Testimonials

We are very excited about our new solar oven! Our next-door neighbor has one, they really turned us on the idea of cooking with the sun. Thanks so much for producing a fine product like this and doing it in America!

— Ron, Logandale, NV

Thank you for your commitment to making the Sun Oven available to consumers. I’ve tried making a few solar cookers myself and have always found that the deal breaker was that black spray paint is pretty nasty toxic stuff. Being able to buy a product made of food grade, non toxic materials is a really awesome thing.

— Charles, Jericho, VT

I love it! Great out on the boat!!!

— Donna, Crestwood, KY

I love using it! Last summer we reduced our electrical use by 10% using the oven.

— Cara, Boulder, CO

Love, love, love it!!!!!!!!!!!! It is so much fun to try new things and find that they perform as promised. We are so happy with our oven. I now plan our meal preparation according to the weather forecast!

— Meribeth, Murray, UT

I have been doing solar for 40+ years, but this is the most advanced technology encountered to date. Compliments for achieving excellence in design, materials and environmentally sound marketing.

— Joe, Jetersville, VA

I love this thing. I use it to make supper 2-3 times/week to save time, $, and fuel. Every meal has been great.

— Chris, Silver Springs, FL

I LOVE my new Sun Oven! All my “non crunchy” friends are even impressed by it. I did the first pre-warm yesterday, but alas, it was cloudy today. I can’t wait to put it into action. My plan is to cook at least 4 meals a week, if not more in it.

Thanks for providing such a quality product to those of us who really want to take advantage of the sun’s power and reduce our footprint on the planet.

I love my new Sun Oven and now my friends want one, too!! The best thing to have when you live in AZ. I think there are at least 4 in our little RV park.

— Lynda, Benson, AZ

We love our Solar Oven. We bought it to use camping at the beach, but instead have been using it two to three days a week in the back yard. Easy to setup and use, no electricity used.. and food tastes great. Consistently hit 325-375, which allows cooking almost anything.

— Steve, Conroe, TX

Excited to get my “own” oven. I have used other family members ovens and had a great time. Thanks!

— Patricia, El Paso, TX

We are looking forward to using the oven, not only to save money on utilities, but we have already thought of experiment we hope to do in cooking.

What I love about this is that, as a Bible believer, I see the sun not as a deity, as pagans do, or as just a ball of fire, as Atheists do. I see the sun as a God given tool of life which we are responsible to use to the maximum to make life better. It is not a green issue- it is bedrock common sense survival. Thanks.

— Stephen, Liberty Hill, TX

Baked a loaf of spelt bread in the morning, then used a dutch oven to do spare ribs and veggies for a couple of hours… marvelous. Thank you for a great product that is really fun to use. And yes, it’s the right thing to do…

— Lancy, Daufuskie Island, SC

Cooked our first meal and it tasted great. We will be using this most of the summer to keep the electric bill down. 
The unit is crafted wonderfully and better than I expected.

— Wane, Punta Gorda, FL

— Kikumi, Palo Alto, CA

We have been very pleased with this purchase.

— Diana, Kingman, AZ

I love it! I’ve only had mine about a week and already cooked a whole chicken, a casserole and homemade cinnamon rolls. They all came out as good or better than my electric oven would have done, of course with no energy use. I am a believer.

What an amazing and delightful experience it is to cook with the sun! I’ve made granola, peanut butter cookies, two batches of bread, and oatmeal muffins. Oh, yes, and red beans. and one afternoon tried brown rice, but the clouds came over, so it couldn’t finish outside.
Am so glad more and more people have the chance to cook this way, all around the world. I show all my visitors the oven. Hopefully some will take the opportunity soon to try one, too.

— Celeste, Aurora, CO

Love it and have recommended it to friends!

— Blair, Great Falls, MT

I have had my Sun Oven for two weeks now. I have baked bread several times, cooked chicken with sliced sweet potatoes, fish, pork chops and other goodies. We dried basil, thyme, chives, and rosemary also. We are impressed and are learning quickly what works and what doesn’t. I’ve over cooked a couple of our meals, but nothing was burned or inedible.

I am also impressed with the work you are doing in other countries to help impoverished nations.

Thanks for a great product.

— Marjorie, Mesa, AZ

This is my second oven – I use it for all my baking.

— Victoria, Chandler, AZ

I enjoy trying some of your receipies but have found that a completely frozen chicken, pork roast or beef roast works great. I take it from the freezer, season the meat, add one tablespoon water, put it in without preheating my sun oven. After an hour and a half, I carefully add any vegetables I like then cook for another hour. Everything is very tender, juicy and delicious. True no hassle cooking. Everyone raves about my food. I have so much fun cooking with my sun oven.

— Harvey

Used it for the first time to make orange cranberry muffins yesterday and it was fantastic! The muffins was tasty, cooked in approximately the same time as my regular oven, but I didn’t have to worry about heating up the inside of my house! Thank you for making such an extraordinary product.

Thank you for the attention to detail in the manufacturing and sturdiness. I’m taking it to an island with no electricity or stores.

Referred by my brother who loves it!

We “prepared” the oven yesterday and cooked bread and cookies in it today. We were thrilled with the outcome. Thank you for a wonderful product!

— Travis, Centerville, UT

We’re really enjoying the oven. We’ve made roasts, stews, chickens and desserts. On hot days we can have a variety of foods without heating up the kitchen. It’s easy to clean and store when not in use. Great product. We’re looking forward to many years with this oven. Thanks.

— Jozseph, Kansas City, MO

Cooked our first chicken in 3 hours and then had to leave the house for another 3 hours. But the chicken was falling off of the bone. The pan was still warm and the chicken was very moist. Thank you Sun Ovens, you have made us believers.

— John, Idaho Falls, ID

I have tried the Sun Oven on beef roasts, wheat cereal and cookies. Everything worked fine. We are very happy with it and are excited to try other items as well.

— Diane, South Jordan, UT

I love my Sun Oven! Food is richer with flavor and cooked evenly throughout. It’s so amazing that I plan to buy several more. One for the main course, one for side dishes, and last but definitely not least … one for desserts. These Sun Ovens are amazing!

— Bob, Gooding, ID

Cooked Italian Sausage with Onions & Peppers the third day after I received the oven. Added a pan of corn the last hour. The meat was browned, tender and so very moist. The onions actually carmelized! A lot of juice too. It was a great meal for my first try. Looking forward to doing my bread next. Thanks so much for such a great item!!

— Terry, Anderson, S.C.

Please continue to manufacture your product in the USA.
It’s the patriot thing to do. We will need more such small companies if the economy gets worse. Thanks for the quality product. Looking forward to sunny days so I can use the SunOven !

— F. Thomas Matica, Vancouver, WA

I love this product! It’s easy to use and keeps my house from heating up when I turn on my oven. Great idea for emergency and daily use

— Cheryl Walker, Belton, TX

I received the oven as a gift for Christmas. It has been great so far. There can be a lot of fog here in the winter, but I have been able to use it a few times already. I can hardly wait for summer now and look forward to cooking many meals in it.

— Aaron Watterson, Stockton, CA

I am loving my sun oven.

— Margaret Brower, Gilbert, AZ

We love the sun oven, used it on New Year’s Day. It was 14 degrees outside and we made chili in it.

— Ryan LeVeque, Klamath Falls, OR

We tried it in our atrium in January afternoon sun at low sun angle(37deg n. latitude, 7000 ft elevation,) – got to 220 deg F in 30 minutes, before we lost the sun! We bake our own bread, so we cant wait to try it

— Wil Porter, Mancos, CO

Our kids are having fun learning how to utilize sunlight! We love the multi-purpose functioning of our Sun Oven!

— Ian McKnight, Sherwood Park, Alberta CANADA

Hello. I am very pleased with the service from your Co. I ordered the Sun Oven 2 days ago and have it in my hands today! Larger than I thought it would be but that is a good thing. If your oven is as good as the sevice provided than I will be very happy. My thoughts go rampant for all the things I can do with this. Thank you for the great service and the way it was packaged. Everything looks great and the quality shows.

