My last message did not go through. Anyway, I added an animated gif at the bottom of the link at solar cooking. It is to help explain the procedure. I WILL be improving the animation, but it is good enough for now.
(I lost my gif animation software so i had to relearn it in different programs). There has been interest from India, from a top amateur American scientist and in this group so I am pleased so far.
Remember, it is a new class of solar cookers. So dive in and be a pioneer.
