Cooking off the grid: GoSun Stove

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Like the idea of doing things off the grid?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Want to whip up a hot meal without burning fuel of any kind?   A company called GoSun Stove will let you do just that.   It is on the market with the GoSun Sport, a tube shaped cooker with metal reflectors that unfold to capture the sun’s energy.   You can cook a meal in twenty or thirty minutes or so on a fairly sunny day.   Yes it is remarkable and does work. Founder Patrick Sherwin….

 “You’re basically cooking inside a thermos and our unique little design is just a little seven pound package, so it’s portable, collapsible, easy to take anywhere.  And again, just twenty minutes will be all it takes in the sun to get a meal made for two people.”

It takes a little practice to get the GoSun Sport aimed properly, but once you do, things get cooking.   It sells for about 280 dollars and a larger version…the GoSun Grill …is in the works that will let you cook for as many as eight people.   There’s more at GoSunStove.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