— Robert Wethington, Crawfordsville, Indiana

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my SunOven!!

— Christi Cisek, Tucson, AZ

I am VERY excited about this product. Living in central Florida, I think I will get plenty of use.

— Bradley, Rockledge, FL

Sun oven is great Great product…..everything came as promised, in excellent condition. I have already used it to make baked pasta with sausage, and it was good. I use the oven primarily to cook foods that require a lot of boiling, like beans. Dry beans get done within 3-4 hours in the sun oven and that keeps the smells and steam from the beans out of my house. My house stays cool and I don’t have to constantly watch for a pot over boiling. The oven beats a slow cooker for this cause the slow cooker puts out a great deal of heat inside a kitchen. Glad I bought it.

— Ismael A.

Did the vinegar cleanse first and then baked muffins… Delish!

— Andrea

Love the sun oven! Anything that doesn’t require fuel (other than the sun) is awesome in my book! Great for any SHTF situation, power out, camping etc.

— Weescottishboy

This could be a lifesaver. Pretty darn amazing Amazing! I am still trying to master the dehydration method. I have cooked brownies, oatmeal, boiled water and a few more things to start testing and they are worked wonderfully. Everything it comes with, the dehydrating shelves, pots, ect, is an added bonus to get you going almost out of the box. I highly recommend this because of the ease of use and the quality product. I “thought” I could make one, but not like this, do I am glad I bought. This could be a lifesaver…

— Dan

This thing rocks! Wow, this oven is amazing! I cleaned it with vinegar, as unstructured, and immediately baked two loaves of wheat bread in it. Baking time was about 45 minutes. They came out perfectly! The solar oven temperature reached 325 and stayed there consistently for about 4 hours. I went outside every 30 minutes to realign. No biggy. Very easy to do. There was condensation on the inside of the glass during baking, but this didn’t affect the bread or temperature at all. Very happy with the quality of this product. Made to last and it works. Perfect for emergencies or just keeping the house cool while letting the sun do the work!

— KAS

Best Sun Oven EVER!!!!! i absolutely love this sun oven……i have used another brand of sun oven for a few yrs, but recently a friend showed me hers ( she has the all american) and i liked it alot more than the one i had……the oven gets hotter than my old one and that is important…..and it is just an all around better product and much more convenient……wish i lived in a sunny state where i could use it every day….life is so much easier when all you have to do is put your food in the sun oven in the morning and forget about it all day….no fuss- no mess……i just love it so much…..thank you

— Teresa

Works well on so many levels I bought a basic Sun Oven over 25 years ago and am still using it. I got the new one for one of my friends. He loves the oven and tries to use it every weekend since he works long hours during the weekdays. We live in Arizona and by cooking outside, the heat stays outside. The interior of the house stays cooler and the A/C unit doesn’t have to work so hard. The new features which include the thermometer, siting capability, cooking racks, and pans are great.

— Bunni, AZ

Love it! Have used it twice and both were a success! Sorry I waited so long to purchase. Love it!

— Grannyduece

SUPERIOR PRODUCT WE HAVE USED OUR SUN OVEN SEVERAL TIMES NOW. IT IS WELL MADE AND SHOULD LAST A LONG TIME. WE HAVE MADE BREAD AND COOKED BEANS IN IT SO FAR WITH GREAT RESULTS. WE ARE VERY SATISFIED WITH OUR OVEN AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WANTING TO COOK OUTDOORS WITH SUNLIGHT.

— garysalazar421

AMAZING This oven is amazing. The first day I cooked crescent rolls then a cake and finally a beef stew with carrots, onions and potatoes. Next day I did a roast chicken with white rice. Next a pot roast with mashed potatoes and an apple cobbler. Honestly the food really is better tasting than from a regular oven or stove top. I guess its because it cooks more concentrated in its own juices. I dont know. Ive invited most of my family over to try everything and got all compliments. The oven is super easy to use, to set up and to put away.Thanks for a wonderful product.

— Florence

Love it with HOT days I can still Love it with HOT days I can still bake

— Daune

Great product Well made oven. After seeing so many cardboard boxes and tin-foil on the internet, I was a bit fearful it would be cheaply constructed. However, I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Looks like it will last for years. THANXX to all the staff/workers for making a great product in the U.S.A.

— andreadelany424

Lots of fun and works great Have cooked rolls, fish, pork ribs, omelets, also reheated pot pie on a paper plate. Lots of fun and works great.

— Edward P.

The cooking pans and dehydrating racks are a perfect match for the Sun Oven. The All American Sun Oven is amazing. It cooks a whole chicken in just over the same amount of time your kitchen oven would. My wife loves cooking two dozen eggs for Easter egg painting in very short order. If the power goes down and you have sunlight, you will not regret buying this high quality unit. The cooking pans and dehydrating racks are a perfect match for the Sun Oven.

— Jerry N.

Perfect dinner tonight!!! I just got my sun oven a couple of days ago. Yesterday I baked brownies in it, which turned out great. Today I decided that I was going to try dinner in it. I got some chicken thighs out of the freezer and let them sit in cold water until they were thawed enough for me to loosen the skin. I found a recipe on the Sun Oven’s website for a mixture of herbs and olive oil that was put under the skin. The chicken pieces were still mostly frozen at this point. I also got all the accessories that were offered with the oven, which included two enameled, stackable pots. In the bottom pot I decided to just try some regular white rice. After sitting it out in the sun for about 4 hours I started to smell the faint smell of chicken so thought I’d check on it. I had no idea if it would be done yet, since it was so frozen when I put it out there. I was amazed at the amount of juice bubbling around the chicken pieces, and the tops of the pieces that weren’t completely covered in the juice were actually browned on the top! Only one tablespoon of olive oil was used to mix with the herbs, so I was pretty surprised to see all the juice in the pan. Checking the rice I discovered I had made perfect sticky rice! The chicken turned out flavorful and moist, and was just perfect, and the best part of the whole thing is that it was all done without making my house as hot as an oven, and cooked while I spent time with my family. Now I can enjoy a good dinner with everyone and the only other thing I have to make is a veggie to go with it. Next time I’ll put some in to cook with the rice, AND I’ll have minimal cleanup too, just the two small pots that came with the oven. I’m really excited to try out some of the recipes that came on the disc with this thing. It was SUPER simple to set up, very easy to position to make sure you get maximum exposure to the sun and a real pleasure to use, knowing that it’s not costing me anything to make dinner. I think the thing I like the best is the time and work it saved. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn’t live where it’s cloudy all the time. Oh, today the temperature inside the oven reached 300 degrees (F).

— Jonathan

amazing oven This oven is amazing. Easy to set up and use. I have done three dinners in it, and it performed as advertised. Brisket is probably my least favorite meat, so I experimented with it first, I didn’t care if it turned out or not. It turned out so wonderful, even my husband who is from Texas said it was the best he ever tasted. It was done perfectly, tender and juicy, and the fat content was down as in the 6 hours I cooked it, it had been reduced to a minimum. I then did a casserole, then chicken and baked potatoes. I made some timing errors, but that was my fault, not the ovens. There is a learning curve, because it is different from a regular oven you can regulate, but a stick under the glass helps to reduce the heat if needed. I’m very happy with it.

— Peg M

excellent results I’ve had mine for years and have cooked everything from bread to zucchini lasagne in it with excellent results. I’ve used it with snow on the ground in UT, blazing heat of AZ, and most weather in between.

— GC

I LOVE IT! I purchased my sun oven on sale. I LOVE IT!! The product is sound and works as well as I was promised it would.

— Cynthia

It is easily and quickly set up I have used this Sun Oven several times. It is easily and quickly set up. I use a cord attached to the back to keep it from blowing over if there is a breeze, and set it up on a weighted table. It heats up well, and the thermometer is easy to read. I have cooked breads, chicken, eggs, rice, and vegetable casseroles in it. Everything turns out right.

