Solar cookers are simple, low cost and effective. They are basically insulated enclosures with a clear top to allow sunshine to enter. The sunshine is absorbed by both the food and a black surface, heating up the enclosure and cooking the food. Reflectors can be used to increase heating by allowing more sunshine to enter the cooker.
