In January 2016, we received an email from “The Gadget Show”, inviting us to be part of an episode about high-tech grills. The Gadget Show has been on air in the UK since 2004 and is currently on their 25th series. This was a great opportunity to showcase our innovative solar grill to their audience of tech enthusiasts.
“You would never believe that!”
Once arriving at their set in Spain, we set our SolSource up to give the presenters a solar cooking demonstration. After our unofficial demonstration, it was time to roll the cameras. The main presenter Jason Bradbury cut a piece of salmon and placed it in the SolSource grill pan. From the instant the fish hit the grill, Jason couldn’t hide his enthusiasm. Speaking to the audience through the camera, he exclaimed: “You would never believe that, if you did not see it with your own eyes.” Watch Bradbury’s first impression SolSource in action below.

After cooking on SolSource, the presenters tested other high tech grills. The other grills had all kinds of bells and whistles: sensors, monitors, cables, blinking lights, and alarms. It seemed like a high tech grilling mess. The presenters thought so, too.
When the cooking finished, it was time to decide which of the featured grills was the best. The Bradbury and his judges explained they had enjoyed cooking on SolSource, but would they choose a solar grill over the other high-tech grills? After a dramatic pause, that was exactly what they did. Bradbudy and his team elected SolSource Solar Grill as the best grill they had tested on the show. According to the judges, SolSource was “shining and easy to use”, but also “powerful and cooking extremely fast”.
