Energy consumption for cooking is unavoidable, though there is continuously increasing the fuel price as well as scarcity of exhausting fossil fuels. Because cooking is the prime priority of human life all over the world. Cooking contributes a major part in sharing of total primary energy consumption in India. Hence it needs an alternative energy source for this purpose. Solar cookers are the best substitute for, heating, cooking and pasteurizing applications. In this paper a review has been made to study the existing literature in the field of solar cookers with the latent heat storage system using PCM.
