Cheap feeling plastic. Clunky UI.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Device, May 13, 2014
I bought this cooker after seeing it on a Kickstarter promotion, and boy am I glad I did! I live in the Pacific NW, so have only had a few chances to use the device, but summer is coming and I foresee much more use. The few times I have used it have been cold, with low winter sun, and the cooker has performed admirably.

The unit is quite easy to set up, though beware that it is not really "portable". That is, when the dish is built, it is hard to take apart (this isn't a device that you'd take camping!). The whole thing is lightweight, but feels sturdy. I store mine in my garage when not in use, though I think with the summer coming I might buy a cover and leave it in the backyard for easy access.

The focal point of the cooker gets incredibly hot, and thus your pan will too. I need to find a better pan for this issue (cast iron gets a real "hot spot" where the focal point is, so you need to rotate the pan often). Maybe a heavy aluminum simmer plate would help. (It's fun trying to figure this stuff out!)

In short (or long), this is a great device. Fun to use, and a great conversation starter. Solar-cooking bacon, eggs, and pancakes in the front yard gets the neighbors talking...

Great Job, OED!

This review is from: David Comes To Life (MP3 Music)
Don't let Pink Eyes' vocals scare you off. The music here is dense, layered, and quite melodic, and Damian's growl fits right in. The band has taken another step forward in its evolution, and members have created an amazing album. Infinitely listenable!

4.0 out of 5 stars TYPOS!, November 10, 2010

Great story, and great writing. Too bad the digital edition is riddled with spelling errors and typos. It is very distracting.
