Solar Brother offers plans for the Din A Saur solar cooker.

Based on an original idea by Bernard Mueller 😉 build your own solar cooker in less than 5 minutes, at a fraction of the cost. Cooking and enjoying your favourite dishes with the energy of the sun is within everyone’s reach! We recommend you opt for the S.Reflect® mirror mirror for optimum mirror performance and flexibility.

How does the Din A Saur solar cooker work?

This type of solar oven uses solar thermal energy according to 3 principles:
Concentration: Place the oven facing the sun. The mirrors receive the sun’s rays and focus them on the pot in the middle of the oven. They act as reflectors.

2/ Capture: the black or dark pot absorbs the sun’s rays without reflecting them back. IMPORTANT: do not use white or stainless steel, which reflect light.

3/ Storage: To ensure that the heat remains around the pot and that the temperature rises efficiently, place the pot in a transparent cooking bag (available in stores or on our website). It can also be surrounded by two glass or Pyrex dishes to reproduce the greenhouse effect.

For your safety
– Wear glasses to protect your eyes from mirror reflections when handling the oven in the sun.
– Wearprotective gloves when removing hot food after cooking.
