    there is no such thing as a "negro" inventor. you are in a space of separation and fear. release yourself from bigotry. every inventor on the planet is an earth inventor! every variety of our species is blessed with special gifts that benefit the whole! all are necessary and needed.

    how high can the temperature reach up to? it would be nice if there's a device installed to store this energy for a rainy day, literally… heheh…

    it depends on the ovens or cookers you use. It's nodifferent than using a slow cooker/crock pot. most ovens and cookers reach 200 degrees. the more reflectors, the higher the temps. slow cooked solar foods taste far superior over fast cooked, and they have far more nutrients because no high heat was used to destroy them. been solar cooking now for 4 years. I have been able to cook several meals a day.

    I have videos about using clay as the backing for large "compound" parabolic and "w curve" dishes for long time cooking and way cheaper cookers. Also a project on instructables where anybody can use software to design a better reflective dish. (Parabolic is NOT the best shape for a stationary concentrating reflector!)

    Pretty cool stuff. But I suppose this requires strong, consistent sunlight for much of the year.

    Way to take things out of context, great job…

    Perhaps someday you'll learn to present a sound counter argument, but until then I guess you two will have to settle for your weak informal fallacies.

    saves the women, the top soil, etc.

    Ironically, we're all two paychecks away from living like these people.

    Save African top soil from ending up in the ocean. Save the trees.

    I agree, Reflector. This is a great demonstration of the nearly free technology already available worldwide!

    I would love to see that catch on on the Philippines. I've made my own solar oven and it works great. But it's not something that most people want to cook with at this time.

    I love the pasteurization meter, even though my electricity is included in my rent, I still use my solar cooker all the time. change starts from within.

    lol, did he just call them "shiny things"?

    Someone please get the Africans to use these so they'll stop cutting all their trees down and help them get out of the stone age. They get more Sun than anyone.

    @abneyone It'd be impossible to do frequently in the Philippines. Your lungs would die from the pollution outside. but i'd like to see it done, nevertheless

    @harleyxxfabco racist ass. Not thier fault they are deprived of knowledge that most people take for granted. Is it not fair to share this so that they can live better. I'm sure if thier own people and country wasen't trying to screw them over they could be showning us what to do. Just get over it.

    Why isn't it their fault that they have barely progressed past the stone age?
    I am all for sharing technology withe them. It is just a damn shame that it takes Western civilization (white people) to lift them out of poverty. They ought to be falling all over themselves thanking the Anglo-American culture for dragging them into the 21st century.

    @harleyxxfabco it's not their fault because if they could just drive down to Walmart or Target and pick up all this shit they would. But they can't for various reasons like lack of money, resources and a good government, none of which is their fault. they obviously are grateful for the help they're receiving. and really, we should probably be doing more to help people in these countries when we've got it so good without nearly doing as much as they do just to survive.

    These are a must have for us because in winter if the sun is out but snow is on the ground you can still cook. And for backpacking the one that breaks down is great for cooking in. And they keep the heat out of my kitchen in our 100* summer days here in CA

    typical sexist propaganda, it's only a problem if it affects the wiminz. Too bad, this vid was interesting until 1:12 Thumbs downed
