Model LD180

The solar parabol cooker consists of two main parts: a stand and a parabolic-shaped reflector. The upper end of the stand is the potholder (a pot ring in this case). The lower end of the stand is a tripod that is placed on a flat and hard surface.
  • diameter of the reflector: 180 сm
  • depth of the reflector: 29 сm
  • focal distance: 69.8 сm
  • reflecting surface: aluminized reflecting strips
  • six segments reflector
  • stainless steel stand
  • average power: 1800 W* at 700 W/m2 sun radiation
  • max power: 2500 W* at 1000 W/m2 sun radiation
  • weight: 20 kg
  • the steepest position height of the reflector: 137 cm
  • diameter of the potholder (pot ring): 26 cm
  • package: 95/ 85 / 12 cm
  • price: 279 BGN


The food vessel (called for simplicity a pot ) must remain continuously upon the focus spot (or the focus spot must remain upon the pot), so as not to interrupt the heating process. For that purpose, the reflector is being rotated in a horizontal and vertical plane, following the sun in its daily movement from east to west. Refocusing (reorienting to the sun) should be done approximately every 20 minutes.
The rotation in the vertical plane is accomplished by the control lever, which is mounted on the reflector back.
If the sun is low above the horizon, the position of the pot must be further adjusted by moving the pot ring in direction of the reflector.

A question arises: how do we know that the parabol cooker is properly focused? This question we have answered in detail in the Blog.

*  The average power for all models of parabol cooker is calculated for direct solar radiation of 700 W/m2. The maximum power is calculated for DSR of 1000 W/m2.
