Double jar solar cooker

by Craig Bergland
(Reno, Nevada)

This was originally made from a wine box with a Mylar-type bladder. It cost less than 50 cents to build, and will cook 2o ounces of rice in under 2 hours with no tracking required.
The newer version uses 3 of those 1 foot square mirrors held together with silicon, and one gallon jar (used in bars for olives and cherries) and one inner jar painted black (from a spaghetti sauce jar)
It works great.


Greetings Craig,

Very Innovative!

Thank you very much for sharing such a great solar cooker and a great Idea.

Just another example of how anyone can take advantage of the sun to cook by using a little ingenuity and creativity.

Great photo also.
