After a few hours of sun, the solar salt Insulated Solar Electric Cooker (ISECooker) can deliver up to 0.7 kWh of energy to the contents of a cookpot. In the first 2 minutes of cooking, the ISECooker provides an average ~5000 W to the food, resulting in “flash cooking.” Molten solar salt holds solar electric energy in an insulated chamber, allowing a user to cook in the evening, hours after the sun has set. A global group of collaborators is working to optimize the construction, dissemination and designs of ISECookers.
