'''Flatbread''' in its many forms (tortillas, ingera, etc.) is an important staple food around the world. [[Panel cooker]]s and [[box cooker]]s do not get hot enough to cook flatbreads, although they could be specially designed for the purpose. [[Parabolic_reflectors|Parabolic cookers]] are the most likely candidates as well as cookers like the [[Devos Solar Cooker]] and the very large [[Scheffler Community Kitchen]].

The Ethiopians and Eritreans use a clay griddle for preparing their ''ingera''. This type of griddle is not conductive enough to allow it to be heated hot enough and evenly enough by most solar cookers. We have received two reports of the use of cast iron griddles made in China. These worked much better than the ones made of clay. When ''ingera'' is cooked in the traditional way over a wood fire, the correct temperature of the griddle is {{Degree|180}}.
