It's here!

by BC
(St. Louis, MO)

My solar oven has arrived! They packed it very well in its box, and I had to have hubby help me remove it. It seems to be solidly constructed. My only concern is that, over time, the little pegs that hold the glass door closed will crack the glass. I hope it is tempered!

I am excited to use it, but first I must follow the directions for cleaning it and removing that “manufactured” smell. Hopefully, the sun will be shining tomorrow, and I can do this. Does anyone know if this needs to be done once or twice? I’m anxious to cook my first meal in it, but I also realize this is a necessary step.

After that on my list….what am I going to cook first?! Any ideas?

Thanks!
by: BC

Thank you for the tips. The vinegar steam "bath" and scrub worked well. There was a slight odor remaining, but I have left the door open, and it seems to be airing out. The weather has not been cooperating well enough for me to cook in it--the first time, I had to bring it in due to rain. I just had my second attempt yesterday, which went better. I will be posting that experience in a day or so...stay tuned!

Great Idea
by: Nathan

Cal,

That is an excellent idea.
I had forgotten about that, even though I do use
oven bags quite often for cooking items in the solar ovens.
Great way to evade odors with a new oven.

New Oven Smell
by: Cal Grigs

You can use your oven right off if you wish. Simply take the pot and food that you are going to cook your meal in and insert it into an oven bag. These bags will holdup to the high temperatures of the Sun Oven and your food will not have that "new oven" taste.
