anyone use solar ovens?

lots of great cooking posts, thought I would see if anyone solar cooks.
I have a GoSun Pro. I like it very much. It is large enough to cook a main course for 2 people. My longest cook time so far is just under 2 hours for small potatoes or very dense squash. It is not affected by outside temp. Just needs sunlight.

Hi Ted, Thanks for bringing this up. Never used a solar oven but miss being able to bake in my 16' Casita. Your post sparked me to do some research and I think I'll be trying a solar oven soon.

If I wanted to use a solar oven to bake with I'd build one. The price of a "GoSun Pro" is ridiculous.

I started building solar ovens in the early 90s. I've purchased a couple of Sun Ovens as well. We use ours regularly and take it in the Scamp whenever we travel.

When I was in Scouting I had some boys get interested in a solar oven. At that time you could buy one from Campmor pretty reasonable and one of them did. We had an adult in the troop who was a sheet metal worker. I started buying cookie sheets at garage sales for a quarter apiece and the boys shined them up. With guidance from our sheet metal guy he helped them cut up the cookie sheets to replicate the Campmor folding model. They did some cooking with the solar ovens when earning the cooking merit badge along with Dutch ovens, grates and grills over wood fires etc. Just an idea for y’all. ( Been in Dixie for a couple weeks.)
