GSO Insert Modification

by Brad

I've been using a home-made reflective insert with my GSO for over a year, and it has helped guarantee that my oven's my cooking temperatures will be sufficient during the Winter, and when challenged by cloudy days.

Recently I've been attempting to push the GSO above 400F for proper Italian bread baking, and this resulted in slight modifications to my insert.

The following pictures detail what the insert looks like now, the stabilization required on the backside to prevent tipping (binder clip, plastic bags filled with rocks), and the measurements.

The cost was $8 for aluminum foil tape, and a discarded cardboard box. The insert rests on the GSO oven's backside and side hinges, evenly distributing its weight.


Wow! Impressive wing span!
That is definitely a lot of "surface capture area" for a Sun Oven.
Great detail and description with your photos.

Thanks again for inspiring our site visitors.
