Sun Oven Overview

Powerless Cooking
Description: While the Sun Oven isn't a FUEL, the SUN is! We couldn't talk about fuels, without mentioning the Sun. We love our Sun Ovens. Often times people ask us how we would cook our food if there were no power. Our answer is: We would use the Sun Oven as much as possible, then fill in the rest with a variety of fuels and stoves. Benefits: - Uses the Sun as a source of fuel for cooking - Can be used in the year round as long as there is enough sun to cast a shadow - Functions just like a home oven - Preserves your other fuel stores Drawbacks: - Can't be used on rainy days - Isn't as fast and effective to boil water as some other…

Powerless Cooking: Sun Ovens

Powerless Cooking
When Julie and I first started this blog back in 2008 we decided to take things in BabySteps so as to not get overwhelmed. One of the biggest fears we had about getting started was dealing with powerless cooking situations, so we decided to work on getting our food first so that we would at least be doing SOMETHING. Over the last few months you may have noticed us going through powerless emergencies during the 7 Day Challenge, and discussing what we would do in extended powerless situations in the One Second After book discussions. Needless to say, we are NOW definitely thinking about powerless cooking! Introducing Global Sun Oven Right before the 7 Day Challenge we were contacted by Global Sun Oven and they were gracious enough to let…
