GoSun Go Ultra-Portable Solar Oven

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-10-14

Taking your meals on the go just got easier. Introducing the GoSun Go Ultra-Portable Solar Oven. Like previous designs, the GoSun Go uses the power of the sun to cook all of your food to perfection. The innovative design captures the energy of the sun and bounces it throughout the cooking chamber. This results in extremely even cooking for all of your favorite foods. In addition, you can choose to steam, bake, and even roast entire meals. The cooking chamber in the GoSun Go has a capacity of 14 ounces. This is plenty of space for a full mean. Additionally, it can also cook all of your food in as little as 20 minutes. Even though it uses the sun for power, the GoSun Go is just as effective on a cloudy day. The futuristic design can absorb the sun from anywhere as long as it’s outside.

I paid $119 US for mine, then another $14.95 Cdn upon delivery. Set it up. Followed all directions (I already have a sport model). 35 minutes later, the tube separated from the base. All the glue had dried up I guess. No way to reattach. Going to try to return it. Quality is not good. Very unhappy.

Gadget Flow Editors

Thank you for your feedback Margaret. Let us know how it goes with the seller regarding the return. Hopefully, they’ll be able to solve this asap.

I got our GoSun in New Zealand this week. I tried it out this afternoon to boil water and it works so well. It took about 45 minutes in the winter sun. I am really happy with it.

Hello. No one has gotten back to me still from the support email I sent. What is your ticket turn around time? Because I have emailed numerous times and have never heard back

Hello again, I am checking on the remaining items to complete my pledge. I received half of the pledged stoves but am still awaiting the remainder. I received a notification that an accidental double order was shipped and one was stopped in route then shipped back to the distribution hub. That second order was not an error but the second half of my 8 stove pledge (one early bird double stove and three normal double stove). Please check into it for me and let me know where we are at. The first 4 stoves are in good condition, function well, and came quickly.

@Ryan Winslow Blake sorry to read, since I got mine like several other backers, no classic move of not delivering at all. The major fault here appears to me a custom and delivery service problem. Better contact GoSun Service.

I STILL haven’t gotten mine, or any communication whatsoever about it. You guys know you can order these from REI etc? Thanks for sending them to the retail folks before your backers, GoSun. Real classy move. It’s companies like this that play on the sustainable angle to turn a profit. Jerks.

I received a USPS tracking notification on April 26, but it still appears that it is a preshipping label. It would be nice to get an update on your fulfillment progress.

@Erik @James @Diabetic Chris @Christa, Feel free to reach out to our Support Team with questions regarding product use: support@gosunstove.com or (888)868-6154. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to remove the protective film from the reflectors before use. Also, take care to adjust the product’s alignment to the sun throughout use. If the sun moves off-angle, you should move the GoSun Go with it to capture maximum sunlight. If that doesn’t improve your results, there may be an issue with the vacuum seal in your tube. If that is the case, please send a photo of your full tube to support@gosunstove.com. Our Support Team will help you determine the quality of the vacuum seal. If there is an issue, our Support Team will help you through it. @James, To register your product, go to https://www.gosun.co/pages/register. In the “Order Number” field, provide your Kickstarter Backer number. @Karl, You are correct, that gray coating should be removed before use. Users having trouble should refer to the GoSun Go User Manual. For additional guidance, send a message to support@gosunstove.com. @Aylaeh, Please check your Kickstarter inbox for information regarding this issue. @Tak Long Harry Cheung, Please send a message to support@gosunstove.com detailing both issues (Action Stand and Rivets). @Mark, Please check your email for further correspondence from our Support Team.

Barely an hour after I posted that comment and sent further emails to GoSun, I received a personal email with the promised shipping label. Here's looking forward to that refund, as promised.

Review from Kickstarter
GoSun Support informed me that they would send a "free shipping label" so that I can return this mess of glass and broken rivets back to their offices with a full refund. That was a month ago, on May the 7th. Just how long is your "Support Manager" going to be "out of the office?"

Just got mine in Australia today, haven’t got chance to test it yet because of the weather. For those who are not sure about the plastic film on reflectors, yes, peel it off, it’s written in the step one of the user’s guide. I guess I may be lucky that the tube of mine is intact and it’s coming with the cleaning brush. I do agree with some comments who said that the glues connects the tube and the mount is a little ugly, but it’s still in my acceptable range. But I am really not happy with that, when I opened mine, few pins that used for connecting the reflectors to the EVA shell were already missed or damaged, I’ve got photos of it. I am quite disappointed with the quality control of this product, but still hope it will works when I have time to test it.

Review from Kickstarter
Got my GoSun Go about half a month ago. With an extra 27€ (~30$) of import duty for Germany. So Shipment costs did climb to 70$. Bad Luck #1.
First tryout didn't do well. It was much to windy on that festival. Not a chance to boil water or stay focused to the sun. Bad Luck #2.
But: Never give up. Next festival is comming.

Review from Kickstarter
My Go Sun Go looks like it has a grey plastic coating that I haven't yet removed. I believe that I would be extremely reflective under this coating. It almost looks like it should not be removed. It could be that some haven't removed it and that is why they are not get the desired results?

