The GoSun Sizzle is our fastest and most powerful solar oven, ever. The Sizzle combines the Fusion tube and cooking tray with electric back-up and deploys a massive, acrylic, parabolic reflector that folds up for storage. Reach temperatures that compete with fire, without the drama of smoke, emissions and dangerous flames.

Great oven with a catch
The sizzle is very well made (Canada) using premium components. It is highly efficient and very easy to use. It has one major flaw which is the cooking tray of the fusion oven. The grey plastic collar can’t handle the heat the sizzle generates and it is starting to deform. I used the sizzle for the 1st time in Sothern California at the end of November and the grey collar of the cooking tray started to show signs of melting at 85C / 185F (water boils at 100C). The collar will increasingly deform after a couple of cooking sessions. The grey collar of the cooking tray is made out of a grey thermoplastic which could cause off-gases to come in contact with the food. The sizzle is simply too powerful for the thermoplastic. GoSun should offer a version of the tray for solar cooking with metal parts only. The existing tray should work fine as is with the collar when used in electric back-up mode. I sincerely hope GoSun will read this feedback and offer 2 versions of the tray in the future. I will keep the sizzle and try to retrofit the tray to a non-electric metal only version (keeping the silicon).
Love the Sizzle!
The Sizzle can do most anything! A half package of bacon cooked to a crisp, or six bone-in chicken thighs at once, or family-size chili or beef stew from scratch... right now I am roasting raw cashews. I love this sturdy, blazing hot, well-designed oven! The capacious Fusion cooking tray also works beautifully in it (except for the plastic end cap, which I've reviewed separately; I think the Sizzle overpowers it.) I haven't used the backup DC cooking system yet but sunlight cooking is a dream. If GoSun could invent a desalinator unit to work with the Sizzle this would be a perfect worst-case-scenario backup too.
This is a game-changer! Using the Sizzle on our back deck keeps the house cool and the clean up easy. Late start to dinner - bring inside and plug into the powerbank we got with our Chill. One word - AWESOME!
Man can this thing cook! Debated between the Sizzle and the Fusion - since we are home bodies we went with the Sizzle and couldn't be happier! 5 stars if you can make a carry case - we want to show it off!
