DIY SOLAR HACK – How to make a Parabolic Solar Cooker

Parabolic Solar Cooker

Parabolic Solar Cooker 2

Check out these really large solar cookers you can use to cook some food. Maybe they will be able to commercialize this and let people cook some steaks on it instead of using up our precious earth resources.

One of the easiest beginnings for a parabolic solar cooker can be found in thousands of backyards across the United States-the satellite dish, from the large C-band to the small digital dish. What happens to these relics once they are discarded? They are large and awkward and not easily recycled. Building your own solar cooker is a great way to reuse these parabolic-shaped units while reducing waste in the landfill.

    How long does it take to boil the pot? A small funnel solar cooker takes about an hour and a half to pasturise water… with a dish that big on a sunny day I’m guessing 20 seconds. 😀
