Great value: Tests have shown the HOT POT™ to be the most high-performing solar cooker in its price class.
The HOT POT™ is comprised of a 3-quart, black-enameled steel pot supported by its rim inside a covered, transparent, tempered glass bowl and polished aluminum reflector panels.
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)
When you purchase a HOT POT™, you are also supporting an international non-profit initiative which helps eliminate human health and environmental problems associated with indoor smoke and deforestation in developing countries. From Mexico to Mali, Africa, HOT POT™ solar cookers are helping people in poor communities in their efforts to live a better life.
