Prototypes of the Solar Funnel Cooker were tested in Bolivia, and performed well. Brigham Young University submitted a patent application, mainly to ensure that no company would prevent wide distribution of the Solar Funnel Cooker. BYU makes no profit from the invention. Steven later learned that a few people had had a similar idea, but with methods differing from those developed and shown here. Steven has works to disseminate this design so it can be used to capture the free energy of the sun - for camping and for emergencies, yes, but also for every day cooking where electricity is not available and even fuel wood is getting scarce.

The reflector is shaped like a giant funnel, and lined with aluminum foil. (Easy to follow instructions will be given soon.) This funnel is rather like the parabolic cooker, except that the sunlight is concentrated along a line (not a point) at the bottom of the funnel. You can put your hand up the bottom of the funnel and feel the sun's heat, but it will not burn you.
