Just got my new solar oven a week ago and I am loving it! I’ve cooked in it once or twice a day since receiving it. It’s very easy to use and is powered completely by the sun. I save money I would have spent on electricity to run my kitchen oven and again by not having to run the AC to cool the house back down afterward. This means a lot in Texas in August! I’m also saving by not eating out as much or using expensive convenience foods as much since the solar oven is so easy and fun to use. From electricity savings reports from other solar oven users I should recoup my cost for the oven in less than six months. The oven is built to last 15 years or more.
The oven I chose is a Global Sun Oven. It is a little more costly than some other solar ovens but is built to last many years and is very well insulated and seals tightly to reach higher temperatures and keep food warm longer. The oven is very portable and light weight. It weighs 21 pounds and quickly folds down to the size of a small suitcase with a built-in carrying handle.
