Sunfire 18 Solar Cooker

Parabolic solar cookers concentrate sunlight to a single point. When this point is focused on the bottom of a pot, it can heat the pot quickly to very high temperatures which can often be comparable with the temperatures achieved in gas and charcoal grills. The highly reflective parabolic shape has the property of bringing parallel rays of light (such as sunlight) to a central focal point. If the axis of symmetry (Centre of parabola) is aimed at the sun, any object that is located at the focus receives highly concentrated sunlight, and therefore becomes very hot. This is the basis for the use of this kind of reflector for solar cooking.

Because it uses only concentrated sunlight, it requires no additional fuel source and is a completely renewable cooking solution that produces no greenhouse emissions at all. SunFire Solar Cookers have a lifespan of 5 to 10 years and can save an enormous amount of emissions and lives in its use. The reflective coating loses its properties after 8-10 years and upon replacement, the cooker will function as normal.

This unit will boil a litre of water in approximately 8 minutes and reach temperatures of over 750 C°. It can be used to cook, bake and even fry foods.

Different sizes are available for different needs, with the larger models being more powerful.
