Villager Sun Ovens


The VILLAGER SUN OVEN® is designed for large-scale feeding situations that require cooking great volumes of food quickly. Even though it is called an oven, enormous quantities of food can be boiled, steamed or baked at cooking temperatures of 500° F / 260° C with no fuel costs. The world has entered an era of increasingly higher energy costs. These costs are often viewed from an economic perspective, but the toll they take in human and environmental terms, while difficult to measure and often overlooked, are even more devastating. Feeding programs are often forced to choose between buying food or the fuel to cook it. VILLAGER SUN OVENS® were developed to help feed large groups of people without destabilizing the environment or contributing to deforestation.


Each VILLAGER SUN OVEN®, when utilized as a Sun Bakery, can save over 150 tons of wood annually which results in the reduction of 277 tons of CO2 green house gas emissions annually. Preserving forests and reducing the stain on the worlds environment. UNIQUE BUT HIGHLY EFFECTIVE The VILLAGER SUN OVEN® is the only manufactured commercial solar oven in the world. Over 1,200 meals a day can be cooked or hundreds of loaves of bread can be baked powered by the sun. Ovens are growing in popularity and are currently used in more than 40 deforested counties in a variety of applications:

  • School feeding programs
  • Sun-bakeries
  • Community feeding
  • Retreat centers
  • Refugee programs
  • Emergency relief
  • Missions compounds
  • Orphanages
  • Hospitals (Cooks food for staff and patients and sterilizes medical instruments.)

In some cases the same VILLAGER SUN OVEN® can be used to serve a number of purposes. In Haiti orphanages use them to cook food for the children. In addition, they bake bread that they sell to generate income. The children are able to learn a usable job skill of making bread and the orphanage benefits from the additional income and money they save not purchasing cooking fuel.
