Hi everyone!! I am trying to sew a retain heat cooker to slow cook the food.
Basically i will boil the food and then put the pot into the retein heta cooker that i am going to build.

I' struggling with the material to choose, i would like to use 3 different materials.

1 the one attached to the pot: polyester aluminize (to reflect the heat radiation)

I am not sure if polyester can resist the heat from the pot! I do not know hot to calculate the heat of an aluminum pot on a 2 kw stove (of course considering that there are different food inside!!)

Then i will use polystirene beans to retein the heat and another plastica material to cover that is easy cleanable etc..

Do you have any suggestion? Thank you very much!!

I'd use fiberglass cloth with a batting of fiberlass insulation between. You CAN buy fiberglass cloth -- my ironing board has a cover made of it; I just don't know where you'd buy it.

I doubt the cooker loses much heat via radiance at low temps, but it's an interesting question.

Thank you for the awnser, but by do you think that a low temp there is no heat radiation?
