Solar cooker owner from Long Beach

by David Cundiff
(Long Beach, CA, USA)

When first trying out the solar burner, the paint on the platform holding the pot seemed to catch fire and smell of some toxic material. What is the pot holder painted with? Is there a way to prevent the burning black paint?

Not familiar with that cooker, but...:
I would guess this is a temporary situation, a burn-in period, if you will. Not sure why they wouldn't address that in user's guide. High-temp flat black "barbeque" paint doesn't do that....
