Global Sun Oven has announced their newest Special!

IMG_3572Ah, let’s talk business in a moment….

First, we had a great time at the First Annual “Summer Solstice Solar Cooking Celebration” on Saturday, June 20, at the Silver City Art Market.

We had box cookers, like the Global Sun Oven I sell, and a home-made version made by one of the local pioneers of solar cooking – the mother of Susan Berry, who gave me the oven of steel and glass, made sometime last century!  It’s nice to have a bit of local history to share – especially apropos since Susan is the recently-retired director of the Silver City Museum.  Thanks so much, Susan!

SunnyCookerWithPyrexBowlsWe also had home-made parabolic cookers that can be taken camping!  Those were demonstrated by Asher Gelbart, of Green Energy Now, who’s doing great work in a lot of related areas far beyond solar cooking.  You can also find him on YouTube, Linked In, and Google+.  Obviously, I think he’s worth looking into, especially if you’re local.

And thanks to Art Market artist-vender Cedar Smith (pictured above, solar cook and maker of beautiful copper items for the home) for hosting this event at the Market!

Finally, if you‘re a solar cook in the area, or will be by next year, I encourage you to join us on the Summer Solstice (June 20th) at the Art Market in 2016!

(Oh yes, I brought three box cookers and completed two meals in each between 9 am and noon!  That’s the Summer Solstice for you – when the day is not only longest, but the sun shines most directly through the atmosphere, giving us the most powerful “solar gain.”  In 2004, I cooked five meals one after the other in a single oven in a single day – just to see what I could do on the Solstice.  Fun!)

Did you know the first solar oven was designed and used in the 19th Century?  Yes!  Horase de Saussure, a swiss naturalist, cooked fruits in a box that reached 190 degrees Fahrenheit.  (Foods just need 170-180 degrees to actually cook.)

So, Let’s keep on enjoying these benefits that can save us money, environmental destruction, and hot kitchens!

To that end, Global Sun Oven – a wonderful company that puts out a high-quality product and sends them to 127 countries around the world, especially those fighting deforestation – has announced their newest special:

If you buy a Sun Oven now (my usual “lowest price they allow me”:  $294.00 – includes shipping), you have the option to also purchase their “Preparedness Package” (value $99) for just $32.70.

The Preparedness Package includes:

* (my favorite) Stacking Cookpots of black granite-ware enamel on lightweight steel construction, designed to stack safely – with an enamelware lid and a glass lid (for when you want things to brown).
* a set of three dehydrating/baking racks with a roll of parchment paper
* two loaf pans which fit side-by-side neatly inside the oven
* a WAPI – Water Purification Indicator – which allows you to know when your water or other liquid has been pasteurized safely – before it reaches boiling, saving you fuel, time, and possibly uncertainty about safety, should your fuel run out or the sun sets – an important potential survival item
* a CD of 600 recipes, FAQ, videos, and more!

(If you have it delivered to anywhere in New Mexico, I will need to add tax.  If you’re having it shipped out of state, you’ll save that $20-some!  So when you buy your own, think of friends and family out of state.)

I’m also able to take credit cards now via PaypaypalPal – if you visit and we use my handy new card reader – or we’re friends and/or you trust me with your card information.  (Sorry that WordPress no longer supports PayPal buttons.)

Happy Summer Cooking!
