Expert Rating:


As energy prices escalate, more and more people are recognizing the need for resources that are better for the environment as well as your wallet. Enter Global Sun Ovens and the clean, free cooking power of the sun. The Sun Oven can reach temperatures high enough to boil water and even roast a chicken in a time frame similar to conventional ovens, yet uses no gas or electricity. In a Sun Oven, sunlight enters through a glass door, and the black surfaces inside the oven capture and transform the sun's energy into heat that cannot escape the chamber. You can bake, boil or steam your favorite recipes, and since the ovens' even temperatures prevent burning, food doesn't need to be stirred while it cooks. Also, the oven has collapsible sides, and at 21 pounds, is portable enough to be carried by a small child. So, cook your meals evenly and thoroughly while reducing your carbon footprint using the Global Sun Oven whether ice-fishing in Maine, camping in the middle of nowhere, or just sitting in your backyard.


  • The unique solar design allows it to reach temperatures of up to 400 F just like a conventional oven, without the use of fossil fuels
  • It's light weight and smaller size allow you to adjust its position to follow the sun and maintain maximum solar energy
  • The one piece collapsible reflectors make it easy to set up and break down, and extremely portable
  • Each oven has a built in thermometer to let you know when you have reached the optimal temperature for cooking

How it Works

The black surfaces on the inside of the oven captures and transforms the sun's energy into a form that cannot escape the oven chamber. When a GLOBAL SUN OVEN® is focused in the sun, the interior of the oven is heated by the sun's energy. Direct and reflected sunlight enters the oven chamber through the glass door. It then turns to heat energy when it is absorbed by the black inner-shell and Levelator. This heat input causes the temperature inside the oven to rise until the heat loss of the oven is equal to the solar heat gain. The light energy absorbed by dark pots and the oven's dark interior is converted into longer wavelength heat energy. Most of this longer-wavelength radiant energy can not pass back out through the glass, ensuring more efficient cooking.
The Sun Oven does work in the winter time. The most important factor in using a GLOBAL SUN OVEN®is the brightness of the day, NOT the outside air temperature. Often, a 40-degree, clear, low-humidity day will allow food to cook faster than a 100-degree day with high humidity. The GLOBAL SUN OVEN®has been used very successfully at the base camp of a Mt. Everest expedition where the temperatures are often well below zero. There are, however, more cooking hours available in the summer than in the winter.
