FREE COOKING TOOL

Cheap and easy to do solar cooker


I have always been interested in how to stretch my dollar, and solar cooking has always held a special fascination for me. Which is why I love this article, about how a BYU professor created a low cost effective solar cooker for people. http://solarcooking.org/plans/funnel.htm.

I know a lot of you guys who are readers here do tons of volunteer work in small communities who need free cooking tools like the solar cooker; that is cheap, easy to make and does not harm the environment.

Stylish solar cooker


Please have a read, and please pass this email to anyone whom you think may be interested, like a friend who does community work or someone who loves to experiment. The set up is not big, so it's also great for apartment dwellers who has a small balcony that faces the sun.


Cutting the cardboard

Maybe one day, we will see shiny solar cookers dotting the landscape, something no longer a novelty, but a regular thing we use everyday.

Solar Ovens & Solar Cookers said...

That's a very cool looking funnel solar cooker. Good job.

Could you provide more information please. For example what temperatures were reached, what was the ambient temperature, and how long did water take to boil?

Many thanks

Ok, just like everything, cooking times vary, depending on the temperature of the surrounding areas, how the solar oven is placed, how big your pot is, how much water you have inside, is your pot built like a pressure cooker or just a regular pot and so on. The problem occurs not only with the solar oven, but even with a regular stove, boiling water.

So, I can't really can't give you an accurate info.

I'm sorry I can't give you a more definite answer, but do give the solar cooker a try.
