    It is 7 years bad luck if you break a mirror... I wonder how many years bad luck you have... 100?

    If the mirror is silver on copper thick enough to conduct heat or has water cooled or air cooled to transfer heat to air it might permanently reflect the light heat to make a solar cooker.
    The mirror might not break

    Maybe make a watercooled mirror so like a big piece of super polished aluminum with holes running through it and you could have a big drum of water, simultaneously solar water boiling and reflection for cooking, it's like a solar stove

    I wonder if the mirrors still would have broken if the infrared spectrum of the light could mostly be excluded. After all, most mirrors don't reflect infrared light.

    6:00 Thermally shocked
    8:50 Spread the equal heat to entire surface of the mirror first before scorching to avoid thermal shock. The sun beam hits though the glass part before reflective part. Second surface glass
    10:58 There even a commercially purchaseable solar cooker

    Would you get better results reflecting the sunlight off the mirror, then through the magnifier onto the heating/cooking service? I imagine that the best service would be made of something like cast iron. You should be able to control the cooking temperature by moving the focal point in and out.

    You can buy an Aerosol can that when applied to Glass turns it into a mirror ( like spray paint) You should try some of this with thicker glass so it can withstand more heat

    If the solar panel is a convex Lens, then the light can be turned into a linear laser using a concave lens.
    Should make a laser cutter

    Why don't you use a mirror as big as the scorcher on the ground to aim the sunlight up then focus it onto a pan. Mirror wont get too hot and you can cook right way up

    Use a fiber optic cable to direct the light under a dark pan, you can paint the bottom of the pan to make it absorb more light. You can use plastic fiber optics, but if it gets dirty, it will burn.
