Solar Cooker

Parabolic (or concentrator) cookers are shaped like an umbrella. You place the cooking pot inside the ‘umbrella’ then focus the heat on to the pot by moving it back and forth until the sun’s rays are focused directly on it (think of focusing the sun’s rays with a magnifying glass). They can reach very high temperatures, and cook food quickly. But the parabolic shape makes them harder to manufacture, and they need to be turned to track the sun’s passage through the sky.
