What I like and dislike about my SOS Sport Oven
I have had my Sport Oven for about a couple of years now and I still use it quite often, even though I have several other kinds of solar cookers available for use.
I will start off by listing the things that I do like about my Sport.
The Sport now comes with higher grade polished aluminum reflector panels that will last a lot longer than the original corrugated plastic adhesive reflector panels that were with the oven from the beginning, this is a major upgrade.
(The reflector panels do have spring attachments which make the panels very secure in windy conditions, so that is a plus.)
...Do these things make the Sport the best solar oven?
tips and ideas on how to get the most out of your solar cooker
Some of the things that I don't care for are:
* * (The Sport was not designed for extremely high temperatures like the GSO, but if used properly it is still as effective at cooking and baking as is any other solar box cooker, if not more so.)
I have somewhat solved the moisture in the air pocket problem by; un-taping the clear sheet on the bottom or inside of the lid, and cleaning it and airing it out. I then just re-tape it with clear packaging tape and it is back in good condition again. I do this every so often or as needed, and the integrity of the solar cooker is never compromised or lessened.
I guess though that I don't dislike them as much as some others.
With all that being said, I do like my Sport Solar Oven and would never get rid of it. I use it constantly in conjunction with my other cookers because it has its special features that none of the other cookers have, allowing me more versatility when cooking varieties of foods.
* * Hi Nathan:
I love the Sport. I have used it the last two weekends to cook our “big” meal of the day (I didn’t get to use it before because it rained every weekend since I got it).
I cooked a roast and banana bread in the sport yesterday as well. Funny coincidences My roast was falling apart and was the best roast I have ever cooked. The banana bread came out well and I even had time to cook another loaf of bread.
I thought I would also get the Sun Oven so that I could bake more while I use the Sport to cook our main dish and veggies.
Solar cooking is a wonderful idea!!

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our solar cookers.
Yes, all of our solar ovens can bake bread, this is a very easy thing to do with a solar cooker and in fact is something most people try as one of the first things that they will cook with their solar ovens.
Our All American Sun Oven does very well with baking
as will the SunCook Solar Oven and the Sport Solar Oven.
For stovetop style cooking though any of our parabolic cookers will do well.
