Picture of shoebox solar oven
I made this solar oven from nothing but:
a shoebox (with lid attached, not removavel),
an old winter shirt,
a plastic bag,
some black paper,
two pencils,
and alluminium foil.

Step 1: The lid

Cut the lid like the image.

Um... How do you put stuff in it? Do you have to rip off the plastic bag?

No. You just open the lid as you would normally do on any shoebox.

well, does it cook anything, or is this theoretical! Show us something tangible.

I put an apple on it around 12 o' clock, in a cloudy day and at 20 o'clock it was almost cooked, but solar ovens, unless hi-tech they are very slow. To show you that solar ovens work, the first was able to melt rock!
Rock ?
