Can I use GoSun for fluids? Will it boil water?

Although the GoSun is capable of boiling water, the GoSun BREW is recommended as an additional accessory to heat up any type of liquids and also for boiling water. The BREW acts as a separate capsule which slides into the GoSun tube, and protects the device from any potential thermal shock. More news to come on the BREW accessory as it becomes commercially available! (ETA is Fall 2016)

Keep in mind - GoSun will not rapidly boil water like a standard stovetop. Instead, it will slowly bring water to boil (approx. one hour of full sunlight for 1-2 cups of coffee). GoSun actually cooks food much more rapidly than it takes to boil water, because of the comparatively high density of liquids over food.

    Thanks. I Obtained a temperature of 200 degrees Fareinheight in the CooKit solar cooker pattern. This temperature is not enough to cook neither beans nor yams, which are popular dishes in Nigeria. The Water has to reach the boiling point before the two items can be cooked. This is from personal experience. Is there a way of accelerating the temperature of the Cooker to reach boiling point?

    How much liquid can you put in safely, to accompany the food you cook, i.e. stews , rice, marinades with the meats, and the water that accompanies the oils you cook vegetables in?

    How come this knowledge-base article says "DO NOT POUR LIQUID" ? But this current article says "GoSun is capable of boiling water but we recommend not to"? Why the difference in tone? What are the risks of heating up water/boiling water? Thank you
