Chocolate cake! Yum!
Tender pieces of roast cooked at two locations, and cheesy bacon bread (yes BACON!).
Unexpected Mishaps The Sport Solar Oven at our Orem was hit by an excited shopper. The pot lid opened up, and the oven lost heat—not to mention roast juices that splashed all over in the oven. After cleaning up the mess, they still were able to heat the oven back up and finish the job. We’re happy to report that the oven is doing fine. What did we learn from the cook-offs? Here are a few of the lessons we learned:
- Put the Sport Solar Oven on the ground in a place where it won’t get trampled, run over, or bumped!
- Solar ovens actually work! After trying more than 10 different recipes, they all turned out delicious and fully cooked.
- Always have another option to cook your food in case there is no sunlight. Our dutch ovens and charcoal came in handy on the stormy days. As long as you have sunlight, the oven is a perfect source of cooking for a small group.
- The Sport Solar Oven will work in cold temperatures. We experienced below freezing conditions and we still cooked a variety of meats, desserts, and baked rolls.
- Everyone should become familiar with their solar oven and know how to use them before an emergency hits.
- Save on your power bill and have fun at the same time!
