The Solar Cook Off

Today I went to the Solar Oven Cook Off.  Not a large crowd but a lot of good information.  For today, I am going to post a spread of pictures of different ovens.  Later in another post we will discuss some of them in detail.

Picture 1

Picture 1 Is a simple oven, the man who owns it cooks a high percentage of his meals with it on a regular basis.


Picture 2 A homemade oven that reached temperatures of over 300 degrees.

Picture 3 A Sun Brand oven, it worked well.

Picture 3


Picture 4 An oven made by the Solar Oven Society, it was the least favorite one at the cook off.




Picture 5 A funnel cooker, this works very well and is simple to make.

Picture 7


Picture 6 An improvised oven made on site, believe it or not it worked




There was some other alternate cooking methods at the cook off that I will cover later.

    I have a question — can you clarify that photo 2 and photo 3 are different solar ovens? The photos look identical, down to the table in the upper right corner, the shadows, and the reflection in the panels. Thanks for any updates!
