Direct Tv Dish to Solar Cooker

Introduction: Direct Tv Dish to Solar Cooker

About: You may recognize Dan and Denise Rojas from their appearances in various made for tv movies and national commercials. As the hosts of Green Power Science, they share Fresnel lens and alternative energy ideas...

The strip method allows for the reflective tape/film to form to the parabola UNLIKE pie cuts and circles that pinch and crumble at the ends.

Use a standard metal yard stick that is 2" wide. This will cut perfect 2" strips.

Use an adhesive mirror film. DO not use aluminum foil, it does not work well.
