Question: How can you build a homemade oven?
Answer: One of the easiest ways to build a homemade oven is to create a solar oven. These are safe, simple, and effective ovens that can be built with items you probably already have around the house. All you need is a reflector such as mylar or even cardboard coated in aluminum foil, an oven bag, and a black pot or other container for food. Place the cooking container (pot) into the oven bag. Using a black container ensures that the most energy, and thus heat, will be absorbed from the sunlight. Position the reflector around the cooking container so that it focuses light onto it. This reflector may need to be adjusted every hour or two as the Sun changes position. This kind of simple solar oven can easily reach temperatures of over 200 degrees Farenheit making them suitable for cooking just about everything. Cooking times will simply be longer than usual. Well constructed solar cookers can reach as high as 300 degrees Farenheit.
