The Himin Solar Oven uses the Evacuated Tube design for a high quality and very effective solar cooking apparatus.
The evacuated tube style solar cookers are somewhat new on the market and in the solar cooking world, though they have been used for solar cooking by tinkerers and inventors for a few short years they have not been largely available to the commercial market until now.
The older style box (ovens) cookers, panel cookers and parabolic cookers have been around for much longer, some as long as fifty years, but now there is a new and very effective method of solar cooking in the form of the compact and very fast evacuated tube solar cookers.
The Himin Solar oven is not only a nice looking solar cooker, but it is of the highest quality materials and workmanship
It's easy to load and unload these solar cookers using a sliding tray/basket to place your food inside.
With the Himin Solar Oven Evacuated Tube style cooker you can cook almost any kind of food you desire, including:

Pros and cons of the Evacuated Tube Solar Cookers:
Nano Model 7347 Man. Version $399.99 USD (includes shipping within Continental US)
102 mm x 730 mm Tube Dimensions
Micro Model 8555 Man. Version $499.99 USD (includes shipping within Continental US)
120 mm x 850 mm Tube Dimensions
Example: model 7347 (HGC-0.67/4kZ3); 7347 means the dimension of the reflector when folded is 73cm length and 47cm height.
830 x 310 x 560mm is the outline dimension.
0.67m2 is the collecting area (technically, we call it aperture area) of the reflectors. 0.73m x 0.47m x 2=0.686m2 which is approximately equal to 0.67m2
The power generated depends on the solar irradiation. You can make a rough estimation. For example, at summer noon in southeast US, the solar irradiation is about 1000w/m2.
Then the power of the 7347 solar cookers is about 1000w/m2 x 0.67m2*efficiency (which is about 60%) = 402w. This is only a rough estimation/calculation, not the measured value.
