  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm curious to know how many here own and regularly use a solar oven. IMHO, solar is great for not only supplying power but also for cooking. No need for fossil fuel to cook and sanitize water. The Solar Oven: A Great Appliance for Camping and Prepping

    Tested out my new Sun Oven today. Absolutely love it. I have built solar ovens for years out of cardboard and aluminum foil. I have taught countless sixth graders how to make their own sun ovens as well. But on my wish list this year was the Sun Oven which is a commercial product. It costs...

    I've learned from here that I can buy campfire pots and pans and skillets to cook on the grill or open fire. But what do you recommend we buy for baking, assuming we'll not have power? Thanks, Kathy EMP

    Does anyone have any advice about Solar Ovens? I've been researching the SOS solar sport oven,(Solar Oven Society.. Who would of thought they had a society) Does anyone use an solar oven, and if so, let me know how well you like them. Thanks R

    So has anyone built/have one? What are its limitations in cooking? Can it not cook some items? How long do some dishes take to finish? I just saw the National Geographic documentary/show called Doomsday Preppers online and one family had this and I never heard of it before. Thx for any...

    I was wondering how everyone was planning on baking bread in the absence of propane/natural gas and electricity. I was thinking of making a metal tray to attach beneath my gas grill to heat it from the outside sort of serving as an oven or just over a fire on a bread stone. Also is flat bread...

    I have a wood burning stove(Harman TL-300, which was a great purchase btw!!!) in the house that I use throughout the winter to keep our heating bills down. It has a cooking grill attachment and I'm sure I can boil water on top for cooking as well. This should be fine for winter cooking, but...

    Today I did a test / dry-run of my newly completed solar oven project. (Oops! Sorry -- the picture is kind of big. Not sure how to resize that short of hacking my way through photoshop with my limited skills. Oh well, at least it won't be lacking in detail.) I didn't get it completed...

    It's not the greatest piece of bug-out gear if you're on foot because it's bulky (though not heavy) but I love my Sport Solar Oven. During the summer I keep it out on my back porch and use it as a crockpot while I'm at work. We come home on warm days to a hot, homemade meal without having to...
  20. Food and water
    Just thought I'd share a few pix. I bought the largest oven, with reflectors. It cooks two 3 qt pots of food, and I try to do something in both if I'm going to use it. So today in one I cooked carrots (for Bella) and in the other I cooked a chicken. You don't add any water bc the food cooks...
