yes, very interesting, particularly for those in the "sun" belt.

Thanks - I just ordered a small one to try out. Used to have a solar oven, but it was way too big to be portable. Gave it away.

Will do. There are a number of youtube vids on this particular oven, if you want to call it that. It's more like a cooking tube. I figure it's big enough for just one person, and I'm not much of a cook anyway, so will probably use it for the kind of stuff one would use for foil cooking in the fire - basic and simple. I do wish I could figure out how to make creme brulee when out camping. I could use my firestarter for a torch, I guess.

Why not just open a can of Campbell's Chunky Beef soup?
Is the tube dishwasher safe?

It's perfectly dishwasher safe if you're the dishwasher. But who has a "real" dishwasher out in the boonies?

As for the soup, if you buy one of these, you can ditch the can opener and the cans and make the trailer that much lighter. The little one only weighs a little over a pound, IIRC.

At $65 and free shipping, I don't figure it hurts to experiment. My big solar oven cost $300 years ago and I never used it once. I'm a big proponent of solar, but also of portability, and it was just too big. When you're home, you can open that can of soup and who needs solar ovens?

I'm not sure what opening a can of Cambell's Chunky Beef soup has to do with the topic unless, of course, one wanted to heat it up with the solar oven.

Glenn's allusion to it's shape I assume - tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Well, I just assumed he was talking about eating it cold, since I've done that before when I was too lazy to warm it up. You could wrap it up in foil and leave it on your car windshield in the sun and get the same effect as warming it on the stove, but it would take a lot longer.

Actually, I bought the sun thing because I like new techie stuff, and it was lots cheaper than a new computer or camera.
