Where do you get one?

Build a solar dehydrator for sure. That is a very practical and useful thing that can give you many years of trusty service. If you have a solar dehydrator you will not need a conventional one.

A solar cooker is a different matter. Unless you live in a very sunny place is is not really that practical but is really a novelty item. Thus, from an energy perspective, a solar cooker is most likely to use more energy to make than it will really produce. If you do make one for fun and education then make one with a group of friends.
