Yay! I now have a "Sun Oven" from Sun Ovens International, http://www.sunoven.com/usa.asp
--I think this is the same one S B has, am I right?
Anyway, I cooked some roasted potatoes the first day (best potatoes I ever ate), and the next day some lentils (best lentils I ever ate). I'm delighted and can't wait to try more things. It's much easier than I thought it would be!
Question 1: For those here who've used a solar cooker, what foods should I try next? Which things do you like best?
Qu. 2: I'm not sure I'm focusing it correctly toward the sun. Even at noon, it only reached 270 degrees, which was fine for what I'm cooking, but it would be fun to get it hotter and make cornbread or something. The instructions say to adjust according to shadows in the box, but I can't seem to "see" the shadows they are talking about. My perception problem or something. Is there some trick to getting it vertically oriented? Side to side is easy because I can move it so the shadows on the ground are the same on both sides. Somehow I think this is something simple that others can do but I don't "get."
