*'''April 2014: A photo is used to evaluate solar cooker output''' [[William Bradley]], founder of [[Earthbound Technology]], has been working on developing a new approach for analyzing the potential performance output for [[solar panel cooker]] and [[parabolic solar cooker]]s. It involves photographing the cookpot as the light source in controlled light conditions, and measuring the reflected light.

EB Hybrid Parabolic Cooker, 2-5-13

The EB Hybrid Parabolic Cooker being winter tested in Massachusetts, USA.

  • February 2013: The EB Hybrid Parabolic Cooker is currently being tested. It is our newest cooker. It is primarily a multi-sided parabolic solar cooker with the outermost section replaced with a conic section. Testing midwinter in Massachusetts shows that it can produce more than enough heat for cooking.
  • July 26, 2008: We cooked a complete meal for 15 people completely in the sun and did a presentation on solar cooking after the meal. It was a complete meal including appetizers, main course and dessert. This attracted enough attention to have the local TV station send a photographer and we had our moment on fame on the local news.
