about this that I forgot to mention that I would love making soups and stews with the wonderoven. I can add so much into a pot from our food storage and let the wonderoven do the cooking.

      • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

        Great!! That’s perfect. We love soups and stews from it…especially on busy nights when dinner gets served somewhere other than home ;)

  23. LaVerne Hawkins September 2, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

    Oh, this sounds like something I really need. I am so concerned about preparing, and am preparing not only for myself, but for our adult kids and their families (who have decided to come home if every there’s an emergency). We live in the country and our electricity is “iffy” at the best of times. Having one of these would make my life so much less stressful! Thank you for doing all that work, and for making these available to us. Blessings to you for your generosity! May I share a link to your site with like-minded friends?

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:18 pm #

      LaVerne, I just sent you an invoice for one. So excited to have you along for the ride. Please let me know if there’s anything you get confused on as you go along, my email is myfoodstoragecookbook@hotmail.com.

      Oh and yes, please, do share my blog address with friends. We’ve all got to stick together in this preparedness endeavor ;)

      • LaVerne Hawkins September 2, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

        Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! This sounds perfect. It’s nice to know I can warm things and then let them continue cooking without wasting lots of fuel. I love this idea. Do you sell the pattern, by the way? These would make GREAT gifts! (PS – Invoice PAID!!! :) )

  24. Virginia Dolan September 2, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    I keep explaining the wonder oven to my husband and he doesn’t believe it. I would love to prove to him how it works. I have been assisting in getting the message of preparedness out to as many people as I can. I would love to show others how this works. I was amazed when I saw it.
    I have bought 3 sets of beads from you, for me and my daughters. Since I now work fulltime don’t have time to sew together the pillows. I would love to pay you to sew the pillows for me. Just cutting the fabric would be helpful. Please let me know if you would be interested in doing this

    I appreciate all your hard work and trying to get the message of preparedness out to as many people as you can.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

      Oh sure, I can do that. I’ll send you an email and we can work out the details.

  25. Karalyn Barton September 2, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I would love a chance to get a wonder oven. I have been trying a make shift one with blankets inside a cooler and that works ok. I would love to be able to get one of your Wonder ovens. Here in Wyoming, my sun oven does not work so good with the wind and super cold weather, so I am trying to find more alternatives for cooking food. I am so excited to be able to try several recipes with the Wonder Oven that have not worked out so good in my blankets and cooler version. I would love to show my husband that this method can really work!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 2:56 pm #

      Great, Karalyn, you’re getting one! I’ll send you off an invoice now :)

  26. Rachel Lear September 2, 2013 at 3:06 pm #

    Megan, I would love one of these wonder ovens because I have very limited income, nor do I have time to make my own… I saved all your instructions and links hoping to get it done, but I know it won’t happen. Having 3 disabled children is an unusually demanding experience. I’ve had extra health challenges of my own recently. My boys need a mom that can provide for them in all ways. This is another way to do that! I have food storage, but do not have a sun oven or wonder oven, because of the expense. I’ve been so grateful for your blog, and even linked yours on mine about your bread recipe some time ago. To be able to use your wonder oven directions to save power would not only save us gas during an emergency, it would keep our house cooler… which is a need for my boys yet again… they have an unknown genetic disorder that causes seizures, autism, and severe overheating from normal comfort level temps, as well as the sun and physical activity. We have to keep the house at or below 67, use ice packs and sun shades when out, it’s sort of crazy. But they are so worth it! Anyway, that’s my reason- my boys. And it would be fun to share using it and links to yours again, on my blog. :) Thanks for what you do!! Rachel

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 3:28 pm #

      Oh Rachel, you my dear are awesome. I can only imagine having all of that to do and I’d sincerely love for you to have one! Once you’ve shown it to a couple of people I’m sure someone will find it very handy that you already have the pattern and instructions :)

  27. Danielle Swartz September 2, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    Ohmygoodness! This is so fantastic! I would use this in my house SO MUCH! We have a tiny kitchen, so our big problem happens when we’re waiting for stuff to finish cooking so we can put the next thing on the stove or in the oven! On top of that, in the last couple months I’ve really started to be prepared for the worst, and this would clearly be fantastic for that. I also help with a lot of food parties (can you imagine how awesome this would be!) and in the kitchen at church. I bet we could make these in my crafting group (we craft together and give our crafts to fundraisers, or have fundraisers for good causes. New this year, we did a fundraising craft sale and the profits went to buying school supplies for low income kids. We raised more than $300 to buy school supplies. It was AMAZING) I would LOVE to show everyone I know about this.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 3:30 pm #

      Super!! That’s what I wanted to hear!! The invoice is on it’s way now :)

  28. Quyen September 2, 2013 at 3:20 pm #

    I recently just started preparing my family for any catastrophic events. I think this would be an awesome item to add to my stockpile. I also like trying new projects and would have a lot of fun testing the wonder oven out and trying new recipes.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

      Great!! I’m sending you the invoice, watch for it in your email box. Thanks for reading!

