Once food is placed in the Global Sun Oven most of your work is done. You don’t need to stir it or worry about it burning. All you have to do is reposition the GSO from time to time and keep an eye on the sky. This means you can use your cookware in ways you may have never thought of before. When making soups or stews I often turn the lid upside down. This way I can either cook directly on the lid or stack another shallow dish on top of it. If the top layer food cooks faster I just take in out when it’s done and turn the lid right side up for the remaining cooking time. It’s also a good way to heat up bread or anything else you might want to serve warm with your meal.
