• The Quarter Acre Pot is a simple to use non-electrical multifunctional appliance that can be used as a Thermo Cooker, Cooler, Bain-Marie, Rice Cooker and Yoghurt Maker.

    Take your Quarter Acre Pot Camping, In the Caravan or Motor Home, Picnics, Outdoor Events e.g. Opera in the Park, to the Beach, Farming, Home or at the Bach, In the 4WD, On the Boat, or to a Barbeque.

  • The best thing about using thermal cookware is that you can use your favourite crockpot or slow cooker recipes in the Quarter Acre Pot to prepare 1 or 2 course meals.

    Whilst on holiday the time spent preparing meals is minimal but the results are like what you would experience at home with all the modern facilities and without all the dishes!
  • The slow and gentle cooking method of the QAP ensures that cuts of meat stay moist and tender while vegetables retain their integrity, keeping their shape, texture and colour.  There is an uniquely delicious mingling of flavours when food is slow cooked and because your food cooks in its own natural juices you are retaining all of the goodness, allowing the flavours, vitamins and nutrients to remain in each dish you prepare.

    The Quarter Acre Pot conveniently frees you up to provide a nutritious and healthy meal for you and the whole family.

Reviews & testimonials

"We brought the QAP at the Ashburton Motor Home show as the sales pitch sounded great.
Decided to try it out with the pasta and was so pleased with the result. Decided to try Lambshanks and rice pudding.

What can I say but Thank You Thank You Thank You.

I prepared it all in the morning and dinner was so yummy and the meat was falling off the bones.  The vegies looked like I had just put them in but cooked to perfection.
The rice pudding was so creamy.

The big bonus was that I did not have to be in a hothouse while they cooked - brilliant is all I can say!“
