This is a picture of the Solar StoveTop cooking lunch at 10,000 feet in Yosemite National Park.
The full-size pattern with instruction book guides you through building a reflective hot plate cooker using locally purchased
supplies. Total cost will be $20-$25. Simply cut out the pattern, trace onto cardboard, and assemble. This cooker uses a circular
curve rather than a parabolic curve, and a series of wedge-shaped pieces for the reflective surface rather than trying to
mold a compound surface. This makes for easier construction, and most importantly, results in a 6-inch hot spot instead of
a pinpoint for better cooking and more even heat. It will reach 650 degrees F within minutes and only weighs 3 pounds. The
cooker is capable of frying, boiling, steaming, poaching, and perking coffee. Also includes recipes from StoveTop Pizza to
Poached Salmon on a bed of Greens. Very portable and efficient. You can also cook inside with sun coming through a window.
(This solar cooker can be made with the SOLAR STOVETOP COOKER item. See Morning
