  2. This is incredible – and the fuel is FREE. Thank you for this post.

  3. This is exactly my problem with teaching in the Caribbean Islands where
    there was very little firewood for cooking, the people were accustomed to
    their charcoal pots for cooking and they thought a cardboard stove covered
    with foil was crazy. Even after a few months of teaching, they simply
    patronized me and then were too embarassed in front of their family and
    friends to go on using the solar stove……

  4. well it would be expensive, but if you want just microwaves from then sun,
    you would need a square meter filter and then a lens just below it, to
    focus on a container, but just using a large mirrored dish or a lens, can
    heat things up fast., much of the cost a the moment is making perfectly
    smooth dish mirrors or just the frame holding it up. solar ovens are
    cheaper & slow at times, but can be used in all seasons.

  5. Solar cooking is free and effortless,how could anybody argue with that?

  6. @tcbink As it is sold to poor community inhabitants, it sounds like there
    is a special price for them. The minimum wage in Mexico is 1265 pesos per
    month, about 95-100 USD. In those communities people often do not earn even
    the minimum. I like the project, training the people and show them it
    works. Regards from Mexico

  7. I don’t believe those women to be students of the Freudian school. You
    missed the point by a mile.

  8. thanks for the comment… certainly an interesting point.

  9. Yes, but you don’t have a high sun angle that far north, so it is going to
    be a slower cooking process and you will not be able to achieve high temps.
    All the more reason to have the best ovens like a Solar Sun Oven where you
    can tilt the oven toward the sun without tilting the food. It helps that
    much of Alaska is treeless, so those aren’t in the way. I remember “Eskimo
    ice cream” . It sure looked good but I think it is an acquired taste. It
    might be one of the reasons I turned vegetarian.

  11. its great in the summer months of alaska were we get 24 hours of daylight
    about 4 too 5 months out of the year. the eskimos have been using simmilar
    methods for many years before we westerners came too town for cooking there
    fish “skaw candy” as they call it

  12. capatalist ripoff! ( proof) haha.. im so glad u made that point.. i guess
    cuz we have more money here we should pay more for it… like zonepricing…

  13. Why can you buy it for $35 in Mexico but in the USA it’s $99?

    By tcbink on Jun 1, 2014

  14. Actually they are still $35 but when you sell your product through Gaiam
    you can expect a 300% mark up for any thing they put in their catalog. If
    they marketed and sold them through Wal-mart they would only be $25.

  15. @achsofromm …in the camps my friend encountered… women had a high rate
    of being raped while going miles from their homes to gather wood. One
    reason they went in groups. It is easy to smile when you are safe (and
    being photographed), but conditions can change unexpectedly. (stock and
    posed photos tell a story of their own if one considers it.)
