The All American Sun Oven Review

I purchased a NEW All American Sun Oven for our family yesterday. Yup. I had been saving my pennies since I first heard about the changes in the new oven from Paul Munsen when he came and visited us at Honeyville in Chandler.  Honestly, they haven't changed the design in 28 years and the new changes are ones that have really inspired me! 

For the next two weeks the only place in the world that they are available is through Honeyville! Though I work for Honeyville as their company chef, they didn't ask me to post this review. I'm just so stinkin' excited!! I don't think I've ever been more excited about an appliance in my life...and y'all know I cried when I got my first solar oven right?!
All American Sun Oven® is the easiest way to harness the power of the sun to cook, bake, dehydrate, or boil foods. Make delicious sun-baked foods while saving on fuel and money. With a solar oven, you don't need any fuel, just place in direct sunlight and you're ready to cook. When used correctly it can reach temperatures of 360° to 400° F in as little as 20 minutes.
Solar cooking with the sun oven can be achieved in everyday cooking while in your backyard, at picnics, during a camping trip, or in the event of a power failure. Since it doesn't use a flame to cook, their is no risk in burning your food. Using the sun oven on a daily basis can save you money on gas and electricity bills. At Honeyville, we stand by the importance of emergency preparedness and recommend the sun oven for every household.

Personally, I have used the original Global Sun oven many many years. After seeing and using the  All American Sun Oven all weekend, I can honestly say, without hesitation that it is remarkable! It makes focusing so much simpler. It gets hotter faster and maintains the heat exceptionally well. So far I've baked bread, a skillet fritatta and brownies...and I'm not stopping. Yes. I thought I knew a lot about solar cooking and I thought I had mastered the details, but this new oven has made it even simpler than ever before. 

There you go!

Always My Very Best,
Your Friend Chef Tess
