Solar ovens are designed to cook food by using sunlight and reflective materials to generate heat. The infrared and ultraviolet light waves produced by sunlight carry a lot of heat, and if continually trapped in a small space they can raise of the temperature of the air so high that it can cook meat, vegetables, bread, and other types of food. Solar ovens have been proven to be safe and effective under the proper conditions, and recent years have seen the development of more advanced ovens which cook more easily while still using only heat from the sun.
