Solar Oven

I eventually want to get my house to be off the grid or at least be able to survive with electricity.

My immediate project is to make a solar oven. I have the plans for it but trying to find out if I should use a fresnel lens, glass or just heavy plastic. A fresnel lens looks like it heats excessively and may burn food and even the wood I would use to make the oven.

Here are some links to ready made solar ovens, you could get some ideas from those... American Educational Products SR-GS4702 Sunspot Solar Oven
By gosh there is even a solar oven society... Solar Oven Society

This is one of the best I've seen... Sun Ovens Solar Cooking - Sun Oven, Solar Cooking | SunOven.com

My simple site may answer some of your off-grid questions.
