Guess not anytime or anywhere as it has to be in the day and in sunlight. #failReply
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’Reply
looks fun though.Reply
Mike Seiferd, neat solar oven idea.Reply
If truly effective then it will be a wonderful way to save many from breathing smoke from buring fires unless cooking at night.Reply
Battery operated as well.Reply
Get this to Puerto Rico and the Virgin islands.Reply
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 cookingReply
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.Reply
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….Reply
Paul Boyle for your road trips on the bike ? xReply
That’s some peice of kit that ? feckin awesome xReply
Paul Boyle total eh? I’m no sure if it’s just a prototype or if u can actually buy them but defo a breakthrough from having to carry a gas bottle or turn into bear cunt wi a few twigs ? xReply
As long as they are long skinny meals. Don’t try to roast a whole turkey in there…Reply
Now I just need a version I can fit well into a backpack =).Reply
Anytime? If you need sun “anytime” sounds a little fake, doesn’t it?Reply
