How does the Bernard solar stove work?

The stove is a table with a hole in the top to hold the pot. Between the front legs of this table, there is a reflector, made of 9 mirrors fixed on a frame to concentrate the sun rays on the bottom of the pot. The frame turns around a horizontal axis to adjust the inclination to the sun. Under the table top, a glass insulating box acts as a greenhouse, to keep the bottom part of the pot warm. After use, the reflector folds away to save space.