  29. Angel September 2, 2013 at 3:21 pm #

    I would love to purchase this for my mom. She has just recently decided that being prepared was the only way to be able to not have to be dependent on others.They live in an area that has been heavily hit by hurricanes in the past few years. The solar oven is a little too big for her to carry when they evacuate, the wonder oven would be great. She would have sewn her own if we would have found out about it a few years ago, but she can no longer sew. I know my mom would cook beans and bread as she has plenty of supplies to do this and she wants to be sure she knows how to do everything when the next hurricane hits. Being able to purchase this for my mom would help my fears when I can not reach her after a hurricane. I will know she can fix food no matter what conditions the hurricane leaves her town in. Thank you for sewing all of these for those of us who are trying to inform and help our families Lean to prepare for life’s emergencies.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

      Okay, I’m offically breaking my rule of “not buying for other people” due to your kind words about your mom and her preparedness mindset. You’re hereby promising me with an unbreakable promise that it’ll get used! ;) Your invoice is on it’s way.

      • Angel September 2, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

        I give you my word. You have made two happy ladies. Thanks so much. She is so excited.

  30. Pam September 2, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    I would love this chance! This is the first time I have even heard of this oven. What a wonderful thing you are doing. We have been getting things together slowly (when $$) allows to prepare the family for “what if?” So far, it has just been dry storage items, with not any clear plan on what to do with it. This would really help me!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

      Great Pam! There are so many things you can cook in it once you understand how it works. Please promise me that you’ll be willing to dive in an learn how to use it after you have one to use. Everything to teach you is here on the blog, just look under the “Wonder Oven Cooking” category up at the top. Once you get started you’ll love it forever. I’ll just be waiting for your verbal promise and then I’ll send you the invoice :)

      • Pam September 2, 2013 at 4:56 pm #

        I promise!

      • Megan September 2, 2013 at 6:15 pm #

        Okay, I got your invoice off! Enjoy!! Be sure to let me know if you have questions along the way!

  31. Beth Holland-Sharer September 2, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    My husband and I have been “preparing” for several years, just in case! Well, I think the “just in case” is here. My daughter and son in law just moved in with my 5 grandkids! My intention was to try to make one but with all the kids and activities around here I am finding it hard to cook, much less sew. I promise this would be well loved and used. I was telling my friends about it and they said I needed to prove it to them so my plan is to have a huge dinner party to “prove” it to them~ Thanks,
    You rock!!!!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

      Awesome Beth!! I’m SO excited to send you one then! The invoice is on it’s way now!

  32. Dianna Annette Morales September 2, 2013 at 4:33 pm #

    Wow you are such a sweet person to offer this amazing cooking element up at that price! I have always wanted one because I am working really hard at learning new things. I first started with food storage and while it isn’t perfect it is great and those (friends and family) I have talked to about it now call me for advise on how to Start.
    Now here are the answers you are wanting;
    With a wonder oven It would open up my prepardness world because at this point I can only cook with the oven. I can cook with a BBQ and a camp fire but living in a place where its 100 degrees in the summer who wants to BBQ or make a camp fire in the yard just to off grid cook, to
    use less gas and electricity or work on being more prepared! I really want to learn how to cook using other elements that are off grid, use less gas and electricity but oh the cost for a
    Sun oven, wonder over and
    Other cooking elements is just
    not in the budget right now, just how many of us are living in this economy!
    Now whom would I show this off too; easy, my mom, my good friends Laura and Darlene all of whom have asked me to help them with begining food storage and to be able to add a new element to their learning and show them the item is worth the cost would be nice! So if you have one left I would love to buy one, and take it off your hands so you have more for new projects! ;)

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

      Super, Dianna! My payment is all of these awesome comments from people who are so EXCITED about getting a Wonder Oven. Lol, I’m feeling a little like Oprah when she gives away cars :D

      I got your invoice sent off! I’m so THRILLED that you’re getting one. You’ve been so sweet supporting me all this time on the blog.

