Let the sun cook for you

Solari is a modern-day, fuel-free, pollution-free, portable, solar cooker that provides an alternative to today’s inefficient, costly and health damaging method of open-fire cooking. Solari has taken the principles of the solar box oven and re-envisioned it by making use of the latest insulating materials, optics & sensing technology. With 2.7 billion people in the world today relying on wood, crop waste, dung, and biomass to cook daily, Solari provides a healthier, low-cost alternative.
