cookit solar cooker -Solar Cookers: How To Make An Eagle Solar Cooker

December 1, 2012 – 9:25 pm

Www.Greenjoyment.com ** If you really want to know how to make a great solar cooker, you should check out the Eagle Solar cooker. This video shows you how to make a solar cooker Aquila, and in the next video, we’ll show you how to cook the food with the eagle. http And ‘laptop, and, like his father, the famous CooKit, the Eagle folds up to the size of a large book. What makes the Eagle is that the model is made of American standard 8 1/2 “X 11″ (the kind you put in a typical printer). There is measuring very little involved, and without the use of a compass to measure any angle. The model is made by connecting the corners and edges marks made with a ruler. CooKits thousands are used in many countries around the world solarcooking.wikia.com This type of cooking requires a heat-resistant plastic oven bag (“bag roast turkey”) and a pot (preferably black) with a lid. It can be made of a single piece of cardboard or may be constructed of 11 pieces small duct-tape together. The easiest way to make one is to do a series of pieces of paper first, then go back to the box. Four types of pieces are used to make an eagle. Four plain sheets complete the pattern. Once the pieces are cut, are assembled with adhesive tape. Then, ordinary foil is glued, using gluestick or white multi-purpose glue. For all exposed surfaces of cardboard more water resistant coat with a 50/50 mixture of white glue and water. www.greenjoyment.com

  2. Hey! You’re very welcome. Glad you’re making one for school. Are you taking pictures or documenting it? We would love to have some pictures of one that was built with help from this video at GreenJoyment. Come visit the site and send an email… would love to feature your school on the site.

  7. WOW can u do one for me?PLEASE I will pay you to make me this and send to Israel! REALLY its so cool!

  8. Yes… and/or lining it with mylar, so long as you pointed it toward the sun. If I were to make these again, I would choose something more permanent so i could use the cookers on an ongoing basis.

  9. wouldn’t getting a wooden box and lining it with these metal plates also work? A cover on top should also make the heat even greater.

  10. And government regulation both aids, and doesn’t overregulate, cheap to create and/or own solutions.

  11. I guess in summary I think sustainability will start to get to be less of a pain in the ass for people as the demand for solar inevitably rises and the technology improves.

  12. Well said. We all do need to change. I think once the economic system reflects the true cost of burning oil, we will. People drive small cars in Europe because they can’t afford to power a Ford V10 on gas that isn’t subsidized. Not to mention the pollution, which, last I checked, stays clear of the books. We desperately need better localized systems to produce our food and energy. Solar panels should reach a golden age soon though. There is hope.

  13. That’s an awesome point. We pulled back watering our lawn so much, but it’s really a good point you make. I grew up on well water and think that makes a lot more sense for watering lawns or trees… your point though is very valid. We’ve got a lot of work to do to become a more conscious people, and to change our habits to ones that are friendlier to the environment.

  14. So your duct tape isn’t environmentally friendly but the lawn that you water every day, which uses half your water, which is pumped hundreds of miles via generators IS??? Everyone’s a hypocrite (myself included).

  17. Will do. We’ve definitely gotten better at it since these were made. :)

    By strive4impact on Dec 2, 2012

  18. Much agreed.

    By strive4impact on Dec 2, 2012

  19. Keep on making videos.

  20. Nope… like an actual printer. Look in the phone book under “printing press” or something similar. Ask if they have any of their big aluminum metal printing sheets that got misprinted.

    By strive4impact on Dec 2, 2012

  21. LOL Glad you enjoyed the video. Thanks for commenting!

    By strive4impact on Dec 2, 2012

  22. Dude, your a mess. But entertaining.

    By MrLeonard55 on Dec 2, 2012

  25. wow

  26. I found the Eagle easier to build, but then I would, since I had no real introduction to the metric system until age 21 while living in Germany. (By the way, the metric system is a much more practical system, but I’ve still lived much more of my life with inches instead of centimeters.)
