About solar cookers

Solar cookers offer high energy value without negative environmental impact.

They consist of a parabolic mirror which reflects the sun rays in the cooker`s focal point where high temperatures can be reached and enable to heat up water and food.

Solar cookers are particularly useful in areas or villages with little access to energy sources apart from wood. By replacing firewood and charcoal for cooking and boiling water, solar cookers prevent deforestation and soil erosion while helping reducing CO2 emissions. They can also be used for barbecuing in replacement of gas bottles and electricity.
