Yes you can! Our original SolSource was tested in the Himalayas under cold and windy conditions. We have already tested SolSource Sport on a hill, in a valley, and at the quayside. The low profile and slick design of SolSource Sport helps it withstand windy conditions. Be sure to send us pictures if you take SolSource Sport to Everest Base Camp!
Summer time is prime time for solar cooking. With those long summer days come long solar cooking hours. But you can also use SolSource Sport in autumn and winter, depending on your location. You'd be surprised how early you can start brewing your coffee in the morning, and how late you can cook your evening meal with SolSource Sport.

How hot does my food get on SolSource Sport?
The SolSource Sport reaches 400°F / 200°C! This means you can pan fry eggs, bacon and sausages, boil water to make coffee and tea, or reheat food that you have prepared earlier.
As with any form of cooking, we recommend checking to ensure all meat is thoroughly cooked through before consumption.
How quickly can I cook a meal using SolSource Sport?
With SolSource Sport you can grill a delicious meal in 10-15 minutes in good weather conditions.
Can I still get the charcoal and smoke flavor with SolSource Sport?
Temperature is the key to the perfect steak. Grill between 285-325 F to achieve browning without burning, and you will get that seared meat flavor without the actual charcoal or carcinogens getting into your food. Learn more about the science of the perfect sear.
How do I clean my SolSource Sport?
SolSource Sport is easy to clean, just wipe the reflector with a sponge or rinse it down with water. If you've gotten grease splatters on it, just use a bit of soap or vinegar to remove them. We recommend using warm, mildly soapy water and then wiping dry with a soft cloth.
Is it safe to leave SolSource Sport unattended?
SolSource Sport is designed to keep the focal point of energy beneath the pot stand at all times. That said, if left in the sun, SolSource Sport will continue to collect solar energy. We recommend either covering it or removing it from the sun when not in use to make sure that the system is fully off.
Can you get burned or blinded from the reflection?
While the convergence point of the sun's rays is extremely hot, a grill with no flame and no fuel is much safer for you and the environment than other options. The reflective mirrors are cool to the touch, so it'd be pretty hard to burn your fingers. Furthermore, while we always recommend wearing sunglasses while exposed to sunlight, the SolSource Sport won't blind you, especially when there's a pot or pan on the metal stand.
How is SolSource Sport different from other solar cookers on the market?
The SolSource Sport is different than most other solar cookers because of its size, portability, and efficiency, and provides a completely new and much improved solar cooking experience for anyone that enjoys cooking outdoors.
How does SolSource Sport compare to the original SolSource?
The original SolSource was developed with communities in the Himalayas for everyday use, so the reflector is relatively large and the base is made of heavier material to withstand strong wind. SolSource Sport is inspired by outdoor activities, so it is made of much lighter material with a smaller reflector for portability and compactness.
Can SolSource Sport be used in national parks where charcoal or gas grills aren’t allowed?
The reason charcoal and gas grills is prohibited in national parks is the use of open flame, which is prohibited. As SolSource Sport don’t use any flame, we are certain SolSource Sport will be allowed in all national parks. However, we are still waiting to get this confirmed.
How durable is SolSource Sport?
With normal use, you can expect SolSource Sport to have a similar durability as other high-end durable sporting products.
All our products are designed for durability. To give you an example of how much we care about durability, our reflectors withstand 10 years of accelerated weather testing with <1% decline in performance. The rest of SolSource Sport is made from materials used in other high-end, durable outdoor sporting products.