  33. Carrine Judy September 2, 2013 at 4:46 pm #

    Wow, this is so incredible. I am a mom of 6 and have felt the pull to prepare. I would hate for my kids to suffer because of something I didn’t do. I feel pretty good about my start on storing food, but now I need to figure out how to cook it without power! Wonder ovens sound incredible, unfortunately I’m one of those people who are all thumbs when it comes to sewing! They even sound like something i could train my older girls (ages 13 and 10) how to use. I would love the opportunity to own one of these.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

      Wonderful! I’ll send you an invoice. It’ll take some digging in to learn how to cook with it but it sounds like you have the right motivation. Please don’t hesitate to email me (or comment) if something you read in the recipes here is confusing. This is probably the BEST tool you could own outside of having a sun oven.

      • Carrine Judy September 2, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

        Yeah! I’m so excited!

  34. Andrea September 2, 2013 at 5:21 pm #

    Megan, I don’t need a wonderbox, I have several. In fact we made a bunch as a church activity a few years ago and I use mine on a regular basis. Just wanted to comment and let you know how I love to see people helping other people like you are with this offer. Good on ya ;)

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 5:36 pm #

      Thanks so much for that thoughtful comment!

  35. Kathy T September 2, 2013 at 5:23 pm #

    My family and I would really like one of the Wonder Ovens you made. The thought of making one is too intimidating to me! In order to learn how to use it, I’ll have my kids add “Wonder Oven 101″ to their (homeschooling) Culinary class and I’ll learn right along with them. I’m also thinking that the Wonder Oven will be wonderful for healthy food eating on those long road trips to watch the kids play basketball. Instead of eating a hotdog or nachos at the concession stand, I can feed the team pulled pork sandwiches or beans and rice or…….I would show the Wonder Oven off to anyone who walks by us outside the gyms while we’re eating. I’d also share it with several friends who are likeminded about preparing, but don’t have alternative means of cooking. We live in a high altitude that gets a lot of snow/cloud cover and a Sun Oven won’t work year round. Thank you for this opportunity!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 5:31 pm #

      I love it!! I home schooled for 5 yrs…Wonder Oven 101 is a great idea. Kids love seeing things get “cooked” in it! I just sent off your invoice.

  36. Paula herron September 2, 2013 at 5:29 pm #

    Oh, I would so love to purchase a wonder oven. In July my husband and I decided to make a huge life hanging decision…we are going off grid. To start this process I made a six month plan to cut out all electricity in my kitchen. After talking with a friend, who by the way owns a wonder oven, I came to the conclusion that I really really wanted one. Took the time today to research on the computer and this led me to you!
    We live in Oklahoma and are a couple of months into our plan. I have already gotten rid of all small electrical goodies from the kitchen and your wonder oven would go a long way in getting rid of one of the biggies,my stove. I hope to learn to cook with it and offer my family of 6 some great meals. Please consider me for one of your offers! Thanks for thinking of us newbies!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 5:40 pm #

      Wow!! What perfect timing! Just don’t turn off your computer for a while…as you search the blog here to learn how to cook with it ;) I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to give you one. Sending the invoice off right now.

      • Paula herron September 27, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

        UPDATE: I have been using my new wonder oven a lot! Today I ventured to make a barbecue pork roast for sandwiches. Took all day in the wonder oven but it was worth it not to have to use the electric one! It is definitely a learning need but with practice I will get there. Thank you again for your gift to my family!

      • Megan September 27, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

        Thanks for the comment, Paula! What a fun gift for you to send to me to read. I’m so glad you got one!! :)

  37. Theresa Everest September 2, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    How do you use it? Can I really cook to feed my family with it? Can I bake bread, casseroles, make a cake? I’m trying to be prepared for any emergency but it’s really hard when you have to learn everything all over again. I don’t know what to tell you to convince you that I need one. However, if not chosen, please consider sharing your knowledge so that I try to prepare better for my family. Thanks.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 5:58 pm #

      Hi Theresa! The principle behind it is insulation. So while they don’t INDEPENDENTLY cook food, if food is brought to a hot temperature and then put in between the two pillows it will keep boiling water boiling for 11-18 hours. It’ll likewise keep frozen foods frozen. This video demonstrates it well. I’d love to send you a set if you are interested in learning to incorporate it into your preparedness plans, so just let me know! :)

