solar cooker ovens -Testing the Sun Oven Solar Cooking Device

October 6, 2012 – 12:25 am

** I tried the Sun at solar oven cooker picnic spring of Denver Urban Homesteading Group in 2009. To visit www.livingasimplelife.com more or http. Video Rating: 4 / 5

Solar ovens ** are super effective! This quick demo is like a solar oven works and why the cook Sole is the best available commercial solar oven. Watch a cook cake and bread in the solar oven in less than 1.5 hours. Filmed on board a boat in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands, Australia. Video Rating: 5 / 5

  3. I used the first one for 5 years, doing everything from stews and soups to dog biscuits. Lost that one in the High Park fire, now using the 2nd one, and love it even more! No gobbling electricity or propane, just set it out before I leave, come home to dinner!

  4. It used to have an odor that permeated the food.  I simply cooked it out, which just took a few times. They now recommend that you set a pot of water with dish detergent in it. That seems to work. I now have two sunovens and absolutely love them. My oldest oven is now about three years old. My thermometer has been broken off and there are a few dings in the reflectors. I use both quite often. I would recommend buying the whole shebang, with the dehydraytor racks, pots, etc.

  5. Want to get one but many of the reviews talk about a plastic-y taste and often the black interior begins to rot. Smell can’t be washed out or baked off. Have you found that to be true?

  8. A Fresnel lens with a cast iron dutch oven works great also, it does get alot hotter than a solar reflector type oven. Nice video, thanks.

  10. I believe the angle of your oven was not correct. Bread takes about 45 minutes with my sun oven (the same model). The angle is critical and it is important to keep the orientation. The angle is set so that there is minimum shade inside and this creates a reflected sun line inside the oven which I set to be at about the center. The condensation is ok as the water will run down the glass and it will not fall on the food. I have had mine for two years now.

  12. My 13 yr old son and I made a Sun-brella, a foil lines umbrella. We were able to get a nice pot of brown rice out of it but we had to deal with quite a bit of wind today. I LOVE the sun oven!

  13. I built a few ovens. I like the feature of the swing rack. I prop my pot up with a rack using a piece of wood but if you raise up the ovens angle too much, and if your pot if full like mine with broth and chicken, oops a spill. nice oven there.

  14. You live in a beautiful place (I’ve just been googling where that is) – yes, no problems using a solar oven there, it’s about solar radiation rather than actual ambient air temperature – you’ll see plenty of utube videos about solar ovens working in the snow! So as long as you have some sunshine for at least 4 hours you’ll have a great time solar cooking.

  17. we use a sun cook solar oven too and we love it – our best suggestion is to stick an eggplant in the oven, come back an hour later and mash it up with some lemon and garlic and hey presto, baba ganoush!
