Solar Oven Science Project for Jess
Solar box cookers often make use of insulation in their wall cavities. Studies have shown however that this insulation is not very important since most of the heat is lost through the glazing. Insulation in solar box cookers with the inner box/outer box construction is usually accomplished by lining the space between boxes with foil. Foil insulation may have patches but the foil should make a complete cover. Wrinkles are no problem if pressed flat. Air bubbles behind the foil make it easier...

A temperature of 250° F (121° C) is hot enough for almost all kinds of cooking. Remember that water cannot get hotter than 212°F (100°C) unless you use a pressure cooker. Thus if you are cooking food that contains water, it cannot get hotter than this either. Conventional cookbooks call...
