You'll find here a translation of an Idcook press release.

One of the major news of Idcook has been the presentation of the solar barbecue or solarkocher, a home appliance that enables cooking on the grill in meetings with friends without any kind of fuel, thereby eliminating the inconvenience posed by having to dispose of coal or the necessary fuel for heating the barbecue and dirt produced by the use of such fuels. Of course, there is the emission of smoke into the atmosphere from the combustion of coal (except the smoke from the own food).

At the moment, Idcook has presented two main models of solar barbecues, one of them is the solargrill Cookup Inox, both manufactured in the form of the parabolic antenna. The main reason for this curious design is that its concave shape is that it allows you to capture the Sun's rays and keep them inside, allowing that during the time that remains exposed barbecue temperatures remain around 200 degrees Celsius, one temperature more than appropriate to enjoy a good barbecue.

The solar Idcook barbecues are designed even to be used during cloudy days, as the light reflecting their reflectors is stored for a while and is possible its use. Of course, if you are going to go out on the field during a cloudy day is necessary to ensure that solar barbecue works, because if you aren't it won't be possible to reach the right temperature to cook.

Cookup and Cookup 200 are the two models of solar barbecue which currently sells Idcook, with good prices for both models. The most recent model of the two, Cookup 200, began to make between 2010 and 2011 was awarded the Janus of l'Industrie of design, from the French Institute of design. Both can be mounted in barely 10 minutes anywhere without using tools. Their reflectors allow that in an hour its users are enjoying a power under the same conditions and with the same quality that were using a conventional barbecue, but without the own discomfort resulting in having to rely on fuel for their proper functioning.

Several models of solar cookers and solar ovens complete the range of portable appliances related to food based on the use of a clean and sustainable energy of Idcook, as well as other small technological devices of daily use which have nothing to do with the kitchen but also based on solar energy.Choose the model that you like and that fits your needs, but above all that solar cooking of your choice use as a way to preserve the environment. Idcook is also leader of solar oven in USA with
