If you want to do some Earth Day cooking that is good for the environment and for your wallet, you might want to consider investing in the SolSource solar cooker. This ingenious contraption uses the sun's energy to barbecue, grill, steam, bake, broil or fry any kind of food. The SolSource converts up to 80% of solar light it comes into contact with into heat for cooking. This is a massive improvement over solar panels, which usually convert only about 15% of light into energy.

The SolSource is designed to reflect light from the sun and redirect it into the base of its included cookware, which is situated within the device's large reflective panels. This technology effectively warms the bottoms of pots, pans and other cookware. However, the reflective heating panels are not warmed, which makes the cooker safe to touch even while it's engaged in some delicious Earth Day cooking.

The SolSource is not just energy-efficient but incredibly low-maintenance, as it doesn't require expenditure on fuel or specialized cleaning materials.
