parabolic solar cooker plans -Extra – The parabolic solar cooker

November 28, 2012 – 9:21 am

** This solar oven is being used by eco-lodge run by women Chira island in the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica is a flexible device that uses sunlight as an energy source only.

** I have been using solar energy for the production of electricity from three years (PV) Also I have cooked with SunOven and I’m using this stove Parabolic Cooker by CantinaWest. You can boil water faster than my 220 volt heater. Here, in one morning I made Cuban Coffee, Burger, toast, used the oven only to Rice Brown, omelet and potatoes with a pressure cooker and the Sun all without turning on my stove home or in the oven!

  2. We made one almost exactly like this one but so far it’s not working very well, the water certainly doesn’t boil which is necesary for beans. 
    Es bastante caliente aquí en Guanajuato Mx y nuestro aparato es casi igual pero no se calienta suficiente para cocinar frijoles – sigo intentando…

  4. TO answer the question
    1. Cause you cant even properly reach the pot without busting your back
    2. Cooking with that would cause sun burn
    3. You cant cook at night
    4. Its boody massive

    Its a fucken stupid idea.

  5. i like the idea but i dont buy the global warming bs that politicians are talking about. It’s about tax money, thats all

  6. Check in a search engine “solar wall oven” and you get the solution to your question.

    You can cook meals with that design.
    It is not powerful enough to boil water, as you do not boil water in a gas-oven.

    I hope this info helps you out.

  7. You need to adjust the mirror every 15 to 20 minutes, so no need for major exposure to the sun.

    In your town


    Not like the irresponsible people sharing this video.

    Solar concentrators can harm your eyes!

    The idea is great, but the concentrated light could lead to blindness.

  8. hey, I am living in India, a small town in south India, here temp reaches 46 to 50 degree in summer ( extreme hot). and it is impossible for me to stay in the sun watching this natural device. Is there any alternative method so that solar cooker gets connected to kitchen

  9. Note that the orientation of the parabolic mirror is ideal for the topics, near the Equator, but this set up would not allow the correct angle for much of the year in the Northern or Southern Hemispheres.  That said, an ingenious device!

  13. Hi, i’d love to build one of these, do you have any plans or can you link plans?

  14. I think I ran across this somewhere for about $1000. I just wonder why no one has marketed a solar powered tracker turntable for solar cookers like this.
    Pretty cool.

  15. Using the pressure cooker… off the chain. We use one all the time (in the house stove)

  18. I thought I would listen to you playing a piece with this title, but I am not disappointed, this umbrella is absolutely fantastic, I need one too, but I’m afraid it can’t be bought here, so I think I’ll have to try making one. I also like your greenhouse with your special containers. All the best,