      • Megan September 2, 2013 at 6:00 pm #

        I wanted to add that yes, you really can “bake” bread in it and many many other things. You can see all that I’ve shared here on it by going to the “Wonder Oven Cooking” category tab (under the categories tab at the top) and scrolling through.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

      I decided to send you an invoice and I’m leaving it up to you! I’m here to help you along the way and all the Wonder Oven recipes here are detailed like crazy to show you how to use it if you decide to go ahead with it. If not (meaning if I don’t hear back w/in a day or so) I know I can find someone else for it. I want you to have the chance though if you want it. :)

  38. Jessica Eccles September 2, 2013 at 6:27 pm #

    Making one of these has been on my to-do list for a couple of years now, I’ve just never managed to find decent pricing for the filler (for just one). I would LOVE one. (Not sure if you’re all out yet…I lost count of the replies.) I’m excited to experiment with all sorts of things, like baking bread in the summer without heating up the house. What a great way to save on electricity and practice for those emergencies. I would totally share my excitement with all of my sisters at church, neighbors, friends and family! Maybe through my excitement I can convince enough people to go in on a bag of filler with me!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:46 pm #

      Got one for you!! I’ll send you along a pattern and instructions in case you get a group together; and you’re right, that’s definitely the cheapest way to go. The invoice is sent…lucky day for you!

  39. Kim September 2, 2013 at 6:34 pm #

    I would love to come home from my 12 hour work day to a meal ready to go to the table! I work out of town and I get uneasy leaving something plugged in to cook all day or have the oven going all day. I’m sure my husband and son would love to have a real homemade meal more than they have been getting lately! I am so amazed at all of the possibilities that can be made with a “beanbag”! Our long range plan is to be off the grid as much as possible for our location and this would be a great asset to our plan. I would love to purchase one of your Wonder Ovens and not only have a meal ready to go but be able to not worry if the power has gone of again!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:42 pm #

      Well I’m so glad to be able to help you out with that! Making a meal and leaving it until I’m ready is one of my favorite things about Wonder Oven cooking! It’s totally for the “busy” mom, so you’re going to love it! Invoice on it’s way!

  40. gina stephens September 2, 2013 at 6:59 pm #

    Oh my goodness, what a fantastic opportunity! I don’t know if you have any left but we would be thrilled to have one. My husband has been doing the brunt work of all our prepping and I have promised myself and my family to get more involved and take over the areas I know most about which would be cooking and child care prep! I was just researching alternatives to be able to cook for my family. We have so much food storage I have been wanting to cook with and experiment with before we are in trouble. If I had a Wonder Oven I would cook bread and prep all our beans and rice first! I would probably move on to casseroles and other baked goods after that. As far as showing it off I m definitely going to show my friend Natalie who is my prepper buddy and always teaching me new things and of course my husband, I can’t wait to show him how on board I am with helping our family. How exciting …it always seems as though when you finally make the decision to help yourself the road rises to meet you. Thank you!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

      Sounds great! And, yes, there are still some left so you’re in luck!! I’m so glad you got in on it! :) Sending your invoice out now.

      • gina stephens September 2, 2013 at 8:43 pm #

        Thank you so much!! Thank you!!!

      • gina stephens September 2, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

        do you ship USPS or UPS? It makes a difference when I fill in my shipping address. Thank you!

      • lifewithnatsprat September 2, 2013 at 9:09 pm #

        OH MY GOSH! GINA!!!! I’m the prepping buddy! Hahah! <3 <3 <3 If I get one, we can cook together!!! AAAAAH!!!!

  41. Claudia Love September 2, 2013 at 7:16 pm #

    I’m so excited about your offer to help others fulfill their dream of owning their own wonder oven! I, too, was one of the many who wanted a wonder oven but the task of sewing the bean bags looked daunting, and it was too expensive to buy. I have been receiving your posts via email for a while now and this offer is just another bonus to viewing your website. Thanks!

    We have a large family (8 children, three married) and constantly feel the need to prepare for any kind of disaster. Our whole family meets once a month to discuss preparedness topics such as first aid, 72 hour kits, and yes, wonder ovens!

    I have felt that because I live so close to my oldest daughter (she has 4 children and one on the way) that I would probably be sharing my food storage with her. So if I am able to purchase one of your wonder ovens, my idea would be for us to earn how to cook with it together. I think if a disaster struck it would be very important for her family to have good, healthy, nourishing meals. Now is the time to learn to make those nourishing meals in a wonder oven.

    To begin with I think we would want to learn how to make comfort foods, breads and desserts. Her husband is very imaginative and also a very good cook. I’m sure he would have some wonderful ideas of how we could use the oven and what recipes would be good. Using the wonder oven would give us another advantage, lower utility bills. If we could cut our costs by using less energy, that would be a huge plus!

    I also believe that it takes one person to get things going for a whole family. If I can be that one person who can show that it isn’t that hard to learn a new way to cook that it will help a family now and definitely help when an emergency exists, then it will all be worth it.

    I would very much like to purchase one of your wonder ovens, and I would like to be able to email you back describing our successes and talk about our failures.

    Once, again, thank you for your extremely generous offer and for the time you took to make all of these wonder ovens.

    Sincerely,

    Claudia Love

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

      What a great thing to do as an extended family!! That’s just wonderful. I’d love to send one out to you so you can “officially” include this tool in your preps. The invoice is on it’s way over!

  42. KRISTIN THOMPSON September 2, 2013 at 7:17 pm #

    Wow- that is a lot of sewing–Thank you for taking the time to do this!! We all know “ITS Coming” whatever IT is- this will help everyone be more prepared- when you are more prepared, you have more peace in your life. That is what I am striving for, more peace by being more prepared!! I have read your blog and have taken several of your ideas and put them into place at our house, and they are working out quite well!! Thank you Again.you have no idea how much you are helping our family and friends!!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:31 pm #

      Thanks for that, I’m glad to be able to help and it’s so nice that it’s being appreciated over on your end. :)

      • KRISTIN THOMPSON September 15, 2013 at 10:29 am #

        Any chance you will be on another sewing binge-I would love to get one, or are you going to publish the pattern? Again Thank you for all your work, we appreciate it more than you know, Thanks

      • Megan September 15, 2013 at 7:58 pm #

        Thank you! The pattern itself can be found (in addition to other places) by following this link. I’ve offered to mail out paper patterns to readers only because the pattern as given on the web is difficult to interpret (it’s given in angles and it’s a large pattern). I don’t see another “big sew” in the near future but if I do you all will be the first ones to hear about it :)

  43. Gloria Goss September 2, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    We have been going to try and make us a wonderoven and when I saw this I was so excited. I am the mother of4 girls and 1 son and we have really been trying to work together to get us all prepared for what is coming our way. I would like to make rice, roasts and all the yummy breads.I don’t have a paypal account and could we make other arrangements. Thankyou so much for all the time you spend helping all of us out. Sincerely Gloria

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

      Sure, no problem. I’ll send you an email with my address and you can mail out a money order or cashiers check for the amount. :)

  44. Erin Mollie September 2, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

    Please tell me they are not all gone. I was playing in the creek with my kids as promised and was not at my computer when a good friend e-mailed me. I have been wanting one of these forever. I saw them at a church meeting and have been trying to explain the concept to friends forever. I get nothing but quizzical looks you know the deer in the headlight look! I would love, love, love one of these so people (including my own family members) won’t think I’m crazy! Plus I would love not being afraid to leave my home, I always worry the crock pot or another appliance will make my home explode. The ones you made are adorable! You can’t get a cuter over than that. You make wonderful wonder ovens and I need one!!!
    p.s. I’d love to have you as a guest blogger on my blog and share your amazing talent!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 8:54 pm #

      Nope, they’re not gone yet, so **hurray**you’ve got one coming! I’m sending off the invoice now…

      Thanks for the offer to guest blog, I’m sure I’d love to. Shoot me an email as to what you have in mind. myfoodstoragecookbook@hotmail.com

  45. preppingwithnatsprat.blogspot.com September 2, 2013 at 9:06 pm #

    OH.MY.GOSH. Is this for real! Haha! Our family has been working overtime this year to get our food storage in order and start working on other emergency essentials. I have a sun oven on my wish list…but this sounds even better! We have all this food storage now and I have been stressing about how to cook it to feed our 3 kiddos in a grid down situation. :/ This is AMAZING! Bless your heart…WOW. Your blog is fantastic, I am so happy to have found you! I have a feeling I will be up all night glued to the computer reading your posts! Hahah!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 9:32 pm #

      YAY!!! Yes, I’ve still got some, you’re a lucky duck! I’m sending you off an invoice!

