  2. These things should be teached at school, to boy scouts and also, i repeat,
    also to “Doctors without frontiers”, etc. Drinking boiled water is very
    important in some countries. Very well made video.

  12. Yup! Trout! Will definitely try to get a vid up (if) when it happens!

  13. @nasser5252 Good idea. Thanks. For those of us in North America he means to
    use a flashlight. Another idea is to use a laser but be careful about it
    reflecting into your eye.

  14. Ok then getting a pot as small as possible that is black as a main pot then
    getting a glass pot larger than the cooking pot. Yeah minimizing the mass
    of the black main pot for minimizing cook times would be good too. I think
    they make larger mason jars than the one I saw in your video about the
    first solar cooker would one of those work or maybe two halves of a plastic
    bottle like a soda bottle duck taped together.

  22. There’s no brand on it and I got it secondhand on freecycle. It’s standard
    size, not for SUVs. Mine isn’t the best anyway; it’s very bumpy which means
    it doesn’t reflect as much to the cooking pot. You’ll also want to use a
    cooking bag around the cooking pot to hold in the hot air, though a glass
    or pyrex container would do a better job though they’re harder to find
    since they have to be larger than the cooking pot. I agree re minimizing
    the mass.

  23. As long as the beam is narrow enough, that sound like it’ll work.

    By RimstarOrg on Jan 19, 2015

  24. Thanks for the tips

  25. Oh, I agree. It’s the simplest to make solar cooker I know of and it works!
    I hope he has fun with it.

  26. @magna59 I don’t teach school but I agree it should be. I am teaching solar
    cooking in an adult general interest half-day course in April here in
    Ottawa.
