Benefits of the SPORT
Foods are Tastier and Healthier
almost every type of food: bakes/stews all meats, poultry and fish; steams
vegetables; bakes breads, cakes and cookies; cooks rice, beans, lentils,
and pasta. It is specially designed to maintain steady, moderate (210-260
F) cooking temperatures that produce tender, tasty and healthy foods
without burning. The Sport is like a “solar crock
pot.” Because no extra water is added, the flavors and vitamins
in the food are not leached out or diluted and flavors blend deliciously.
Also, because food doesn’t burn, “advanced-glycation end
products” (AGEs), are not produced and cancer risks are reduced.
The Sport is easy to use. These five, easy-to-use features of the Sport
free the cook to work or play:
1. Complete Kit
The Sport comes with all the accessories needed to cook, except the
food! These include:
- 2 - 3.4Qt. (3.0 L) black, enameled pots with lids
- 1 thermometer
with F & C scales
- An instruction manual (.pdf) that includes recipes
- 1 WAPI (Water Pasteurization
Indicator) that confirms when water is safe to drink.
The Sport is easy to transport and store. It weighs just 10 pounds and
is only 12 ¼” high by 27 ¼” long by 17" deep.
3. Minimal Re-Aiming
The Sport can be pointed towards the sun and left unattended for the
full cooking duration. Re-aiming is beneficial, but not necessary. Actual
cooking time depends on your location within your time zone, and the
season. In the winter, and when the sun is at a low angle (for example,
in the morning or late afternoon), re-aiming is particularly advantageous.
4. No Burnt Food
Cooking temperatures in the SPORT are often 210-260 F for locations in
the United States, and max out at 300 F in the equatorial regions.
The SPORT is designed to get hot enough to cook, but not so hot that
food will burn.
5. Wind & Moisture Resistant
The Sport is engineered to withstand the elements. All materials used
in construction of the SPORT are impervious to moisture. The broad base
of the Sport helps keep it stable in wind.
The Sport Saves Energy and Reduces Pollution
No electricity, wood or fossil fuel is required when cooking with the
SPORT. This helps save the environment and reduces pollution. More than
50% of trees cut globally are used for cooking fires. One family cooking
with wood produces approximately 7.6 tons per year of CO2 and damaging
smoke particulates. The Sport eliminates smoke pollution from cooking.
Recreational Uses of the Sport
Camping & Hunting
The Flameless Sport is safe for food preparation in areas where regulations
do not permit fires. Camp cooks can start meals, leave the SPORT to
do the cooking and go enjoy the great outdoors. Solar camp cooking
also saves the time and cost of getting firewood.
Picnics & At the Beach
The Sport weighs only 10 pounds, making it easy to transport to the
beach or picnic site, especially compared to charcoal or gas grills.
The Sport is also great for cooking or warming up picnic foods such
as hot dogs, brats, buns, baked beans, chicken, ribs, hot dishes and
Boating, Sailing & Fishing
The safety of fireless cooking is especially beneficial to boaters. Since
the Sport does not have to be precisely aimed at the sun to cook, boaters
can secure the Sport in a sunny location and cook while moving. The even,
moist temperatures of the Sport bake fish that is “to die for.”
And the construction of the Sport makes it boat friendly too. Its light-weight
makes it easy to handle. Its rectangular shape and wide footprint make
it stable and easy to stow. The plastic case, acrylic top, closed cell
insulation and stainless steel hardware are tough, non-corrosive and
not affected by moisture.
Barbecue, Patio and Gardening
The Sport is handy on the patio for cooking whole meals or for preparing
vegetables while grilling or barbecuing. The entire meal preparation
can be moved outside, reducing heat in the kitchen.
Virtually everyone loves eating corn on the cob. In the Sport, the even,
not-too-hot temperatures produce an amazingly tasty ear of corn, especially
when steamed in the husk!
RV & SUV Campers
In addition to all the other features and benefits, the tough, plastic
outer case and acrylic cover of the Sport easily withstands the bumps,
shakes, vibrations and wear and tear in travel and stowage.
