Solar Oven Partners

What can solar ovens do?
Provide practical solutions.

  • Cooking
    Anything a Dominican Republic family cooks with charcoal can be cooked in a solar oven, including meats, rice and vegetables.

  • Baking can be a source of extra income.
    With the solar oven, women can bake breads, cakes and muffins--
    something impossible with charcoal. The oven can provide an opportunity for a small business selling baked goods--including special- occasion cakes--to earn added income. 
  • Pasteurizing water
    Each SOP solar oven comes with a WAPI,  a simple reusable Water Pasteurization Indicator. A  family can pasteurize water, killing dangerous microbes that can cause life-threatening illness, especially in children. The WAPI utilizes a special soy wax that helps users determine when water has reached the pasteurization temperature.
