Solar Cooking
Last edited: 25 August 2009      


The Heatmoth is a robust galvanised frame which mounts and rotates freely around a central support. It uses very durable stainless steel reflectors washable with dishwashing liquid. It is very easily moved and positively locked for tracking the sun. The Heatmoth has a wide cooking area that can accomodate two pots side by side and the cook can comfortably work at the pots without the sun reflecting in his face. There is also a quick release mechanism for removing the reflectors in high winds

News and recent developments[]

  • October 2013: Crosby Menzies reports that the Heatmoth is no longer being produced since suitable materials were not available.
