The Sunstove 2000 solar oven allows users to cook food without having to use non-renewable or inefficient energy sources. The stove works by using solar energy with a reflective inner surface and perpex lid to trap solar radiation. It cooks and bakes food such as porridge, rice, stews, soup and bread, and can reach 124°C. Water can be brought to boil in 60 minutes.
The plastic outer casing of the stove is made of recycled plastic bottles, the inner insulation is made from the excess fibreglass of a factory based in Springs, South Africa, while the inner lining is made of recycled printing plates.
