Abstract: Amid numerous sources of energy, solar energy possesses calibre to combat energy requisite for various sectors. A lot of significant research work has been carried out on solar energy to maximize its applications and efficiency of available designs. Among many applications, cooking is the one of the dominant application of solar energy. Other than basic design of box type solar cooker, solar collectors are employed in solar cooking system for the feasibility of more effective cooking. This manuscript inhibits various cooking system based on solar collectors like FPC(flat plate collector),ETC (evacuated tube collector),PDC(parabolic dish collector), PTC(parabolic trough collector), fresnel lens based collector and scheffler reflector type collector. Solar collectors based cooker designs render compatibility of cooking regarding cooking load, cost, cooking type, ease of operation and cooking time.
