"Women and the Sun"

Enjoy this video of how the women of Oaxaca, Mexico use Haines Solar Cookers to improve their lives and the environment. It details how households, restaurants and even commercial facilities use the power of the sun to cook, bake and process materials.


All in all, I find the Haines 2 Solar Cooker a great addition to my cooking appliances and a very good value for the price. Now I wonder what I’ll cook next?

Its not fast but it is fun. We chose this one for cost, amazingly durable and ridiculously easy. Its not fancy, but its near perfect.

Even in the middle of winter, in central California, we are still able to cook chicken, beans, rice, etc. without spending a dime on fuel.

Worked well. it took about 2 hours to cook rice in the morning sun with some occasional clouds at 65F or so. Great design - simple and effective.

I got this for in case power goes out, again and again. I also have rocket stove and propane burner from WalMart. So ready for anything. This seems to be exactly as shown on video. Very light and all pieces in package. Pleased. 

Please don't hesitate to order this! If you are an off gridder, homesteaders, getting prepared, or playing in the backyard, GET THIS.

Our International Work

Our International Work

The Haines Solar Cooker is used in developing countries to negate the damage being done by deforestation.  Trees and firewood are increasingly scarce and expensive for the two billion people who presently rely on it for cooking. A solar cooker can cook or bake whenever the sun shines while being supervised at a distance, because it never burns food.

Saves the Environment. A solar cooker produces zero emissions, reducing global warming and local deforestation.

Saves Health. Lung disease from cooking smoke is a leading cause of death in developing countries, and many children suffer burns from cooking fires. A solar cooker eliminates these problems.

Saves Time. The cooker is set up in minutes and watched from the shade with no danger of burning as it cooks, bakes, or pasteurizes water. By contrast, collecting firewood, feeding a cooking fire and stirring the food to prevent burning is very time-consuming.
