The new Global Sun Oven review

new sun oven

When asked which solar cooker oven I recommend, I always mention the Global Sun Oven. It was the very first solar oven I owned and it shows plenty of wear and tear. It’s more expensive than other versions, but its designers came up with creative solutions to common issues that made solar cooking more challenging than it needed to be.

I talk about the benefits of solar cooking and the importance of having a back-up method for cooking and heating water in this episode of The Survival Mom Radio Show.

Now, this oven has been re-designed with a few more bells and whistles and the interior can now easily handle a 9×13 pan, which is the most popular size baking dish, at least in my house! The All-American Sun Oven is available only in the U.S., and it makes cooking by the power of the sun easier than ever.

First, the oven is 20% bigger. It can accommodate that rectangular baker you love and bake 2 loaves of bread, side by side. This improvement is a very welcome one.

The oven’s glass door is thicker and has a better sealing gasket. Together, these improvements will provide hotter cooking temperatures and, more importantly, shorter cooking times. The All-American Sun Oven’s page says that this new version of their oven will cook a 2 1/2 pound roast in 1 hour, 20 minutes and a chocolate cake in 35 minutes. (Be sure you pre-heat the oven by setting it out in the sun at least 15-20 minutes before you place your baking dish inside.)

Once I learned how to align the Sun Oven with the sun in order to maximize the cooking power of the sun, it was easy, but the All-American makes it even easier with an E-Z Sun Tracker. With a glance you can determine if your oven is situated properly. This will help your food cook more quickly.

If you’ve been looking at solar ovens and wondering which to buy, the All-American Sun Oven is a winner.

I’m excited that for a limited time, you can buy the All-American and save up to $70 on a package that includes:

  • One  All American SUN OVEN®
  • New SUN OVEN® eCookbook & Emergency Preparedness CD featuring 600 recipes, hundreds of pictures, video clips and much more which has been developed by Cook’n, the award winning and #1 best-selling recipe organizer.
  • Multi-Level Dehydrating & Baking Rack Set (set of 3 racks w/1 roll parchment paper)

I lived in snow country for 31 years and many times we were without power, sometimes up to two weeks. I always tried to keep Sterno in the cupboard, but that was only good for a short time. This would be ideal for being without power for a longer time.

    I would really enjoy cooking meals for my family in this oven, and helping protect the environment as a bonus!

    Thank you Survival Mom!

But we camp a lot and cook on a camp stove and open fire. The kids would really be into trying out recipes with this oven. What a great way to expand the possibilities if there’s no power!

  248. The best sun oven on the market.

  249. I teach both canning and basic prep classes (along with DH); we do not charge – we simply teach; I would love to try this and incorporate it into my teachings. Just can’t afford to buy one right now, or I would.

  269. Wow…That’s a great prize.

  270. Please enter me in this drawing. Wondering if this would work inside in a sunroom. Winters in Iowa can be brutal. We always seem to have sunshine though. I have a sunroom with south facing windows as well as west facing windows. Don’t know of a sun oven would heat enough outside in the bitter cold-but would it work in a sunroom?

    Would love to try.

  271. I’ve been wanting one of these, now I’m glad I waited for the better size! Thanks!

  272. Thanks for this chance to win one! We live in California with almost constant sun and I would to have something on hand like this! You never know when I’m going to need an alternative cooking method.

  273. I have been reluctant to buy one of these because of the price. Winning one sounds great.

  274. What a wonderful prize! Always searching the sales and wishing!

  275. Here’s to hoping! Assuredly I could and would use this. God Bless!

  276. I’ve been using a foil lined dashboard shade, a tripod and a dutch oven to solar cook. Your choice has Everything I’ve wished mine could do. Please, please pick me!

  277. With the arrival of 90 plus degree heat lots of sun to cook with!

  278. Yes, PLEASE! New prepper – need help!

  279. I love that you can bake 2 loaves of bread at the same time. This would be great to use during our hot Georgia summers!!!

  302. I tried to make one and failed! Would love to have the real deal!

  303. As much as I would love to have one, I would bet that there is someone else on your “list” that would never be able to buy one. Surprise them.

