Solar heating device like a solar cooker uses reflector to reflect sunlight to a small area where the cooking container is placed. The light from the sun is actually focused at the container which gets heated thereby cooking the food.
Solar cooker works on the principle to convert sun light into heat energy and the heat energy trapped is used for cooking.
