For quite awhile now, I have known about solar ovens, but have never really thought about them much. I had the opportunity to see several models at the Self Reliance Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah. There are numerous videos on the internet about their use, but they always seemed more of a novelty item. However, their usefulness became apparent as I used the oven. It turned out to be very useful to have on hand, especially during the summer months when you could cook and not heat up the house with the regular oven. As a bonus, it uses no electricity, so there was energy savings, also. It can help you extend any stored fuel supplies (wood, charcoal, LP, etc.) and allow you to prepare a delicious meal using only the energy of the sun.
It was on my fifth birthday that Papa put his hand on my shoulder and said, “Remember my son, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.”