— Raye

I’m in love with the All American Sun Oven Prepared my oven for cooking by the oven instructions. Tried a pretzel brownie mix as my first test. It was sunny when I started the process, but 10 min into cooking time, cloud cover came over and temperature dropped to 200 degrees F. I just left it alone and when the cloud cover moved, the oven quickly went to 320 degrees F. Took a bit longer to cook the brownies, but who cares, the power is free! The brownies were perfectly done and delicious. Bread baking is next. I put my oven on a glass table on our deck, aimed it south and just had to adjust it one time by turning slightly for maximum sun exposure. Absolutely love this oven. I can see already that it will be my primary oven for the hot summer months in the south since I don’t want the house to heat up on the inside. I believe it is best to buy this complete set because the pot and pan sizes are perfect.

— J. McGlynn

I like my All American Sun Oven A LOT!!! Features I Like: 1)The Size! This thing is huge which is a good thing. My older previous Solar Oven (SunDiner) I owned was small and was limiting as to what could be cooked in it. 2) The Leveling Rack! Yes – very innovative! Tilt the Sun Oven all the way up in its lowest notch on a mid winter day and everything stays nice and level – cakes, cornbread, liqu ids, soups, stews etc. I was not able to cook these foods in my previous Solar Oven. 3) Sturdy Construction – Takes a beating and keeps on Heating! : ) 4) The alignment indicators – makes lining it up with the sun a breeze! 5) The large reflectors! Cooks pretty well on overcast days even! I highly recommend this All American Sun Oven to anyone that is interested in Solar Cooking – it works!

— Charlie Gokey

We really enjoy this oven. I set it up mid-day and usually cook a chicken. It comes out perfectly. I used it to dry sliced apples and then froze them. It took about 2-3 hours. In our desert area it usually gets up to about 300-350 degrees. I follow the directions and rotate the oven slightly to get the best of the sun.

— Gary

Love my Sun Oven… We seldom run out of sun in the Las Vegas area so there are lots of available trial cooking attempts…. While I use the recipes from online I do try and come up with a few to satisfy our zesty appetites… nothing bad so far…

— Chuck

We have had a sun oven for many years and use it almost all the time , all season long, so great in the summer months, no hot kitchen to make beans, squash, and we cook all our grains too. Now we have two of them and it is quite often both of them are going at the same time. Food cooked in the sun oven tastes better. Perhaps the most incredible thing I have discovered is making sun oven Chaga. It needs to be cooked all day in a crock in the sun oven, with a plate to keep out the light. It comes out dark as espresso, but much healthier. Powerful stuff! I cook dun oven beans in a crock too, and put big pieces of kelp in with them, under so it stays down. It comes out soft and tender. so yummy! Only way to get it so good is this way.

— Carol

Great Product. When it gets to hot in the kitchen, or I want to slow pressure cook – then I use the solar oven. Fish, tri-tip, chicken, vegetables, ribs, bread. Everything comes out great. Moist and tasty.

— Michael, So-CA

We love our Sun Ovens. We have two so we can bake enough for the whole family at Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Everything always comes out great. Baked potatoes are so light and fluffy and yet still moist. Also like to use them in the summer to avoid heating up the house. We love the home made sour dough bread we bake. Comes out with a crispy crust and moist crumb. We use them way more than we use the oven in the house. A really great product. As we live in Arizona we have a large number of days where the sun shines so solar cooking is perfect for us.

— Dennis

I rate my Sun Oven bought in late 2009 tops for baking potatoes and cooking rice. I have never had better baked potatoes. I live in Bangkok, Thailand, and most of the year it works wonderfully. The monsoon season, generally May to September, is a little more problematic, but even then I can often cooked rice in the oven before clouds cool it. Often I have baked brownies and sometimes cookies in the Sun Oven and they come out very well, although I have to be careful the clouds don’t become overcast.

— Michael

I have used my Sun Oven almost daily since I purchased it several years ago. I love how it cooks grains and vegetables to succulent deliciousness with little effort. It is really my preferred way to cook, and I’m sure I haven’t begun to exhaust the creative possibilities for using it.

— Ben

I’ve had my Sun Oven for several years. I used it like a crock pot a lot, but now I’m learning how to bake and make other items in it. I love it

— Debbie

Nice set up, easy to use. I have only used it about 4 times. As I bought it for emergency prep. I have cooked eggs in their shell in a cardboard carton, they turned out fine. Just be very careful when you open and try to take stuff out=hot.

— Amanda

I use mine all the time. The Az summer is suited to outdoor baking. I even made brownies one day.

— Janeen

I love it. I have the older model, and use it when ever possible , on the road, in the woods, and desert. I love it.

— Marty

Saving the planet one solar cooked meal at a time I really enjoy my Sun Oven! It cooks meats so they are tender and juicy. I have found many recipes on-line for delicious meals. While it is not as easy as fill it and forget as a slow cooker is, (you do have to adjust its orientation to the sun!) it is relatively simple and easy to use. I am completely pleased with the quality and versatility of the product!

— Lynn

Great Product This was purchased for emergency in electrical outage. We cooked chicken, potatoes and carrots. Tasted Great! Took about 4 hours on a very sunny day.

— Celia

Use the Sun Oven whenever I can. Enjoy all types of food I’ve cooked with it. I’m still perplexed that most people haven’t heard about cooking with the sun? Even up here in Northern Ontario (Canada) I’m cooking full roast/potato/carrot meals in the winter months. I have several sun cookers and use them at home and at my off grid cabin. Amazing product, keep up the good work!!!

— GPS Instructor

Durable, versatile and heats rapidly in the sun. Very well made and works well providing there is sunlight. While its larger than some new options, one needs all that room to cook meat, side dish, vegetable and coffee/tea water all at once. I just cooked cinnamon rolls and hot coffee while anchored out on a boat over nite. It warmed up polish sausage and sauer kraut and dinner rolls last nite. It does take up a lot of room on a boat, though. I put it in the overhead bed in a van camper. Handy in that most of the needed accessories fit inside and you can use it as a cooler for food and drinks. Basically, one needs to be organized and maybe take some shortcuts if in a hurry, e.g. I just warm up pre-cooked bacon since I’m too hungry in the morning to wait. Btw, it’ll cook pancakes from those instant mix Bisquick bottles. I bought a cheap frying pan and unscrewed the handle to get a baking dish with sides on it. The pans that come with it heat rapidly and seem almost non-stick of wiped off quickly. The case is remarkably durable and tough. I’ve had it rolling around in the bottom of a cabin cruiser. It’s probably best used on land or on a large houseboat…

— Jay

Excellent product. I have two and I cook year round with them. I’ve probably already got my money back for one of them by saving on air conditioning and electric stove savings. I love this product and recommend it highly. I am a DIY type of guy, but I could not build one as good as this.

— Ron

We purchased our SunOven for emergency use since we live on the end of miles of rural electric. But we sure wanted to try it out before the emergency, What great Baked Chickens this Oven does. Our neighbor bakes a lot of bread so wanted to try out the SunOven. It bakes bread just like her gas oven.

— Phil-Patsy

Excellent product I bought this for use when storms knock out power for extended periods of time. I used this a few times to cook beans and stew and it works great. I am very impressed with the quality and how fast it gets hot. Even on a moderately cloudy day, this unit will heat up enough to cook. It is very compact and extremely easy to use. I set it up and use the alignment holes to get it positioned nearly perfect and then just walk away. Even with the sun position changing, the initial set up worked well enough where I didn’t have to move the unit but once in a 6 hr period. I really like having this as a back up. It quickly gets up to the high 300’s and cooks just as fast as an oven when the sun is optimal.

