Solar Funnel Cooker - Make Your Own Solar Oven
It's been awhile since we featured some solar cooking, and with the cold Winter upon us - a nice thought to look forward to this Spring. There's a really amazing site where we found this parabolic cooker with loads of plans to build your own - SolarCooking.org. The parabolic cooker above involves a reflective dish that concentrates sunlight to a point where the food is cooked. This approach is very dangerous since the sun's energy is focused to a point which is very hot, but which cannot be seen. So if you're making one of these ovens - make sure and know you can't see where the heat will be until you TEST TEST TEST. Click on through for more details and also visit SolarCooking.org for the latest in Solar Ovens.
