Dear Student

Concave minor would be best suited for use in solar cooker. As it is a converging mirror and would converge suns heat radiation at one focussed point.

Thanks

Concave mirrors are used in solar cookers. This is because they are the only type of mirrors that reflect sunlight to a single focal point. If you use a convex mirror for your cooker, it will not work since they do not have a focal point.
