This study has been made to analyze the exergy and energy assessment of double exposure solar cooker (DESC) under local climatic condition in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India. Cooking test of food stuffs has been done with vessels viz., copper, aluminium, stainless steel and ceramic pots. Energy balance equations have been written for the temperature elements of the cooker . It has been found that the copper vessel has significant impact on the performance of the cooker and the theoretical and experimental observations are in good agreement.Exergy and Energy assesment of the cooker was also carried out.
