Built around a robust frame that not only provides strength, but also protection against the hot surface of the combustion chamber. The pot support frame can accommodate a range of different round or flat-bottomed cooking pots from a kettle to a Dutch Oven. This also makes the stove exceptionally steady thanks to its wide footprint.
Easy and quick to light; powered by a handful of sticks. This ‘rocket stove’ gives you all the joy of real fire with the convenience of a modern stove.
Light a small fire inside the combustion chamber, then insert some sticks (the dryer the better) horizontally into the stove. Within a minute or two the stove is ready for cooking. As the fuel burns, you nudge the sticks in, according to the intensity of heat required.
The stove is a ‘rocket stove’ design, meaning it uses a clever mix of insulation and air venting to ensure a clean, intense burn. Primary air is drawn in under the fuel, and secondary air (to burn off the smoke) is drawn in over the fuel. The double-walled steel combustion chamber provides just the right environment for combustion. The stove literally boils smoke out of the wood, then burns it!
