  1. That would be awesome! Here in sunny Fla. we could use it a lot!

  2. Sorry for the “teaser”! This had to be published before it was ready and it auto-posted to Facebook. We’ll post it again when the details are spelled out!

  3. I’m “prepared” to win! :-))

  4. Anne Dixon says:

    So want one of these but the link will not open to let me register. Help thanks

  5. The link is fixed now, sorry about that!

  6. All registered and waitin on the goodies! LOL

  7. It would be great to win one of these!

  8. It would be fun to fire this up in the front yard and create a neighborhood intrest!

  9. Anne Dixon says:

    Thanks for the fix…really want to make bread in a sun oven….

  10. Oh imagine how good the home made bread would be if baked in this. No odd smell from chemicals or burnt on foods stuck in the bottom of it. To take it camping with you and bake a loaf of bread out in the woods (I go camping for a week at a time usually lol)

  11. I pinned it, tweeted it, submitted it, facebook shared it on multiple survival pages :)

  12. We are beginner preppers and a sun oven will be a wonderful addition to our prepper supplies. :)

  13. Hell yea! I’m gonna cook me some squirrel if I win one!

  14. Lisa Layton says:

    Looking forward to learning more about these.

  15. Ahhh! What a great contest! I’ve wanted a sun oven for so long.

  16. John Gilbert says:

    It was posted three times without the link?

  17. John Gilbert says:

    I’d take it out to the Capital Reef field station and give it a whirl.

  18. John Gilbert says:

    I think it’s a facebook thing.

  19. Phil Burns says:

    hmm. i’m not sure what it’s doing. i shared it to several of my pages and groups – maybe it was some of those and you saw them for some reason but didn’t get a link because you aren’t a member of them?

  20. Phil Burns says:

    yeah, facebook does some really weird stuff

  21. John Gilbert says:

    And it’s a bit confusing. Is there any way a person can know if they qualify? I assume they aren’t getting the messages if they haven’t liked or subscribed already.

  22. Phil Burns says:

    If you put your email address in and you’re already subscribed to the newsletter, it tells you. If you’ve already like the page, it tells you. You only have to qualify once for all our contests. I’m not sure where the confusion comes in but i really want to know so i can make it easier

  23. I want to try one of these for making jerky.

  24. I would use it as a normal cooking tool just like my slow cooker.Of course when we have power outages, it will be another way to cook without electricity.

  25. Sky Wilde says:

    Oh yum…jerky, what a great idea!! I would like to do some dehydrating in one. Have a large clan…so one of these would be so welcomed!!

  26. Carol says:

    Why wouldn’t any prepper be thrilled to win any one of these items. I for one, would feel fortunate to add any of these items to my list of items.

  27. I posted this on my wall, to my local FB group and local yahoo group. Personally, it would be a wonderful addition to my preps and give me an additional method of cooking.

  28. I would be happy to receive any of these items. I am learning to be grateful for all of have and for anything that might come my way

  29. I posted this to my wall and to my FB and yahoo local prep groups. Personally, it would be a great addition to my preps and give me an additional method of cooking.

  30. John Gilbert says:

    Maybe it’s the redundancy. Or the lateness of the hour.

  31. Yes I really do! Heather

  32. Therese says:

    I just shared this on my FB page. Here in SoCal, we have many hot and sunny days left this year. I would love to keep the kitchen cool, and spend more time outdoors. A solar oven is a missing link in my preps.

  33. I would love a solar oven all summer long we never use our oven because
     it just bakes our house plus living w/o the added use of gas/ power to run the oven is a super plus!

  34. I would love one of these!!

  35. Tina Boldt says:

    would love to win one… :)

  36. Brad Graves says:

    Shared! This even coincides with the Preparedness Pro Blog: Set a goal to pass long ONE self-reliance tip to someone else today. You just never know who’ll receive it with gratitude.

  37. Just finished our 3 month food supply…hoping to get a Sun Oven to help cook all that food :-)

  38. I just shared this Link on my Facebook page. Thanks for a chance to win!

  39. I just shared this on my Facebook wall. Thanks for the chance to win!

  40. I’ve spread the word! A sun oven would be great – drying racks would come in handy too!

  41. posted this to my wall and to my FB and yahoo local prep groups. Personally, it would be a great addition to my preps and give me an additional method of cooking. For some reason, I can’t post on the APN page??

  42. Robin Armstrong says:

    I shared it on my blog. I enjoy my homemade solar cooker and a Sun Oven would be a fantastic upgrade!

  48. This is a great site with lots of information! Would have been great to have a sun oven when we were without power for a week.

  49. Dinah Walton says:

    I’m just beginning to learn this preparedness stuff! It is very impowering!

  50. I can’t afford a sun oven yet =( I would Love to have one tho, I have found recipies for canning with a solar oven!

  59. Bert Accardi says:

    I spread the word on facebook

  60. TheSpyHunter357 says:

    Shared on my Facebook page and I started a thread on GLP.

  61. I’ve never actually used a solar oven.  I made a solar hot water heater when I was in the 4th grade.  Since then, solar power has always been a dream of mine, but hasn’t been economically feasible for me.  Even if I don’t win one, I’m going to reverse engineer one from multiple plans I’ve seen online.

  62. lola bruesch says:

    we are rv living so this would be a great help for baking and cooking in the summer as it gets really hot fast in our little home on wheels lola

  63. Ansley says:

    I linked your post to my blog. I am a new “prepper” and looking forward to getting started. My husband has been talking about this for months!

    I have wanted one of these for a long time, but it’s just a little over my budget!

  76. Shirley says:
