A Better Focus Co.
Safety
Respect the energy developed by the Hot Spot dish.   Remember that the
hot focal point will slowly move as the sun tracks across the sky.  Slight
adjustments to the dish position will be required every 15 minutes or so.   
While in focusing mode, never leave the dish unattended.   We have
improved the seals so that dishes now will hold vacuum for several days or
longer.   An unattended dish must always be considered as a fire hazard.
Always replace the dish cover when not in use.


Hot Cooking Surfaces-  Any cooking activity involves heat.  Treat the
focused light being used for cooking as you would a gas/electric range, or
campfire.   Always wear oven mitts when tending to food being cooked.  
Always place the food being cooked in an elevated position so that any
misdirected light passes harmlessly into the sky, and does not strike a tree
or structure in the background.  

Fire hazard-  Again, as with stoves, the focused light is hot enough to start a
fire.  Always place the food being cooked in an elevated position so that any
misdirected light passes harmlessly into the sky.  Remember that the hot
focal point will slowly move as the sun tracks across the sky.  Slight
adjustments to the dish position will be required every 15 minutes or so.   
While in focusing mode, never leave the dish unattended.   Cook in areas
where misdirected light cannot burn items in the background.  
We have improved the seals on the dishes such that they will maintain a
vacuum-deformed condition for days.  
Always replace the mirror cover or relieve the vacuum inside the dish after
using so that the film returns to a flat mirror condition that will not focus light,
and start an inadvertent fire.


The focused light is as bright as the sun.       Always wear dark
sunglasses while positioning focal point onto the cooking surface.  
Avoid staring at the focused light.


Make sure that all cooking stands are stable in windy conditions.
