It doesn’t have to be complicated with solar cooking.

And, since you’re buying the food you eat, it doesn’t have to cost very much. You’ll probably save some money since sun power is free energy and gas and electric, and other fossil fuels, can run into money. That’s all good for your financial health!$. It should be good for your spiritual health too. Believing in the Sun, will give you peace of mind!

Let’s look at the great things you can cook with solar ovens.  Meals can be as simple as baked potatoes and boiled eggs. Using a solar oven is so easy, a kid can do it!

Most solar cookers don’t fry food (some do: see parabolic cookers), but if you consider most solar ovens as slow cookers, or, crockpots, then you can imagine all of the wonderful dishes that can be made.

Vegetarian stew is a favorite of our family.

Let’s not forget dessert! Maybe it’s not the healthiest part of the meal calorie-wise, however, it’ll satisfy many a guest and leave a smile on their face. A great way to give someone a good impression of solar cooking, wouldn’t you agree?

So, solar cooking really can benefit your health. It’s how you look at it that counts. If you’re interested in furthering your green lifestyle, take a look here.

Solar cooking is moving right along. There are so many different models in a variety of functional categories available to the budding or experienced solar chef.

Panel cookers, as opposed to other types, offer a lightweight and usually inexpensive way to either add another solar cooker to your existing collection, or, are great for the beginner.

The SunFlair Solar Oven is an excellent one to consider for first or future use. It folds flat and does not take up much space. Its construction material is also a big plus, as this adds to its durability, which can be a problem for panel-style solar cookers.

Watch this video. It demonstrates the ease of use of this solar cooking gem.

The SunFlair panel cooker goes anywhere, folds flat and isn’t much bigger than a file folder.

Some regular users of solar ovens prefer to use a variety, or combo, of solar oven designs in a meal preparation. Sometimes this is very warranted, since the solar chef may be expecting a larger group for a feast.  Other solar cooks just like to experiment with solar cookers and cooking. Often, they find that they like to make certain meals in specific ovens. Factors influencing their decision include, the amount of solar radiation on the cooking day, the length of that radiation, how much time the cook has to prepare the meal, or feast, and the design of each oven.

So, the thing is, everyone who enjoys solar cooking, may want to put a pot of rice into the panel cooker, meat into a parabolic oven, and chili into a box cooker. Each might be able to make the other, but possibly not as well, or as quickly due to the length and quality of the sunshine on the given day. Whatever the solar chef decides, it is always a blast to solar cook and share a fossil fuel free meal with friends, family or acquaintances. The novelty never wears off and the chef will be fielding questions about solar cooking for days, weeks, and maybe years to come.
