Use the Largest Solar Electric Oven Daytime/Anytime
The newest, and largest, solar electric (hybrid) oven is the SunFocus (TM). Manufactured by SunBD Corp, it has a large cooking chamber; 13.5 x 13.5 x 6.25 inches. Most notable, is its high quality, made in America craftsmanship.
With such a large internal chamber at your disposal, you will find it easily accommodates most casserole dishes, a pizza, whole chicken, or small turkey. By using those, yes..dark-colored thin-walled metal pots, you can prepare several dishes simultaneously with this “big boy” solar electric oven.
The most touted feature of a solar electric oven is its electric backup. Should cloudy skies befall you in the middle of your solar cooking day, just switch the SunFocus to electric mode, the thermostat will keep up the temperature until sunny skies reappear (as they often do), or, until your meal is ready. A solar electric oven is very handy in the portions of our country not so blessed by sunshine, like New York and Pennsylvania. The highly efficient electric element within it operates on just a few pennies (uses 75% less electric than a traditional electric oven). It comes with side reflectors to increase cooking temperatures while using it as a normal solar oven. Temperatures of 400 degrees F are possible without the electric backup.
Like other solar cookers, the SunFocus uses a clever suitcase design with a carrying handle which makes it portable and easy to store. Remember, any solar oven may be a lifesaver during an emergency or catastrophe.
