A RVer's Review of the Solavore Solar Oven

Sunday, December 25, 2016

If you like being outside and like cooking outside, there`s more to it than just your bbq!

We had the opportunity to review the Solavore Sport Solar Oven.
It was quite easy to use and fun to eat foods cooked by the sun.

We also learnt of many benefits of solar cooking with the Solavore Sport Sun Oven and found many great solar recipe ideas on their site as well!
  1. Fuel-free, planet-friendly: The only fuel ever required is sunshine.
  2. Easy: If you can use a crockpot, you can cook with the Solavore Sport.  No burning. Food is tasty and clean up is a breeze.
  3. Feed a crowd:  With the Sport’s two 3-qt pots you can feed 8-10 people.  Or use one pot for spicy jerk chicken and the other for savory long grain organic brown rice.  Or bake a two-layer carrot cake from scratch (we’ll share our recipe).
  4. Healthy:  Food cooks slowly, no boiling.  No vitamins leached away.  And you’ll notice the taste difference: moist, tender, and intense flavors. CLICK HERE FOR SOLAR COOKING RECIPES
  5. Safe: No fire or smoke. It won’t tip over or blow over.  Curious little hands won’t get burned.
  6. Portable: At just 9 pounds, take it with you. Dinner’s ready before you get your hiking boots off!
  7. Fun: Nobody is stuck in the kitchen.  The Sport - and the sun - do the work.
  8. Be prepared:  The Solavore Sport can pasteurize water and cook dinner in the event of a disaster or emergency.
  9. Proven: We’ve used the same design for over 15 years.  It’s the favorite among solar cooking experts around the world.
  10. Doing good:  When you buy a Sport you help to put out an indoor cooking fire somewhere in the world.  Save trees, make a family healthy.  Now that could be the most important reason of all to buy a Solavore Sport.

Tips for Successful Wintertime Solar Cooking

Skeptical about solar cooking in sub-freezing temps with snow on the ground?  Fret not, with the insulating powers of the Solavore Sport.  Solavore Dave Gillmore shows us how in his winter cooking video, filmed in December in 5ยบ F.  Dinner and dessert without burning a drop of fossil fuel!

Three tips to successful wintertime cooking with your Solavore Sport: 

1.      Use your reflectors.  ‘Tis the season to capture every ray you can.
2.    Get an early start.  This month the sun is at its lowest point all year; don’t wait until after noon to start cooking.
3.    Experiment with using the Sport in its winter angle (Solavore Sport logo down).  The “floor” measures 8” x 18” in this position, so loaf pans work great, as does my 7 ½” x 11 ½” metal casserole from the discount store; squash can simply sit on the floor of the oven, halved and cleaned; root vegetables, roasted garlic, onions - wrap in foil and bake away!