  304. What an offer!! We’ve tried 3 different ways to make a solar oven but can’t get over 180* even on a great day. Oh, to bake a cake or cook that meat. Dreaming!

  305. Hi!
    I just found your website, and really like it. I have gleaned many great ideas from it to supplement other similar sites. I wish I had kept the solar cooker my grandfather built years ago, but didn’t. Wow, if we only had foresight decades ago!
    This solar cooker would be great if I won it. Otherwise, someday I’ll have to buy one, if I can ever get that far down my list!.
    Thanks for being here with so many great ideas!

  306. I would love to have one of these, it’s been on my “wish list” for a few years now.

  307. This is so neat!

  308. I am really interested in Solar cooking. I’m looking forward to learning more about it.

  315. Ok, as a girl from AZ, living in AL, this is PERFECT! We have so much sun in either place I should be dark brown by now lol! I love the idea of being able to use this while camping, and just to save a little on the ever growing electric bill :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  316. This is really cool. I can see it being pretty handy for camping and stuff.

  317. One of the few things we need

  318. Been a fan for a couple years now, looking forward to the giveaway!

  319. We have just started learning about prepping and alternative methods of energy and equipment. My six year old daughter loves gardening and baking. She loves when we use candles instead of the house lights. This would be a wonderful adventure to take with her. Baking by sun energy. Right up her alley. Plus, this would be the first major piece of equipment we would have since we started educating ourselves on life change events. Thank you for this opportunity.

  320. What a great giveaway. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one. Good luck everyone.

  321. I have wanted one for so long! Would love to win one!

  333. Would love to have this for my family! We could definitely put a sun oven to good use! Thx for the chance! :)

  334. I was just researching these today! I was having a hard time trying to choose which one to put on my wishlist but your description has definitely made it easier. I live in northern Washington state, so I’m not sure how effective a sun oven would be here, but I’d love to give it a try. Thanks for all the great information you post!

  335. Thanks for all of the updated information on the Sun Oven. I would love to win one of these!

  336. I would LOVE to win one!!!!

  339. Would love to have this!!

  340. Nice size and man, that would come in handy around here with all of the sun we get. Not to mention keeping the kitchen cool. And how great to camping?!

  341. We cooked in a solar oven with our Girl Scout troop. This one is the “real deal”. I want to try it out!

  342. On the list!!! Hubs says we can make one, but his time is just about non existent.

  355. I have had cookies made in one of these when I was on a solar tour….would love one

  356. My mom had one but when she passed away, my sister gave it away. It was fun to use and let us cook on days when it was too hot to turn the oven on indoors. I would love to have one again.

  357. Would love another option to not turn on the oven!

  358. This would be an awesome addition to our emergency kit!

  359. I would love one because I hear everyone raving how good everything tastes when cooked in the Sun Oven.

  360. Would love to add this to my preps…

  361. A Sun Oven is definitely on our wish list. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  362. I am so impressed with the new solar style of this oven. I love that it can accomodate a larger baking pan for goodies or the main course. I also appreciate that the glass is thicker and it bakes hotter. This would be wonderful to own.


  363. I have been wanting a solar oven for years. Would love to win this!

  364. Got my sour dough starter ready, just need the oven to bake it in. Thanksll you do Lisa

  373. What a fabulous give-away! Would LOVE to win! Thanks!

  374. Would live to learn to cook in o e of these!

  375. Would love to have this solar oven, it would work great to sun dry my produce here in soggy Oregon! Just even getting the recipe book would be neat. It would help make the best use of our “U-Pick” farm savings if it could be dried using the sun, lets you get on with the other chores without having to watch everything! I would really love and use this oven big time =)!

  376. I have always wanted to try using solar and this oven just sounds amazing. In Nevada there are many people who have to live off grid because of where the jobs are, totally not by choice. I would sooooo share this little prize with my friends who all live off grid and we could all learn together.

  377. Would love to have this.. please enter me in drawing.. Thanks

  378. Ooh boy I would love to win!

  379. I would use this ALL the time, not just save it for an emergency!
    and the fact the it is made in the USA makes it a treasure!

