If you have a hankering for a roasted hot dog but you don’t have any fire, and you left your solar oven behind, you might still be in luck, assuming you have an empty can of Pringles laying around. This quick and easy DIY will show you how to re-use the empty can to heat a hot dog (or anything else you can skewer) up to 170 degrees in the sun.
First you need to outline the panel on the can
Cut the panel out and save the piece of cardboard to use as a stand.
Get a skewer and poke it through the end cap.
Drill a hole in the bottom of the can to place the other end of the skewer into.
Voila! A DIY hot dog roaster is finished.
Use your cut out panel to make a stand, and set it in the sun, where the highly reflective interior will warm up to a toasty 170 degrees.
