Global Sun Oven
Hotwire is offering the Global Sun Oven for $285.00 FOB from Tarpon Springs, Florida. That price includes a standard size oven, reflectors, stand and case, and a black enamel cooking pot with a lid.
Cooking in a Global Sun Oven (GSO) is easy, fun, natural, and nutritious, while helping the environment. GSOs are ideal for everyday use on your boat, in your back yard, at picnics, while camping, or in the event of a power failure. They can help keep your house cool in the summer by keeping the cooking heat outside.
The ovens were developed for use in less developed countries where wood fuel is expensive and disappearing rapidly. But they work wherever the sun shines. Our customers use them on their boats, or when hurricanes take out the power grid, or just for “eco/green” reasons: no electric bill increases or fuel usage!
Even though it is called an oven, food can be baked, boiled, and steamed at cooking temperatures of 360° F to 400° F. There is no movement of air in a GSO, allowing food to stay moist and tender and flavorful. Sun-baked roasts are tastier and more succulent, and sun-baked bread has unparalleled taste and texture. The aroma of food sunning itself in a GSO is sure to please your senses.
I made a fabulous bean soup, froze the leftovers in the pot overnight, put the pot with its frozen contents into the solar oven the next morning morning and had hot soup for lunch! Our Thanksgiving turkey has been cooked in the pot with rave reviews!
Temperatures in a GSO rise slowly and evenly, allowing complex carbohydrates time to break down into simple sugars, emanating subtle natural flavors. The even temperature of the GSO prevents burning, so you do not need to stir your food while it is cooking.
There are two ways to cook in a GSO. If you refocus the oven to follow the sun every 25 to 30 minutes, cooking times and methods will be very similar to cooking with a conventional stove or oven. Or a GSO can be used for slow cooking, much like a crock-pot. You can prepare your dinner, put it in the GSO, point the oven where the sun will be approximately halfway through the time you will be gone. Leave, and come home to a tasty, slow-cooked dinner. If you run late, there is no need to worry; the GSO will keep your food warm, moist, and fresh for hours.
