I found this old dish at the city recycle area and converted it to a cooker by first sanding it smooth and covering with 2" strips of reflective vinyl covering ordered from this site, Solar Cooker at Cantinawest. I then formed a copper plate and attached it to the receiver bracket in order to get even heat distribution for the pot/pan.
The panel cookers are Solar Cooker at Cantinawest.com's reflective vinyl attached to plastic sheet material. Doing experiments with different liquids in the pictures but a black painted glass jar will cook pinto beans in 4-5 hours.
Thank you very much for sharing your great looking solar cookers. And even a small parabolic at that.
That is a great use for the reflecive vinyl. I was wondering what you would do with all of it.
I really like how your panel cookers look, they have a distinctive appearance.
I presume this is just some of a few more solar cookers that you may be building over time?
I hope this can inspire others to give homemeade solar cooker building a try as well.
