Sun Ovens - The one I use plus two more options for portable use and camping as well!

Originally posted in June, 2015 - it's still relevant so here it is again in 2019!


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.  It's used for everything from roasted chicken, roasts, pork roast, bbq pork and French Dips, to breads, muffins, pies, cakes and cookies.

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 during the hot summer.

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.

I am going to start off with the oven I own.  I bought this one 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.