    Thank you for all your wisdom and fun contests like this.

  384. Awesome giveaway! Would love one of these.

  386. oooh! Hope I win! I have wanted one for awhile!

  387. I would love to add this to my supplies. Thanks

  388. Excited about the new size! Thanks for the give away.

  389. Just started experimenting with solar power. This would be a fun new adventure.

  390. I’m trying to learn solar cooking this summer with a homemade cardboard & tin foil oven. So far, and sadly, I can only get the temps high enough to soft cook an egg and that took 4 hours. I dream of a Sun Oven of my own.

  391. I love the solar technology. The more things we can do with solar power the better. This oven looks like a lot of fun too.

  392. I’ve been researching these and have been wanting to get one!

  393. Would really like to give one of these a try. Good luck all and congrats to the person that wins.

  394. Super!

  395. What an awesome addition to being prepared! Thank you for the opportunity ~

  396. I am 72 years young and have been working for three years to get better at raised bed gardening, raising livestock, and methods of storing foods. I just bought ten acres and am going off the grid with solar and wind generating electricity. A solar oven was an expense that I thought was outside my budget. It would bring it all full circle.

  397. I’m in

  398. I bought a Global Sun Oven just for baking bread and love it. The larger size and new features of the All American sound wonderful. Thanks for the information and chance to win.

  399. This is on my wish list

  400. Cool giveaway! I would love to upgrade. I bought the global version last summer. It is great, but the new size and help to position sounds even better. Two summers ago I made a diy one from the instructions here http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles/radabaugh30.html on the first use it made it to 350F, about 300 after that. I think it would be even better if I had preheated the cardboard before gluing the aluminum foil down. The cardbord shrinks causing wrinkles which makes it less efficient. Hope that helps someone else trying to build one!

  401. Wow! This looks and sounds amazing. What a wonderful addition to my cooking options this would be.

  402. I’d use this every chance I could – love to lower my carbon footprint!

  403. I borrowed an oven like this about a month ago for a high school environmental science class demonstration. We got water to heat up to 85 degrees Celsius (well past pasteurization temp) very quickly, then we made s’mores. (Not an ideal use for an oven like this, but it was my first experience and I didn’t know how much to expect.) I would LOVE to have one of my own to experiment with during classes and then to USE (for longer periods) while away from school (in nature or at home).

  404. this is on my wish list, have been wanting one for a long time. thanks for the chance to win one

  405. Just waitin’ for the power to go out so I can try the new Sun Oven. Amazing Giveaway!

  406. would like to give it a try!

  407. Would love to have one

  408. Would love to have this solar oven!

  409. I have not seen or heard of anyone I know use one of these. I would love to give it a try at one of the summer get togethers..would be a great alternative to standing over a stove indoors.

  410. Love it, preppers dream

  411. Thanks for the chance. What a blessing you are to people who are trying to learn how to prepare for whatever life throws at them.

  412. This would make a great addition to our household.

  413. Very cool giveaway! I’d love to have this oven! We have lost power in the past and typically use the grill or camp stove, but an oven would be an awesome addition to our “preparedness pile”! Thanks for the opportunity!

  414. My last post seams to have disappeared. Decidedly worth re-posting for. Thank you.

  415. Would love this! A great way to go green and not have to rely on the electric company!!!

  416. I have been working with my grown daughters to show them how to live without modern conveniences . This would be a great gift to give to them.

  417. I would love to have this oven! Could even come in handy on those long hot summer days.

  418. Thank you for your contest. I would love a sun oven.

  419. Thanks alot!

  422. I would love to win a sun oven! Thank you!!

  423. I would LOVE to win this! With a large family to feed, and living in the hot south, it would be WONDERFUL to be able to cook this way, and the larger size (9×13) makes it ideal for us!
    THANK YOU, Lisa, for all you do to educate and inform us! Your give-a-ways are just the frosting on the cake!

