ABSTRACT
New protocol to test solar cooker is being proposed. The earlier tests measured only the thermal efficiency. There is an urgent need to look into other important parameters of the cooker such as its stagnation capacity, cost per watts delivered, weight of the cooker, ease of handling and aesthetics. The proposal also aims at standardization of reporting the test results so that it can be easily understood by common persons who wishes to use one.
