My friend, Elizabeth wants to know if her new cooker might work in her greenhouse in the winter time (when it is sunny, of course!)? It's not a greenhouse with overhead windows. It's a long workroom that runs all along the south wall of her cabin, with big, south-facing windows. We're far enough north that we don't exactly get overhead sun in winter time anyway, so would it work using sunlight coming in a south window? The cooker is glazed with tempered glass, so that's two layers of glass the sun has to go through. It would cut the light some, I guess, but on the plus side there would be no wind and the ambient temperature would be significantly warmer than outdoors. Has anybody tried anything like this? Do you think it might work, even if temperatures achieved were somewhat lower than what they would be under ideal summer conditions? In ideal conditions, this cooker can reach at least 275F, which is lovely, but I cook with considerably less most of the time in my cooker. If she can make even 200F there are some things that can work, and 225F can do almost anything. Think there's a chance?

Regards,
SharonID
