Sun oven in use,pretty good day,86 outside,few fluffy clouds,4:15 PM. Click to enlarge thumbnails,these are big pics....
Temp 330 degrees,will see if it gets any hotter today in a bit...
Now for truth in advertising.The build quality on MY unit was poor.Might just be mine,I havent seen others complain.
For starters all 4 ends of the 2 side pieces split.I decided to just epoxy them back together and that has worked well.
Then when I took it apart to repair there was about a 4" round section where there wasnt any insulation,it was jammed down when they put it together.Upper left corner on this side,inside.
Finally where the plastic base meets the wood frame there were several areas with bad fit and air leaks.I myself did a rather ugly silicone job there,but again it fixed the problem. This also shows the adjustable leg to aim cooker.Sorry the unit is dirty,I just pulled it out
Finally this pic shows the inside oven tray,it swings on the 2 bolts on side to remain level when leg is used to adjust sun capture angle
Now even with all that said I LOVE this oven.I just hope my build problems were the exception and not the rule.
Tomorrow I will try bread and a roast and HOPEFULLY it will come out good.....Now that Ive committed to it I'd hate to see it bomb,bad loaf,bad clouds or something,LOL!
