If there's one thing that any outdoorsy person is very passionate about, it's what they eat when they're out and about. Every person who loves to hike and camp also certainly thinks nonstop about the trail mix they packed or what they're going to eat once they get to camp. There's nothing worse than a lame trail meal when you've just exerted all that energy. There are also few things better than a new toy to take with you in the backcountry and backyard alike.
So delight them with something they haven't already walked by in REI a million times, or heard their friend that has every item of gear imaginable talk about. That would be the GoSun Portable Solar Oven Kit. Not only is this oven incredibly cool and good at its job– it's also on sale right now, for a limited time.
It's so cool (or uh, hot) that you might be tempted to gift one for yourself! It's also incredibly sustainable and arguably easier for camping and backpacking because you don't have to carry around any heavy containers of food. Your food also won't have that foul chemical smell, which is an added bonus.
Basically, it converts the sun's energy into heat and cooks your food in just 20 minutes, reaching temperatures up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. Though it uses solar heat, the reflector shields and exterior stay cool to the touch, so there's no fire hazard. It has a 12.5 fluid-ounce cooking capacity, which is perfect for a single portion. It also comes with a cleaning tool, go bag, and instruction manual.
With 4.4 out of 5 stars on Amazon, you can trust it's a great buy. The GoSun Portable Solar Oven Kit normally costs $124, but for a limited time, you can get it for only $78.99, which is over 30% off.
