our wwoofer finished the solar oven saturday and we took it for a test cook yesterday, cooking spaghetti squash in the dutch oven.
it turned out splendidly.
today i was going to cook a pot pie in there but that flopped due to circumstances i'd rather not discuss.
tomorrow, i shall try again...meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
i am excited beyond words as my kitchen remains cool while our food gets cooked!
the oven was built out of scraps. the only cost was a can of silicon caulking to seal the seams and a roll of flashing for lining the interior. the two boxes were built from scraps of 1/4" plywood, insulation was a bunch of old t-shirts, and the glass cover was from an old window i dumpster dived on trash eve from someone's garbage. it's not the prettiest thing, but the beauty is on the inside in the form of cooked food.
