Rocket Stove Design: How to Make a Rocket Stove (with video)

Rocket stoves are used for cooking, heating water, and space heating–the primary advantages of one is that they use much less fuel than a traditional

open wood fire, they’re easy to make cheaply, and produce much less pollution! The rocket stove burns fuel very efficiently by operating at a very high temperature and by making sure that there is a good air draft into the fire, controlled use of fuel, complete combustion of volatiles, and efficient use of the resulting heat. It has been used for

cooking purposes in many hastily constructed and therefore poorly equipped camps and bases in third-world countries (notably the Rwandan refugee camps) and for space heating and water heating. Try making one yourself, it’s cheap and won’t take long at all:
