01/19/16 Update: While this website link no longer works, Joyce has agreed to make completely finished Wonder Ovens for me as I begin offering them myself. Details will be posted within the next week. All of the quality you see here in the Wonder Ovens she makes will be offered just the same except she’ll be making them to sell through me.
Exciting news! For those who’ve been wanting to buy a wonder oven pre-made, Joyce from Prepared in Every Way.com (who’s blogged, authored and been involved with preparedness podcasting for many years) has now begun making and selling Wonder Ovens full time. I’m so excited that she’s decided to take this project on for all the rest of us! You can find her at My Wonder Oven.com (love that name, btw!).
To kick off this new adventure, she’s giving away this very cute October “pumpkin” of a Wonder Oven! Details are given below.
**This giveaway is now CLOSED, however please continue to utilize this post for information on where to go to BUY a Wonder Oven**
I don’t think I have to tell my readers how to use a Wonder Oven, or remind you how much I love them. Been there, done that many times, in fact ever since the blog got started. However, for anyone who’s curious and “wonder”-ing what they are, I visited a podcast with Jendi at Mom Prepares this month where we talked at length all about them. You can listen to me rave all about them (once again) by visiting the podcast HERE.
I would like to share with you more about Joyce’s specific product though. It’s important that you know the quality she’s dedicated to offering. So, without further ado, here’s a list of her product expectations (given to me to share directly from My Wonder Oven.com)
My Wonder Oven Top Ten Features:
1. 100% Cotton
Cotton/ natural fabric is preferred to synthetic fabrics due to the high temperatures resting on the fabric. With 100% cotton the fabric won’t melt!
2. Double Stitched
To be sure the Wonder Oven beads stay right where we put them!
3. Filled with 3 mm polystyrene beads
Smaller beads conduct the heat better because there is less air space around them. Bigger is NOT always better.
4. Virgin beads
My Wonder Oven beads have not not been recycled from someone else’s bean bag.
5. Floppy rather than overstuffed
If My Wonder Oven gets soiled, simply wash that area with soap and water and allow to air dry. It’s a good idea to wrap your pot with a towel to avoid spills. A solar blanket also works great to catch spills and reduce condensation.
7. Cook on the road!
Think of it as a non-electric slow cooker.
8. Refrigerate on the road
Great for keeping groceries cool, or even frozen, on the ride home.
9. Made is the USA
Even better, made in TEXAS.
10. Affordable pricing
Because I can purchase the fabric and those 3 mm VIRGIN beads here locally, I can keep the costs down.
