Why use a Solar Sun Oven?
The Solar Sun Oven has been devised to meet
up to 70% of the needs of a family of 6 to 8 people in a developing
country, entirely with the power of the sun. Even though it is called an
oven, food can be boiled, steamed, roasted or baked at cooking
temperatures of 360° F / 182° C, making it ideal for cooking the
majority of foods in the developing world. This ruggedly built solar
appliance weighs only 21 pounds / 9.5 kg and will last more than 20
Over 2 billion people cook with wood, charcoal or dung as their primary
cooking fuel and the social, economic and environmental impacts are
significant. The Solar Sun Oven has been
carefully engineered to provide an alternative to using wood and dung.
These fuels are becoming increasingly scarce and costly. The use of
these Solar Sun Ovens can be
very beneficial to families all over the world by reducing the cost of
fuel and/or lightening the everyday budens of life.
