Although it boasts one of the largest solar collecting areas of all solar cookers, it folds down into a compact, easy to carry and store unit. This gives the device incredible versatility. Not only can you cook a roast or bake bread and cakes, you can easily take the oven to the beach or camping with you.
High cooking temperatures that are easy to regulate and a simple, easy to use cooking experience make this the best available solar cooker on the market.
New E-Z Sun Track Indicators: Maximum temperature can be achieved by lining up the indicators included. These ingenious devices make alignment simple for everyone.
The Aussie Edition Sun Oven ® gets around this by having an extendable leg to raise the whole device to face the sun. This eliminates the need for extra reflectors and also reduces the tendency for hot spots in the cooking area which can lead to burned / dry / unevenly cooked food.
In some windy conditions, this elevation may cause instability. To overcome this, the Aussie Edition Sun Oven ® has a wide leg with pegs to drive into the ground if needed. This means the oven can be used in windy conditions, at the beach or on a boat. If the pegs can not be used, anything heavy can be placed on the legs to hold it down in extreme conditions.
What is better than a levelling base? An easy to clean wire base, that folds up to give extra room as a trinket! This new design gives extra room while being used and also if removed.
Carry to the park, beach or to put away after using, but do it easily!

But when it came to construction and actual performance, we found we would have to spend quite a lot of money for materials that would be effective and safe. So much in fact that it simply was not worth the time and effort involved. While we make many things ourselves, a solar cooker that would last, be compact and light and effective was a lot harder to make that we thought!
We looked around the globe for the best one available and quickly discovered the Global Sun Oven ®. Used heavily around the world with raving reviews we soon decided to import them and sell them to others who needed a quality device.
We have been amazed at what the Global Sun Oven ® can do and at how it out performs everything else we try. It looks so simple but in practise it's design is just right.
We have tested the Global Sun Oven ® against most commercially available units and it has won convincingly every time. We still think that there MUST be a way of making a better one - but so far no one has succeeded.
Without naming other brands we have found it:
Is much higher quality
Is much easier to use
Has hotter temperatures
Has more usable cooking space
Is easier to Adjust temperature
Is faster to pack away
Is better insulated
Is more stable
Will last a lot longer
Is much better value
While we know that a range of items are available - we firmly believe that the Global Sun Oven is one of the best, only surpassed by the newly released Aussie Edition Sun Oven ®. You may find another brand cheaper - though many simply don't work very well and are limited in what they can do. Others may work but only last a few years due to poor quality. Still others are very dangerous & require constant attention & alignment. And many make false claims and use potentially toxic / hazardous materials.
Another large draw back with other solar cookers is the actual cooking size - particularly the height. Many have only 15 - 17cm height which severely limits your cooking ability and the pots you can / can't use. The Sun Oven however is easy to use, has a large cooking size and is very high quality. It is also very versatile so can be used for baking and simmering, fruit leathers and roasting!
While the energy conversion principles are the same for many solar cookers, the materials utilised in manufacturing a SUN OVEN® have been carefully researched to include the most efficient materials available. In order to capture the maximum amount of energy, achieve the highest possible temperature, and retain the greatest amount of heat possible while minimising the weight, the materials utilised have been selected based on efficiency and quality.
The GLOBAL SUN OVEN® has been devised to meet up to 70% of the needs of a family of 6 to 8 people in a developing country, entirely with the power of the sun. Even though it is called an oven, food can be boiled, steamed, roasted or baked at cooking temperatures of 360° F / 182° C, making it ideal for cooking the majority of foods in the developing world. This ruggedly built solar appliance weighs only 21 pounds / 9.5 kg and will last more than 20 years.
If you look at the cost of running a gas / electric oven to cook every day, the cost adds up considerably over the years. Before you even look at maintenance, repairs or replacing the gas / electric ovens, the Global Sun Oven ® makes great economic sense. To add to this, we have rising and unreliable service supply and many people on bottled gas pay even more for their cooking energy.
A quick calculation can show that with regular use, a Sun Oven can pay for itself in 3-5 years. This is ONLY taking into consideration the electricity or gas savings. It will pay for itself a lot quicker if you use it for drying foods and baking as well. If you factor in the cost of an oven or a dehydrator you can probably half the time to pay it off. Regular users can in effect save around $2000 over the course of the life of this product…all while gaining the health and taste benefits too!
Of course being prepared for an emergency is another free benefit - as is being able to cook while on the road, camping or picnic-ing! Another by-product of using a Sun Oven is the lowered cooling costs for your home in summer.
While the cost of importing the Sun Oven ® is very high (with Freight, Insurance, Cargo, Importing Fees, Landing Fees, Customs / Quarantine, GST, Storage and Transport), we have invested heavily to bring it into Australia. We believe it is one of the very best solar devices available in the world and represents top value for money.
We do get asked from time to time about a smell that has been reported on some Sun Oven review sites (globally).
We can say we have never had any smell nor any reports from customers who have been nervous about smells due to health conditions - quite the opposite. We would never sell a product that had this issue.
The inner chamber of the genuine Sun Oven® is not plastic and lets of no smell after it's initial treatment (instructions included). Again, this may not be the case with cheaper, inferior or imitation units.
The Sun Oven is not covered for damaged caused by abuse or mis-use. That said, we can help even if you set off a bomb (read: a sealed can of beans) and the glass smashes. All parts are available if needed.
PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to offer support to low quality imitation solar ovens that are being sold by unscrupulous sellers.. Make sure it's a genuine Sun Oven®!
Dual Purpose Levelling Rack
The new levelling rack is wider and easier to maintain and clean and can serve as a trivet when placed on the bottom of the oven box allowing for larger poultry and hams wrapped in oven roasting/turkey bags.
Sun Track indicators (2)
Sun Tack indicator
Focusing of the All American Sun Oven is too easy now...just line up the light spot over the hole inside of the focusing cube (as shown in photo) and you are good to go. By lining up the spot you are assuring that your "right to left tracking" as well as your elevation are spot on and you have a properly focused solar oven.
New T-Levelling leg for more stability
Stakes for securing your oven against wind
Much greater stability. Now one has far less worry that an fully extended levelling leg will make the oven more vulnerable to tipping and spilling.
The stakes are an even greater addition to the overall stability of the new T-leg addition...this makes for a very stable cooker.
If you are cooking on a concrete surface then the T-leg can be stabilised by adding weight such as small sandbags or bricks.
Outside Dimensions: 22" L x 20" W x 12" H
Interior Dimensions: 12" w x 14" L x 11" deep
