Solar Oven

Solar ovens are devices that use solar radiation as their energy source for baking (and cooking); they are a sub-category of solar cookers. The food is placed in a box, which has, preferably, an even heat distribution. The box can be heated by direct sunlight entering through one or two windows (as in the case of box cookers) or by sunlight concentrated by a parabolic reflector. Some are appropriate for household use, others for commercial purposes. The term solar oven is often used synonymously with Solar Cooker and Solar Box Cooker.
