A box stuffed with hay in which heated food was left to continue cooking.
- ‘After five minutes you place the rice inside the haybox and half an hour later it will be done.’
- ‘The simple haybox and the more elaborate hotbox are fireless cookers.’
- ‘Left-over turkey and ham never taste so good as in this stew, particularly when it is eaten out of a haybox while following the hunt on a cold winter's day.’
- ‘While cooking time takes about twice as long as stovetop cooking, haybox cooking can save between 20% and 80% of the energy normally needed.’
- ‘Food is heated conventionally and once brought to the boil, the pot is placed in the haybox to finish cooking in its own heat.’
