Here is your opportunity to support the Gosun Kickstarter to help bring the easiest, quickest solar powered oven to the world.

Like our name implies, GoSun is committed to helping you USE MORE SUN by powering the good life in backyards, campsites and villages around the world. All of our products are designed to be self-contained and compact. All you have to remember to bring is the GoSun Fusion - All-in-One Solar + Electric Oven, your favorite foods to cook and some utensils.



For five years GoSun has pioneered and refined the cleanest cooking possible. Our success is attributed to space-aged, solar thermal technology called 'evacuated tubes' or 'vacuum tubes'. These tough glass tubes seal in a high-vacuum creating unbelievable insulation so the sun's radiation can be harnessed like never before.

Check out the Gosun Kickstarter



The GoSun Fusion integrates a 150 Watt heating element (equivalent power draw of an incandescent lightbulb) below the stainless steel Cook Tray, allowing for cooking anytime, combining reliability and portability that has never been possible with solar or electric ovens.

See more info on the Gosun Kickstarter



When the sun goes down, you're in luck. Plug it in, flip the switch and the magic continues.



We want you to share. The GoSun Fusion is optimized to bring your family a bang for the hard-earned buck. The 3.2 liter Cook Tray cooks plenty of food for five full meals. We think of it as our mid-sized sedan (a hybrid, of course); after years of development, we found the sweet spot between weight, durability and cost.

Lots more info on the Gosun Kickstarter

I think this is like a solar version of our easy bake coffin.  It is super insulated so it can keep cooking after the sun goes down - but a tiny amount of heat is all that it needs to maintain a high cooking temp.

My biggest concern about solar ovens is that some people report that they make the food smell and taste like plastic.  Hope this one doesn't!

We have the previous version of this.  It's all stainless steel and glass.

I've got a GoSun that doesn't have the cook at night capability and I LOVE it!  I mostly cook grains and beans and soups.  I built a lazy-susan turntable to put under the GoSun so I can easily move it to track the sun.  I need to be bold and try to bake a pastry or bread.
