1. Jwn Green Portable Solar Oven Bag
It’s about as light and portable as a solar oven. This is a literal bag that you can carry around and fold up whenever you want to cook.
I think my only issue with this is that it can take a while to reach 200 degrees F, which is what a solar cooker needs to reach to really cook or bake anything properly. You’ll need warm, direct sun for a long time to ensure it reaches and stays that temperature.
All in all, it can only reach a total of 248 degrees F.
It’s potentially a good option just for the summer months.
The inconvenients/Difficult to reach temperature, does not reach a temperature above 248 F.
Conclusion/It can be a good option for the summer months if you are able to give it some extra attention.
2. SOL COOK all-weather solar cooker
This is an impressive solar cooker with a really affordable price. It can hold just about anything you might want to bake or cook and reaches and maintains temperature very well, even on partly cloudy days. It even has a little device that helps you know exactly where to point the solar cooker. Very cool additional feature.
Advantages/Affordable, well made, hits the temperature
Conclusion/One of my favorites, highly recommend
It’s a really interesting design for a solar cooker. I’m not sure I’m 100% sure about it, but it really works. It can boil water, make tea and of course cook food. I think the only thing that doesn’t suit me is the shape. Although they come in different sizes depending on your needs, it seems restrictive as to what you can actually cook. I couldn’t bake a donut, which I once did in a solar oven. But maybe some bun?
There’s no doubt that it works, although the design is odd, that’s also what makes it really effective. You will just have to be careful about the type of food you prepare there.
Advantages/Affordable price, works great
The inconvenients/Binding design
Conclusion/It works, just think if it’s for you or not.
4. All US solar ovens
It is one of the most popular solar cookers on the market and has been for years. It’s no wonder it’s so popular because of how well crafted, cooked, and made in the USA.
It can heat water, dehydrate, and cook or cook just about anything you have in mind. The size is perfect for just about anything you would like to do.
It’s the highest end, it’s the most expensive on the list, but you won’t regret making the investment.
Advantages/Works great, well built, made in USA
The inconvenients/Very expensive
Conclusion/Even though it’s high end, it’s worth it.
Cook with the sun
Cooking with the sun is an asset for preparing, camping or simply not having to heat your house in the summer. A solar cooker can work just about anywhere and some can even work year round depending on the location.
