slow cooked stew Sun Ovens® are the perfect partner to work with bio mass briquettes on rainy or overcast days. Bio mass briquettes can be burned to begin food preparations on a grill or other open fire. When the food is at least half cooked it can be transferred to a Sun Oven® to complete the process. Even indoors the retained heat of the partially cooked food in the well-insulated Sun Oven® will allow it to be used as a retained heat cooker, often referred to as a Wonder Box.

In addition, the Sun Oven® can be used during the production of bio mass pellets to help the drying process. Just set the pellets in the Sun Oven®, turn one of the door latches inward and set the glass on top leaving a gap between the gasket and the glass to allow moisture to escape.
