The Hypar Solar Cooker is a parabolic solar cooker designed by William Bradley, founder of Earthbound Technology. According to the designer, it is a new type of solar cooker that is easier and less labor intensive to build than most parabolic cookers. The Hypar Cooker is primarily a multi-sided parabolic with the outermost portion of the parabola replaced with a conic section.

Bradley feels the Hypar cooker is safer than typical parabolic cookers because, with the multisided parabola, the focal point is spread over a focal area. Also, the focal area is located inside the Hypar cooker making it safer than cookers that have the focal point located outside the cooker.
