Declare Your Energy Independence At Your 4th Of July Cookout

Declare Your Energy Independence At Your 4th Of July Cookout

Wondering how you can turn your 4th of July cookout into a clean energy affair? You may not think it’s easy. In fact, it may seem impossible for you to cook the food, keep the drinks cool, and clean up after the party, all without tapping into gas, ice, and water resources. But with GoSun, you can do it all and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time!

At GoSun, we provide solar powered appliances and cookware so you don’t have to compromise your commitment to clean energy while you cook. No more gas ovens or wasting water to keep your freezer cold: our ovens and coolers use the power of the sun to help you cook and preserve your favorite foods and beverages.

Because our products are solar powered, they’re perfect for your 4th of July cookout! Below are four of our favorites to help you plan the best “green” meal for your friends and family on the most patriotic day of the year in the United States.

1. Sizzle Solar Oven

The Sizzle solar oven is just the thing for you to whip up some hot, yummy grub
outdoors. It features an acrylic reflector that folds up for easy storage, but can generate up to 325 W of power. Even if the sky is overcast, your Sizzle can still cook a full meal. Its innovative vacuum tube technology can cook, boil, steam, bake, or roast food at temperatures up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit, plenty for any number of delicious meals.

Speaking of meals, the Sizzle handles 4-6 meals per load, so you can feed your entire family and then some.

Even though this oven is considered large, it is still light enough to transport. Weighing in at 22 pounds, with its longest side a little over 2 feet in length, you can easily fit it into the back of your car or truck. Transport it to a park or another house, and bring the food fun with you!

2. Go Portable Solar Oven

For an even more portable solution, try out Go portable solar oven. This little baby weighs only 2 pounds - 2 pounds! - and it’s longest side is 14.7 inches. It even folds up so you can easily carry it with you to the next Independence Day party on your schedule. The Go can go with you anywhere and will keep you going (pun intended) in your outdoor cooking exploits. Each load in the vacuum tube and cooking tray feeds 1-2 people, and cook time is about 20-30 minutes. This makes it the perfect oven for a small gathering or for whipping up some warm sides at your 4th of July shindig.

The greatest part about this product is there’s no need to bring your own generator or find an outlet to plug it in. That’s because it’s completely solar powered. No matter where you go, as long as you have an outdoor space and daylight, you can keep on cooking with the Go.

3. Chillest Solar Cooler

Whoever heard of a portable cooler that didn’t need ice? Well, now you have. The Chillest solar cooler uses the power of the sun to keep the entire unit nice and chill. That means no matter where your 4th of July celebration is located - in the backyard, at the beach, at the park, or wherever - your favorite food and beverages will stay cold.

Not only is the Chillest great at keeping things cold, it’s great at keeping things
organized. Its 45-liter capacity features two separate interior compartments for easy organization. You can also control the interior temperature using the cooler’s built-in compressor. And when it gets dark and you want to grab a drink or a snack midfireworks show, the inside lights up to show you its contents.

Want to take your cooler outside on sand, gravel, dirt, or concrete? The all-terrain wheels on the bottom can handle whatever you throw at them. You don’t have to hurt your back hauling the Chillest around, either. Its convenient handle allows you to pull it wherever you need to go.

4. Flow Solar Water Purifier + Pump

Cookout is yummy, but it can also be messy, thirsty work putting it all together. Water jugs are heavy, though, and the plastic with which they’re made puts a strain on the environment. As a green alternative, why not use whatever water source is available to you - hose, river, or rain - and purify it to make it clean enough to drink? It’s for this purpose that we developed the Flow solar water purifier + pump. This solar powered device is small enough to fit in a backpack, yet when fully charged it can filter and pump up to 100 gallons of water. Our three-stage filter system removes 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, and cysts, so that the water you end up using is safe for washing hands and dishes, and even for drinking.

The filtration process for the Flow is entirely automatic. All you have to do is charge it up under the sun, hook up the pump and place one end in the dirty water and one end in a clean vessel, and switch the device on. Instantly, the Flow will begin filtering the dirty water, sanitizing it and transferring it to the clean vessel. No pumping or straining is required on your part.

When the process is complete, you have nice, clean water that you can use to clean up after the party’s all done. You can also use it to provide drinks for your whole crew.

The Flow is easy to use, and it utilizes clean energy to produce clean water. Now that’s patriotic!

Cooking out this 4th of July without wasting natural resources doesn’t have to be a head-scratcher. Try our solar-powered appliances today!
