SOLAR OVENS: All American (previously Global), All Season, Sunflair, Sport Solar Oven (formally SOS Sport)


          

 
If you follow me on Twitter, you will probably notice I cook and bake in my solar oven very frequently.  Although I use it year round, I use it probably three times a week from May through September because I live in a region of the USA that the temperature hovers around 100 degrees and I love being able to cook and bake without heating up the house or using electricity when I know the grid is getting heavy use from all the homes A/C's and other appliances running.

I have thought for a couple years now I should put 'my' oven on a static page to let people know which one I personally use - but it was constantly pushed down the priority.  I've done posts about 'my' solar oven before but I have never made it its own stand alone page.  That is what I was determined to do tonight.

However, I decided to add more options because not only do readers need to compare and make up their minds on what style and brand is right for them; but I also realized I love my solar oven in part because it's the only one I've used!  I researched before I bought mine, and feel I made an excellent decision - but I've never used another brand so I'm not an expert on comparing the different cooking and baking styles between them!

So that my friends is how this page came about.



I am going to start off with the oven I own.  I bought this one (this page is not sponsored) a few years ago when they were still calling themselves "Global Sun Oven" - later changed to All American.   My version was literally just as they were coming out with the new style; but I got a good deal on mine as it was the 'older' style.  What does that mean?  It means they improved a couple tiny, teeny things like the stand is now a "T" shape instead of just a post and they are now bright blue as compared to black.  They also made the inside a bit larger so you can use a 9X13" pan and a couple other small improvements (read about them below in the product description).


Here is the one I own - complete with the accessory package.  It's about 24 pounds so you can't 'carry' it with you hiking or backpacking - but if you are tent camping and arriving in a vehicle, you can indeed take it with you.
