Does anyone know where to get a pocket sized unfoldable solar cooker?
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?
Please see this video about solar cookers:

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 dont know about the small ones but the homemade larger over 300 degrees. People cook beans, rice, bread cokies etc in them. Heres a link to just one plan ive found.

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.
found this in the newspaper. it's a cool kids project.
