DIY Solar Oven
A Do-It-Yourself Solar Oven, is a simple, low cost project that anyone can complete in a couple of hours, once you have collected the materials. We'll start with a very simple design, that gives you a working solar oven.
Materials for a Solar Oven
Assemble the Solar Oven
Cooking with your Solar Oven
Aim the oven into the sun by looking at the shadows - don't look at the sun. Periodic repositioning into the sunlight will be required.
Place a drip pan at the bottom of the oven, to catch spills, boil-over's, etc. You need a black pot with a snug lid for cooking. Glass jars, painted black, also work well. Try different pots till you find one that works well. Remember that the pot or jar can get very hot!
This simple oven will work well for warming rolls and keeping cooked items hot. It also works well for items that don't need a set temperature (rice, beans, soup, corn of the cob).
