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 removed the photo for now. Tom Sponheim 04:09, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

New item

I would like to write a link in "the parabolic reflector" to Atouts Soleil organization :

I would also like to add some lines about the asymetrical reflector of my solar cooker.

Thank you. Best wishes.

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?
