This paper examines the effectiveness of solar cookers in day to day life. Energy is the basic requirement of mankind all across the world. In developing countries like India, energy requirement for cooking is 36% of the primary energy consumption. The fuel used by the population of India in rural or urban area is leading to deforestation and continuously polluting the environment. The fumes emitted by the burning of these fuels causes health problems such as burns, eye disorders and lung disorders. So there is a need of an alternative method for cooking is very urgent for the developing country like India. Solar energy is the most promising energy source among all the clean energy technologies, which is available to us, in abundant and at free of cost. It is possible to use the solar energy heat for cooking process. So the need for thermal storage in solar cookers is important
