Sun Chef Cooker is a parabolic style cooker produced by Ray Williams in Southern Arizona. The company was purchased in the last few years as a total re-build was proposed by Ray. Keep an eye on his website as he makes additions to his offerings and hopes to improve the Sun Chef Cooker with a "next generation" coming soon. Ray also plans to rebuild a number of solar cookers. We are excited for his progress and look forward to seeing good things coming from him in the coming years!
