When you take into account the power resources and energy you throw into cooking only; the utility bill might send shock waves through your body. Utilizing solar energy to cook is simpler than you think. Imagine trading a conventional oven for a solar one? It sounds interesting, to say the least. Solar cookers use reflective solar box or a parabolic disc. This technology is more advantageous in developing nations as it takes away the burden of scavenging forests in search of firewood for cooking, reduces the burden of cooking for women and minimizes respiratory diseases associated with the emission of smoke from firewood. Solar dryers have also been invented to preserve vegetables and fruits in gardens.
