The Infinity Bakery was conceived and constructed in 2014 by four students at Cambridge University in the UK.
The solar cooker is an example of a trough-style design. Separate cooking compartments are arranged along the top of the cooker and are accessed from either end. The students were aware that other more refined solar cookers exist for village bakery use, but without substantial subsities from a charitable source, most were outside the financial resources of the areas they wish to help. Their intent was to use recycled material where possible and local construction labor.
The reflector has a water-filled container on the upper leading edge that slowly releases water, adjusting the orientation of the reflector at the rate of 15° per hour.
