Solar ovens have historically been clunky and hard to manage. It's nice to have a fuel-free oven that will operate on just a hint of sunlight, but when it comes right down to it, you need an oven that's easy to operate, versatile, and simple to clean and store. This Solar Oven fits all of those categories and more.
Whether you're hoping to bake, boil, or fry your food, this oven is designed to provide the easiest cooking experience you could hope for in a storm setting. It's fast: in many cases, you will be able to prepare your meal in as little as twenty minutes. It's just as functional on cloudy days as it is on bright summer days without a cloud in the sky. It's even easy to fold up and tuck away again so that you can get it out of the way until it's time to prepare your next meal. This versatile tool will make cooking easy in a variety of situations.
Winter Storm Preparedness
With winter fast approaching, there's no way to tell what's coming. You could find yourself trapped in your home for days without electricity. With the Solar Oven, however, you'll at least know that you'll be able to prepare warm food for every meal. During a winter storm, familiar, comforting food can be the difference between frustration at your circumstances and enjoying the time in close quarters with your family. This oven allows you the freedom to enjoy your circumstances, gathering with your family over a warm meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner without the need to worry about an open flame or messy cleanup.
In a disaster situation, you have no way of knowing how long you'll be without electricity. While you can certainly live for a long time on staples that don't require cooking, the convenience and comfort of your regular meal staples can't be underestimated. If you're putting together a disaster preparedness kit, the Solar Oven is the perfect item to add to your haul. Because it is able to capture and utilize as much as 90% of the solar energy it's exposed to, the Solar Oven is the perfect tool for preparing all your meals for just as long as necessary. Whether you live in a disaster-prone area where it's not uncommon to be without power for days at a time following an emergency or simply want to be prepared no matter what comes your way, the Solar Oven is the perfect tool in your arsenal.
Camping and Hiking
The Solar Oven weighs only three and a half pounds, making it highly portable and easy to take with you wherever you go. Out for a hike and planning to fish for your supper? Pack up the oven, and you're on your way. Planning on a weekend camping trip, but don't want to be stuck camping over the fire the entire time? This oven is the perfect choice for all of your cooking needs.
While the Solar Oven is a wonderful tool for disaster prep or temporary cooking solutions, it probably isn't going to replace your traditional oven. It has some significant limitations concerning the size of food that can go in it, and you won't be able to watch your food while it's cooking, making it difficult for many cooks to tell when their food is done. With a little practice, however, this oven is a wonderful tool that will make cooking much easier if you're ever without electricity.
