    That sounds so good! Im using my solar water heater to heat up an MRE military ration. I lifted the glass lid, and threw the MRE on top of the black solar heat collector. I expect to have a hot meal in about 20 minutes. :cool:

    Solar Oven is one of the best way to cooking. It is inexpensive way to cook by natural sun energy. It is as useful for fat and quickly cooking as save electric energy. Many of people prefer to use it because I can say that It is one time investment and durable for life time.

    I ordered and received my Global Solar Sun oven This past Friday.. I got it set up Sunday. and this morning made some bread and put in it.. The bread fell. plus I never could get it up to 350 degrees.. Nor the 400 that it called for when I cleaned it.. What am I doing wrong

    There has been some wind the last few days... I'm in central texas.. I have it on the concrete drive way

    Have been cooking in solar oven now for almost a week.. So far have made cookies, pinto beans, baked chicken wings, chicken and rice, corn bread, hobo stew and pork chops with potaotes , sweet potatoes.. Oh and a pot roast with carrots and potatoes.. If it gets too cloudy I have had to finish a couple items off in house..

    Have still been cooking in solar oven just about every day.. Yesterday August 31, made chicken enchiladias, and then a chocolate cake in solar oven.. Iced the cake with german chocolate icing.. Cake was really moist.. Enchiladias were really good too..

    Nice information, but can everyone take this? Will government allow to use solar energy for free and no rent of Gas?
