How to Build a Solar Hot Dog Oven in a Pringles Can

You don't need a fire to have a good cookout. As long as it's at least 80ºF outside, you can cook a hot dog inside an empty can of Pringles potato chips. Instructables member Cat's Science Club shows you how.

The first step is to eat all of the Pringles. Some people might say that it's enough to just empty the can. But I say that any job worth doing is worth doing well. Eat all of the Pringles. Then cut a window into the can. Skewer a hot dog and place it inside. Glue a layer of plastic wrap over the window to trap the heat inside.

On a good day, you may get an internal temperature as high as 170ºF. Over time, that's enough to cook the hot dog to perfection.