— Joseph

Very nice solar cooker Works well, food tastes great, no odor or funny taste – not sure what the other reviewer is talking about. I have used my Sun Oven for a few years now and primarily make entrees, although I have baked a dessert in it as well. I live in Ohio and I am still able to use it during the hot and sunny weather. Excellent choice for those people who want to conserve electricity, live off the grid or “prep”.

— Wendy

Returning to a simpler way of living. Quality workmanship and materials. Am VERY impressed with the unit. Still leaning and experimenting and look forward to more fun and savings.

— Judi

Love my sun oven use it for all sorts of cooking, had it for 5 years so it well tested . It does the best pork roast slow cooked with a apricot sauce over it ,plus you can use it to dehydrate any spare veg for use in the winter months

— Peter J.

Have 2 they are great. Ease of use and the quality of product is commendable. Highly recommended to anyone.

— Kris

Terrific sun oven and accessory items Fantastic item that works great! Simple to setup and use; thank you SO much for this terrific technology.

— Amy

I’m so happy to finally have my SUN OVEN, and am looking forward to having an acquaintance-who has been using hers for some time-come to give tips to me and my married children and their spouses.THANK YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL TOOL !

— Nathanael

Love my All American Sun Oven I use it often. I’ve made quick breads, yeast breads, biscuits and all turned out great. I make rice in it, serve a third and freeze the rest for later. Hubby built me a table from wood scraps with a sort of lazy Susan so I can easily turn the oven. I feel so smug when I don’t have to use electricity or gas for cooking.

— Prickly Pear “Desert gardener”

Perfect backyard oven This oven is perfect: thoughtfully designed, robust, easy to use, and it works exactly as advertised.

— Susan S.

I’ve had my Sun Oven for 5 years now and use it fairly regularly on my boat at the sandbar in the Tampa Bay Area on the weekends & holidays. It has been so effective and so well liked, I bought the new/improved All American Sun Oven for my girlfriend. She is amazed every time we use it how effective it is and how great the food tastes. I always tell her, “Photon’s are better than Electron’s” for cooking…. Now we use her’s around the house and mine on the boat. It’s truly a great product and works very well!

— Larry B.

Excellent Oven. Considering function it is worth the price. Cooks easily as well as conventional oven, and just as fast on a clear sunny day even in extreme temperatures. We cooked several meals in at 350F on clear days and our food was done as fast and in some cases even faster than when we used a conventional oven. We cooked 2 frozen Chicken Breasts, 2 Sweet Potatoes, carrots, and broccoli on our first meal. All of it cooked perfectly. The sweet potatoes were the best that I’ve ever had! 2nd day we cooked a Pot Roast. Excellent texture and flavor. Again no burning and cooked efficiently. 3rd day we cooked homemade Baked Beans and they cooked completely in 3.5 hours instead of the usual 5-6 hours on the stove. I’d purchase it again. As far as the seller, the product was delivered on time and there were no unexpected issues. Excellent transaction and a satisfied customer!

— Cooper A.

Five Stars Highly recommend this Sun Oven, for camping or at home.

— Ruth

I bought the Sun Oven for Off-The-Grid Living! I got my sun oven a little over a week ago and I just love it! So far I have made a berry cobbler, brownies, beef stew, “boiled” eggs and tea. The cobbler was my first attempt at cooking and it turned out great! It browned around the edges, which surprised me, but I guess it browned because of the sugar in the recipe. The brownies turned out equally as good, which is great because I usually burn brownies in a regular oven! :) On the day I cooked the beef stew, clouds started getting in the way after about 3 hours of cooking. The stew was pretty much done, but I opted to finish it off on the regular stove. The “boiled” eggs were an experiment that was so cool! I put some eggs (still in their paper carton) in the oven for 1-1/2 hours and amazingly the eggs were “boiled” to perfection! Then I put some water in one of the granite ware pans with some tea bags and left it in the oven for about an hour. This was the best “sun” tea I have ever had! I am so glad I have my sun oven now. My husband and I live off-the-grid and I was looking for an alternative way to cook food in the summer so I wouldn’t heat up the house, and this Sun Oven fits the bill perfectly! The Sun Oven is better than I had hoped for!

— Ginger

Five Stars very helpful for people in need on way to Africa. Thanks for all the support and quality service you have provided from start to finish.

— Titi W.

During Hurricane Irma, I used my All American Sun Oven, multiple times. My family was amazed with the wonderful meals we had while the hurricane knocked out our power for almost 2 weeks. I bought my oven a year ago . I am elated at its engineering every time I use it to cook. The meats come out tender, pasta dishes are perfect and my breads are moist. I LOVE IT!!

— Jill T

Love this oven. Already used it & the food was awesome. The banana bread we baked was to die for & much better than the regular oven baked. So much more moisture!

— Teresa N

Great oven One excellent product! The first time we tried this oven there was snow covering the entire ground and it still reached 325 degrees within about twenty minutes. Baking bread was our first thing to try and it turned out perfect. We absolutely love this oven. It seems to be very well made and easy to align to get the maximum use of the sun. It is fun to use and very energy efficient.

— Gary H

I absolutely LOVE this oven. It goes beyond being an oven and does everything well. I waited a long time to be able to purchase it and it is well worth it.

— Susan F

Can’t believe how much fun I’m having cooking quinoa etc. in this! I thought that living in the northern Midwest would be an issue, but it’s not.

— Kat

Today I cooked Thai organic 3 rice combo, using chicken bone broth for the liquid. It was so tasty I had to share it with my neighbors! Tomorrow I am cooking sweet potatoes and green beans. I am hoping to bake some sweet potato oatmeal cookies after that. I am sure the Sun Oven will keep me busy. It’s exciting using free energy from the sun!

— Mark W

I have used my oven and it is so wonderful…we love using it, the most problem is I forget to use it sometimes. I love to go over and smell what is cooking in the oven when I get home from work!!! It always smells wonderful! Cooks great! I have so much more to cook in it. We have taken it with us for a day at the beach and had a great meal in the evening!!

— Tracy H

Works Great! Have used this for about 6 months and it works great. We normally just cook easy (read: lazy) stuff in it like rice, beans, and lentils, but it does the job with little fuss. We rotate it with the sun and that keeps it pretty consistently hot.

— Amy

I absolutely love this oven and all the conversations it starts with curious neighbors. It cooks great! I use it all the time with the south Texas sun. I have made beans, cakes, cookies, grains, seafood, roasted veggies. Everything comes out perfectly!!!

— Kevin

I got the Sun Oven a few days ago and I am having soooooo much fun! So far I have baked blackberry cobbler, beef stew, “boiled” eggs and brownies. I also heated water with some tea bags in it for a jug of iced tea. Tomorrow (weather permitting) I plan to try a pork roast that I will shred, cook a bit longer with BBQ sauce, and make sloppy joes!

I am a blogger, so I can’t wait to blog about my Sun Oven! I’m taking lots of pictures for the post. My husband and I are building an “off-the-grid” homestead from scratch (we start building our home next spring), and the Sun Oven fits perfectly into the sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle we are striving for.

— Vickie

Great product, just as expected. The quality of the oven is beyond our expectation and we were very happy with it. I highly recommend them.

— Chester W.

We purchased our sun oven for emergency needs. We decided we should actually make meals to have some level of experience with this item. We’ve made several chicken meals to be amazingly surprised at how much better the food tastes. Though the claims were supporting this we didn’t put much expectation in it. We were blown away! Next, we tried making bread. Hands down the best bread you will ever have. Our kids love to participate and talk about it at school that we cooked meals in a solar oven. :-)

— Tom P.

I went to a solar fair about 6 years ago and spent the day testing solar ovens. Hands down the sun oven surpassed all the others. Since then Sanzuma our nonprofit has been buying them and donating them to women and families in need. We focus on Central America and Mexico. We also use them to teach alternative energy to low-income families in California.

— Lori D.

IT IS FUN AND SATISFYING TO COOK WITH THE SUN AND CONSERVE RESOURCES. THE FOOD HAS A UNIQUE FLAVOR AND IS DELICIOUS.

