The great leap forward in solar cookers.
The Sun Cook.



> THE BEST SOLAR OVEN

SO EASY

It's autonomous and you don't need to attend to it because it never burns the food. No fuel, no ashes, no smoke, no stirring and no scorching are all part of the appeal.

SO TASTY

Slow cooking, taking up to twice as long as traditional cooking methods, results in tastier, juicier and more nutritive food.

SO RELIABLE

A simple design and first class materials from the world’s leading manufacturers all contribute for a long and trouble-free life.

ALL YEAR ROUND

Both advanced optics and effective insulation allow for cooking with negative temperatures and no need for refocus. All you need is a clear sky.


> HOW IT WORKS

OUTSIDE4

The Sun Cook oven uses for the first time ever in a cooker the so called "non imaging optics“. It works as a greenhouse, capturing the sun's rays through the glass lid. Solar radiation is also reflected by the external flat mirrors into the cooking compartment doubling the input of energy. The external side mirror avoids the need to regularly refocus the oven by redirecting the Sun's rays that would otherwise be reflected sideways.

INSIDE44

Inside the cooking compartment mirrored walls act as compound parabolic concentrators (CPC), greatly reducing the need for regular re-orientation. These concentrate all incoming solar radiation to the bottom absorbing plate, which in turn radiates heat allowing for a very homogeneous temperature to be attained. The cooking compartment's insulation and the double glass lid prevent thermal losses and may keep food warm for hours even after sunset. Ideal for late dinners then.


> WHAT CAN IT COOK

All sorts of dishes, except frying. Here are some examples:

> Pork chops (20-30 min); 
> Grilled fish (30-45 min); 
> Curry chicken (90-120 min); 
> Vegetables soup (120 min); 
> Beans stew (2 hours); 
> Walnut cake (60-75 min); 
> Manioc puree; 
> Bread, soup, pasta, yogurts, jams and many, many more.
