GoSun Grill Offers Solar Cooking at Night

Summer brings outdoor cooking and eating, and while most of us thoroughly enjoy a meal out on the patio or in the yard complete with grilled food, not all of us are good at it. Every year there is a story or two in the news about a fire with or without injury caused by a grill. And then there are people who live where grilling is either impractical or not allowed, such as apartments or other housing complexes.

What those people need is a GoSun Grill. Its name is a little misleading as it’s not actually a grill; rather, it’s a solar oven that can be used practically anywhere and at any time. It can bake, boil, or fry, and its capacity is large enough that you can do those things for a meal that will serve up to eight people. It requires no fuel, using only the power of the sun to cook your food day or night.

Wait. How does that work? The GoSun Grill has a thermal battery that will store the sun’s power until you need it to power the oven. So not only can you cook when the sun is out (as you can with many other solar grills such as the SOLGRILL), you can also cook after dark or on a day when the sun is hiding behind clouds.

Obviously you won’t necessarily be able to bake, boil, and fry simultaneously, but you will be able to do all three without any more effort than loading GoSun’s tray and raising the reflectors. And it can be used almost anywhere since it generates no heat. You can even fold down its reflectors and move it while you’re cooking without worrying that your food won’t get done (you’ll have to be careful, of course, especially if you’re cooking something with a great deal of liquid).

The GoSun Grill is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, where with about a month left in their campaign they stand at approximately 1/3 of their funding goal. If you’d like to see one of these on your balcony or patio, you’ll have to pledge at least $349.00 US (an estimated $200.00 savings off retail price). Their estimated delivery is September of this year.
