Haines Solar Cookers
The Haines 2 is the most recent version of the popular product series. Based on the experience learned from the Haines 1, the Haines 2 capitalizes on the same basic panelbolic design with added features to increase heat and efficiency.
The Haines 2 snaps together for quick assembly, disassembly and easy storage. Depending on solar conditions, the Haines 2 can boil a liter of water in about 40 minutes. It is adjustable for low and high sun angles to maximize solar energy, and weighs only 29 ounces.
The reflector is Mylar bonded to polyester foam making is strong but flexible. It will not scratch or oxidize and is not affected by boiling water.
The cooking sleeve insulates and elevates the pot so sunlight can be reflected onto the bottom of the pot.
The standard package includes a 4.5 quart stainless steel Haines Dutch oven pot and tempered glass lid. The glass lid allows you to monitor cooking without removing it. It is safe – only the cooking pot gets hot (use hot mitts for handling.) The unique panelbolic design of the Haines 2 evenly distributes heat along the bottom of the pot for greatest efficiency and cooking.
