Great Idea on KickStarter but A Ripoff


Only 20 minutes to a meal, safely sizzling up to 550°F, the GoSun Stove is the first truly practical fuel-free cooking solution is how it is billed on KickStarter.This is actually a great idea. My problem with it is the price, $279. The evacuated tube in the center is actually from a solar hot water heater and cost about a dollar a piece for a full length one, this is a half length. You can buy a complete solar hot water heater from Alibaba.com that has like 20 of these tubes, plus a water tank for around $300 plus shipping. At most this should cost around $30. Just goes to show if you have a good marketing pitch KickStarter is a good place to fleece people.
