This tough Sola Kooka has an outside skin of electrostatically painted steel and is able to withstand considerable use, while still maintaining its shape. It reaches a temperature of 165 °C (329 °F) and features two seat positions, one for winter sun angles or low morning/afternoon sunlight, plus a flatter summer sun angle or high midday sunshine. Both bottoms are flat and sturdy so the food is not on any sort of swing system, always ensuring a stable cooking surface. Its tough, looks good and so far, this design has been in use all over Australia for 15 years with no re-calls, and with a little care; it should give a lifetime of use to their owners.
This design has been so successful and is starting to be noticed both in the cities and in the country, as a dependable survival instrument.