I have not tried to boil water. I have been cooking with mine. It works great. Carrots and potatoes and onions got soft and delicious. I love it, love it, love it.

my gosun go didn't quite succeed in getting itself warmed after 3.5 hours as well even though i had it positioned in the dial. I think I Need an idiot guide to get this work...

Review from Kickstarter
Yeah im in the same boat as eric and james. In fact i went camping memorial weekend and spent the entire day from 8 am to about 4pm keeping it turned towards the sun with the dot thing perfectly alined. Nothing, barely got hot enough to cause pain when i stuck my finger in the water. The inner coating has all sorts of defects so i wonder if thats not the problem. Not that i can expect to resolve that problem... idk what to do and im having serious doubts with gosun.

@erik I'm having same results as you to boiling water. I only got it to work warm up hot dogs in my car only took 15 mins. I think we're doing it wrong cause down in the comments in ohio he boiled water. I read the directions can't boil water.
Erik Wheeler
Review from Kickstarter
Got my gosun and tried to boil water; angle is right with the sun, sunny day (no clouds) on both days. The first day after 90 minutes in the sun (it was 70s out) the cold tap water is hot but not boiling. On the second try, after 2.5 hours in the sun (it was 80s this day) the water still didn’t boil. Yes, I turned it to face the sun, yes the end cap was on, yes I followed all directions...and no, this POS still won’t boil tap water. Really disappointed with this product. If it had worked as promised, I was ready to get the big tabletop model.

@All, we are aggressively resolving the logistics error and will be shipping all remaining orders over the coming week. To anyone who has not received their shipment in the USA, we thank you for your patience and you will see something within two weeks.

Review from Kickstarter
Finally had some time off to really give this a try. I did pick up the "camera" attachment to let me use this on a tripod. - this makes the convenience of the Go-Sun 100% better - recommend this minor purchase, and great tip from Go-Sun. So I had some left over PHO in the refrigerator, so I went from the refrigerator cold to heated in about 45 minutes in 95* F day and sunny no clouds.

The tracking # that I got said that mine was mailed on april 26th and that as of May 7th it was currently in transit to the next facility. Nothing since then.

Backer #24 and have not yet received my shipment in North Carolina. I have emailed the company twice and have not heard a word. The last update said that most everyone has already received his or her shipment. There has been no update since. It is almost June now. Please send an update to your loyal backers.

Diabetic Chris
Review from Kickstarter
I wonder why so many people seem to think being backer #**** designates that they should have preferential service? Logistics controls who gets what when, and getting an error in there is going to complicate things.
On a different note i recieved my less than stellar gosun go on 5/5/18 and today (5/24/18) i finally got the tracking number shipping confirmation in my email. I would laugh at the absurdity of it, but cannot due to many reasons to be unhappy with gosun. Not really sure i would ever buy another or tell anyone else they should. Ive purchsed a huge rand tube online and man even without the reflector that thing is loads better, can actually boil water. Idk its sad that you help a company bring its dream to life but there are so many problems with their service.
Maybe on their next venture ill take another gamble, now that i know to have a few reservations in hand.

Backer #480 in NZ. Haven't received shipping info yet so guess I am one of those affected by this logistics error...

Thanks for your patience. We are still working through a logistics error made by our fulfillment partner and those who have not received their units should be seeing news in the next two weeks.

Hi,
I’m wondering if there is another update for the remaining deliveries? I’m in Australia and have not received any info on delivery at all. Please advise. Thank you

Review from Kickstarter
I've been trying to be patient but now Mid May has come and gone and I haven't seen anything of my Go-Sun Sport. I also realize that backer mid-2000's is low priority but the original promise was April then early May then mid-May. In Michigan the sun will be back below the equator at this rate. When can I expect my unit?
D. Wilson
Review from Kickstarter
WOW, I understand there may have been more backers than expected, which I view as a good thing. I'm seeing comments here that backers with numbers in the 2000 range have received their units, yet I have not heard anything such as a shipment date and I'm Backer # 503!! I live in the U.S., in San Diego, and saw another backer in my area received theirs. It seems odd that units would be shipped out of order. Can someone please advise, as the last update requested we be patient until mid-May. I tend to be a patient person, but you folks have my money and I have nothing to show for it. Thank you for any update you can provide.

This is started to sound like a scam. I just email your support email and replied with"Thanks for contacting GoSun Stove!
We're excited about the solar cooking revolution and glad you are too.
Your request (37061) has been received. As we are a small start-up, we appreciate your allowing us 72 hours for a personalized response from one of our support staff. Thank you for your patience in advance!" There are only 2,683 backers, how can there be 37,061 request. I think I've been duped. Shame on you.

@GoSun - Why is your customer support not responding emails? Why are you not responding here? My brother and I have not received the GoSun Go we pledged for. How many times do we need to request a tracking number? This is no way to treat your backers!
Frederik Leung Shun
Review from Kickstarter
Hi GoSun, I'm disappointed in your reply.
You shipped an incomplete GoSun Go package to me and your response is that I should buy the missing item myself?
I am a firm believer in your company and a owner of several of your products.
But from a customer support point of view I believe you still have ways to go.
I think there are many other ways that you as a company could have handled this other than sending me what you forgot to give me in the first place or telling me to buy the missing item myself e.g. by issuing partial refund or a gift voucher for a next purchase etc. It is sadly clear to me now that as a backer you're more interested in my money than satisfying a customer.
