Roger Haines is a resident of San Diego, California, USA, and member of the San Diego Downtown Noon Rotary Club. His 2013 "double curve" panel cooker was made from commercial plastic bubble wrap insulation. His current 2014 design is made from reflective MPET (metalized polyester film bonded to IXPE (cross-linked polyester) foam insulation with a white polyester foam backing. The reflective polyester will not oxidize, cannot be scratched off, and has a high melting point. Importantly, the new material is easy to recycle and is environmentally safe through the whole production and recycling process without pollution.
