Yeah sure, it works great here in Minnesota with our three days of sun during winter. Seriously, I have used ours - in the summer - and it works fine. Now I just have to figure out the next sunny day here.

My chrystal ball says maybe January 14th, . . . if not then, . . . maybe Feb 30th,...........

Don't feel bad, . . . Ohio ain't much better. Beautiful sun shining today, . . . but I know this place, . . . it won't last long. I'd get me one of them ovens if there was any way I could be sure to use it more than 5 months a year.

May God bless,
Dwight

the sun was out today and it was raining :)
for long term distress purposes, should I have to use it for that, it keeps the work down on the amount of burnables we'd need and its good for the environment and great if you need to conceal whereabouts! I am so excited!

I was kind of disappointed after watching the video. I was expecting some kind of "death ray" Fresnel lens thingy. In all seriousness, both of you please tell us about one of your recipes and how it turned out. Photos if possible would be appreciated.

We use any recipe that calls for a slow cooker or crock pot. We have found that you only need to use about half the liquid a recipe calls for.

Since we have 363 days of sun here in AZ, I'd think one of those would be FANTASTIC out here! Do post up your results. I'm curious before I leap out and spend $400 on something.

We love it, like I said we cook in it about once or twice a week. Not only do we use slow cooker or crock pot recipe's but we have cooked ribs, used it as a dehydrator, have made beef jerky, homemade soups, you can cook about anything with the sun oven.
We have found that here in Florida with the screened in pool cages that it cooks cooler on the patio if we take it out in the yard it gets another 50- 75 degrees hotter. The screen must block some of the rays.

here's a youtube for budget preppers. its a solar oven for 5$
what a great thing to have set aside for prepping if you don't use solar cooking as a life style!

solar cooking reduces the trees and chopping youll need to do for cooking and such. additionally it helps you stay concealed, where as fire will get you found. in a long term situation eventually the fuel runs out. wouldn't it be great to save the fuel for other things?

it also cuts down on the water needed... again saving the purified water you have...

these car cover things would also be a great double for heat in an er situation. ill get one for my car

Hello All, I like others here built my own solar oven from info on line. Works great and hey if you can afford to drop $400 on an oven nothing wrong with that. But not me, I live a mostly subsistence lifestyle and cant swing a purchase like that.

Anyway, lust a new guy giving you my 2 cents...

I don't have a work shop, it costs dearly to not have a workshop :)
Hey I do understand, I build things for friends all the time for the same reason. Even started doing some things for fellow preppers and its easy not to give your address for shipping. We can all work together and not violate opsech… Besides its a great way to barter.....

We use their pots They are dark color which is best. Don't remember if it came with a cook book or we ordered one. Once we realized what all you could cook , which is anything, we have not used it.
