In today's society, most people do not routinely think of the cooking power of the sun. Oh, on a hot summer day one may joke about cooking an egg on the sidewalk. However, the reusable resource of the sun is often overlooked as a way to reduce energy loads on wood and electricity. Daily cooking with conventional heating such as ovens or stovetops, require long periods of heat, increasing the amount of fuel needed to cook. Solar cooking eliminates the cost of fuel to complete food preparation (or at least reduces the amount of fuel used for cooking). Solar cooking is reported to decrease fuel consumption by 38%.
