Read about my own experience and opinions on the Hot Pot

How it Works...

The sun's rays are concentrated by the aluminum reflector and projected through the glass bowl onto the steel pot, which converts solar energy into heat. As there is a half-inch of air space between the steel pot and the glass bowl, heat is retained inside the glass bowl, creating a miniature "greenhouse" effect which maintains cooking temperatures.

The Hot Pot can boil water and and any other liquids, it can be a little bit slower than some box cookers (ovens) but it will boil water, especially on a nice sunny day.

( I have cooked dry beans in the Hot Pot at a hard boil for a much as five hours on a good long summer day)
