SO YOU CAN DO THE AMAZING THINGS AND SOME COMMON HOUSEHOLD ITEMS TO BUILD A SOLAR COOKER, AND THAT’S GOING TO SAVE MONEY AND KEEP THE KITCHEN COOLER AND KEEP THE TASTY FOOD. WE HAVE A CARDBOARD BASE AND TINFOIL. WHAT YOU DO IS GLUE THAT AND CREATE A SERVICE. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS. THIS CUTS OUT IN TO A BOWL SHAPE. WHAT THAT DOES IS WHEN THE SUNLIGHT STRIKES IT, IT REFLECTS THE ENERGY BACK TO THE CENTER. THEN THE CENTER OF THIS SOLAR COOKER, WE PUT A BLACK POT. THAT DOES NOT REFLECT THAT OUT OF THE BLACK. IT OBSERVES THE HEAT. THEN THE FINAL SET IS TO PUT A PLASTIC BAG AROUND THAT. WHEN YOU’RE DONE, YOU CAN GET THE TEMPERATURES UP TO 250 DEGREES OR MORE ON THE SOLAR PANEL COOKERS.