      • lifewithnatsprat September 2, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

        AAAAH!!!! I am SOOO excited! Thank you SO much!!! Oh my gosh, this totally makes my day! <3

  46. Brenda Humphrey September 2, 2013 at 9:14 pm #

    Oh, I hope they aren’t all gone! I’ve looked and looked at these and kept thinking…maybe I could make one?? Except that I happen to be “sewing challenged!” so I’ve been afraid to try! I can see myself not waiting for emergency cooking, I would love to use this all winter for soups and stews to save money on energy and in the summer we wouldn’t have to heat up the house (we don’t use conditioning) I love all the patterns you used. They are so cute :)

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 9:28 pm #

      Oh, I’m so glad you got in when you did!! Yes, I’ve got under 10 remaining now, but you’re in!! Invoice is on it’s way :)

      • Brenda Humphrey September 2, 2013 at 9:59 pm #

        Me too!!! Thank you so much :)

  47. Mary Adams September 2, 2013 at 9:36 pm #

    Hi,
    I would so appreciate one. I have been fretting over how to solve this challenge! Please count me in if you still have some!!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

      YOU’VE got the last one, Mary! YAY!!

  48. Esther Stone September 2, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    Me too! Me too! I’ve now got several renewable ways to cook, but none that work like this. I was planning on making one, but I would be delighted to buy one from you! I now use my solar oven several times a week. I’d love to add this to my renewable options.

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 9:51 pm #

      You’ve got it!! You’re lucky too… only TWO left! I’m sending you the invoice now.

  49. gina stephens September 2, 2013 at 10:13 pm #

    Megan, do you ship UPS or USP? Thank you!

    • Megan September 2, 2013 at 10:17 pm #

      It’s going to be USPS going standard. It was the cheapest way to ship (after having the boxes donated so I didn’t have to buy boxes).

  50. Kristi September 3, 2013 at 10:17 am #

    I’m not sure if I’m in time or not, but I would love to try a wonder oven! It seems like it would work so well during the hot summers, so the kitchen oven wouldn’t need to heat up the house for hours on end.

    Thanks so much for your generous offer!

    • Megan September 3, 2013 at 11:23 am #

      I’d love to, unfortunately I’m out of sets to sell now. If there are any orders that fall through though you’re #4 on the waiting list for one. I’ll email you if that happens :)

      • Kristi September 3, 2013 at 11:36 am #

        I thought I might be too late. Thanks for your response, though.

  51. Tara September 5, 2013 at 11:45 am #

    I see that you sold out! That’s great thank you for helping so many with this offer. We have just been talking about lowering our monthly expenses and I think this would be a great way of doing so while also learning to be a bit more self sufficient. I would love to be on the waiting list and if that doesn’t work out I would love the pattern! Thanks for your site I just found it and I am so excited to explore and find new ways to use my food storage. :-)

    • Megan September 5, 2013 at 2:19 pm #

      Welcome! Thanks for the comment. Sure, I’ll add you on just in case there are some available in the end. If that doesn’t work out I’ll send you an email about mailing off a pattern.

        Thanks so much!

    Hi Megan. Please add me as #5 (or whatever the next number is) on the waiting list.

    Thanks you.

    Would love to have the pattern. I have a couple child size beanbag chairs that are no longer being used and think this would be a great way to recycle those beads.

    • Megan September 5, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

      I agree! Just double check the bean bag chairs to be sure the beads are foam, not hard plastic. I’ll send you an email to get your address. :)

    Please put me on the waiting list too. These are wonderful for keeping cooking costs and heat down. May I buy a pattern since you are out of the pillows? Thank you so much for all your efforts o this project. I own a Saratoga Jack Thermal cooker which I use sometimes, but I found that it is hard to fill it up with the right amount of food. These Wonder Ovens are so much easier to use since you can vary the size of the pan used. Also, using it to keep things cold is a great added bonus.

    • Carolyn September 6, 2013 at 12:16 pm #

      I forgot to add that the thermal cooking method cooks beans better than any other method I have used. The beans are tender all the way through, but not mushy. Adding some Ajwain or Epazote helps with the gas problem too. Brown rice is perfectly done as well.

      • Megan September 6, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

        Very true! And they don’t burn being cooked this way, either, which is great. I’ve got you on the list, Carolyn. I’ll be letting you know by the first of next week if there’s one available.

  55. Gloria September 9, 2013 at 7:59 am #

    Hi Megan, Looks like I came “late in the game”. :( I would very much like to get one of your sets! If you are not making any soon could I obtain a pattern? I have a friend that could help me make one since I don’t sew. The video posted earlier is excellent too! Thank you for your generosity!!!

