You might have heard about a campaign started by a 12-year-old to market the EZ Bake Oven to boys as well as well as girls. Well this week’s idea for the next big thing is not unrelated to that.
Solar ovens have been around for a while. Used by campers, but also by people who live in places where electricity isn’t always a given, or reliable, or where energy costs keep people from being able to use an oven on a regular basis. Now, a restaurant in Chile is taking that to the next level, cooking all of their food in solar ovens. And tourists and locals can’t get enough of the food. It does take longer to prepare the food since a solar oven doesn’t get as hot as a conventional restaurant appliance, but they really save on energy costs.
But what do you think? Is this green energy solution the next big thing? Vote in the poll and tell us what you think.
