I fell in love with this solar oven pretty quickly. It uses solar energy to generate temperatures up to a searing 550 degrees, more than enough to cook food and boil water. And amazingly, it’s an all-weather solar oven meaning you can cook in the rain, snow, or any other time it is cloudy.
To use GoSun, dice and prepare the food and stuff it into the foot-long cooking tube. Slide the vacuum tube into the GoSun and adjust the parabolic reflective wings to best capture the sun’s energy. About 30-45 minutes later, you’ll have a fully cooked meal. The first time you use it, it’s pretty mind-blowing.
The GoSun weighs about 2 lbs. and comes with a EVA foam hardshell case for storage. The package include the durable evacuated glass tube oven, two parabolic reflectors, EVA frame, stainless steel cooking tray, GoSun Dial, silicone cooking pans, universal action mount, cleaning brush, User Manual and Mini Cookbook.
Note that you will get best results when the sun is directly overhead. Morning or late night cooking isn’t feasible with this or any other solar oven. And cloud cover does slow the process considerably, making a 30-minute boil of water stretch out 2-3 times longer.
