Thermal cooking or heat retention innovation came from the idea of “cooking without fire”. It arose from Haybox concept, which utilizes the heat of the food being cooked to complete the cooking process. Food items to be cooked are heated to boiling point, and then insulated. Over a period of time, the food items cook by the heat captures in the insulated container.

The first thermal cooker was found by The Monmouth Archaeological Society’s and the innovative thermal cooker was developed in Asia in the mid 1990s. This Asian thermal cooker innovation was made by stainless steel with two pots, inner and outer pots.

Have you ever experienced those days when you’re at your home, feeling bored and just for some reason happen to have 200 grams of dark chocolate, 100 grams of butter, three eggs, 100 of sugar, 75 grams of flour and a half of a bag of baking powder and a silicon cake mold? Well guess what, during those days you can start being creative a do something with all these things. You might know what that is – yes, a cake!

A French cuisine site cuisineaz.com reveals how to prepare a simple chocolate cake in seven minutes, using a silicon cake mold and a microwave oven.  From that seven minutes you use two to melt the chocolate together with butter and five to bake it in a microwave oven. For a detailed description, please refer to these instructions in French.

Besides baking, cake molds can also be used for other purposes. For instance, bentoriffic.com site lists three uses for silicon molds – baking, smooshing and freezing.

The site suggests to freeze hummus or yogurt. Freezing seems to have two benefits. First, using shaped molds gives the food an aesthetic appearance. Whether the appearance actually affects the taste is another question. Second, it keeps the food cold in your lunch container until lunch time.

You can also use cake molds to smoosh food. The site teaches a way to make, say, different shapes of hard-boiled eggs by using medium-sized silicon molds. You can read the whole article here.
