This module offers to combine different low-tech. The solar oven catches the sun's rays and concentrate them behind a window to increased the temperature of the cooking chamber. If the thickness of the oven has a well thermal isulation, the baking may continue once the panels have been tucked. If the door system steal open, the hot environment is perfect to drying fruits if they are protected of the direct sunlight.

Ps : A « Glacial » use is also possible if you not let the sun penetrate
