SOLAR COOKING WITH SOLSOURCE
Outdoor cooking is long overdue for new technology. Charcoal, wood, and gas have long been the only fuel choices for people who prefer to spend their cooking time outdoors rather than cooped up in a kitchen, but not anymore! SolSource Solar Cooker brings you and your family back outside.
No more fiddling with propane gas canisters, no more filthy hands covered in charcoal. Point SolSource Solar Cooker at the sun and your saucepan heats up immediately. With no ash, embers, or open flame, the fire danger is so low they can go places where charcoal, gas, and wood fires are not permitted. So go ahead and grill up a few sausages at the park near your house–or slow-cook a nice roast on your apartment balcony. You’ll be doing both the earth and your tastebuds a flavor.
What is solar cooking?
It simply means using energy of sunlight to heat and cook food. Unlike propane gas or charcoal, using sunlight to cook is safe and doesn’t produce any pollutants. That means it is health for you and our planet. You can find out more from our friends at Solar Cookers International.
How does a parabolic solar cooker work?
For someone who has never seen a parabolic solar cooker before, it can be baffling. The parabolic mirror concentrates direct sunlight onto the cookware for instant heat reaching 550°F / 280°C. That means you can boil 4 cups / 1 litre of water in 10 minutes.
Designed for everyday use
SolSource Solar Cooker is designed for everyday use: a strong steel frame keeps the cooker sturdily on the ground, self-healing polymer to maximize reflection and easy cleaning. You can use your everyday cookware with SolSource, or our specially designed SolSource Grill Pan.