    • Megan September 10, 2013 at 6:23 am #

      Sure, Gloria. I’ll contact you by email to let you know how it all shakes out (probably by the end of this week). If there’s not one left I can certainly send you a pattern. Thank you!!

      • Gloria September 16, 2013 at 9:55 am #

        Thank you!

    [There is hope] In the event that one of the wonder oven requests falls through, I would love to purchase one from you. I have been telling all of my friends and family about these wonder ovens, yet I don’t even have one. (smiling) It might make better sense if I actually had one to show people. I’ll stay tuned for your feedback. And by the way …. OMG …… that was ALOT of sewing that you did. AWESOME!!!

    • Megan September 11, 2013 at 11:58 pm #

      Thanks Landra! And will do! I’ll get back to you if there is one or else give you another option to get one. Do you sew?

      • Landra Harris September 12, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

        I don’t sew. Don’t laugh .. I have the pattern and even cut it out its a very pretty brown with pink and blue flowers…. and then came the sewing issue. Crickets….. complete silence :)

      • Landra Harris September 14, 2013 at 5:16 pm #

        Fingers crossed … any cancelations yet?

      • Megan September 15, 2013 at 12:20 am #

        Watch your email. I’ll send you a note.

  57. joyfulmn@yahoo.com September 13, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

    Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!!!! I received mine yesterday and the color is PERFECT for me. (lime green) It is so cheery and brought joy to my heart from the first glimpse. I used it for steel cut oats today. Even though I didn’t leave it overnight yet I can see it would be useful for getting up to a hot breakfast. :) I can’t wait to try more things in it!

      Oh that makes me happy to hear!! Thanks for the note, Joy!

  58. kbaldwinski September 16, 2013 at 6:08 pm #

    I just received this post in my email and forwarded it on to others without looking to see how many responses you’ve had. Are there any left?

    I’m the food storage specialist AKA Provident Living Coordinator and don’t have one, but would like to learn more about using them.

    • Megan September 16, 2013 at 9:12 pm #

      I’m sorry, I don’t have any left now. If you have a group that’s interested maybe you can go in together on beads and have a sewing day. You can visit this post to find a good source online for the beads and if you need a pattern I’d be more than happy to send you one.

  59. Brenda Humphrey September 16, 2013 at 9:11 pm #

    I received my wonder oven and it’s so cute! Thank you so much for all the work you put into it. Can’t wait to use it.

    • Megan September 16, 2013 at 9:13 pm #

      Great, Brenda! Glad to hear it! Thanks for the note back!

  60. Karalyn September 17, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    Got my wonder oven last week. Used it and it works great! I had a long handled pot and it still worked good! I simmered my soup for 15 minutes, put it in the wonder oven for 3 hours while I was at some games. The potatoes, and carrots were cooked and it was yummy. Thanks again for all your work!

    • Megan September 17, 2013 at 1:14 pm #

      Oh, I’m SO happy to hear that! Thank you for coming back to tell me. You’re very welcome :)

  61. Betty Larsen September 18, 2013 at 12:33 am #

    Dear Megan, I just saw your incredible deal thru an email from a friend. Are you sold out? How much would you charge to make another? I have wanted one of these for 4 years since I saw one @ a church meeting. They were going to help us make one then it fell through. My daughter in law has one & has been telling & sharing wonders she’s made with it. My husband passed away 2 years ago next month. 2 months after that the job we had been doing at Costco for 8 1/2 years ended. I am now a substitute teacher & juggling 2 other jobs to make ends meet, but slowly getting out of debt, so excited but been using more & more food storage. I also feed the sister missionaries about once a month. But where can I get one of your ovens? Please let me know. Thanks so much!

    • Megan September 19, 2013 at 11:09 pm #

      Betty, I sent you an email with more information. Did you get it?

