Where does the condensation come from in the solar oven, I did not put any liquids in there

My name is Bob It is my first time doing this I do not know where the condensation is coming from please tell me


Greetings Bob, and welcome to the world of solar cooking!

You will find when solar cooking that you can get lot's of episodes of moisture inside of your solar cookers simply from the foods themselves without having added any water.
Most meats, veggies and fruits that you solar cook will produce moisture inside of your solar cooker.
With some items this is more prevalent than with others though.
It does not affect the solar cooking process very much by having condensation on the lid/covers.

If you do have a large amount of condensation for long periods of time it might affect the cooking process a little, but you can remedy this by opening the cover quickly and then closing it again so as not to lose too much heat, and this will help dissipate the condensation on the glass.

In general I do not worry too much about moisture inside of my solar cookers while they are cooking.

In fact, when I want to dissipate a strong lingering food odor, or when I want to clean the solar oven interior, I will set a pot of water and a little dish detergent inside of the solar cooker to steam for several hours and this helps in the cleaning of the interior.
