Author during last forty years designed, constructed, studied and published various models of cookers like conventional, hybrid solar electric, solar Electric Microwave and Multipurpose Solar Electric oven including dryer etc. These models have been disseminated at different communities in and out of Costa Rica in the form of publications, lectures, newspaper, TV program and workshops etc. During last few years electrical measuring and controlling devices have been added to measure the electrical energy consumed during cooking and control the device from office or outside using smart switch and smart phone. In this short communication, these devices will be mentioned in detail. With these hybrid gadgets, one cook, bake and roast meal using solar and electricity if required during cloudy period. This will help in reducing conventional fuel and cooling the only planet we have.
