The All American Sun Oven: Sponsor Highlight and Discount {Giveaway Tomorrow}

Wouldn't it be nice if you could cook, bake, and dehydrate food without paying for or relying on electricity? How about no-mess cooking while camping, after a natural disaster, or in your own backyard so that you don't heat the house in warm weather? I am amazed that all of that is possible with solar cooking - harnessing the immense energy of the sun to cook your food! Today I want to tell you about the unique American-made Sun Oven that is used all over the world. 

Since a video is worth way more than a thousand words, here is everything you may need to know about how the Sun Oven works and how to use it:

The Sun Oven is about the size of a small suitcase, so it is very portable. The simple, one piece design takes the hassle out of solar cooking, which has really need around for centuries. So what are the benefits of using the Sun Oven, here are just some:

  • It's free: After the initial investment of buying a sun oven, there is never a need for electricity, fuel, or any type of refills!
  • It's easy: You'll use it a couple of times and will be a pro, it works very similarly to a regular oven, so there is no steep learning curve. It's near impossible to burn your food in a solar oven
  • Like an oven: It reaches temperatures of 360 to 400 degrees, just like your oven. It's perfect for baking, boiling, and steaming. The temperature inside is even and there is no need to stir the food
  • Safe: The Sun Oven is flameproof, it may be used where open flame cooking is prohibited and it is safer around children than an open fire or a grill (of course it's still hot, so advise kids to be cautious!)
  • It's Eco-friendly: Using the sun to cook, what can be more resourceful and environmentally sound? No fossil fuels or electricity required!
  • Fun for Kids: Get your kids outdoors and making their own healthy snacks! They'll be amazed at the power of the sun and how it can dehydrate fruits and veggies
  • Endless possibilities: While the Sun Oven is most appreciated in the event of a power outage, it can be used in so many ways: camping and RVing, in your backyard, boating, at the park, at the beach, traveling in remote regions, living off grid, etc. 

The All American Sun Oven with a Granite Ware Enamel 3-quart Cooking Pot costs $349. There is also one with a preparedness and dehydrating package that in addition includes two loaf pans, multi-fuel water pasteurizing indicator, two easy stack pots with interchangeable enamel and glass lids, and multi-level dehydrating and baking rack set (3 racks with one roll of parchment paper) for $399. Shipping is included in both!

I have two exclusive discount codes for you for $70 off the Sun Oven with preparedness/dehydrating package or $50 off the Sun Oven! Expires June 15th, see details here. (also available on Amazon). 

I think it's pretty obvious the Sun Oven is amazing! Honestly I would have loved to use one and review one myself but we have a less than ideal situation where our condo association doesn't allow us to leave anything outdoors and the shared yard is in the shade, away from direct sunlight, for most of the day. I would probably only use it for camping, but that's something we aren't up to yet with little ones. If we had a single family home with our own yard, I would be all over this thing!

Since the generous folks at the All American Sun Oven had one oven available, I thought it would be perfect to give away to one of my readers! Tomorrow during the Green Your Summer event, you may enter to win the Sun Oven!

    1. Isn't it? Awesome idea and looks so easy! :)

  2. Wow, this sounds great! Occasionally over the years I've thought about using a solar oven but never looked too far into it. It would really help keep the house cooler in the summer time. I moved back to my hometown area a few years back and am still not used to the summer heat. I'm sure my children would love to get involved using it too. I'll be back to enter tomorrow. :)
