Solar Cookers, Ovens and Stoves: Comparing The Options

Solar cooking has been getting a lot of good press in the last months, and for good reason! Solar cooking is a great idea for anyone looking to reduce their fuel use, keep their kitchen cool or find a more convenient alternative to a conventional stove.

Luckily, if you're searching for a solar cooker, you now have more options than ever. From an oven that can bake a Turkey, to a stove that can cook a meal under clouds and snow, solar cooking technology has come a long way since your grade pizza box oven!

Comparing stoves is like picking a car; each model excels for certain uses and but may fall short in others. If fact, it's common for solar chefs to combine technology to meet the needs of their situation and environment. In order to demystify the options, we have created a comparison looking the most popular solar cookers on the market. Due to the nature of the comparison, we have compared cooker types rather than models, with exception to the GoSun solar cooking devices which have no parallels.  

Consider a few key questions before exploring your options:

  • Do you have good continuous sunlight where you intend to cook?
  • Are you willing to change cooking habits to adapt to a new technology?
  • Do you plan on using the stove daily or just on occasion?
  • Will you use your cooker at home or for on-the-go adventure?
