Prototyping cooker - 1997

Almonte, Ontario (CA), Fraser Symington and his son Tracy attempt to develop an ‘upward reflector’ which would accept the light coming horizontally from the Helios and reflect it upwards to the bottom of a frying pan or a pot of boiling water. They try silvering tempered glass, they try water cooled mirrors and they try mirror polished stainless plate. Home made silvering burns off, water cooled mirrors break the second anything drips on them and polished stainless turns blue and non reflective in the heat.
