When we think of technology in the cooking industry, the GoSun Stove is definitely one key enterprise that cannot be overlooked. Truly, the beauty of technology is that it is revolutionary in nature. Just when we thought we had seen it all, Patrick Sherwin, the founder of GoSun Stove amazed everyone with his state-of-the-art invention. What began as a long morning of dismantling a typical water heating contraption, turned out to be the birth of the idea of building a potent sun cooking stove.
Want to learn more about this amazing technology and how it can help you? Read our detailed review below and discover.
The GoSun Stove is designed to convert the ever-free solar light into a fast, practical and efficient source of cooking energy. With it, you can steam, fry, bake and even boil food as long as you can access the sun. Put simply, it is ultimately the perfect outdoor cooking solution. What’s even most catchy, using this device registers you to the movement that is sworn to battle the global warming menace.
Admittedly, the GoSun stove company is not the only solar cooker manufacturer on the market today. Even so, their primary strength lies in cooking speeds, portability, lower pricing to value ratio, and most importantly ease of use. Let’s cover each in detail.
- Ease of Use
Unlike most other related solar stoves, GoSun is fully automated. All you have to do is prepare your food, place it in the heating chamber, set the time you want to wait, and allow the device some time to perform its magic.
Camping or backpacking demands adventure. You certainly don’t want to waste time seated gazing at the cooking pot. Instead, you want to explore which is exactly what the GoSun offers you- luxury and convenience. For instance, if you are out there fishing, you can place the grill on board, put some fish inside, and explore the waters while the stove does the cooking for you. What if it is not getting much light? The stove is light in nature - you can easily carry it around and adjust it to an angle that you deem fit.
- Cooking Speeds
A hungry man is an angry one. That proverb must have guided the company engineers when they were building the packs that are up for sale currently. This stove works super-fast and will, therefore, get things done very fast for you. For example, frying a quarter kilo of meat in full sun takes you 30 minutes or less. But note that the keyword here is "full sun." Otherwise, a cloudy, sunny day might push the 30 minutes to about two hours. In a nutshell, the sun is its key strength is also its primary weakness.
Naturally, when shopping, you’ll want an item that gives you more value for the money you spend on it. While GoSun Stove isn’t the cheapest cooking solution out there, the experience, convenience, and durability you harvest out of it eventually surpass the excellence mark. The science behind its crafting, as we shall see in a moment, is quite complex. Therefore, it requires relatively expensive construction materials and an absolute duty of care on the side of the manufacturer to achieve a safer and efficient means of cooking. In the end, the value you get undeniably towers over the price.
Once you purchase this device, the first thing you’ll realize is its ability to make your cooking process simple. Below we explain how this amazing device works.
- The Science
The GoSun Stove has two key parts namely the borosilicate vacuum tube and the double winged aluminum parabolic reflectors.
The reflectors’ principal function is to direct sunlight onto the vacuum tube which then heats the chamber where the food rests. From our cooking experience, we know better that utensils built out of aluminum conduct heat faster than their steel counterparts. That explains the logical reason why the manufacturers used the material for its core part. On the other hand, a vacuum tube is employed to facilitate insulation, absorbing, and preserving heat. As such, it stores the heat conducted from the aluminum coating before transmitting it to the innermost region where the actual cooking happens. On average, the temperature goes up to 280 degrees Celsius which is close to the figure a conventional oven gives. Truly a commendable job from the engineering team at GoSun.
Looking for options? GoSun is a company that overflows with varieties. We are confident they will have a perfect oven for whatever cooking objective you have in mind. Take a moment and explore below a list of the most popular ones.
