Parabolic solar cookers for making tea and ironing napkins
Parabolic solar cookers work in freezing weather as long as the sun is shining. In this film you can watch me make a hot cup of tea between snowstorms. Parabolic solar cookers could be an important tool in your emergency preparedness kit for times when there is no electricity. There's another unique use for parabolic solar cookers that most people in the west will never need, but it could come in very handy and save a lot of money for the billions of people in the developing world who have no electricity--ever--and who do do their ironing with a hollow cast iron device filled with hot pieces of charcoal. It's smoky and expensive to keep that charcoal burning. In June I used my parabolic solar cooker to heat a charcoal iron and press my great grandmother's hundred year old linen napkins. More people need to know about this so I hope you will share this and other videos on my solarwindmama channel with your family and friends.
