You need the right kind of pots to successfully cook in a solar oven. They don’t have to be special or fancy, but they do have to be dark colored. And this I didn’t have! So I started by using an old electric skillet bottom, but it had a white top. It cooked okay, but I knew the dark pots would work better. Looked at Wal-Mart. Had one, but too expensive. Looked at Target. Also, too expensive. Looked at a camping store. Yep! too expensive. I didn’t want to invest a lot of money in a pot that I really might not need. So I decided to take the Garage Sale route — and I hate garage sales. Then I remembered that I had just gotten a new set of pots last summer, so where was the old set? Looked and looked and couldn’t find them.
– at last
– in the garage
– in a box
– under a lot of wood
– under a lot of clock patterns
– there were the old pots — perfect — and just waiting.
Of course, now that I found these old pots, I have found numerous other suitable pans in my kitchen. Where were they hiding all that time?
