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.

A high performance solar box cooker, the All American Sun Oven is made of durable molded fiberglass and kiln-dried hardwood for years of use.

SolSource is a high-performance parabolic solar cooker that harnesses the energy of the sun for outdoor cooking. Perfect for your garden, balcony, backyard or rooftop, it is an innovative way to BBQ, grill, steam, bake, boil or fry. Inspired by the problem of indoor pollution from household stoves faced by rural families in China, SolSource is the first of a growing range of products from One Earth Designs.
The key design feature of the All Season Solar Cooker is its adjustable, coordinated reflector array. Working from one of two initial orientations "summer/midday" or "winter/morning", it can focus on a solar elevation of 40º to 90º (summer) or 0º to 50º (winter). The cooker 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.
