Technology Description

A parabolic mirror reflects the sun’s rays on a matt black pot at the focal point inside the mirror. Burns and screens are so easy to avoid. The cooker can be used one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset. To follow the sun the solar cooker is moved by simple hand grips every 15 to 20 minutes. 700 watts of power → 3 liters of water boil in about 25 minutes in good sunshine. 12 liters pot → up to 20 people can be supplied (Source: EG Solar)
