Sharon Clausson has been interested in solar cooking since the eighties. She has experimented with several designs of her own, as well as constructing many of the other designs available to be able to test the efficiency and practical value of each.
Her most recent project is a solar panel design cooker offered as a kit, the Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light. It is quickly assembled, and can be taken apart and used for place mats, and also a reflective aid for a lantern.
