DIY: How To Build Your Own Umbrella Solar Cooker

Solar cookers are ovens that harness the sun’s rays and use them to create a source of heat. They can be used to heat food or drink, cook food, or sterilize drinking water. Solar cookers are popular in the developing world these days- they can be very inexpensive, some coming as cheap as $5. They don’t require any fuel or electricity, which cuts down on operating costs as well. Since fire wood isn’t used, they help cut down on deforestation (and the often-following desertification). They’re also safer, as wood stoves can be a fire hazard.
