I recently got into solar cooking and purchased a Solavore Sport. I'm in love. I haven't figured out all of the tips and tricks yet to Solar Cooking so please feel free to let me know if you have any! But this thing is amazing. If you are trying to take a baby step off of the grid, this is a good place to start...or heck...even if you are completely off the grid this solar cooker is awesome. I'm a camper so the portability and durability of the Solavore Sport is what I like most. And I don't have to worry about my dog knocking it over.

Nice idea but the price is a little steep, I bet I could make a similar one 50 bucks! (and use the other 200 dollars to buy some food to cook)

solardan I agree. to be honest I think one could tape one up out of polyiso and a piece of twinwall, like any air collector, and maybe line it with cinefoil. put in your pot of food and wait. We all know what happens when a collector stagnates, it gets HOT.

Sounds like a good subject for a competition... I'm game!

Willie,
Easier for some, you could put a cast iron pot on your driveway and probably be "good to go"
But it does sound like an interesting project that anybody could cheaply do.  We could make a "cook off" section in member projects where we post our ovens and something we cooked.  Since nobody can verify the taste I guess we would have to go for most visually appealing.
