Here is a short video showing how I converted an old satellite dish into a highly effective parabolic solar cooker. In this video I cooked two eggs which tasted delicious.
The parabolic solar cooker was made using chrome reflective vinyl, which has a self-adhesive backing and offers a superb mirror-like finish.
