In rural areas, families do not often have access to butane gas and women are looking for wood to cook. Forests are often threatened by the production of charcoal. Housewives are exposed to the emissions of these fuels. Thus a problem of public health arises. The aim of our work is a part of the development and popularization of solar cooking as an alternative to the abusive use of fossil fuels. On the other hand, it allows to protect the environment and contributes to improving the living conditions of housewives. A prototype was developed at the Center of Studies and Researches on Renewable Energies (CERER) in Dakar, Senegal. This is a solar cooker box double glazed and inclined lateral faces, provided with a flat reflector. In this paper we present the results of testing of the prototype. The climatic data in this study are obtained at the CERER weather station. Several series of tests were carried out under natural sunlight. They concern empty tests of the cooker and tests of water boiling and cooking. During these tests the temperatures at different points of the cooker were measured at different sunshine and at different times of the year. The results obtained by different tests are satisfactory and encouraging especially as solar cookers are easy to build and test prototype gets to reach temperatures favorable for healthy cooking different food products and dishes.
