All the earthly activities are manifestations of energy in one form or another and the use of solar energy offers a practical solution for the household energy problem. Solar energy as a medium of cooking has been identified for a long time but practiced only in a limited way. From time to time many solar energy based cooking devices have been designed and its performance efficiently studied. Solar box cookers have been identified as feasible cooking gadgets especially at the household level and are increasingly used by housewives. While feasibility studies on the use of these cookers are available, comparative nutritive profiles of foods using these solar cookers as against the common methods of cooking are not widely available.

Abstract


All the earthly activities are manifestations of energy in one form or another and the use of solar energy offers a practical solution for the household energy problem. Solar energy as a medium of cooking has been identified for a long time but practiced only in a limited way. From time to time many solar energy based cooking devices have been designed and its performance efficiently studied. Solar box cookers have been identified as feasible cooking gadgets especially at the household level and are increasingly used by housewives. While feasibility studies on the use of these cookers are available, comparative nutritive profiles of foods using these solar cookers as against the common methods of cooking are not widely available.
