Warm Up to Solar Cooking With the Best Solar Oven You Can Buy

How would you like to cook food without having to light a fire? You can do it with solar cooking. Saving money and fuel are just a couple of its benefits.

Warm up to solar cooking with the Sun Oven–the best solar oven you can buy. And that’s not meant to be marketing hype.

The Sun Oven has features that make it superior to its immitators. It’s definitely better than cooking in a tin foil covered box.

You don’t have to wait for a disaster to use a Sun Oven either. It can be useful right now. The more you use one now, the more ready you’ll be in times of disaster or emergency. Plus, it’s more versatile than you might think.

Paul Munsen, President of Global Sun Ovens International, was my guest on DestinySurvival Radio yesterday. He was on with me a little over a year ago, and at that time we covered a lot of the basics about why you should have a Sun Oven in your survival kitchen.

We touched on some of the same information yesterday, but I had new questions for him. His answers were enlightening and convincing. Paul is a well spoken and knowledgeable guest who doesn’t have to resort to hype or spin to talk about how versatile and practical the Sun Oven really is.

In case you’re wondering what you can cook in a Sun Oven, there are hundreds of recipes accessible at www.sunoven.com.

Here are a few of the Sun Oven’s benefits.

  • Bake, boil or steam foods. Do any kind of cooking, except frying.
  • Slow cook or refocus the oven every 30 minutes to cook in roughly the same amount of time as you would in a conventional oven.
  • Rehydrate freeze dried storage food with one third less water than package directions recommend. No worries about boiling water ahead of time.
  • Dehydrate your own foods
  • Boil or pasteurize water.
  • It’s not necessary to light a fire to cook. No risk of forest fires when you’re camping.
  • Storing a lot of fuel for cooking isn’t necessary.
  • Use the Sun Oven even in winter.
  • Use it as a “wonder box” on cloudy days to finish cooking and save energy.
  • It has other uses, too. Try growing sprouts in winter. Sterilize medical instruments. Even use it to keep food cool.
  • It cleans easily, but likely won’t need to be cleaned much.
  • It’s durable and requires little or no repair.
  • It’s an investment that will pay for itself.
  • It’s made in the U.S. (except the thermometer).
Sun Ovens are used in 130 countries around the world. A large commercial model is used in such places as orphanages.

When you’re ready to buy a Sun Oven, don’t settle for an immitation. Buy the real thing because it’s safer and will give you better performance.

Of course, you can buy a Sun Oven directly from the manufacturer at www.sunoven.com. You can also buy from the following DestinySurvival sponsors. They’re featured in the Prep Mart. Or find some of them on the sidebar. Search for Sun Oven on the sponsor’s site of your choice.
