Meet Solari, The Next-Generation Portable Solar Cooker

Solari is a portable solar cooker that lets campers, backyard chefs and people who often go on a picnic cook tasty meals outdoors. Solari was designed, developed and built by American designer Bodin Hun during his studies at Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan.


With this solar cooker, there is no need to gather or buy wood, charcoal or gas  that are widely used to cook food outdoors. Solari is totally fuel free and harvests energy directly from sunlight, serving as an eco-friendly alternative to barbecue or gas camping stoves.



In addition to being lightweight and portable, Solari is also very easy to use. All you have to do is to point Solari towards the sun and leave it to cook food for you. Solari can also be plugged into the wall socket and cook using electricity if necessary.


Solari is equipped with sensor that measures cooking temperature and sends real-time data via Bluetooth to a smartphone app. When the food is already cooked, you’ll receive notification via the app. Solari also has an insulating jacket to keep the food warm for later consumption.




According to founders, “Solari aims to be an accessible option that produces the least emissions than any other cooking technologies and to reduce the reliance on biomass fuels in developing nations, exposure to household pollutants and discourage deforestation and fuel gathering.”



Solari has become a winner of several awards including James Dyson Award, IF Student Design Award, ADI Compasso d’oro International.
