100 Suns Solar Stove constructed in Sudan

100 Suns is a solar stove developed by Amogh Sahaje. The solar stove is claimed to have a simple design that can be easily constructed at home with inexpensive readily available materials and cook as fast as a conventional stove. The solar stove is also said to have a robust and modular design which requires less maintenance and makes mending, if required, very cheap and easy.
