Nelson Environment Centre supports community and enterprise initiatives which offer eco-friendly products and services that also enable our community to become more resilient and sustainable.

One product which also uses a plentiful local resource, Nelson sunshine, is the Sunflair solar oven.

The Sunflair uses the sun’s ultraviolet rays, converting them into infrared rays and trapping them inside the oven to heat and cook your food. We’ve had a go at cooking vegetables, frittata and meat stew at the Nelson Environment Centre as well as using the oven at home to bake bread and biscuits, roast chicken and dehydrate autumn fruit like apples and pears. The oven heats up quickly in the sun, can get up to around 66 degrees Centigrade in 10 minutes and rise to a maximum of 130C.

The oven and cooking pots weigh approx 1.5kgs and pack into a shoulder bag easy to carry with you, great for camping and picnics. It’s simple and quick to set up and take down so can be used anywhere there is sunshine, regardless of the outside temperature. Great for use at home in the back yard to save on power too.

Kate Rowland, New Zealand’s agent for the Sunflair solar oven, offers you a $5 discount on the price below if you mention Nelson Environment Centre when you purchase a Sunflair and a further $10 will go directly to the Nelson Environment Centre.

The prices are: Standard $159.90                                 Deluxe $189.90

All info and recipes can be found at www.sunflair.net

To purchase, contact Kate at kate@sunflair.net
