Portable Solar Cooker Lets You Cook and Boil Water Even When It’s Cloudy

GoSun Go Portable Solar Stove

Whether you love living off the grid or are a camping aficionado, chances are you’re searching for a way to cook a good meal quickly and efficiently. And what better heat source than the sun? GoSun, a leader in solar grills, has recently come out with a new model designed to allow for portable and economic solar cooking anywhere you go—even on a cloudy day.

The GoSun Go is a durable, portable solar cooker that can do everything from boil water to roast vegetables. The company has taken to Kickstarter for the product launch, which is where their original solar grill took off in 2013. Now, they’re back with a 2-pound grill that folds up into a sturdy case and heats up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius).

The GoSun Go reflects direct and indirect sunlight—allowing you to cook in cloudy conditions—into a double-walled vacuum tube, where light is converted into heat. The vacuum layer allows for extraordinary insulation, keeping food hot while leaving the exterior cool to the touch. GoSun also states that their solar vacuum tubes are more efficient than most solar panels, getting up to 80% efficiency thanks to its special absorbing surface.

There are a myriad of uses for the portable solar stove. It can boil liquids in 30 minutes, letting you sterilize water, make coffee or tea, or rehydrate foods. You can also steam, bake, and roast food in the 14-ounce tube, more than enough space to make a snack or meal for one.

With its unparalleled insulation, it’s no problem to use the GoSun Go in cold conditions, too. Whether on a snowy mountain or sun-soaked beach, the solar rays heat the tube just the same. And because the tube stays cool, the company points out that its a perfect solution of cooking on a boat or other small spaces where there’s a risk for fire hazards.

Through their Kickstarter campaign, the first round of GoSun Go solar stoves are selling for $99, with estimated delivery in April 2018. Even better: each stove comes with a recipe booklet to inspire your next solar meal.

The GoSun Go portable solar cooker can lay flat for cooking meals or stand up for boiling water.