— Don S.

I love my sun oven. I dehydrate meat in it all the time for my dog’s treat. Saves me lots of electricity not having to turn my dehydrator on for 12 hours.

— Elise L.

I love my sun oven, it’s a great convenience. I consider the cost a wonderful investment. I even have the stack-able pans and drying racks for it and love them just as much as the oven its self.

— Elizabeth S.

The best dehydrator I’ve used.

— Sarah

I am very pleased with every interaction that I have had with Sun Ovens. Great products, exceptional staff, exceptional customer service, and a mission that I support.

— Cindy T.

I love my Sun Oven. I’ve baked with it as well as made many meals that turned out wonderfully.

— Irene

I love cooking in my sun oven. I am definitely satisfied with the product and the service provided to me. If you want the best cooking experience, don’t think twice. Purchase an oven from here!

— Chara V.

Easy to use, easy cleanup, compact to store, put meat in, come back hours later and ready to eat and cooked just right. All in all totally painless, convenient, flawless cooking!

— Mary J.

I love my SunOven!! I’ve used it to roast meats, bake casseroles, and simmer soups. I’ve also baked beer bread in my SunOven. It has done an excellent job with these items, and the flavor of the meals has been excellent. SunOven’s website is easy to navigate and provides many useful tips and recipes for solar cooking using the SunOven, and it covers other disaster preparedness information as well. Customer service is excellent–Mr. Munsen provides excellent and informative videos and webinars for the product. Shipping was very speedy. Some may consider the SunOven to be a tad pricey, but this is a quality product designed to reach and maintain normal baking/cooking temperatures with proper alignment by the user to keep the most direct solar rays, or with less attention, it can be used similarly to a slow-cooker. With proper care, this SunOven should last a lifetime. The versatile SunOven can be used to dry out wood for campfires, to purify water, to heat water for cleaning, dehydrating fruits and vegetables, making jerky, and oh yeah, for cooking, too! I highly recommend this product!

— Jenny S.

I have used the sun oven a couple of times. I like the fact that it is easy to set up, easy to use, and, the food comes out amazing–just using the sun! I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to live a greener life and save money on utilities.

— Sara P.

I have a friend that’s had a Sun Oven for years. He uses it when he travels to Mexico and bakes several times a week with it. His experience with your oven is what made me want to get my own. I live in Arizona and it works amazingly well here, though I bought it for the sole purpose of taking it on my own travels. When I ordered it, it came in a markedly short time and it always amazes people when they see it in use. Great product. Keep up the good work and thanks.

— Cyd V.

I love the security of knowing I have another way to cook if the power goes out. Using the oven has been easier than I thought it would be. It is easy to store and easy to clean. It is not my only backup, but it is one I know I can use. It is fun to try new things and get better at using the Sun Oven.

— Sherri B.

It is a great product. There are so many ways to use it and about an endless amount of foods you can cook with it.

— Laura

I carry the sun-oven with me in my jeep & use it for cooking and cleaning water as well as for dehydrating foods. It is so easy to use & store – love it! No fuel required, just the energizing sun.

— Carl P.

I have had it for 1 yr and have not explored all its uses, but I have used the Sun Oven primarily to cook foods that heat up a kitchen during the summer and autumn. I particularly liked cooking a variety of beans, all at once, in separate little pots for seasoned black beans (used as an ingredient in Latin foods), barbecue white beans to serve with grilled meats, and soupy, spicy, pinto bean soup. I would cook once a week in it and be done with the one ingredient that heats up my kitchen. I also used the oven for pasta dishes that required baking.

— Sylvia A.

I love being able to put a roast in the oven and go off for the morning knowing that nothing will burn and I will come home to a delicious meal. I am going to try it as a dehydrator next. I am also going to do the baked potatoes in it the next time I have the whole family over. I like the large capacity and the ease of set up, cooking and cleanup.

— Sandi H.

The sun oven is a life saver in the summertime, but useful year round. I can’t bring myself to turn on the oven in the summer so I use the sun oven to bake bread and cook dinner frequently. I have taken it to the lake on vacation to bake brownies and cook meals. It works great for heating water to wash with as well. Great investment.

— Ann S.

Living in AZ brings a lot of sun and the Sun oven is fantastic. Nothing has come out bad. Great pot roast, bread is as good as in the regular oven. Love no heat in the house when cooking with the Sun oven.

— Tim S.

I am on a Homesteading Group site and there are a few people that have been sharing what they are doing….from cooking eggs to soups to breads, etc. I think utilizing the sun to do a multitude of things is a very frugal and wise decision!

— Barbara D.

I bought the Sun Oven on the recommendation of friends who had knowledge and experience with solar ovens. They told me this was the best one. I love my Sun Oven! It makes really good chicken, both whole chicken, and cut turn out really tender and juicy. I have baked squashes in it and made frittatas, as well as scrambled eggs with veggies.

— Margaret W.

I was so HAPPY with the webinar and the good info that you gave to me!!! I am so glad to have another way to cook and bake when there is no power!!! Your website gives so much help when a question pops up. I LOVE that it is MADE IN AMERICA!!!!! I can honestly say that I am surprised that it is easy to use.

— LaRene G.

Outstanding product and outstanding people. It is easy for a product to be viewed as outstanding if there is never a problem with it, but if you have a problem you then can evaluate the company from the service standpoint. My Sun Oven has been wonderful, but when I had a problem with the glass handle. the fix was immediate. Now I know how good the people behind the product are. Thank you!

— Gene L.

Love it, love it, love it! Super simple to use and set up. NOTHING ever burns (except me when I forgot the hot pad!) and nothing I have tried has failed. I’m encouraging all our family and friends to get one!

— Susan C.

This oven is great for all types of situations, power outages, Camping, don’t want to heat the house up, or even Emergency Preparedness. I wanted a solar oven that could do everything that I could do with my oven or stove. I had heard about solar ovens that can do almost everything but bake bread and other things. My thought where if I am in a situation where Bread is my main staple then I want something that can bake bread and bake it well. Yes this oven is more expensive than others. The age old saying of you get what you pay for remains true in this situation as well. This thing is built like a tank and very sturdy. I have cooked almost everything in this oven and all of it has turned out great, even bread. I love being able to put a whole chicken or roast in the Sun oven in the morning and come home to a cooked meal that was done without any electricity at all. The one thing I have not tried yet is cookies but that is on my list to do this month. You will not be sorry you made the investment in this solar oven.

— Brandon J.

We love our Sun Oven. The attention to details in the design is noticeable each time we use it. It’s fun to use and food always seems to come out tasty. Highly recommended.

— Michael H.

The sun oven is a great addition to my kitchen. It is easy to use and the food is delicious! I have learned how to multi-task with the oven for a great meal. I am pleased with the size/capacity and have made everything from Dutch oven cobblers to beef stew to orange cakes to rice. The other day I used it to heat up ravioli. We love using the sun to cook our foods and it eliminates the heat inside the home as well.

— Joe S.

Great product and company! The oven is relatively lightweight, easy to clean. It’s been fun experimenting with dinners, and I’m going to bring the oven to work soon when peaches are at their peak, to make a peach crisp for my coworkers. Would recommend the Sun Oven to anyone!

— LB

The Sun oven is an outstanding and fairly rugged equipment. I started by baking bread in it and I have to admit it, using the Sun oven has improved the quality/taste to the point that it is preferred by Grandkids, even over their store-bought white bread. They’ll even eat the crust! The newsletter, Every Needful Thing is an excellent resource, particularly when trying new recipes. My number one recommendation to those who purchased the Sun Oven is . . . use it, experiment with it. It looks good just sitting there, but it gets better with experience and every use.

— Gary G.

I give it five stars because it works just as it should. I have cooked almost every dinner for weeks with it. And have baked many types of bread with it. It’s hot here in central CA and we get lots of sun. My favorite thing besides no fuel is my house isn’t being heated up from baking or cooking dinner. Meaning good food all year with no worries and its portable!

