How can I reuse or recycle moulded polystyrene?
We’ve had a clever idea email from Victoria about making an oven/slow cooker out of polystyrene. We’ve covered moulded polystyrene in the past but I liked this idea so much that I thought I’d feature it again:
i have made an oven from recycled polystyrene when my next door neighbour got her new washing machine she had just the thing i needed to make my energy free oven. keep with me!
on www.selfsufficientish.com, they explain how to make an oven and it works.
i had an old storage unit one that goes out side that you can store all your veg in. i moved and had lots of storage in my new kitchen so no longer needed it. i put the polystyrene in and insulated my storage box. i also added balls in pillow cases around.
i put my stew on the hob for 5 mins popped it in my “oven” and 10 hours later hot stew cooked!
i was so amazed i want to make another for my friend but can not get my hands on the polystyrene.
i know that this is not everyone’s cup of tea but for me, its a great way to recycle.
It is indeed. Anyone else done this as well? Or made other cool things out of polystyrene?
