This design, while simple, has a number of shortcomings:
- The reflectors will not stay in position with even the slightest wind.
- When the sun is not straight overhead, in order to make use of the reflectors, the entire box has to be tipped up to face the sun. This causes the cooking pot(s) to slide around and spill food.
Rather than have four reflectors, it is much more desirable to have a single rear reflector such as in the "Minimum" Solar Box Cooker design.
