How does the Pavarti parabolic solar cooker work?

This solar oven operates on solar thermal energy using 3 principles.
1/ Concentration: Place the oven facing the sun. the mirrors receive the sun’s rays and focus them on the pot. They act as reflectors.
2/ Capture: the black or dark-colored 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 container 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.
