Solar BBQ! The SolSource is very easy to assembly and a well built product. The dish is made of UV protected plastic and assembled with stainless steel bolts. The frame is painted steel and the pot holding assembly is enamel coated steel to handle the high temperature. The pan sits and a comfortable height off the ground and it is usable in wind up to about 10mph. Note that this unit is a solar BBQ that has a high 1000W output and cooks food in as little as 10 minutes (as you actively stir it). It doesn’t compare to most other solar cookers on the market because they are solar ovens that slowly bring food to 300degrees over a 1 to 2 hour period (more like a crock pot).The horizontal sun alignment is very good; the vertical alignment had some issues.

I’m highly impressed! Perfect for survival, great for camping and everyday use. As a former editor of a survival magazine, I’m always on the hunt for the next great survival tool. I’ve tested plenty of backpacking stoves, compact wood stoves, fire-starters and other camping gadgets. The SolSource solar cooker is no ordinary gadget. It is a well-made, well-engineered, thoroughly thought-out and excellently-designed product that survival-minded folks like me can really appreciate. I was one of the first to receive a SolSource last winter through their Kickstarter project, and have had the chance to use it here in Utah for three seasons.What have I learned? I can cook without the worry of storing dangerous fuel. As long as there’s sunshine, I can boil water, cook food, and feed my family during an emergency when electrical power and natural gas are down. That knowledge alone is the main reason I bought this solar cooker. Here in Utah, we have lots of sunshine. With my SolSource, I can take advantage of free energy almost all year long, and ditch the…
