2.0 out of 5 stars Great teaching tool, but not great to actually use March 10, 2012

If you are looking for something to help show how a solar oven *could* work, then this oven would be Ok. It does come with a small booklet suggesting things that you could discuss while showing the solar oven.
However, if you want to take it a step furter, and actually cook in it, you may be disappointed as we were. We have a digital thermometer that we used to check the oven temperature. It never got above 150 degrees. We preheated the oven in the sun for over an hour. There were no clouds in the sky, and it was 60-65 degrees outstide. We moved the box to follow the sun as well, and it still never heated up as it should. Further, the temperature was not consistent across the bottom of the box. This happened b/c of the shade that was caused by the panels on the box. Further, in order to avoid the shade of the box, you have to tilt the box on a rock, or piece of wood. When you tilt something, it is going to all slide down and mush up in the bottom of the box,not giving you an even cooking surface, and possibly running off the top of your pan. They do provide a bag for baking something in, but we did not want to cook anything in a plastic bag, especially something long term. Too many toxicity concerns for us, cooking in a plastic bag. Anyway,we tried cooking something very simple in it, cornbread. After reading and researching how long it would take the bread to cook, it was determined it would take about twice as long as a regular oven, given the temperature of the solar oven. That would have meant the bread would take slightly over an hour to cook. Well, we left the cornbread in the oven for more than 4 hours. We moved the box all day, following the sun.Yet it never cooked.
