It’s not an electric grill that runs on solar power. and tends to be used for cooking meat quickly. a grill pan. Heat transfer to the food when using a grill is primarily via thermal radiation. You’ll actually get some use out of it afterwards. That’s why this new solar powered grill has me weary.

Either can be used to produce tasty results.CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION A. The most important aspect is high heat management. Some of the principles it demonstrates are: .

Renewable energy: solar power B. Statement of the Problem The price of almost all commercialized or local products continuously increasing. C. This projectwill serve as an eye-opener for those who don’t have a grillin their backyard who want to convert their old shoe box carton into a hotdog grilling machine. Energy transformation: light to heat 3.1. Optics: focusing parallel rays of incident light through theuse of a parabolic mirror. Some people cannot afford to buy a grill to roast or to grill foods.And this is a big aspect to be considered in budgeting things. 2. Significance of the Study This study aims to find out if an old shoe carton box can be useful to make an alternative cooking machine. provide information to students and teachers with respect to the recycling of cartonbox or old shoe box and it will also serve as motivatingfactor for the schools or institutions to direct their students and to further .

the people can grill food without buying those expensive grillers. .strengthen their capabilities for developing old carton box into a cooking grilland otherprocesses to maximize the recycling of old carton box. the outcome of the study will provideempirically based information topolicy makers in Ecologicalrecycled Waste Management.Converting these non-functional cartons doesnot only support RA 9003 but italso opens an avenue to develop technology in thecommunity.Furthermore. (RA 9003) junk cartons areusually stocked or thrown out elsewhere .This is a less expensive project because all of the materials needed can be seen inside our house. D. Our group want to propose a product that is environmental friendly and can suit to the budget that we have in our everyday life. By using this. This project can really help people who cannot afford to buy grillers. Scope and Limitations The study focus on grilling food through solar heat.

They are used while grilling orroasting meats.gas or other means of heat. the following terms used in the study are hereby defined.A wrapping substance to keep food.     Grill . Tin Foil .

The Solar-Grill uses a flexible mirror to aim the sun’s rays at the black “barbecue cup” to get it nice and toasty.Chapter II REVIEW OF RELATEDLITERATURE Proper grilling doesn’t come from propane or charcoal. A small metal "smoker box" containing wood chips may be used on a gas grill to give a smoky flavor to the grilled foods. with most falling into one of two categories: gasfueled and charcoal. it’s literally a grill that cooks with the sun.

Cardboard box ( We used an old rollerblade box ) 2. . Aluminum foil. (Better to use magic tape. Grill rack and plastic wrap. Some masking tape. Materials/Equipment: 1.Chapter III METHODOLOGY A. 3.) 4.

Cut out the box. Cut the top flap. Scissor & Black Construction Paper or Black Cloth B.Procedure 1. Using the permanent marker trace a square over the top of the box. . leaving the back (top) end attached so it becomes a flap.This top flap will become our reflector for the sun light. Pencil & Permanent Marker 6. leaving about a one to two inch border.5.

Use nontoxic tape or glue to secure the foil in place.2. . 3. Line the bottom of the box with aluminum. Line with aluminum and Black construction paper. Secure with nontoxic glue or tape. Line the inside of the lid and reflector with foil. Secure it with nontoxic tape or glue. Line lid with foil. Take the black cloth or black construction paper and place it over the foil.

Angle the reflector to where the most sunlight is reflected into the box. Place over in the sun. Place the grillin the sun.4. Leave the box in the sun for a half an hour to an hour to warm up. Secure with nontoxic tape or glue. It may take a little longer depending on the heat and how clear the sky is in your area. . Cover the square hole we cut earlier with the plastic wrap and over the front of the box with the black cloth or construction paper. 5. Tape the pencil to where it holds up the lid in place.
