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:

These things are pretty cool and they work pretty well, but like @Kim Chee said, they aren't the best to travel with unless you have a vehicle.

You ever just look at a word and it freaks you out because it's spelled right but you start thinking on some meta shit how does this noise mean this concept? 'Smooth' freaks me out right now.
