I started in solar cooking in 2005 with a solar oven from Jura Sol that I bought secondhand from the Beelarong community garden in Brisbane.
In 2008, I ordered a parabolic solar cooker in India. Over the months, I experimented different dishes and ways of cooking.
This cooker is very efficient, the most efficient pot I found is a black cast iron pot.
When my friends saw the cooker, quite a few were interested to get one for them. I therefore decided, at the end of 2009, to make a bulk order of 50 cookers to the place in India where I initially bought my current parabolic solar cooker. I now find myself having a "small business" of selling solar cookers. Some cookers will be bought by some friends but there will be plenty available for the "public".
I have created a web page to describe the solar cookers I am selling.
In June 2009, I helped Stan and Jane from Sizzling Solar Systems to tend their stall at the Brisbane Greenfest. That was a great experience.
I have also built an insulated box with reclaimed materials. This box allows me to keep food warm for several hours. I can cook in the middle of the day and enjoy warm food at dinner time. This box can also be used to finish cooking. For example, I sometimes use it to cook rice; I bring the rice to boil for about 2 minutes and then put the pot into the box wrapped with a blanket, and the cooking finishes. It allows to save energy when using a conventional cooking top plate. It can also be used to make yogurt.
