The Karupika is a parabolic cooker with two pivots that allow it to be turned towards the sun: one allows rotation and the other controls the angle of parabola's elevation. It is a lightweight cooker that is easy to use. It can be assembled in 3 minutes, and can boil a liter of water in 33 minutes. The Karupika uses a black recipient of 16 cm, which allows the temperature to reach 205 ºC.


All components are made of aluminium, with a highly reflctive aluminium laminate (aca 4250E made in U.S.A), 0.5mm thick.
