cooking with solar


Kim Chee

I deleted myself
When I was a youngin in 6th grade...about 35 whole years ago right after solar was invented, we were tasked as individual students to build a solar cooker.

It will work without a whole lot of sun, especially if it is on the large size.

What is bad about it is that it isn't very backpackable.

For $40, this is backpackable, works quickly and gets very hot:
