  3. Bathroom medicine cabinet mirrors are good for this, they are thin, les than one-eigth thick, about 3/32 inch thick. If someone dont have a big parabolic dish, check out my vids, you can do this on a flat board also.

  4. This video is amazing. I mean it helps in recycling anything that can still be useful. But maybe it would take long but at least it is of great help for conservation.

  5. Paint the pot black with heat resist automotive paint and it will work
    a lot faster.

  8. This is DB and you are correct it is dangeroujs to the eyes and one with children should probably not have one. Jumping on the dish is harmless. All the light is concentrated to a focal point somewhere away from the surface. But if a pet did happen to locate itself into the focal area that would probably be the last time it would get near the thing.

  9. what was the last thing you said in the video about not needing to do something? when you are not cooking you could use the dish to make electricity, once you have free electricity you can use it to make hydrogen for cooking and heating in the evenings, great work, i would be doing this now if i had my own land

  10. most stuff can just be cooked in a pan or pot. . almost all meals I make or things i cook to eat, I rarely ever use a lid and i get by just fine. its just like heat from a stove, even hotter so faster. minutes are nbeeded not hours.. if you want oven food, thats different, but still doesnt need pressure or a lid. just sayin.

  11. One thing I’m starting to notice about fr4esnel leses and parabolic cookers, is the safety thing.. for one thing, someone can easily go blind looking at the beam, or whtevers being burnt or “illuminated”.. I know how dangerous this is from experience! This is basically a high powered laser type of energy, very condensed and concentrated..and HOW easy would it be for a cat or other animal to jump on the dish, (most are close to the ground), and then its going to get gory.

  13. I’m sorry, if you have steam, you can turn a turbine or a engine.  This is more that possible and you just proved it. Imagine a huge, perfect dish in Nevada. Steam = electricity, desert = sun, Nevada = lots of empty space.

  14. thanks for the great story there.

  15. by god you have something there. I took the handles off the pot I use (they smell very bad when burning) and made a rig out of stiff steel wire. This is a 6 foot dish and I find it close to ideal. Ten footers are a bit big to handle and smaller do not produce enough power. Funny, I never used a pressure cooker and did not know they would post cook like you state. THANKS!

  16. Of course there is .You cook during the day then wrap the food in aluminium foil and place it in an insulated container.With liquids use a thermos flask.It will still be boiling hot several hours later,

  17. metal or plastic ? and thanks for replying.I,ve got a big dish like yours and all the mirrors ready.I just need a spare day to stick em all on.I,ve already got a small 90cm dish in operation.I can fry with it but it takes about 17 mins to turn water into steam.I know the big dish will do that in 2 or 3 mins.Also I,m going to invest in a camcorder soon so should be able to upload a view.

  21. How do you regulate heat?

    By chmellen on Aug 9, 2013

  22. HI what did you use for the arc tube,did you bend it or was it already bent-

    By n2e3i4l5 on Aug 9, 2013

  23. Transfer the food to ceramic cookwear. Also universal. Keep the food insinuated well and it should keep warm for 3-5 hours. That should cover “after night” eating. You just have to think ahead.

  24. incase you aren’t aware people use methods like this to generate electricity and make money off the electricity companies in the process. i myself am looking at getting together with some engineers and welders to do something on a massive scale…
