Why dry with a Sun Oven?
Sun drying is a natural, economical method of food preservation that
maintains a high level of flavor and nutrients and provides an
easy-to-store supply of your favorite items. You can dry everything you
see dried on the grocery shelf: Dried tomatoes, apricots, pineapple,
peaches, prunes, pears, dates, garlic, onion, peppers, spices, raisins,
meats, fish, and much more.
The sun will turn meat into tasty and
nutritious jerky which can be stored indefinitely.
Dry and store surplus garden and orchard produce. The freshest,
tastiest, and most nutritious food often comes from your own gardens.
High quality fruits and vegetables are seasonal and only available for a
few weeks or months each year. Sun drying is the key to extending the
summer’s precious bounty throughout the year.
Expand your garden and
grow more of the things you’d like to enjoy year-round, such as
Reducing the cost and amount of energy you use for food storage can help
your budget. Sun drying is easier and requires less energy than
canning. Freezing is commonly viewed as the most convenient preservation
method, but freezers require a constant source of electricity and food
will be vulnerable to power outages and mechanical failures.
Most dried vegetables can be easily rehydrated in soups or by including a
bit more water in recipes such as zucchini bread. For great additions
to stir-fry and pasta dishes, you also can rehydrate vegetables by
soaking them in water for 10 minutes to an hour. You can mix dried
fruits with things such as hot cereal or granola to sweeten and increase
nutrients. Sun dried fruits can be blended with seeds, nuts, and grains
to make nourishing energy bars. Sun dried tomatoes taste sweet and are
delicious when eaten plain, made into a tomato pesto, or marinated in
olive oil and garlic.
Each rack measures 12" x 9" x 1.5"

Cooking in a SUN OVEN® is easy, fun, natural, and nutritious, while helping the environment. SUN OVENS®
are ideal for everyday use in your back yard, at picnics, while
camping, or in the event of a power failure. They can help keep your
house cool in the summer by keeping the heat from cooking outside.
Even though it is called an oven, food can be baked, boiled, and
steamed at cooking temperatures of 360° F to 400° F. There is no
movement of air in a SUN OVEN®, allowing food to stay
moist and tender and flavorful. Sun-baked roasts are tastier and more
succulent, and sun-baked bread has unparalleled taste and texture. The
aroma of food sunning itself in a SUN OVEN® is sure to please your senses.
Temperatures in a SUN OVEN® rise slowly and evenly,
allowing complex carbohydrates time to break down into simple sugars,
emanating subtle natural flavors. The even temperature of the SUN OVEN® prevents burning, so you do not need to stir your food while it is cooking.
There are two ways to cook in a SUN OVEN®. If you
refocus the oven to follow the sun every 25 to 30 minutes, cooking times
and methods will be very similar to cooking with a conventional stove
or oven. Or a SUN OVEN® can be used for slow cooking,
much like a crock-pot. You can prepare your dinner, put it in the SUN
OVEN®, point the oven where the sun will be approximately halfway
through the time you will be gone. Leave, and come home to a tasty,
slow-cooked dinner. If you run late, there is no need to worry; the SUN OVEN® will keep your food warm, moist, and fresh for hours.
Why Cook in a SUN OVEN®? It’s all about the Food!
The F’s of SUN OVEN® Cooking
Cooking in a Food Friendly SUN OVEN® is Fresh, Flavorful, and Fundamentally Nutritious.

It seems almost mysterious to put raw food into a black box and remove a
moist, tender, sun cooked dinner. You can enjoy a leisurely day knowing
the sun is hard at work gently cooking your dinner.
- It’s Forgiving
SUN OVEN® cooking is the most forgiving method of
cooking you will ever experience. Sun cooked food does not burn or
scorch, and is very difficult to overcook. A SUN OVEN® transforms unskilled cooks into outdoor gourmets.
- It’s Financially Favorable
After the initial purchase, there is no more money to spend. You do not
need to use electricity, or buy charcoal or gas. You can cook outdoors
throughout the summer and keep you house cooler, reducing air

The sun energizes food without hurting the environment. The air is not
contaminated with smoke or greenhouse gases, and no fossil fuels or
electricity are required.

- It Frees up time
You spend less time preparing, tending and cleaning up sun cooked meals. You can place a frozen meal in your SUN OVEN®
in the morning, set the oven where the sun will be mid-day, and come

work. Cleaning up is easy because the even temperature of your SUN OVEN® prevents the food from burning or scorching your pots or pans.
