Description: Build your own reflector cooker (hot plate) in a weekend. Includes fold-out pattern, instructions, and recipes. Cooker reaches 650 degrees within minutes, and is portable and lightweight. No fire, no smoke, no pollution - you can grill, fry, steam, or boil.

The full-size pattern with instruction book guides you through building a reflective hot plate cooker using locally purchased supplies. Total cost will be $20-$25. Simply cut out the pattern, trace onto cardboard, and assemble. This cooker uses a circular curve rather than a parabolic curve, and a series of wedge-shaped pieces for the reflective surface rather than trying to mold a compound surface. This makes for easier construction, and most importantly, results in a 6-inch hot spot instead of a pinpoint for better cooking and more even heat. It will reach 650 degrees F within minutes and only weighs 3 pounds. The cooker is capable of frying, boiling, steaming, poaching, and perking coffee. Also includes recipes from StoveTop Pizza to Poached Salmon on a bed of Greens. Very portable and efficient. You can also cook inside with sun coming through a window.
