You can now save a fortune on your electricity bill … or not.
One of the things I love most about CES is the amount of fascinating gadgets I come across. I’m talking stuff that’s not a smartphone or a laptop. A solar-powered and portable oven, however? Well, that does the trick for me. GoSun’s Fusion electric stove has an integrated heating system that can heat up to 550 degrees F, making it capable of cooking a meal within 20 minutes — all with only sunshine as fuel. The company says the Fusion is five times more efficient than a traditional oven, and it it can cook food with the same amount of energy needed to power a lightbulb.
Thanks to its unique design, which uses a vacuum tube to hold the ingredients, the Fusion also gives you the benefit of being able to make meals that typically wouldn’t work well outdoors. For example, you can make or heat up some bread, or you can even do a bit of deep frying. In addition to that, the device can be paired with other green devices, like a powerbank to charge your phone or a 20 Watt foldable solar panel. Those, of course, are sold separately.
If you want a solar-powered cooler to go with your Fusion oven, GoSun makes one of those, as well. While the GoSun Fusion and Cooler are shipping to Kickstarter backers starting in April, the company says its plan is to make both devices available to everyone by summer 2019. You can pre-order the Fusion now from GoSun’s site for $400, with the cooler expected to be priced at $600.
