Well roughing it, dry rations and freeze dried meals will allow you to live whilst adventuring, but for those of us who prefer to eat in lavish style, this portable solar cooker is an absolute must! No batteries, energy source or gas needed with this oven which makes yummy meals though the raw power of the sun. This stove cooks at around 360 degrees fahrenheit but can reach up to 550. It bakes, roasts, steams and sautes in one fluid motion and promises to complete the whole process in only 20 minutes. Plus, what you don’t eat right away can be placed back inside the oven to keep toasty for easy gobbling later. The stove’s solar vacuum tube cooking chamber has a layer of insulation meant to keep heat locked in and the cold kept out.!

The dogger is perfect for hot dogs and other small meaty treats. It cooks at 75 degrees fahrenheit, promising to grease hungry tummies for those of us dining in the wilderness on a budget.