  424. Would be great to have !!

  425. Always thought about making one, but havne’t got around to it. Winning one would solve that problem.

  426. Love love love this!

  427. Great giveaway! Thanks!

  428. Would love to win this! We moved off-grid about 3 1/2 months ago – and a solar oven would be icing on the cake! Because then I could actually BAKE a cake! LOL

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  429. Please accept my entry. Thank you!

  430. Oh what a great prepping product!

  438. I have always wanted one of these! Maybe its my lucky day…

  439. I really would like a solar oven!

  440. I have been using a sun oven for almost a year and absolutely love it. It is amazing what you can do with it and when you take out the amazing roast or whatever it is cooked to perfection you can hardly believe it. I would love to have the larger one because I cook for a large family at times. I now have three of my children’s families and two grandaughters using a sun oven because I am constantly bragging on it.

  441. I have always wanted one. Looking for alternatives just in case.

  442. Great review and awesome giveaway. Would love to add this to my preps and can see myself using this often.

  443. Awesome giveaway!!! Fingers crossed :)

  444. I’ve had a sun oven on my list of needs for a long time, but could never afford it. This is such a great give-away!

  445. A great Solar Oven is on my list of preparedness items. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!!

  446. I have always wanted one…fingers are crossed that I get this one.

  447. I’ve been looking at getting a sun oven–saw someone canned butter with it. Sounds interesting! Thanks for offering this up as a contest!

  448. Please accept my entry,thank you!

  449. This is a very exciting giveaway! Would love to win!

  450. I’ve been looking at these for a while now, definitely on my wish list, but out of my budget for now. Great give-away, thanks for the opportunity!!

  451. Just starting to get ourselves into off-grid mode. This oven would be such a blessing. Thank you for all you do!

  452. We lose power here in the foresty state of CT. A Sun Oven would make those power outages so mucho the bearable. Thank you for giving one away – so generous!

  453. Much needed here! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  454. Boy, that would really be great to have! Our family could really use a sun oven.

  455. I have always wanted a Sun Oven!

  456. Oooo, pick me, pick me please! :)

  457. Would love to win one and to try it out in Hawaii

  458. I’ve spent the last several months learning to bake breads and other yeast based doughs (gluten free and regular) and all baked goods in fact. I would love to try to conquer this new form of cooking as well. It could be a real asset in the summer (to not heat up the house by turning on the oven) as well as a general means to save money on fuel costs and not utilize any of the earth’s natural resources. I love the idea of harnessing the power of the sun. It’s a win-win no matter how you look at it. Thanks for the opportunity to win this.

  459. We cook in Dutch ovens , but, I would love to have one of these so you don’t have to worry about starting a fire. We are in a drought here and can’t have fires. This would be so awesome to have and not heat up my kitchen. 110 degrees outside in the summer here. Thanks!!

  460. Thank you Lisa for all of the great information you provide on your website. I LOVED your book and gave a copy to my mother who has always been intimidated by the whole preparing notion. The new global oven looks great with the increased capacity and EZ sun tracker. I would love to win one to begin using the sun as a fuel source for everyday cooking and emergencies :)

  461. Me! Me! Me!
    Congrats again on 4 years of making a HUGE difference!

  462. I am a fairly new prepper – a little more than a year, now. The Sun Oven has been on my wish list for quite some time. My focus has been on prepping to stay-in-place, but I certainly have a BO plan, too. Some of my tools, though, I have practiced with and put into use, just so that I will be able to use them in a time of need without having to learn a new skill under survival pressure. I would put my new Sun Oven to instant use and learn to use it and enjoy it. Even if I am not chosen as the winner, I will probably be adding this item to my stash very soon – it just seems like an essential tool! Thanks for the reminder!!

  463. New to you site – it’s great and so much info
    Now I have more to learn. Cooker looks awesome

  464. Looks perfect

  465. Living in the Valley of the Sun, I think I need one.

  466. been following you for a while now hope I can try out the oven

  467. Such a wonderful solar device. Would be really great to begin my survival journey with one of these ovens
    Know I could’t go wrong with one of them since I live n hi-desert with triple diget temps. I wish me LUCK n winning this!

