What is Lytefire 5?

It’s solar energy concentrator using 5m² of mirrors for pro and semi-pro use, intended for food cooking activities, such as baking or roasting. Its power is equivalent to that of a wood-fired oven.

The heat is drawn directly from solar radiation. Sunlight reflected by mirrors converge on a pane of glass which allows the sunshine to enter the oven.

The heat is then diffused by convection. The mirror system is designed to follow the path of the sun during the day.

The Lytefire 5 & 11 Deluxe are fabricated in France according to EU standards.
