Did you catch the tip in the video about connecting an actual crockpot inside a thermal box to a solar panel? Be sure to buy a good quality crockpot though. Some brands will scorch food on the sides so it doesn’t taste good.

  1. Haybox cookers were popular in WWII and I use them myself. I have found very low watt slow cookers that hold up to 3lb roasts and use those on solar. I also use the black crock pot insert and lid in a solar cooker outside…works amazing.

    • How do people find low watt slow cookers? I looked a while back and couldn’t find them. I must have been using the wrong search term.
