Post image for Sun Oven: A Review & Giveaway!

As you know, me and my hubby have been working in the last year or so towards our goal of living "off the grid". We've been looking into alternative energy options and how to make the most of those by checking out non-electric resources and products.

A few months ago I read about Sun Ovens in one of my favorite magazines. As I was in the middle of dehydrating season I just had to look into it because I know we use some much electricity when I run the oven to dry my vegetables for hours on end! Here are some of the things I discovered about the Sun Oven.

In a Sun Oven you can cook anything that you would normally cook in a conventional oven. You can also cook just about anything that you would cook on a stove-top in a Sun Oven also. Cooking time in a Sun Oven is very similar to that of a conventional oven unless you have a disruption in the sunlight or if you open the door too many times.

Sun Oven's do not require special pots and pans so you don't have an additional cost! You can cook more than one thing at once to be able to maximize your oven time, and as a bonus, foods in the Sun Oven don't burn!

After learning more about the Sun Oven the thing I really love about them is that they are just like a conventional oven, but they don't use any electricity. If you aren't sure how they work, you can check out all these How-To videos on the Sun Oven website.

Sun Oven is one of our sponsors here at Little House Living this month and they have a great offer just for LHL readers that are interested in purchasing a Sun Oven! Get up $80 off your Sun Oven purchase with special coupon codes, head over to the Sun Oven site for the deals and codes.

I would love to have a Sun Oven! I love the idea of learning traditional ways to do everyday things. As a homemaker and homesteader, this would be something we would use regularly. I can imagine how good bread or roasted chicken would be in one.

We would love a Sun Oven and not just for general preparedness reasons. I would love to take it camping or use it as an extra oven for holiday cooking. Can you imagine having an extra oven on Thanksgiving Day!!! I have a book on solar cooking with instructions on how to make a solar cooker at home but it is nothing like the Sun Oven. I saw their videos and it looks amazing and it keeps the food upright now matter how much to need to adjust/tilt the cooker to get the most sun rays. Wow!

Sun Oven was our second solar oven while living in South Sudan (we had received it as a gift from some Catholic Sisters) and it worked so much better than our first clunky wooden one. The Sun Oven was so light to move around! We had to leave it behind when we left S.Sudan but would love one now that we are living in sunny Saskatchewan.

I have tried to make my own Solar Oven, but it never worked right. I would love to try this out, because living in the South, it gets very hot in the summer. When I turn on the oven, the whole house heats up. But, with a solar oven, I could use the natural resource to cook our food and keep the house cool.

We would love to have one of these! I have been looking for awhile, but they are out of our budget :(

You don’t have to use a certain kind of pan with a sun oven, but dark pans absorb and help distribute the heat. Also, many regular pans won’t fit in a sun oven. Just something to keep in mind! Thanks for the giveaway!

Looking into lots of survival and energy saving things these days. With a Sun Oven and a Rocket Stove, I would be set. They would complement each other quite nicely.

It would be nice to have to be prepared. They are also fun to teach kids how solar energy can be harnessed and used.

Our family is working hard to live “off-grid” even though we are currently on the grid. We would like to use solar, wind and hydro power. The sun oven is something that I know could make a huge difference.

I would love a sun oven to help reduce our energy/gas cost, since moving to Nevada on military assignment we are finding it difficult to afford some things and so we invested in a small toaster oven to heat our foods, if we could be able to bake and cook all day long without the worry of a rising bill I would be ecstatic. We could also take it camping plus since we live in the desert I know we will have tons of sun to make good use of this oven.

I’ve wanted a sun oven since I was first involved with solar energy in the mid-80s. I used to cook Thanksgiving dinner in a solar box oven. It would be so exciting to do it with the sun oven. And it would be very comforting to have one as backup when the power goes out. I’m glad you’re promoting it. Diana
