BigGoofyGuy September 16, 2013 10:20 AM I think it is really cool and very green. I can see it being used where there might be a power outage due to a storm and/or power lines being damaged. Being portable, it would be great for camping. Atul Malhotra September 16, 2013 11:54 AM Price price price Thats the key for developing nations ....Gimme it for less than 200 USD, and I will buy 5 ! Jay Finke September 16, 2013 01:53 PM How does a guy clean this, and is the tube made of glass ? looks like it's custom built to cook a snake, a great idea for third world countries. Throw another snake on the barbie mate. moreover September 16, 2013 02:03 PM @ Atul: the company gives away one over for each five purchased and has a plan to work with developing countries.I own a Solar oven (the original Sunoven) but will probably buy this one for backpacking. It also works to easily make water safe to drink. Bruce Crosby September 16, 2013 02:29 PM How about using it to run a Sterling engine and generate electricity? Don Duncan September 16, 2013 06:47 PM I have a Solar Flare: Parabolic Cooking System, cost, $70. It doesn't cook much (a quart) or fast (2-4 hours) or in cloudy weather. It blows away easily and must be anchored, which is a bother. It requires disassembly for mobile use. I wish I had waited for the GoSun Stove and paid the extra $150. thk September 16, 2013 08:14 PM @ Jay,If snake is not on your menu, try a foot long hotdog, salamander (the amphibian) or a baguette. The Skud September 16, 2013 11:25 PM Looks neat, until you get a few kms into the wilderness with no backup gas stove - left it in the pickup - and get a few very cloudy days! "I thought I heard you say this would be fun!!!!" "Yes dear" "No dear" Mzungu_Mkubwa September 17, 2013 10:21 AM At that price it should include a solar-powered rotisserie motor driving the cooking tube (fully sealed off so it will spin - slowly - without spilling...) Then, make it large enough diameter to slide in a pork loin (or a healthy section of Anaconda for Jay Finke above) and it'll roast up juicier than anything! Slap on some barbeque sauce, with pickles & onions on the side, and YUM! :-) Jay Finke September 17, 2013 11:19 AM @ thk - MzunguMkubwa I don't see myself cooking on one of these anytime soon, if ever ! and I enjoy my T-bone's cooked over coals with oak or mesquite. I hear the baby turtles have been plentiful at the beach this year, maybe they would be good on this type of grill, or manatee ?
