A solar dish collector has been designed, fabricated
and tested for its performance on 10-03-2015 in Salem, Tamilnadu,
India. The experiments on cooking vessels of coated and un-coated
with 5 Liters capacity have been used for cooking Rice. The results
are shown in graphs. The solar cooker is always capable of cooking
food within the expected length of time and based on the solar
radiation levels. With minimum cooking power, the coated pressure
cooker of 5 Liters capacity cooks the food at faster manner. This is
due to the conductivity of the coating material provided in the cooker.
