Present box type solar cooker is only successful in sunshine hours. In the present research work, a solar cooker has been developed which can work even during Non-Sunshine hours and can be installed in the kitchen itself. In the present work, the system a system has been developed where heat is transferred to cooking material in solar cooker in non-sunshine hours from Acetamide, a PCM, which store energy during Sunshine hours. PCM is heated by hot water which is heated in a flat plate collector using annular evacuated glass tubes. It was possible to achieve the temperature of 63.6°C during non-sunshine hours and was enough to cook the food stuff.
