But before you take any further steps 

Solar cooking is a widely used practice around the world since 1767. There are four different types of solar cookers. Box, panel, tube and parabolic cookers. Most products cook well under perfect conditions (in mid summer, clear skies and no wind), but does not function well otherwise . We believe that box cookers are the only ones which can be designed for quality, convenience and style and still cook impressively under all weather conditions all year long.
