Hey, most of you seem to use the same solar oven. Is it a DIY one that can be used at Wheaton labs or is it one that can be bought? I want to build one and this one looks really good.

Solar rice at WL I couldn't find a lid for these bowls that didn't fall in or was a tent. So the rice dehydrated a bit on top.

I am providing photos of the following:

I've been wanting to try this method for a while, so I made a makeshift solar cooker to use until I get the stuff for a wood one. I had an interview the afternoon I put rice in it and totally ignored it until I got home several hours later and the rice was completely cooked through. Zero effort required! I am so pleased!

Here is my submission for this BB. Definitely want to get/make a solar oven of my own after doing this!

I cooked white rice and am attaching the following pictures:

 - a picture of your grain cooking in a solar oven
  - a picture showing your cooked grain that is obviously at least two cups

A note regarding the cookware: I used the pot from my camp cooking set. I bought it some years ago and can't recall what it's made of, and it doesn't say, but it isn't aluminum because I don't buy aluminum. I don't even use aluminum foil.
