ABSTRACT

In this study, a low cost cooking oven capable of using electric and solar energy was developed from locally available materials. The effectiveness of each compartment of the oven was tested with respect to the source of energy, temperature and time taken to bake a sample of food item. The result showed that as the temperature increases, the food takes lesser time to dehydrate and bake.
