I've been thinking about cooking methods all week. In an emergency, depending on the type of emergency, you may have to wing it when it comes to preparing food. You may be a great campfire builder, or Dutch Oven Connoisseur but those may not be feasible options depending on your circumstances. It's good to have several different cooking methods available.
The Sun Oven is a great accessory. The thing that I like the most about the Sun Oven is that you can use it at any time. It will even cook when it is 5º outside. As long as there is sunshine, you can bake in it and prepare meals.
The only drawback that I can see is that if you are faced with strong winds, because of the light-weight make-up of the Sun Oven, the winds could be a hinderance. It would also be more benificial in a climate where there is a lot of sun as opposed to an area when there is extended periods of clouds and rain. I believe that using it over time will help you learn how to get the most use from your oven. I think that anyone can use this, but the hotter the climate, the more uses you will find for it. I could prepare food in my house on a cookstove in the winter with no problem, but I can't even imagine cooking on a hot cookstove when it's 98º outside.
The Sun Oven is a wonderful invention. You can cook or bake any food in it that you can make in your oven. Make soups, casseroles and stews, not to mention breads, cookies, cakes and lets not forget pies or brownies.
It folds up compactly and requires little storage space. It is very lightweight and easy to set up. The best thing about it of course, is that it requires no fuel except sunlight. It does a wonderful job of cooking and it is pretty much impossible to burn your food.Be thinking about what cooking methods fit your needs the best and decide if a Sun Oven might be right for you. I highly reccommend it. If you are interested you can check it out at www.sunoven.com.
