out side focus solar cooker
Dear Sir and Madam
i have working on solar cookers since 1995, i have tried to use the dish of the satellite with 1.2 m diameter, it was very good but because the focus is out side the dish in about 60 cm, so i found it dangerous because it may damage the eyes when you work on it or sometimes when the sun go right the focus go left so it may touch a tree or something able to burn, so i turned to the deep focus type.
in the photos you can see the 2 types which i have manufactured.
Wow! these are really nice, great work!
Yes, I know what you mean about the difference between the two types of parabolic cookers, the deep dish and the the shallow dish focus.
I use both styles of cookers myself. I like to use the deep dish and shallow dish parabolic.
With the shallow dish I can cook with a more intense focal point, so I use this one more often for deep frying and pressure cooking, but both kinds work well for me.
Thank you for the great photos and images.
