Sunfire Sun Stove
This solar cooker has a reflective inner surface and perpex lid to trap solar radiation. It cooks and bakes food such as porridge, rice, stews, soup and bread, and can reach 124°C. Can bring water to the boil in 60 minutes. Safe and easy to use, The sunstove is an inexpensive solar box cooker. Ingenious in its simplistic, yet efficient design. It is capable of baking, stewing and casseroling but must be viewed as a slow cooker. The SunFire Solar Oven uses the suns energy to slow-cook stews and casseroles and vegetables and rice for four to six people.
For the best results only black pots must be used as this aids in absorption of the heat from the sun.The best time for cooking is between 10am and 3pm, as this is when the sun is hottest.You will find that cooking takes about double the amount of time as a conventional oven normally does, but the bonus is that lower temperatures leave food more nutritious. Also, its free energy. This unit is made of mostly recycled material.
