Step 5:

In this photo I have it set up like a typical box cooker and this will work best in the summer when the sun is higher in the sky.  Since the sun is more intense when straight overhead, you may not even need the side reflectors.

<p>Thank you so much.</p>
Just a quick question. When you put the plexiglass in place, would your cookinh vessel already be inside?
<p>Yes, the front is the only opening. Place the pot inside - lay the plexi on top and hold it in place with the little homemade clips.</p>
Thank you. It does make quite a nice cooker - very durable and it works very good.
I love it. A scouts dream, man.
This is one of the simpler designs I have seen for a solar oven. I like it.
