Believe it or not, there is a good environmental reason to buy a few cans of Pringles : You can easily turn them into solar cookers.
All you need is a wire hanger, some strong cutters to cut the hanger and maybe some black paper, tape and glad wrap and an empty Pringles container.
First untwist the wire hanger and cut it to a length about 4 inches longer than the Pringles can. Poke a hole in the top and bottom of the can. Remove lid and slide hanger through the can with bent end of hanger at the bottom end of can. Place hot dog pieces or alternate hot dogs and tater tots down the coat hanger wire and replace top.
Place your cooker in the hot sun for about45 minutes to and hour.
You can also take that a step further and wrap your can in black construction paper and cut a vent slit down the center and then cover that slit with plastic wrap.
Repeat the same steps with the coat hanger wire and place in a sunny spot.
We have also “cooked” pizza rolls in our cooker. Anything you could skewer would work.