— Steven J.

Very well built oven. Lightweight and easy to use immediately. The website also has tons of invaluable information, as well as recipes. I love my Sun Oven!

— Robin F.

I am absolutely thrilled with the Sun oven! I love baking bread with no electricity. I’ve cooked granola, cookies, pinto beans, rice and lentils, barley, vegetables and full loaves of bread in it and been so pleased and amazed with the results. What a great invention. I show everyone who comes to the house. I’ve heated water for coffee. I bought it as an emergency preparedness measure, but my husband liked the energy conservation aspect even more. I enjoy using it, and find adjusting its angle easy to include in my daily activities. Every time I use it, which is most sunny days, I think about how clever the inventor is, and what a blessing it must be to people in third world countries

— Marianne M.

I never thought the oven would really work, but I was hopeful. The oven is fabulous. The first item I made was brownies. They were perfectly moist. Just test the baking item as you would in a conventional oven. Wear mitts! I learned that the hard way. At first, the oven was not getting up to 350. I tightened the screws on the glass cover and it worked like a charm.

— Rose S.

I am totally happy with the design & workmanship of the Sun Oven itself. Also loved all the accessories that came with the kit.

— Kimberly P.

Great Oven. This is my 3rd one. Love them all. The quality of the products provided by Sun Ovens International Inc is definitely superb overall. I have no negative experience whatsoever.

— John C.

We love this oven so much my kids are getting one for Christmas. They are simple to use and my husband even cooked dinner in for it tonight!

— Sherri L.

Especially during the summer, I use the sun oven almost daily. I can cook anything in it. We have cooked bread, corn bread, beans, stews, chicken and roast. My husbands favorite is beef jerky! Saves a lot on energy cost!

— Mary L

Last Sunday we put a 99cent per pound pork roast in our sun oven with just salt and pepper and cooked it all day without adding any water. It was delicious smothered with BBQ sauce on buns. Moving the oven with the sun as instructed was easy. We are delighted with the All American Sun Oven. Clean up is a snap. We are looking forward to using all summer. Very glad we made the purchase. We also are happy that there is no fire hazard when cooking with the sun.

— Belinda and Pete C.

Cooking with the Sun Oven is great. It is amazing what can be cooked just using the sun. Great for emergency situations, also.

— James C

The product is wonderful. I have been able to bake a number of items along with boiling some eggs. I was also able to melt my beeswax to strain it for future uses. I want to try a casserole next.

— Yolanda

I absolutely LOVE my Sun Oven! I have used it for beans, a pot roast, and several other meals and I can tell you that it cooks wonderfully! The beans were delicious and the pot roast was fall-apart tender. I’ve had several neighbors ask about it, as well. Yep, I’m completely satisfied and am quick to tell anyone who asks what a great product it is.

— June

Excellent product! Easy to work with. Plus I have four Sun Ovens! Thank you.

— ROBERT B

If I was able…I would purchase a Sun Oven for all of my friends and family. We absolutely love ours and cook so many recipes with it. Breads, hard boiled eggs, stews, soups, cookies. Love love love it!

— Kevin C

This oven is very efficient, bought during the spring and used throughout summer, fall, and winter. Creates a tender juicy meal at no cost to you. I recommend to everyone who wants to save money and create great meals.

— dave

When my hubby asked me what I wanted for our 40th wedding anniversary, he probably thought I’d say jewelry. I asked for a Sun Oven, after using a homemade oven for years. This is such an improvement! It is everything I’d hoped for and more.

— Laurel L

Please give the Sun Oven a try!!! It’s life changing, really It changes the way you look at food preparation and cooking. I totally love my Sun Oven!!! It’s amazing!!! I’ve been cooking nearly every day that it is sunny in it, preparing all sorts of dishes. We’ve enjoyed them all. There’s something that is different and better about food that is cooked by the sun’s rays instead of by fossil fuels. Think about it…can fossil fuel energy create photosynthesis? The sun’s rays help to bring life.

— Candy L

I have been amazed at what I can cook using the Sun Oven! It is simple and pretty well mistake proof. I have shared it with several of my friends, and they have been surprised by what you can do when you harness just a little bit of free power from the sun!!

— Rick A

We love our Sun Oven and use it once or twice a week. We bake bread weekly and have had excellent results. Paul’s training videos and podcasts are worth listening to, as there is so much this oven can do.

— Ken L

I love my All American Sun Oven – it really does all the things it is advertised to do! Living in Southern California where there is ample sunshine and cloudless days I have used my oven to cook various types of beans, steel cut oats, banana bread, corn bread and full meals. Taking completely frozen chicken breasts and placing them in a pot with brown and wild rice, seasonings and water and having this fully cooked in just a few hours is amazing. It is absolutely true that nothing burns in the sun oven and it can be used on very cold days with the same effectiveness as hot days. It is really all about the sun. This little oven never ceases to amaze me and it has made cooking fun again.

— Ellen C

Outstanding product, very well engeneered! This is my second Sun Oven and while my first oven is still in operation the improvements you have made in your new ovens, like a more stable support leg and a simple way for solar aliment, makes operation effortless. While their not inexpensive, there worth every dollar. Good job folks!

— Russ E

Buying your first Sun Oven is the beginning of a new cooking adventure! I’ve had a great time experimenting with different recipes and tweaking them to work with this solar cooker. The Sun Oven is well built, I’ll be using it for years to come to make delicious food without using electricity or gas. One thing I love about my Sun Oven is that it doesn’t heat my house up like a traditional oven. I live in a climate similar to Las Vegas so during the summer time it’s important to keep as much of that nasty heat outside as possible. One tip I’ve found is to make sure you use dark colored pots and pans. I once tried a recipe using a clear Pyrex container and the water in the bottom never boiled like it was supposed to, even after 2 hours in good sun. I tried the same recipe the next day with a dark pot, and my water was happily boiling away in about 25 minutes. If you’re on the fence about buying this, I’d say go for it! You too can begin your next cooking adventure, and the best part is you can still cook brownies for your neighbors if the power goes out :)

— Karston

Love, love, love my sun over! Would highly recommend! I use it most days and have cooked dinners, bread, cookies, vegetables, whole squash, sun tea. Anything you can think of and then some. I have barely used my stove this summer. Cannot wait for winter to see what it will be like to use when it is cold and sunny. Highly recommend!

— Debbie N

What a wonderful way to to use the sun and save on fuel! It only took a little practice to use the Sun Oven and we are really enjoying this way of cooking. Initially thought that in NW Maine we wouldn’t have enough sun for the oven to work. Wrong!!. The Sun Oven performs great. We would highly recommend this product to everyone. In fact we were so impressed we purchased a second oven

— Rhona B

I’m very glad I purchased one of your Sun Ovens. It’s easy to use, easy to clean and easy to move around. I like easy, lol. The information that came with it was very helpful and right from the first use of the Sun Oven (cleaning/steaming in the sun for initial cleaning) gave a chance to get the hang of using this before we tried a simple recipe. I’d recommend to anyone who is afraid that using the Sun Oven will be too complicated, to go ahead and buy one. It’s easier than you think and super easy to keep clean. :)

— Renee

I love how simple, yet well made, this oven is. You can tell someone has thought this out! People rave about my beans having a fantastic flavor that doesn’t seem duplicated with any other way of cooking.

— Linda K

I have enjoyed using my sun oven. In Arizona we have lots of sun and during summer, cooking outside keeps the house cooler.

— Cindy

We have baked sourdough bread, brownies, lasagna, eggplant parmesan and baked and dried dog treats. It’s great not to have to use the indoor oven so often, especially when it’s warm. I highly recommend the Sun Oven not only for camping or emergency situations, but also for everyday use!

