The Solar Picnic solar panel cooker was designed by Amir Komarizade in Iran. One can build it from transparent plastic sheeting (waterproof) or even from cardboard, using aluminum coated adhesive tape for its reflecting surface. It will not only cook or warm foods at any latitude, it can also heat water for a cup of tea in 10-20 minutes (depending on the season at middle latitudes).
