Difference between solar cooker and solar oven

Is there a difference between an “oven” and a “cooker” for solar cooking?

Solar “oven”

Well, although these terms are actually most often used interchangeably, it is generally called an “oven” if you put the food inside the insulated walls of the box, similar to a regular kitchen oven.

Solar “cooker”

Also, it is generally referred to as a “cooker” if it, like the parabolic or panel cooker, does not have an actual box-body to place food in, but rather some alternative method.

However, these ‘rules’ are pretty loose and I have heard experts over the years refer to them as either/or on a regular basis.
