There is a wide variety of solar cookers available in the marketplace today. Some designs are easy to build yourself with inexpensive materials, and plans can be found at solar cooker plans. Cookers that are available commercially can offer convenience, and are typically constructed from durable materials. Most self-made designs will not be waterproof. Basically, cookers can be divided into three groups: Box, Panel, Parabolic. The table below lists strengths and weaknesses of the most common types. Determine which type of cooker might best suit your requirements. It is always best to buy a cooker from a local source since shipping costs can be very expensive.

Below you will find a gallery of some featured manufacturers and vendors followed by a complete list of such. To see Manufacturers and vendors by country, first choose a country.

To be added to this list, write to webmaster@solarcooking.org or follow these directions to include an article about your company.
