Technology Description

This solar cooker received its name from the incorporation of a large diameter, all-glass solar vacuum tube. It is deemed to be a true solar appliance dueto its ability to boil water, steam food, fry food, bake bread, and autoclave items. The essential components include a vacuum tube (triple cavity), a trough shaped Compound Parabolic Curve (PCP) high efficiency reflector, and a heat retention cook box.