  468. A great idea

  469. I have been saving for a Sun Oven and really like the 9×13 size option……my 3 mo. supply is growing slowly, and winning this prize would really make my day!

    Thanks for all the practical information, Lisa. It is good advice even if we never face a major catastrophe!

  470. This is on my “to get” list! Thanks for the give away.

  471. I’d love to try one out!

  472. This would be a great addition to our preps.

  473. Another great alternative cooking method!

  474. Wow, that would be fantastic! It’s on my wish list but money is tight enough that we aren’t there yet. Thanks for this chance!

  475. What a great device. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  476. I would love to have one of these… have been drooling over them for several years…. economy is so slow not enough left over to purchase one :-( but it is on my list!

  477. This is definitely on my wish list!

  478. I just found this website the survival Mom, it’s awesome . I’ve never seen this Solar oven, but is sure makes sense. Use it for camping and in a disaster!

  479. Happy Aniversary Survival Mom. Thanks for all of your help.

  480. I hope I win the oven!! :)

  481. My son and I just finished making a water still (3 foot hole in the ground covered with plastic)…we got two cups of water! We thought, now that we can get water, wouldn’t it be nice to cook outside, too? We are slowly working our way to being self-sufficient! This oven would be perfect for the bread he loves which we currently bake inside with home-ground wheat. Thank you for your consideration!

  482. I love the larger size of the new solar oven. When you have a big family it would be so nice to be able to cook full sized casseroles for the family in lean times!!

  483. I’ve been wanting to try a solar oven for a while now!

  484. This is on my wish list. Thanks for your great website!!

  485. All American Sun Oven renews American innovation with a technology that rivals the “kitchen match.” I consider it a “must have” in an effort to challenge todays’ energy needs, and to show the path to a new energy future.

  486. I have always liked these

  487. You have been “my gateway” into trying to be more prepared for things in life. I always seemed to have an unsettled feeling that I should be doing something to help my family and others should there be a disaster of some sort. I remember when I first heard of your book and website through a couponing blog. I felt at home right away and it was great to learn all I could from all of the hard work and effort that you put into preparing and your website. All of your organizing and lists have been a good fit for me in the way that I like to approach projects. You have made preparedness seem so cool and feminine that it has been easy to reccomend your website to other women. I have bought 4 of your books because I keep giving them away! Thank you so very much for all that you have done to help not only myself but others.

  488. I would love to win this oven. Has been on my wish list for a while.

  489. My wife would love this. I would be a hero if I got it for her.

  490. I love my sun oven but I love the upgrades that have been made to the American Sun oven. I think if I won I would gift my current sun oven to my mom and enjoy the bigger inside space and cool sun site of this model. So awesome!

  491. Our family would really enjoy a sun oven and use it a lot! Thank you!

  492. This is on my wish list! I would love to win this!

  493. What a great contest! I’d love a sun oven.

  494. WOW! I just saw this contest and almost missed it!!! I have eaten cookies someone baked in a sun oven and they were yummy ~ I would love to win this :)

  495. This will be a blessing to anyone that wins it. I would like it but I know who ever gets it will LOVE it!

  496. I’m not sure you will even consider me since I live in South Africa, but this would be an amazing opportunity and I have to try. I have been planning to buy one but have only looked a cheap ovens which produce far inferior results, but that would be all I can afford. I have even bought some cheap black pots to use in an oven but the oven is still out of reach financially. Why do I need one, well I live in Africa and we get sunshine every day all year round thus my intention would be to use it daily as the price of electricity has increased fourfold in 5 years and is to continue increasing by 8% a year for another 5 years. Thus we have had had to implement electricity savings at home which is good for the environment but hard on the finances. My intention is to use the solar oven for most of my families cooking except for perhaps some frying or grilling, thus having a quality and efficient product would make our lives easier.

    Please consider me and I would be happy to use the money that I meant to use for the cheap one to pay any additional shipping costs, to own a solar oven of this quality would be simply WOW

    Also being prepared in Africa is not an option – it is a way of life. Apart from the cost of electricity 3 and 4 day power failures are a reality, thus anything that allows one to be more self-sufficient makes a difference, which is why I read your blog.
