Summary

Report on Greenhouse Enclosures Comparison Tests by Teong Tan February 2008

Exerpt:

Several types of greenhouse enclosures are being used for cooking with the Solar Cookers International’s ‘CooKit’. The two most popular ones are the use of a heat-resistant plastic bag and the use of the Solar Household Energy’s ‘HotPot’. The ‘HotPot’ consists of a clear glass lid and a clear glass bowl that form an enclosed greenhouse for a black metal bowl. Many people have also successfully used only a clear glass lid with their pot to solar cook. I used a pot with a clear glass lid for most of my solar cooking because it was difficult for me to obtain heat-resistant oven bags. Oven bags also require regular replacement due to wear and tear, and it is therefore not as cost efficient in the long term. On the other hand, the ‘HotPot’ is very effective and durable, but they are expensive and also not available for sale in most part of the world. I was lucky to find a clear glass bowl, which fits the lower portion of my three-quart size Graniteware enamel pot perfectly. Hence, I have my own little ‘HotPot’ after adding a clear glass lid to it. Recently, I decided to find out, through a simple test method, how the use of heat-resistant plastic bags, the ‘HotPot’, the metal lid and the clear glass lid would faired when compared with each other.
