                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.

                                              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

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.
