Photo not from Africa, but from the Caribbean
This text on the page needs to be changed or a different photo needs to be uploaded. The photo was taken either in Haiti or Jamaica:
"The parabolic cookers areImage:Being used in Africa as well, and the photo below confirms it further."

I would like to write a link in "the parabolic reflector" to Atouts Soleil organization : http://tablesol.free.fr.
I would also like to add some lines about the asymetrical reflector of my solar cooker.
Thank you. Best wishes.

I've added a "Quick Notes" section on the main page.

How should this article develop?
In the last year or so, i.e. 2011, I've done a lot of edits to this page. If you compare it with the Wikipedia "Solar cooker" page, which I have also been editing, you'll see a lot of similarities.
However, there are also large differences. This article is much longer than the Wikipedia one. That's because this page started off, in the early 1980s, as a "compendium" of solar cookers, written by Ashok Kundapur. He wrote a set of descriptions of a whole lot of solar cookers that then existed. How valuable these descriptions are now, some 30 years later, is a matter for debate. He did not include much in the way of theoretical background. Brian White and I have put some theory into the article more recently.
I have not deleted any of Ashok's material (apart from a few trivial edits), but I do feel that, in the interest of conciseness, some of it should go.
What do other people think?
