Here's a solar oven/cooker/dehydrator/wonderbox that anyone can make for less than $10.00 if they are inclined to scrounge a bit. This information was originally posted at For Sale - Ultimate Sun Oven Package--Webinar Special--GREAT Deal! | Survival Monkey Forums in response to yeti695's comment that having the Ultimate Sun Oven Package presently being sold by SafeCastle for $318.95 (marked down from $482.95.) would be nice but that it was a little too expensive at the moment. I can understand that. A lot of us have budgetary limitations. It's a sign of the times. The Ultimate Sun Oven Package (at $318.95) seems very expensive to me, considering that you can by a brand new electric range for $299.00. (Home Depot Model # RB526DHWW, marked down from $359.10.) I just bought one last week. (Good stove.) Obviously, much of the high price is the custom-made nesting pots with both clear glass and solid enameled lids. And the dehydrator-style wire racks. And the special parchment paper you have to use with it. And some other accessories. My cooker, on the other hand, is simple, easy to make, delightfully cheap, and very effective You don't have to point it directly at the sun because the mirrors can be adjusted to reflect the sun into the box. You can make it any size or shape, and conform it to pots and pans you can buy inexpensively at yard sales or thrift stores. Made 24" X 24", it grabs a lot of sun. The picture below is really all a person needs to start building their own solar oven, but here's the text from the other post: "Sun ovens are pretty simple. Sometimes what you can't afford to buy you just have to make. Here's my cheap-o DIY solar cooker. It's endlessly adjustable in size/shape, etc. 2-4" of sawdust is good insulation. Anything can be used as a spacer. Matching shot glasses (usually 3) are cheap and easy to find. Or baby food jars--whatever's handy. The inside container should be large enough to hold another lidded cooking container. That keeps most of the steam in the smaller container, and avoids having to ever remove and wash the larger one. Bulldog clips are cheap & tenacious. Coat hangers are cheap and adjustable, and also very windproof. If you're cooking on the ground, just run the hangers right into the ground. If cooking on a table, wrap them around a brick or something similar. You could do a bungee girdle on the flaps, but that's not supremely windproof. You definitely don't want almost-vertical flaps blowing closed. Unclip the mirrors for storage. EZ. Total build time, once you have your materials is about two minutes." It's an expedient solution, but if it doesn't get rained on it's good for a few years at least."
