    in a pinch a piece of foil unfolded and propped up works. Cant get much cheaper than that.

    Wouldn't it have to be relatively big like medium-satellite dish size?

    Pocket sized? NO.

    Solar cooker for anything larger than lighting a cigarette will be a square meter or square yard in size or larger.

    How do the smaller box-style ones work as opposed to the larger fanning out ones?

    How hot can a solar oven really get? Say it's 100 degrees outside. How much more hot could it get in a solar oven?

    I've seen them on Ed Begley's show Living with Ed. He uses one and it seems to work quite well. Actually have learned a lot from that show, he's a very frugal living man.
