All Season Solar Cooker

My (Jim La Joie's) goal is to have an established solar cooking agency adopt the All Season Solar Cooker as its own.

If your mission is to promote solar cooking and introduce the most cost efficient designs, to pasteurize a greater quantity of water, and to cook a greater amount of food on any solar day, please continue reading.

I have tested the All Season Solar Cooker (ASSC) against commercially available panel and box cookers. Because of its ability to efficiently capture the rising sun, the All Season Solar Cooker pasteurizes more water in a single solar day.

I recently tested the ASSC against the world famous CooKit. The test involved pasteurizing water. The only variable was the design of the cooker. Both were reoriented once per hour. When the water in a cooker reached 160º the container was emptied and filled with fresh cold water.

At the end of the day, the ASSC had produced 8 liters of safe water. The CooKit had produced 4.

The key design feature of the ASSC is its adjustable, coordinated reflector array. The ASSC, working from one of two initial orientations "summer/midday" or "winter/morning", can focus on a solar elevation of 40º to 90º (summer) or 0º to 50º (winter). The ASSC accomplishes this while maintaining a level cooking floor at all times. The advantage of the ASSC is that it can efficiently capture the earliest morning sun - starting cooking far earlier than most other designs. The solar cook can obtain cooking-level temperatures from sunup to sundown.

The ASSC folds into flat package that is very light weight for easy transportation and shipping.

The low cost and high efficiency of the All Season Solar Cooker make it a great choice for solar cooking agencies’ distribution programs.
