SolSource harnesses solar energy at high efficiency to power zero-emissions cooking. It reaches 550F within minutes on a sunny day and operates well in sunny to mildly cloudy conditions. Does not operate in very cloudy or nighttime conditions. System is designed to be wind-sturdy and robust. It also flat packs for easy storage or transport. Cooking interface provides comfortable cooking experience and protects users eyes from UV radiation. Reflector is robust to abrasion and exhibits a 1% decline in performance over 10 years of accelerated weather testing. Specially designed covers and high-performance solar cookware are available as part of the product line, but aren't required for operation.
