According to publicity material included with the vessels, he invented it to cook "porridge to perfection" as it would stick to the bottom and burn in an ordinary saucepan, but if it was cooked in a bain-marie it didn't quite get hot enough. His solution was to put a lightly pressurised jacket around the cooking vessel, filled with water boiling at higher temperature than 100C. The vessels were heavily promoted as good for healthy cooking, suitable for schools and hospitals, needing little supervision so ideal for families without servants or single people living alone with just a Primus stove for cooking, and so on.
