Dear Student

Advantages of solar cooker:
(a) It is cheap and easy to handle.
(b) It does not need any fuel for cooking food.
(c) It is pollution free.
Disadvantages of solar cooker:
(a) It is very slow, takes long time for cooking.
(b) It is dependent on sun’s light, cannot work on cloudy day.
(c) The reflectors position need to be monitored so as it reflects the sunlight at the centre focused point of the solar cooker.
Yes-the places where sun’s energy not sufficient, the use of solar cookers would be limited

Thanks
