This attachment can be carried out by the user as no technical skill is required. The mounting is made entirely of iron. The vertical axis comprises two concentric water pipes, one of which is inserted about 40 cm into the ground to improve stability. It has two angel-iron feet at right angles welded on and resting on the ground. The horizontal axis passes through the tubes of the rotating frame. The rotating frame is also made of iron tubes(water pipe at the bottom, thin walled conduit pipe for the sides) with a building iron ring-similar to those used for the mirrors to act as pot holder.

The cooker requires adjustment after every 30 minutes towards the sun. 0 hours respectively. Moreover two dishes can be cooked simultaneously in the cooker which may take slightly longer time as compared to single dish. Thus both lunch and dinner within the period of sun up hours can be prepared. The food remains warm even at the time of dinner. The performance is not effected by the wind and dust. 15 BOX TYPE SOLAR COOKER. Mohan Parikh and Rahul Parikh of Bardoli[61], India have also designed a similar cooker with both the inner and outer boxes made of metal and the inner box with vertical wall.

5 Fixed Soil-Cement Spheriodal Reflector Solar Cooker In this type of solar cooker[17] a spheriodal depression in the ground is lined first with a mixture of soil and cement to stabilize the shape and then with aluminized plastic. The symmetrical depression is formed by swinging a SOLAR COOKERS 23 pendulum, or blade, fastened to a wire which is secured at a fixed point above the ground on a tripod. After the rough shape is made, a shallow layer of soil and cement mixture is placed in the depression, smoothed with the blade and wetted.
