Martin explains that it is an improvement over existing smelter technology, in that it puts the focus of the sun safely into a hole in the ground. That means the focus of the sun is not in the air, where the melted metal can spill on people, or where someone can get injured. The focus or target does not move around, but is stable. Not only can this device be used as a solar cooker, it can also be used to generate steam, sterilize medical instruments, or melt rocks, glass and metals.

Solar Smelters International is a non-profit organization - dedicated to providing high temperature solar energy applications for those in need - promoting and educating the public regarding industrial solar process heat and the safety of its use; encouraging all concerned to harness concentrated sunlight for materials processing - such as smelting of rocks/glass/metals, and for the processing of waste/chemicals via industrial solar process temperatures in producing steam/water distillation. The organization founder is Martin Nix.
