Mission and Vision—Clean, Easy and Safe: GoSun was founded with the goal of making cooking easier, cleaner, and more accessible for customers in both developed and emerging markets. GoSun builds a line of fuel-free ovens that are ready for action, incorporating durability and convenience into a package anyone can utilize.
The Problem—Lack of Innovation: Cooking outdoors hasn't changed much in 350,000 years. We are still putting a piece of meat over a fire and letting most of the heat escape. Modern technology is impressive, but cooking gets little innovation; we also need to get serious about stopping our addiction to burning fossil fuels.
Another Global Problem—Fire: According to the United Nation’s Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, over 3 billion people are in need of a cookstove that does not emit harmful emissions. The UN has identified that up to 4 million premature deaths are caused by pollutants from wood and solid fuel cookstoves during daily cooking routines. Cooking can put enormous pressures on families trapped in a cycle of poverty, trying to gather enough firewood everyday to cook.
Solution—Effective Solar Oven: GoSun is focused on making incredible outdoor cooking appliances to fuel and inspire clean living in the developed world and providing practical, fuel-free cooking solutions to people in developing nations. GoSun has developed a line of innovative solar cookstoves that can bake, boil, or fry almost anything, just by using the power of the Sun. It’s clean and safe: there are no fossil fuels or wood, no smoke or emissions, no hot coals, no open flames, no explosive gas, and no grease or soot.
Future Solution—Hybrid Solar Electric: GoSun is developing a solution to cook anytime, anywhere, using back-up power supplied by electricity. Initial testing shows the GoSun eGrill to be ten times more efficient than a traditional oven. With minimal marketing, over 1,000 customers have already signed up for the hybrid option.
