Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

With the goal of creating a fuel-free off the grid cooking experience, inventor Patrick Sherwin launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013 to provide funding for the GoSun Stove.  The solar stove is able to cook a full meal in 10 minutes and can reach temperatures of over 550 F.

According to the product creators… “Today around 3 billion people cook with dirty fuel sources; such as wood, dung or charcoal. As a result, smoke inhalation related illness ranks with malaria and AIDs as one of the great greatest problems facing the world. In addition, fuel wood scarcity drives families around the world to spend many hours collecting and transporting heavy loads of fuel wood, often to the detriment of already endangered ecosystems. If fire wood is purchased it often makes a sizeable portion of the family’s income.”

How It Works

The heart of the GoSun Stove is the glass vacuum tube that acts as the device’s cooking chamber.  A fold out anodized aluminum sheet captures the suns energy and then transfers and amplifies the heat in the evacuated glass cooking tube. By maintaining 80-90% of the energy captured from the sun, the GoSun Stove can keep meals warm all day if necessary…

Overcast skies?  Not a problem.  The GoSun Grill comes with a lithium-ion sun charged battery that kicks on when clouds block the suns rays from reaching the stove.  The stove can also be started on a completely cloudy day or at night by using the battery.  The GoSun Grill, which has the battery, is a larger solar cooker that has an expected release date of June 2016…

Matt Gillespie, who works with GoSun, recently told MailOnline, “It’s profoundly efficient and a game-changer for fuel-free cooking. When clouds interrupt, the food keeps on cooking with the heat stored inside the vacuum tube. For this same reason the GoSun is extremely versatile, cooking hot meals in the harshest of environments. Even against freezing temperatures and blowing winds, the GoSun’s cooking time is hardly effected. We love to see people’s reactions when we’re roasting garlic, or steaming veggies on a mostly overcast day.”

Revolutionary New Model

Technologies such as the GoSun Stove are rapidly changing the way people cook in industrialized countries and poverty stricken communities alike.  We can only hope that innovative inventors will continue to bring their products to market and one day create a world where everyone has access to renewable and off the grid technologies such as the GoSun Stove.

Guess not anytime or anywhere as it has to be in the day and in sunlight. #fail

Or you could just do what humans have done for over 20,000 years….leave the food to dry in the sun naturally (sun-dried tomatoes and just about any kind of jerky). Besides, what’s the carbon footprint of manufacturing the machine verses creating a smokehouse? For example, the toxic waste from the production and recycling of solar panels has a larger carbon footprint than wind turbines. I buy used cars because to purchase a brand new one has a huge carbon footprint!!! Just sayin’

No good in the uk then………..lol

Mike Seiferd, neat solar oven idea.

If truly effective then it will be a wonderful way to save many from breathing smoke from buring fires unless cooking at night.

    Battery operated as well.

Explain to me how a poverty person in a third world or 10th world country that uses dirty fuel can possibly afford this $230 Appliance! You can, however, make a makeshift solar oven with a soda can a tin can or a Pringles box. Lots of do-it-yourself helpers online. There’s one wonderful design using a pizza box black paint tin foil and more to make an under $10 maybe even under $5 solar oven that goes camping and every place else. The downside of solar ovens cloudy and rainy days. Nothing like a rainstorm to put a damper on your solar Adventure in cooking

    I am not sure either location I mentioned is a “10th” world country…they are both American territories with some backing (although it is looking less so with the current POTUS). And $230 Is quite a lot less than a full oven…and this needs no infrastrucure which is currently lacking in many places around the world…and with electricity 6 months away this kind of solution is a lot more plausible in the short run.

    In my opinion this is product not aimed at the third world countries but rather at the first ones , with the whole purpose of getting us to reconsider our choices and find alternatives for our humongous energy consumption level….

    I don’t think anyone in London will consider a DYI solutions such as the one you mentioned… but they will consider this.

    I think that the narrative is badly designed to address problems in poor countries where this technology is completely unaffordable.

    The narrative and the product should be aimed at getting people to use alternative sources of energy in the countries where this can take off , because people can afford it… these countries also happen to be the highest energy consumers ….

    I spend a lot of time in Africa over the last 2 years – this will fail there …. but then again, entire African countries use less resources than London does and , hats off to them , they have developed their own ingenious solutions similar to this….
