Nothing makes more sense then solar cooking on every level. Building a solar oven may the best value in energy savings that exist. It's inexpensive, easy and will save you a ton of money. Let's share some ideas on how to build these things ourselves.

Hi Ray, and once again thank you for the new group...

"Nothing makes more sense then solar cooking on every level." You hit the nail on the head with that one my friend, and it ties perfectly with those of us already interested in Solar Power.  We are already keenly aware of "Sun Angle", "good Solar days", and much more.

I've played with this arena quite a bit, (particularly over the last two years), and from the DIY perspective its a lot like HF kits - once you put your first one together and enjoy the benefit, you find the need for MORE. ;-)

Hello, I'm hikerbob and new here.  I have a solar oven.  Use it regularly.  I have the Sun Oven a couple years now. The wooden suitcase one, usually sells for $300 or so and I got it for $200 and it's a superb unit.  Have NOT baked breads in it yet but that's on my idea list.  Mostly my frequent dose of beans and grains.  I am interested to  know if folks have used it to dehydrate greens, kale, chard, etc.
