A composite solar box cooker was successfully constructed with locally available material. The use of solar energy to meet the important need of energy apart from being a viable alternative is also accomplished without the environmental and health problem associated with most other fuels. This development is unique in terms of its simplicity and very light weight. It is the result of this paper that was carried out by designing and constructing solar cooker using locally available material. In building a solar cooker, the consideration of heat principles are heat gain, heat storage and heat loss. After constructing, according to the testing of solar box, The average cooking time for eggs is about 1.5 hr, for rice about 2.25 hr and 4 hr for prawn. Solar cooking is simple, safe and it is convenient to cook food without consuming fuel or heating up the kitchen and cook at moderate temperature and this helps to preserve nutrients.
