Global sun oven launched

Kathmandu, May 7 :

Enva Solar Power International has launched Global sun oven in the market.

The oven has been devised to meet up to 70 per cent of the needs of a family of six to eight people in a developing country, entirely with the power of sun. Even though it is called an oven, food can be boiled, st-eamed, roasted or baked at co-oking temperatures of 360° F. This ruggedly built solar appliance weighs 9.5 kg and will last more than 20 years, according to a press release issued today. It is currently used in over 129 countries.

Over two billion people use wood, charcoal or dung as their primary cooking fuel and the social, economic and environmental impacts of these are significant. The Global Sun Oven has been carefully engineered to provide an alternative to using wood and dung.

A number of features have made Sun Global Oven uni-que and different from other b-ox cookers,” states the release.
