Solar Ovens - Have a Sun-e-que

Instead of a Barbeque you can let the Sun do all the work and have a Sun-e-que. The Sun means free fuel, and that means no more trips to refill your propane tank too. This solar cooker is all about heating up a crock pot or HOT POT, and works on any sunny day.

The HotPot solar oven comes with the large heavy duty black enameled steel pot and glass cooker that is pictured above. The Hot Pot solar cooker is a large thick clear tempered glass bowl, fitting inside the glass is a strong black steel pot surrounded the glass cooker. There is 1/2” between the metal and the glass allowing a small pocket of air space to surround the pot for added heat retention.

How does it work? The sun penetrates the transparent glass, strikes the black pot, and converts to heat that is retained inside the glass bowl. On a sunny day, a quart of water will boil in less than an hour, a four pound chicken will cook in about two hours in a HotPot. The cooker rests inside a super shiny metal reflector, which is composed of several panels riveted together that easily fold out to capture the direct and indirect energy of the sun. The sturdy reflector sets up in 30 seconds. It is made to be easily collapsible and folds down into a flat compact unit that takes up little storage space when you are not using it.

This solar oven is going to set you back $99, but we think given the no fuel long term cost - it's a steal.
