How does the Pavarti parabolic solar oven work?

This solar oven works with solar thermal energy using 3 principles.
1/ Concentration: Place the oven facing the sun. The mirrors receive the sun's rays and concentrate them on the pot. They play the role of reflector.
2/ Capture: the black or dark colored pot absorbs the sun's rays without sending them back. IMPORTANT: do not use white or stainless steel which reflect the light.
3 / Conservation: To keep the heat around the pot and to ensure that the temperature rises efficiently, place the pot in a transparent cooking bag. 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.