— Kate W

When I purchased my Sunoven I had a few things on my wish list it. I wanted something to use in an emergency. I wanted a way to cook without using up any of my electricity(we went solar long ago). I hoped it would allow me to cook during the summer so I didn’t need to heat up the kitchen. Were my hopes and wishes answered? Oh, yes…and then some! My Sunoven makes better pulled pork, chicken stock and beans than I can in my kitchen. I use it on average 3-5 times a week.

— Mary L

Prepared my oven for cooking by the oven instructions. Tried a pretzel brownie mix as my first test. It was sunny when I started the process, but 10 min into cooking time, cloud cover came over and temperature dropped to 200 degrees F. I just left it alone and when the cloud cover moved, the oven quickly went to 320 degrees F. Took a bit longer to cook the brownies, but who cares, the power is free! The brownies were perfectly done and delicious. Bread baking is next. I put my oven on a glass table on our deck, aimed it south and just had to adjust it one time by turning slightly for maximum sun exposure. Absolutely love this oven. I can see already that it will be my primary oven for the hot summer months in the south since I don’t want the house to heat up on the inside. I believe it is best to buy this complete set because the pot and pan sizes are perfect.

— J M

Love it! Great product……everything came as promised, in excellent condition. I have already used it & everything was a success.

— Kendra H

I cook daily from scratch but got tired of the heat in the kitchen from cooking meals and making bread especially on 40 degree weather days. I also grew tired of being in the middle of cooking and all of a sudden having an unexplained power outage in the middle of the day and being stranded because i was in the middle of roasting or baking, and then wasting propane in the bbq. I bought this because I’m genuinely interested in solar cooking and tired of paying the hydro man. This oven works absolutely awesome. I didn’t follow anyone recipes i just cut down on the amount of water or moisture that normally would be put into something because when it slow cooks the natural juices are abundant and makes everything taste amazing. First night i threw a pork roast and potatoes in a 13 inch roaster and it cooked to perfection, the meat fell apart and the potatoes turned out golden. Next day i threw in veggie chili, and also baked strawberry cobbler. Each time i cooked the oven got up to 360 degrees F and allowed my cobbler to turned golden brown on top. The oven will hold at about 300 when a cloud hits it as long as there’s 20 mins of sun an hour your meal will cook fine. When you first get the item put a pie pan in it and let the oven boil vinegar in it until it steams the whole chamber for at least an hour. Wipe it out and you’re good to go, no smells and no plastic tasting food. All i could smell was my food when it was cooking out on my deck which was great because my kitchen was kept cool and clean :) you may need to adjust the door clasps when you receive it to loosen them up so they clasp the glass door and keep it sealed but that wasn’t a big deal. The adjuster leg in the back is great because it allows you to keep the oven aligned with the sun which maintains the heat or makes it hotter. No it does not scorch your food whether you are baking or roasting. If you are roasting make sure the
pan is sitting on one of the racks provided so the air can get underneath. I am having a blast and best of all its low maintenance and can assist you in emergencies. I have never had any experience solar cooking, just dive in and have fun. The appliance is lightweight to so you can take it with you wherever. It will cook while you’re doing other things. The preparedness package is nice because it comes with everything you would use for camping. I have been also using dark bakeware such as bakers secret or wilton as the dark bakeware cooks phenomenal in it. PS the leveling rack is super convenient because as u change the height or move the solar oven in any way the rack adjusts with the tilt of the oven which means no spills!!!!

— jbg

Works great. Sun Ovens International is a company that I can recommend to all. I will definitely give this one a high rating for efficiency and customer care. Thank you.

— George F

Where can I begin! This sun oven is outstanding, phenomenal and well thought out. For those customers looking at my review; trust me it is a worth while investment to buy this bad boy, I’m in sunny California and I’m sure i will get the most out of this solar oven! 3 words: I am hooked, and that’s as simple as I can lay it out to you. This sun oven will be a hit in central america, as I have a trip to Guatemala city soon and guess what tagging along with me? I’m going to bring my solar oven to teach and show my relatives down there. Thanks for a great outstanding product and i hope this helps another customer to decide to buy it.

— Miguel C

Great product delivered faster than expected. EXCELLENT job overall and definitely they have the tools to satisfy their clients, including me. So I’m giving this company a high rating needless to say.

— Paul P

I like my All American Sun Oven A LOT!!! Features I Like:1)The Size! This thing is huge which is a good thing. My older previous Solar Oven was small and was limiting as to what could be cooked in it.2) The Leveling Rack! Yes – very innovative! Tilt the Sun Oven all the way up in its lowest notch on a mid winter day and everything stays nice and level – cakes, cornbread, liquids, soups, stews etc. I was not able to cook these foods in my previous Solar Oven.3) Sturdy Construction – Takes a beating and keeps on Heating! : )4) The alignment indicators – makes lining it up with the sun a breeze!5) The large reflectors! Cooks pretty well on overcast days even!I highly recommend this All American Sun Oven to anyone that is interested in Solar Cooking – it works!

— Charlie G

Love this oven. Already used it & the food was awesome. The banana bread we baked was to die for & much better than the regular oven baked. So much more moisture!

— Teresa N

Off to a good start with butternut and spaghetti squash and sweet potatoes! I am definitely happy to find Sun Ovens International for my purchase. This for me is definitely a life-changer!

— Kimberly N

Have used it twice and both were a success! Sorry I waited so long to purchase. Love it! I can say that I am very satisfied with what I got and would certainly give my recommendation to them.

— Granny B

I’m loving my oven and have told numerous friends about it. One of my friends is going to order two ovens! Can’t wait to dehydrate some things this week. Thank you for a great product.

— Kevin H

It performs wonderfully well. It matches the cooking times similar to your gas oven recipes. It does a more accurate and thorough job of preparing your meal and it’s use of full size pots is very convenient and time saving.

— Ken C

We absolutely love our Sun Oven. We live on Maui, and decided to become “Preppers” after an earthquake knocked out our power for many hours.



I was a bit skeptical, but the more we use it, the more we love it. It meets or surpasses all of the claims made about it.



The food comes out of it flavorful, moist, and delicious. Never dry and never burnt.



Easy to use, and gets easier with practice.



Our electricity is very high here, and we haven’t turned on our conventional oven since we started using the Sun Oven. It will pay for itself within a year we think.

This is great! Had mine at 390 degrees f today! January 24, 2016. I love using this. We do all of our day to day baking and roasting with it.

I have three or four sun ovens and many teachers I know do, too. I was privileged with being the lead trainer for the PG&E Solar Schools program and imagine that dozens of Sun Ovens were purchased with grant funds. These are the most durable solar ovens on the market and I give them my highest recommendation!

— Barry S

Very well made and works well providing there are limited clouds. I just cooked cinnamon rolls and hot coffee while anchored out on a boat over night. It warmed up Polish sausage and saucer kraut and dinner rolls last night. It does take up a lot of room on a boat, though. I put it in the overhead bed in a van camper. Handy in that most of the needed accessories fit inside and you can use it as a cooler for food and drinks. Btw, it’ll cook pancakes from those instant mix Bisquick bottles. I bought a cheap frying pan and unscrewed the handle to get a baking dish with sides on it. The pans that come with it heat rapidly and seem almost non stick and wiped off easily. The case is remarkably durable and tough. I’ve had it rolling around in the bottom of a cabin cruiser. It’s probably best used on land or on a large houseboat…

— Jay M

I love cooking with the sun oven. If the sun is shining it will cook even if it is 20 degrees.

— Suzane H

GREAT & WONDERFUL: You are world Leader of Solar Ovens Training field…. Wish you all the Best forever…….

— Syed R Z

I’m the proud owner of 2 Sun Ovens. With my last oven I ordered the accessories kit which included a 8″ round pan with a flat glass lid. I just wanted to let you know that this in one of the best pans that I have ever used in the solar over! It’s dark and soaks up the sun, large enough for a full dinner to go in together, yet it has such a low center of gravity that it’s much less likely to spill. Good job! I just wanted to let you know I’m one pleased customer & I wanted to say thanks!

