The SolSource Sport Parabolic Solar Cooker
SolSource was the market leader for high quality parabolic solar cookers until they halted retail sales in 2019
World class high quality coupled with easy mobility no maintenance have set the SolSource Parabolic Solar Cookers at the top of their class!
This cooker is easy to carry, quick to assemble, and heats up in seconds for high-performance on-the-go solar cooking.
The SolSource Sport is the result of five+ years and generations of prototypes, design engineering and incorporation of the best features of the leading solar parabolic cookers from around the world.
No other company has produced a comparable parabolic solar cooker that is so versatile and user friendly.
SolSource Being Used in the Himalayas
Inspired by the problem of indoor pollution from household stoves, a problem faced by many rural families in China, SolSource was developed in collaboration with Himalayan families in China. Five years and thirteen prototype generations later, SolSource started providing hundreds of rural families with cleaner air in their homes, reducing their fuel gathering time and energy costs.
Note: CantinaWest has not yet tested this 2nd generation SolSource Parabolic Solar Cooker. Until such point as we have a chance to test it, the information below is based on claims by the manufacturer and our experience with similar the SolSource Classic and the similar characteristics it shares with the SolSource Sport.
On sunny days, reaches 400°F / 200°C, generates 600 Watts, and heats up 5x faster than charcoal. So you can boil water, pan fry eggs and sausages, make oatmeal and other light meals in 10-15 minutes. However, it does not generate heat quite as high as the SolSource Classic.
Designed and tested out in the Himalayan mountains, it withstands even the toughest environmental conditions. Frame is made from carbon steel, and panels from outdoor endurance plastic.
Pot stand/receptacle can support most kettles, pots and grill plates. Can be used to grill, steam, bake, boil or fry. It weighs only 10lb and fits in a small bag (24 inches x 17.25 inches).
Warranty: 1 year
Useful life: Panels maintain almost 90% reflectivity over 10 years (tested using accelerated use and weathering simulations)
Easy to clean and maintain using only some hot soapy water to take off splattered grease, spilled food and dust and dirt. It's easier to clean than your Barbecue Grill.
* The SolSource Sport Protective Cover is designed specifically to protect the SolSource
from precipitation, dust, and debris. In addition, the Cover allows you
to leave your SolSource outside, rain or shine, without needing to turn
it away from the sun or partly dismantle it for storage. Waterproof and
flame retardant, the Cover features a flap to wrap around the user area
to ensure it does not blow away in strong winds. Included with the cooker.
* The SolSource Sport Cookware Set is the ideal camping cookset, especially if you want to cook with solar energy. It uses a light-weight aluminum core that distributes heat evenly for cooking. It is coated with a safe, non-stick finish that will not chip or peel off. The SolSource Sport Cookware Set is ideal for high-performance camp stove cooking or use with portable solar cookers. Its dark, matte, hard-anodized aluminum base provides maximum solar energy absorption. The set includes the following four camp pots/pans:

We have found the Solsource to be very easy to assemble and disassemble due to the great design and machining involved in the manufacture of the materials and parts. You can actually assemble this cooker with no tools, that is how well the machined parts, pieces go together.
We even find the SolSource Sport easier to assemble and disassemble than it is to assemble the French Made Cookup200, quite a bit faster.
The SolSource Sport in its disassembled state is very compact, probably the most compact of the commercial parabolic cookers currently available on the market. Compact enough to fit inside of a small carrying bag (24 inches x 17.25 inches).
And, the quality of the SolSource materials as well as the "fit and finish" is of a higher grade than any other parabolic currently on the market at this time.
