The Datta Adjustable Panel Cooker has been designed by Sankha Subhra Datta, who lives in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal, India.

The cooker uses a 'suitcase' style enclosure, with mirror main reflectors at the back and front lip. Both of these reflectors can be adjusted for maximum solar gain. The base of the cooker is polished aluminum to aid light collection. It is suited to using two cook pots at the same time. The stainless steel and aluminum construction materials should make the cooker quite durable.

The cooker base is 45.7 cm (18 in) x 30.5 cm (12 in). The main rear reflector is the same size. The glass bowl enclosures are 21.6 cm (8.5 in) in diameter and 11.4 cm (4.5 in) tall.