— Russ E

We purchased our sun oven for emergency needs. We decided we should actually make meals to have some level of experience with this item. We’ve made several chicken meals and have been amazed at how much better the food tastes. We were blown away! Next we tried making bread. Hands down the best bread you will ever have. Our kids love to participate and talk about it at school that we cooked meals in a solar oven. :-)

— Tom P

I bought the Sun Oven last April and have cooked many meals in it since. Today, I cooked chicken thighs and even though everything I read says it doesn’t brown the meat, I found that it does. I have baked bread in it too and that came out brown also. Today the chicken came out really brown with the crusty skin I love so much. I live off the grid, so use this to replace the wood cook stove in the warm weather. Love it!

— Kathleen L

I went to a solar fair about 6 years ago and spent the day testing solar ovens. Hands down the Sun Oven surpassed all the others. Since then Sanzuma our nonprofit has been buying them and donating them to women and families in need. We focus on Central America and Mexico. We also use them to teach alternative energy to low income families in California.

— Lori D

This thing is awesome! So far I’ve made quick breads, roasts, and boiled eggs in it. While the inside has gotten very hot (I’ve seen it get to about ~325 degrees thus far), the outside remains comfortable to the touch, speaking to the excellent insulation. The door works well to seal in the heat (and steam—I open it and wipe it down periodically), and the hanging racks that adjust when you tilt the sun oven are genius. All in all, I’m am thoroughly impressed with this. It’s so nice to set this out and cook something using just the free solar energy, and without heating up my kitchen (especially during hot months). I’m so glad I choose this one.

Great product…..everything came as promised, in excellent condition. I have already used it to make baked pasta with sausage, and it was good. I use the oven primarily to cook foods that require a lot of boiling, like beans. Dry beans get done within 3-4 hours in the sun oven and that keeps the smells and steam from the beans out of my house. My house stays cool and I don’t have to constantly watch for a pot over boiling. The oven beats a slow cooker for this cause the slow cooker puts out a great deal of heat inside a kitchen. Glad I bought it.

I have always felt that this company was interested in helping me achieve my goals in solar, prepping, and cooking. I love the informative monthly newsletter and the occasional sales items.

Awesome fun and tasty. The biggest perk is that it costs nothing to bake anything you want!

Hi Sun Oven People,
I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful customer service! I was having shipping issues and Jessica worked with me repeatedly over several weeks in order to get everything figured out. I’m so excited to finally be able to use my Sun Oven and will definitely recommend Sun Oven International to all my friends and family!

Greatest thing I have ever bought – cooks great – amazing company support – seriously, made my onions, zucchini and sweet potato taste sweeter

I bought my Sun Oven in 2003 and still use it regularly. My husband and I travel the state (Texas – big state) demonstrating solar cooking and teaching people how to solar cook. My little Sun Oven has held up wonderfully to the heavy use it’s been through all these years.

I am very pleased with this purchase. I have used the SUN OVEN for over a year now. I am on net metering and I don’t use power from 12 to 6pm. I have cooked and baked, mostly cookies and corn bread. In the winter months the SUN OVEN reaches 340 F and summer over 380 F. I am very pleased with this purchase. I am still using the pots and racks that came with it.

— Michael F

Great oven, one excellent product! The first time we tried this oven there was snow covering the entire ground and it still reached 325 degrees within about twenty minutes. Baking bread was our first thing to try and it turned out perfect. We absolutely love this oven. It seems to be very well made and easy to align to get the maximum use of the sun. It is fun to use and very energy efficient

— Gary H

Great product, just as expected. Everything went well and there’s really nothing we can say but thank you so much for giving us the best possible service. We will surely visit again and recommend you to many.

Made cookies, on a partly cloudy day too! Good and safe for the grandchildren. Wow, a “just in case”, way to cook. I’m glad they have been so involved in Africa. All of us need to get involved in this means to cook, bake and pasteurize water for the sake of humanity. If you find an organization who provides these to sub Sahara Africa, donate.

Just finished my 4th meal in the sun oven, totally thrilled with it! Everything from pizza and stuffed pastry, to burgers and Pad Thai noodles, and Spatzle. Even in less than perfect weather conditions… hazy skies and partially cloudy, and ambient temperatures between 54 and 75 degrees. Highest SUN OVEN temperature so far: 365 degrees!

I’ve had my Sun Oven for almost four years and LOVE learning new ways to cook in it. Especially, most recently FRESH, right out of the chicken hard boiled eggs cooked in a cardboard carton. They peel like magic!

— Carole P

We have three of these SUN OVENS. We use them all the time to bake potatoes, make rice, cook chicken in spaghetti sauce for chicken cacciatore, cook kidney beans or split peas for soup, cook lentils, bake yams for yam soup, and hard boil eggs. That’s right — we take a cardboard carton of a dozen eggs and place it in the sun oven. Just put the carton right in there for one hour and 15 minutes. We take the carton out and cool the eggs off — they are perfectly hard boiled and easy to peel just the way everyone likes them. They are DELICIOUS. And, yes, my favorite days to sun oven are cold, sunny days with snow on the ground. I have so many pictures of my sun oven cooking away sitting in the snow. It’s a great conversation starter with the neighbors. My sun ovens are my favorite possessions. I love them!

— Nancy T

My husband purchased this SUN OVEN for me for Christmas. Today we ran a little test. Hubby followed the instructions to aim it and we managed to get it to a temperature of 370 F! Today is not particularly hot with a mid 70s high and a little haze in the sky. We did put the oven an a table so it was raised and we have had to adjust the angle a few times to ensure it was getting maximized sunlight. We are pretty happy with it, so far so good. We were a little concerned that the higher temperatures advertised could not be reached. But yes they can IF the oven is properly aimed and focused. You do need to move and adjust it regularly to ensure sunlight is maximized.

Fantastic Item! If you have never tried a sun oven you do not know what you are missing. It won’t burn your food and the food is so delicious it’s unreal. Trust me it’s worth the investment.

— Sam H

Just wanted to pass on our Sunoven has been a great asset during our ongoing recovery of Hurricane Irma down here in rural Florida. As I write this letter, we are cooking sliced sweat potatoes with brown sugar and butter in the bottom pot and rice, black beans, chicken broth and seasoned chicken breast in the top pan. Many folks are still without power and/or propane in the state as well as here locally. Once the hurricane passed and the sun came out our Sunoven was a key tool for our family. If Paul does another hurricane special for the oven and accessories it should get a good response.

Pretty darn amazing Amazing! I have cooked brownies, oatmeal, boiled water and a few more things to start testing and they are worked wonderfully. Everything it comes with, the hydrating shelves, pots, ect, is an added bonus to get you going almost out of the box. I highly recommend this because of the ease of use and the quality product. I “thought” I could make one, but not like this, so I am glad I bought. This could be a lifesaver…

— Dan B

Within two days, I cooked beef roast and fish stew in the Sun Oven at 300 and 200 degrees respectively. The roast meat submerged in water opened up and soaked up the flavor. The next day was cloudy, and the fish cooked well at 200 degrees all day. Praise Jesus for the Sun Oven. You’ve shown me a method of good cooking and energy saving. Hallelujah. My husband loves it.

Love my oven

— Deborah W.

I have had one of your Solar Ovens for 3 years now… LOVE IT!!! It has been in the upper 90s & even 100 degrees for many weeks. Cook in this oven & not heating up the house is great. The food in one of these ovens is very good, tasty!!!

— Kenneth K.

We bought a Sun Oven last Christmas as a gift to each other and LOVE it! After listening to your workshop and understanding the quality of your product and the amazing work you do in countries that have so much need, I felt so good about supporting your company. I have sang your praises on FB and contacted family to let them know how we love your oven! We plan to make Christmas Dinner with our two ovens so our kids can see how awesome they are. Now we are praying for a sunny Christmas. Thanks so much for your workshop outstanding product!
