Pedro Solberg is a pediatrician living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He first became interested in solar cooking after seeing a demonstration in 1992, at the Rio 92 meeting. Pedro has a weekend house in an island about 150 km from Rio and go there at least twice monthly. Up to 1 year ago we had no electricity save for a generator that was used about 10 hours/month. Using solar panels, he can have refrigerators running full time.

Pedro's solar cooking is done on the early desined solar box, mostly for fish, rice and potatoes. It is a success and amazes the local fishermen.

He also has a solar oven, with a parabolic mirror, but the temperatures achieved are too high for general use, reaching 450º C, melting pan handles.

Some vilages in the Northeastern part of Brazil would be an ideal place to disseminate solar cooking. There are high temperatures, a lack of wood for cooking, and a lack of electricity in many impoverished areas. Travel is a potential barrier as the distances are significant, 6-7 hours of bus riding. Before going there, Pedro recommends testing the local food (goat meat, black beans, corn) to research on cooking times. A very important use would be pasteurizing water and milk.
