This is the new, larger version of the popular All Season Solar Cooker. The "Camper" is large enought to hold a turkey roaster and powerful enough to roast that turkey just as well as your indoor oven.
Since this is a panel type cooker, there is no limit to the dimention of pot that you use. Two large pots, 12" frypans, oblong cake pans, tall pots... they all fit. The cooking area is 12" deep and 17" wide. There is no height limit in the cooking area so just about any type of pot will fit!

Introducing the 2017 All Season Solar Cooker
Here is the newest All Season Solar Cooker. Same great features as before, but now with a larger cooking area. 17 inches by 12 inches for the "Camper" model.
Same great functions, same great portability, same great compact folding and same great wind resistance.
Perfectly Captures the Sun from Horizon to Horizon
No other solar cooker can do this.
The photo on the left shows the All Season Solar Cooker Camper in its full down position. The sunsight is pointed directly at the horizon. in this position the ASSC Camper captures the first morning light or the last afternoon sunshine.
The photo on the right shows the ASSC Camper in its full up position. The sunsight points straight up, perfectly capturing the sun when it is directly over head.
These are the two extreme positions. The ASSC Camper can adjust to any angle between these two. Perfectly capturing the sun at any elevation.
This adjustability allows the user to cook any time of day that the sun is shining (Not just from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. like most other solar cookers)
On a day with 12 hours of sunshine, you get 12 hours of solar cooking.
Bigger Cooking Area Means More Cooking
Image on the left shows the All Season Solar Cooker Camper (ASSC Camper) holding two cooking pots (not supplied). Each pot has a capacity of about one gallon.
Image on the right shows the new model holding a turkey roaster (not supplied).
Since the ASSC Camper does not use a door, but rather a cooking bag (included) it will hold these large pots - and many other shapes - without restriction
The capacity is undiminshed - regardless of the adjustment of the reflector array.
No other solar cooker can do this.
Our Unique sighting device (Sunsight) takes the Guesswork Out of Focusing
This is the Sunsight.
This simple pin and block assembly helps the user to perfectly focus on the sun. When the pin has no shadow (photo on the left) the cooker is perfectly focused on the sun.
For longer cooking durations, turn the cooker ahead of the sun. The photo on the right shows the cooker with the sunsight aimed ahead of the sun's path. The cooker has been turned ahead of the sun and the reflector array has been moved upward to track the sun as crosses the sky.
This orientation gives about two hours of excellent cooking without the need to move the cooker.
For afternoon cooking, the shadow is adjusted ahead of the sun, as shown, but instead of going upward, the shadow should go downward as the sun begins its decent.

I am fairly experienced with home made panel cookers, so I have no doubts that this will cook well. Unfortunately, it's cloudy today so I will have to update after cooking with it.
The assembly instructions were clear enough, especially after watching the video on youtube. The instructions mention breaking it in to achieve the proper shape. I found a nice workaround using small office clips and some masonry twine. I clipped the clips to the corners and tied the twine with a prussic knot to draw the upper and lower panels together. Proper shape and more rigid, still adjusts easily.
Can't wait to cook!
Update: I just braised 2 cornish game hens in red wine. Ambient temperature was 32 degrees F, 2 1/2 hours and they're fall off the bone tender. Thin walled non-stick black pot with glass lid inside a large pyrex bowl with pyrex lid. Reached 225 F (inside the bowl on top of the pot- probably hotter inside the pot) and hovered there, simmering nicely. Started cooking at 10:30 am. Love this thing! Six stars!
Another update: After cooking the hens, I still had time to bake potatoes to go with them. Those took about 2 hours, came out perfect. Also, today I found some half gallon canning jars that are amber (like beer bottles) which should make good cooking vessels. Also available on amazon in several sizes. Got them at Ace Hardware, Ball is the brand, new product, I believe. I might try solar canning some high acid fruits in these.
Another update: Cooked a quiche sort of thing today. 1 lb sausage browned, 1 bell pepper diced, 1/2 onion diced, some frozen chopped spinach, dozen eggs, stirred all together, then into the cooker. 3 hours (partly cloudy), then into a Wonder Bag (look it up). an hour and a half later I had a hot meal on the table for my wife, after the sun had gone down. Still loving this thing.
This cooker is durable, light and fast to setup. Solar sight makes alignment easy. For long cooks precede alignment and allow sun to track over the cooker. No mess for 3 hrs.
On the other hand, if early morning, late evening, or winter cooking is important to you, or if you are rich enough to not worry about the price, then go ahead and buy this. It is a nice cooker, and I'm sure you will be happy with it.
Waiting for summer heat to see how amazing it can be. Must have oven bag or clear pyrex bowls to trap heat.
