Three Commercial Ovens

Global Sun Oven

SOS Sport Oven

Parabolic Solar Sizzler

Forecast is SUN... and FUN


Mark your calendars Sat. May 7. 2016


Or make your own!

Campaign Sign Oven ...the best way to reuse campaign signs!

Do It Yourself Cost with donated signs $10 and they work fabulously. Use at home or take camping.

For $5 more add an oven thermometer. Cinamon Rolls made from scratch cooking above. Very little these ovens can't do.


Cardboard Cooker

(plans are here--requires a square box or cutting a box in half and then trimming ..We now focus on campaign sign cookers-but sill have a few square boxes. Contact us to get one.
