Sun Oven Description

  • Helps You Harness the Power of the Sun
    Whether you're dealing with a power outage, or just plain conserving energy, the Sun Oven can cook anything that can be baked in a conventional oven. It lets you harness the power of the sun to cook without fuel.
  • Lets You Create Your Favorite Recipes
    With the Sun Oven you can cook almost anything - breads, cakes, muffins, pizza, vegetables, poultry, fish, meats, casseroles, grains, pasta and desserts, just to name a few.
  • Provides High Cooking Temperatures
    Our Sun Ovens reach temperatures of 360 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, which are more than sufficient to bake, boil or steam your favorite foods - wherever you happen to take your Sun Oven.
  • Makes Foods Taste Better
    Sun-baked foods stay moister and have less shrinkage than conventional oven-cooked foods. Also, with the Sun Oven there is never any burning or scorching to ruin a meal.
  • Is Totally Safe
    Because of the unique way the Sun Oven operates, there is never a danger of fire.
  • Is Ruggedly Built
    The Sun Oven is not a toy. It is a serious appliance that is made for years of trouble-free use. Each Sun Oven is constructed with a strong plastic case that is both durable and easy to clean. It uses Reflexo specular-finish reflectors and a tempered glass door to retain the sun's powerful heat. The Sun Oven features an easily adjustable, self-contained leveling leg to maintain the oven's maximum exposure to the sun, while a built-in Levelator keeps foods level inside the oven to avoid spills.
  • Is Totally Portable
    You can take and use the Sun Oven virtually anywhere there is sunshine. When the oven is closed it is as portable as a small suitcase. It measures just 19'' x 19'' and weighs only 21 pounds. It even has a convenient built-in carry-handle.
  • Is a Great Hedge Against Power Interruptions
    With a Sun Oven, you will be prepared for any interruption to traditional power sources. You will be able to cook any kind of food as well as boiling water. You can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that as long as there is sunshine, you will have all the power you need to cook your meals.

For the past 14 years, these ovens have been used successfully in 126 countries around the world. Thousands of cooking enthusiasts in the United States and around the world are using them and appreciate the unparalleled features and benefits of using the best manufactured solar cooking device in the world.

Whether you are preparing for emergencies, or you just want to experience the superior taste and nutritional benefits of sun-baked foods, the sun oven will prove to be a wise investment.

"We love using the Sun Oven when we do outings." -- Sterling Allan

"I'm sure my sister-in-laws will enjoy them as much as we have been enjoying ours for years."

-- Laurel Shea
(Gave Sun Oven for Christmas gift, '03)

"I spent the last couple of days playing with the oven.

"Monday around 3:30 (pretty late) I put some corn on the cob into a casserole and it was cooked within 1-1/2 hours though it never got over 275.  Yesterday I made up some banana muffin mix in a round cake pan at 11am and it was done within 25 min, and browned up quite nicely,  then at noon I put in some boneless ribs (kind of an oxymoron, isn't it?) with some barbecue sauce and left them in for 5 hours (4 would have been more than sufficient) and they were wonderful. I had to leave the catch unlatched the last couple of hours to keep the temp around 225-250. So far I've seen it get to almost 350. I've found that placement AND angle are everything.   So far, so good!"

-- Suzie
Carson City, Nevada

"I like it a lot.  I baked a loaf of bread and then a cake all on the same day with no problems--they turned out fine.  The temperature maintained at 325 deg. F on the bread and about 310 on the cake."

-- Alan Wright
Salt Lake City, Utah

In the News:

  • Cooking with the power of the sun - LaRue Howells first bought a Global Sun Oven a year ago to be prepared for an emergency, but now she uses it a few times a week, all-year round and shares her knowledge with members of her church. "We baked bread when it was 17 degrees outside." (KSL TV; March 13th, 2009)

  • Learning to cook without electricity - When the power goes out, it's good to know how to make dinner without electricity, and without endangering the family or the home. A Utah couple is teaching people how to do that — using everything from an apple box to a solar sun box oven and fuels that can be used safely indoors as well as out. (Deseret News; Feb. 21, 2008)
  • Solution for Dirty Air - CNN Money features the sun oven as a solution to the pollution issue worldwide from cooking using wood. (Feb. 2007)
  • Sun Ovens - Dirty air has become a part of today’s world. One among them is the soot particles that are generated from cooking fire. The wood, charcoal and kerosene used in the cooking fire are responsible for causing respiratory infection. “Sun Ovens International” based in Elburn III is striving to develop comprehensive solar cooking programs which will radically decrease the world’s dependence on fuel wood and dung as primary cooking fuels while benefiting the environment raising the standard of living and improving the health of the poor. (Lots and Mindo; March, 2007)

Village Video

On April 9, 2009, after being a distributor for their company for 10 years now, I was able to meet with and interview Paul Munsen, CEO and inventor of the Global Sun Oven. We met in the parking lot of Costco in Lehi/American Fork, Utah.

The Villager, which is priced in the range of $10,000 in the U.S. market, is designed to cook enough food to feed hundreds of people -- a small village -- and sells best in the developing world. The company also has a "family" version, which is much smaller and affordable. We sell it at around $250 -- a little cheaper than most.

The company takes the proceeds from sales in the Western world to make the ovens more affordable in the developing world.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
