Summers are here and we all know what that means; hot dogs. This food is inexpensive, full of protein and quite easy to make using a microwave or grill. However, if you don’t have access to these cooking devices then here’s a hack for you. You can use an empty Pringles can and heat from the sun for cooking yourself a hot dog. Check out the project below and let us know what you think of it.
First thing first; get an empty Pringles can.
You’ll need a straight edge or a ruler for drawing a rectangle on the can’s side with a permanent marker.
Next, use an X-Acto knife for cutting out a rectangle and saving the leftover cardboard for later.
Drive a wooden kebab skewer through the center of the plastic lid.
Next, you’ll have to use a drill for creating a hole in the bottom of the can so that the skewer can be held in place.
Place the lid on the can and then push the skewer through the hole.
Bend any leftover cardboard and then glue it to the can’s bottom side. This will ensure that it remains upright.
Add a layer of plastic wrap on the rectangular hole to make sure the heat remains inside the can.
Now simply stick a hot dog onto the skewer and enjoy your DIY solar cooker.
