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.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
