Solarizing outdoor cooking
One Earth Designs has solved the terrible problem that afflicts so many of us -- guilty summer cooking. You know: the kind that uses fuel and produces emissions (emissions other than the sweet charring of charcoal-broiled rib eye steak). The SolSource Solar Cooker is basically a big mirror that concentrates and focuses the sun’s rays on the bottom of your pan (which sits on a grate bolted to the crossbeam over the concave mirror surface).
