Cookers Set Up for Solar Feast

EarthBound Tech is devoted to helping advance the state of the art of solar and other sustainable energy options. Currently we are putting most of our effort into the analysis, design and evaluation of solar cookers. You are welcome to use the information presented here to build your own EB style cooker. We would appreciate feedback on your experience building and using EB Cookers

 

Our Newest Cookers

The EB Hybrid Parabolic (Hypar) Cooker is our newest cooker.  It is primarily a multisided parabolic cooker with the outermost section replaced with a conic section.

The EB Parabolic is a 16 sided 45 inch (1.14 Meter) Parabolic cooker. We cooked with this cooker on the winter solstice in Massachusetts. It had plenty of cooking power for winter cooking.

Some current projects
 

Continue to perfect and promote the EB Hypar Cooker.  More work is needed on the Stand and Pot Support.  We also plan to design and build larger prototypes
.
Continue perfecting and promoting our new method of evaluating solar cookers by Reciprocity with photographic analysis.  Evaluate and compare the performance of other panel cookers.  Also use ray tracing to evaluate the performance of other cookers.
Evaluate the performance of cookers using our data acquisition system.

Other Solar Cooking Interests

Continue our search for better reflective materials.

Review the performance of other cookers using our data acquisition system
 
Increase the power flow into box cookers by optimizing the size and orientation of reflectors.
