A parabolic mirror reflects the sun’s rays toward a matte-black pot, which sits atop the point of heat concentration in the center of the dish. The pot absorbs the contrated energy of the sun’s rays. The contents of the pot then beging to cook. Meals are not the only thing which can be prepared. It is also suitable to boil water, to bake, pan fry, and to assist in color dying, or weaving.
The Solar Cooker was developed by Dr. Ing. Dieter Seifert with the
consideration of technical abilities and supplies, so that the population which
suffers from fuel shortages could have another option.
The goal is the self-sufficient production of cookers in the place of use.
We offer practical assistance for self-assistance world wide!
A functioning Solar Cooker:
Frees women and
children in countries with fuel shortages from the daily chore of gathering wood
and cooking with smoke, which is damaging to the health.
integrity of treed areas; reforesting activities become more successful and the
use of animal dung can be used for agricultural purposes, rather than burned.
workshops are developed in the place of use. This improves the level o f
education, creates employment opportunities and makes solar cookers affordable
for the locals.
quality of life in rural areas. The
rural migration and its consequences can therefore be reduced.
Of course, this simple concept also works in Europe, for an alternative
to the use of fossil fuels is supplied freely throughout the world – with the
use of the sun.
If you order a solar cooker from us, you’ll suddenly have a large circle of friends who cook and grill without soot and smoke. The deciding factor for a well functioning SK14, is having the closest thing to a cloudless sky as possible, the temperature outside is less important. On clear, sunny winter days (down to –10° C) you can still use the unbelievable power of the sun.
SK14 is durable, although light, cost effective to build and easy to use.
Its production capacity is approx. 600 Watts.
During a good, sunny day, 3 Liters of Water will cook in 30 minutes.
You can provide for 20 people with the SK14, when a 12-Liter pot is used.
cooker can function from 1 hour after sunrise until 1 hour before sunset.
Because of its high productivity, it works even with shorter sun rays.
Once the food has been cooked, it continues to simmer in a basket, when wrapped with a blanket.
The focal point of heat for the SK14 is only 28cm wide.
This means that if the maximum amount of energy is desired, the dish
must only be moved every 15-25 minutes to face the new position of the sun.
The heated area is located within the dish, therefore burning and
blinding are easy to avoid. When
the food is to be stirred, the reflector dish is simply rotated over the pot,
so that the pot is in the shade.
