Woo hoo! I am going to try it out tomorrow with baked potatoes. It took me all day to complete since I had one sick child and one clingy teething child. But they did pretty good even for that.

Wish me luck! I will have to post pics tomorrow.

Wow, how amazing, can't wait to see your photos. I am planning to make one too this summer (not long to go now).

If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution. :

Yes it was very simple. I made the box type oven. I used a few sturdy cardboard boxes. Lined the inside with foil, covered the outside with black tape (although non toxic paint is good, I just didn't have any on hand). Made 2 smaller boxes lined with foil, to fit inside the oven, and a lid. I am on the hunt for the right size piece of glass to set on top while cooking (I used plastic wrap and just wasn't happy with that).
