What is solar cooking exactly?
It is all a matter of perspective, to a first grade that warms up their first solar cooked hotdog by solar energy alone, to those kids that’s solar cooking and to an adult that cooks their first chicken using only solar energy that’s solar cooking, too. At the Sun BD Corporation we think about solar cooking on a grander scale. We want you to be able to solar cook an entire meal for your family all at the same time just like you would normally do using your household oven. So too us, that’s considered real solar cooking.
Today there are many solar products on the market mostly panel and parabolic type cookers that allow a single pan of food to be solar cooked at one time. There are also bunches of the long skinny tube type cookers that make you slice and dice up your food to fit the food inside the devices cooking tube. Neither of which are our idea of real solar cooking.
Our solar hybrid ovens are high performance and have a large cooking chamber so you’re NOT LIMITED to dicing up your food or cooking only one pan at a time. At the Sun BD Corporation, we think “BIG”. If you want to cook a large roasting chicken, yes you can, BUT why not add four sweet potatoes and maybe a side pan of vegetables to put into the oven all at the same time.
Unlimited possibilities. Now that’s solar cooking our way!
Remember, if it gets cloudy and overcast our solar ovens are hybrid. CLOUDS WILL NOT DEFEATS US!

This weekend I stepped out of my comfort zone and took the SunFocus hybrid and our newest product the cardboard cased Ugli hybrid solar electric oven to a local home and lifestyle show. It was a perfect little hometown show to show off the Ugli hybrid and get first hand peoples reactions and comments. Their reaction: People were amazed.
This face to face marketing was a good chance to do side by side comparison testing of the SunFocus hybrid and the Ugli hybrid solar electric oven.
The SunFocus hybrid and the Ugli hybrid were both plugged in and used 100% as electric ovens since the home show was inside. Over the two days of the show (Sat & Sun) I was able to cook 4 pizzas, 2 cakes, and dozens of chocolate cookies while talking to the people stopping by and asking questions. Each oven operated for 7 hours non-stop each day, sometimes empty but most time baking the piazzas, cakes and cookies.
The people who stopped by our booth were totally surprised after touching each oven’s outer case. They couldn’t believe the outside of these ovens were so cool to the touch even though the oven’s inside temperature gauge read 300 F.
I was extremely pleased with the performance of both the SunFocus hybrid and the cardboard cased Ugli hybrid working as just electric ovens. It was great weekend. I got to speak to many wonderful people about my passion… my company’s awesome solar electric hybrid ovens.

The modern hybrid solar electric ovens were first developed in India decades ago. Only in this decade did the Sun BD Corporation develop a consumer oriented hybrid solar electric oven (SunFocus hybrid) that is capable of cooking when it’s cloudy and even at nighttime.
You might be thinking, really, it works in cloudy conditions and at night? How is that even possible? The hybrid oven’s beauty is it can operate in anyone of three ways: Solar, Electric or Both. Do not have access to Sunshine to power the solar oven part due to solar cooking’s nemeses clouds? Do you have access to an electrical outlet to power the electric oven part? If you have access to Sunshine and an electrical outlet you can use BOTH at the same time with a hybrid oven. The solar part of the hybrid oven collects and captures the Sun’s energy and converts it to heat. The electric oven part of the hybrid oven senses temperature drops in the oven and will heat it up again to maintain temperature and continue cooking process. The BOTH method cooks the fastest and is the most reliable way too cooking. It’s really an amazing appliance.
On my next blog I’ll explain why that is.
Let me know about your hybrid oven cooking experience.

At the SUN BD CORPORATION we are all about promoting the HYBRID solar electric oven. It’s not because we make them, it’s because we choose to make them. The Hybrid oven has so many advantages over traditional solar ovens. One of the biggest advantages is the HYBRID oven’s ability to maintain a higher and more even cooking temperature over a greater range of weather conditions than a traditional solar oven. Another important advantage of the HYBRID is that it gives you cook-time control and the ability to have a hot cooked meal ready to place on the table, on your schedule, even if it’s 7 O’clock in the evening. Traditional solar ovens cannot do that.
In the coming weeks I hope to be able to discuss our mission at the SUN BD CORPORATION and why we do what we do.
