Emergency Ovens for Disasters

I am serving in our church as the Emergency Preparedness Specialist – which means that I am trying to help the members of our church think about and prepare for disasters.

“When ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.”

 ~ Doctrine and Covenants 38:30

We all know that the electricity goes out in disasters.  We also know that we like to eat and no one wants to waste their food during a emergency.  I found these emergency food ovens and thought I would share the information. 

Emergency Food Ovens

 Click on the images or links below to view the step by step instructions on how to build either one of these yourself at home for future use in case of emergency power outages or even when camping.

Note: be sure to read some of the comments posted in the article: don’t use glue or tape on inside of box and use un-coated wires.

 What I love about these charcoal box ovens is they can actually bake at the same temperatures as our regular ovens at home.

Equation: 1 charcoal = 35-40 degrees F. Each charcoal briquette supplies 35-40 degrees of heat, so 9 briquettes will give us approx 360 degree oven. So just use the standard bake times.

I am so excited to try these!

What do you use or plan to use?
