When I wanted to heat up part of my lunch, something you'd put in a microwave or oven, and the sun was shining, I'd go get our black wheelbarrow with the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tub, put my lunch in it, turn it under the sun, and set a single-pane window or large piece of glass over the top. It would heat up to 200 degrees inside the wheelbarrow in minutes and then usually hovered around 250. It made a great oven and could also be adapted as a dehydrator. Today they sell solar ovens constructed with the same materials. But you don't necessarily have to buy one to have one. Again, if you can forage, adapt, and invent, you can increase the longevity of your survival.
