Sun Ovens in the Utah News

Natalie Barron with Bee Provident Supplies in Lehi, Utah was at the EarthFest at the University of Utah during Earth Day 2009. While at the event, Fox13 reporter Scott McKane came to cover EarthFest and ended up interviewing Natalie about the Sun Oven. It was aired later that day on KSTU Fox 13.

For those living in Davis or Weber County, you may be interested in an article from the Standard Examiner, "Baking while the sun Shines." Jeff Demoss interviewed Paul Munsen with Sun Ovens International while he was here on tour. Demoss also interviewed Delois with Survival Solutions in Layton, who sell the Sun Oven. It is a great article, and if you are interested in reading it, click here.

Both Bee Provident Supplies and Survival Solutions are dealers of the Sun Oven, and there are also other dealers throughout the state.

News segments in Utah media

Mike and Natalie Barron (Bee Provident Supplies) did a great segment this morning on KJZZ at 9:25 a.m. They had set the Sun Oven up around 8:40 a.m. and by showtime, the oven had reached 320 degrees. They had cooked some bread over the weekend and that was used in the segment to show that you really can cook in the Sun Oven.

The Barron's are from Utah County and recently became a dealer of the Sun Ovens. To find a Utah dealer in your area, click here.

The weather in Utah is supposed to be in the low 70s for the next few days, so it is perfect weather for cooking in the Sun.

Great story on KSL's Studio 5

Paul Munsen with Sun Ovens International did a great job on a five-minute segment on KSL's (Channel 5) Studio 5 at 11 a.m. yesterday. Prior to the segment, he cooked some cinnamon rolls in the Global Sun Oven, then as the segment was winding down, he and the host, Darin, got to bite into them. They were delicious.

Click here to view the segment online.

It was a great segment because it showed the practical uses of the Sun Oven and how easy and fun it is to cook in it. I know the weather is a little "unsure" at this time of year, but knowing that the Oven works, especially with a hot Utah summer just around the corner, it's a great time to look at getting one.