  62. Cherie Spencer September 23, 2013 at 11:54 am #

    Megan, I will truly give your wonder oven a good home. I came to your presentation at the copperfield chapel. I tasted the bread and the crackers. They were yummy. I was impressed with all the uses for the wonder oven. I forget where you got the proper sizedsaucepan or spaghetti pan. I need to get one I used what I had on hand to improvise. I already tried to improvise the concept using an igloo cooler and some pillows. I made bread. I cheated and used bread mix due to hurry. The smell of the bread cooking was wonderful. I had someone over to our house and she commented on how good it smelled. I told her what I was doing with igloo and she said it sounded cool. The bread came outmoist and delicious. It was a big hit with my family. The reason I want a wonder oven is that it will be much easier and probably roomier than the igloo. The igloo is on wheels so the wheel well takes up space that could be better utilized. The truth be told I would love two-one for bread and one for main dish. But–I would be grateful to just buy onedue to limited amount.I think it would be great to come back home at the end of a long day and have a nice hot meal waiting. Also it would be handy for hurricanes and power outages. During the last hurricane we hunkered down. This is when we discovered that our barbeque was broken and out of fuel. We had a long hungry couple days till we could get out to a restaurant. Cold canned goods are no fun. I would use it often–but it would also be agreat addition to our emergency preparedness efforts. If I had a wonder oven, I would sleep better at night knowing that we would be able to cook our food. We could get cooking started on small fire outside or on small propane cooker. Then we could finish in wonder oven and finish inside–thereby saving time, hassle and fuel. I have a lot of family in Utah and Minnesota–both who experience harsh winters. It could be lifesaving for them to have it. In the event of a power outage or a natural disaster, they would minimize their fuel usage and be able to save wood for heating homes to keep from freezing in winter. Also, it is just plain fun to use on a regular basis.I also would share info with fellow ward members. I am in Nottingham Country Ward. I do not have paypal. Would cash or another form of payment work? Ilive close to your area. Please let me know. Also, if you ever do make more available in future for purchase I would probably like to give as gifts to friends and family, Thank you, Cherie Spencer

    • Megan September 24, 2013 at 5:56 am #

      Oh, Cherie, I’m sorry but the ovens are all gone now. Lucky for you though, you live nearby me so I can tell you that I know of a group who is going in together for the beads and sewing and making their own beginning in October. Email me at myfoodstoragecookbook@hotmail.com and I can give you more details.

    I would love to have a wonder oven, as I think using one would save me time, energy (two kinds) and money. Everyone I know wants to save money, but some have extra time and plenty of energy on their hands. I used to get so much done in a day that it makes me tired to remember it. I have multiple health issues (ongoing- not acute) and time is not something that I waste when I do have some energy (personal/physical type). Of course right now, flipping on the oven is not a big deal, but I know it might become a big deal very soon. With my personal limitations, working is exhausting, and what hours there are left in the day are not full tilt effort. Any time and effort saving device or technique has gotten more and more of my attention. I still like providing meals to my family. I am trying to pass along as much knowledge and information that I can for their benefit and safety. I would like to master using a wonder oven, then teach it to others so that they would want one. It is possible that they could make one if they were determined enough, but that determination might best come through knowledge, exposure, usage, and success. So please, if you have any left, I would like to have the opportunity to order a wonder oven. By the way, I think your efforts in doing this are another kind of wonder!

    • Megan September 30, 2013 at 9:31 pm #

      Oh, I’m so sorry Marty, but they’ve all been sent out now. If you’d like to order one online for yourself, this link (here) will take you to where you can buy one. So sorry! :(

    How long does it take to make one? Does the size of the beads matter? At Wal-mart they have a larger “bean” filler. 3.5 cubic feet for $19.00. I was wondering would that work? Do you have a cookbook? I welcome any comments. I want to use it to go on regular camping trips with my son who is in Boy Scouts. I was wondering is it hard to make? Is it something the “boys” could make in a meeting, which usually lasts and hour. Probably two meetings. huh? : )

    • Megan October 4, 2013 at 7:22 am #

      I’ve helped with quite a few sewing events — sewing these from beginning to end (unlike my project here which I worked in stages) and usually it was a strong three hours to get one oven done from beginning (tracing the material) to the end (filling with beads). It could totally be done with boys — in fact my kids helped me a lot (plus it is simple sewing, straight lines all the way). Depending on their age I’d say three meetings would be the best. 1) to trace and cut / pair the first two patterns together and sew. 2) pin all four together and sew all together (this sewing portion takes the longest, as pinning is necessary), turn right side out. 3) Fill with beads and sew closed. As far as how the two sized beads compare in performance, here is an experiment that was done on that.

      As far as a cookbook, there definitely will be one at some point, right now I’m in the beginning stages of submitting it to publishers — I’ll announce it when it happens though! Thanks for your comment!

    I’ve been so slow at posting here again, but I wanted to say a big THANK YOU! This has been awesome!

    • Megan October 24, 2013 at 1:09 pm #

      You’re so welcome! I know how much you’ll all love them, so no worries at all :)

  66. Vicky May 21, 2014 at 3:06 pm #
