Even better, there’s no need for crouching and bending over as you cook.

Dry off the water with a soft towel and it is ready for the next use. The solar reflectors stay cool during use, so you won’t have to wait around for the surface of the cooktop to cool before you clean the mirrors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well but expensive, came with missing and defective parts
By Dan Winkler on July 31, 2016
Solar cooking is great and more people should do it! The Sol Source does work very well, despite some complaints I have.

Negatives:

- Mine arrived with missing and defective parts. I got them to send replacement parts but one of the replacements was defective too.
- Although I thought I was getting a polished aluminum dish, the surface of the dish is in fact plastic. The plastic is rugged enough that normal cooking oil splatter doesn't harm it but it can get tiny holes melted in it if something very hot falls on it. See attached photo. In this case, we think this melt was caused by an ember from a stick that a kid was holding in the focal point to make it smoke. So if you don't let kids do that, you probably won't have any melting problems. Even if you do get a tiny hole or two melted in the surface like I did, it's only cosmetic damage and will not have any appreciable impact on performance unless you do it probably thousands of times. I later tried a Sun Chef parabolic cooker which does have an aluminum dish but it was so underpowered that I couldn't even boil water. So I think that's why Solsource chose plastic reflectors over aluminum: aluminum doesn't work nearly as well, at least when I compared a Sun Chef to a Solsource.
- The dish does not have a large enough range of motion to catch the early morning and late afternoon sun. You end up having to prop one leg up on something which is awkward and annoying.
- The clamp that locks the vertical elevation in place is poorly designed. Mine would not grip at all when it arrived. With a lot of effort, I was able to tighten it a bit, which allowed it to grip but made it hard to operate as the whole clamp would rotate around the tube. This is sure to require regular fiddling with in the future.
- The pot stand does not securely accommodate smaller pots. It's also inherently wobbly because it's only secured loosely by pins.
- Too much plastic, including the entire dish, both the body and the reflective surface. Others have reported breaking the plastic parts already and I'm suspicious of the ability of plastic to last well over the years.
- Expensive. Other dish cookers cost considerably less and are made almost entirely of metal.
- They say you can use any kind of cookware with it but I found it left a permanent mark on my cast iron pan where the hot spot was, maybe because it was hot enough to burn off the seasoning. I got better results using a steel pan with an aluminum bottom to help distribute the heat. This is probably true of all high powered parabolic cookers.
- It's quite awkward for one person to lift and move this thing. I could do it with difficulty but it's not well designed for this.
- When moving the unit, it's easy to dislodge the dish. To get it back in place, you have to rock it back and forth more than you can do with the vertical support secured so you have to disconnect that too.

Positives:

- It works (but probably no better than similar models which cost much less)
- The notch in the dish allows it to fit into the back of my car
- Very good customer service

I also tried a Sun Chef solar cooker. It did NOT work and could not get hot enough to boil water. I was attracted to it because it has aluminum reflectors which I think might be more rugged than plastic but durability without functionality isn't worth anything.
