Quick update,

We baked large potatoes today.

If you can cook well, large potatoes, it means your solar oven has enough energy to cook just about anything.

This little solar oven, made from a common cardboard box, insulated by straw and a few old clothes and using common car sunshade reflectors can do amazing things, and anybody can put one together at a small cost.

Hello to All !!!

I realize that there are some people that might have a hard time getting straw and/or many old clothes, so I tried using pine needles for insulation...for some folks they might be more readily available.

They worked just fine.

We baked bread and a good size meal of goat meat and a few potatoes.

It seems remarkably easy to do solar cooking...I don't know what took so long to get here.

If anyone tries this I would like your experience with this and suggestions.
