This design from Roger Bernard is a very light and simple solar panel cooker that was the inspiration for the popular CooKit. It is made mainly doing some cuts in a rectangular cardboard box and lining it up with some reflective material. The cooking recipient has to be black and incorporate some material to induce the greenhouse effect, such as a plastic bag or a glass bowl. Its size allows to cook small quantities of food, for one person.
