I became interested in solar cooking while tending our booth at craft shows. I quickly tire of fast food or cold sandwiches and wished for an easy way to cook a hot meal. That lead me to buy my SOS Sport. The Sport is good, but I found it too large and cumbersome to take to the craft shows. It took up took much valuable space in the truck. So I decided to take a step backwards to a simpler solar oven. I bought a CooKit. The CooKit is really just a piece of cardboard, shiny on one side, that folds up very small. Perfect for travel. The food is placed inside of a black pot, which is placed into a cooking bag, and then into the oven. I gave it a first try this weekend with a pot of beans. It worked wonderfully well. I am quite pleased and will definitely be taking this to the craft shows this year. Now I just have to decide what to make for lunch.
The CooKit can be purchased with or without a black pot. A template for making a Cookit can be found on-line.
