When Solar Cookers International (SCI) formed in 1987, an early action was to publish a simple, illustrated guide to building and using simple solar cookers (Figures 1 & 2). These cookers require less than 16 Euro worth of supplies to make. They enable families in many countries to reduce their use of firewood, charcoal and kerosene for cooking by 0 to 60 percent per year.
Now in its 10th edition, the booklet includes diagrams of models that can be built for less than 4 Euro in supplies. Many thousands of copies of the booklet have been sold. Free copies have been sent on request to ten thousand organizations worldwide - small self-help organizations, schools, women’s organizations, health and development groups, local governments, and national government agencies in countries suffering the effects of deforestation.
