Converting Efficient Low-Cost Two-Bricks Super Clean Cooking Rocket Stoves (2BSCRS) from Firewood to Charcoal

IMG_9863During user experience sharing session conducted in Mukono District, we realized that some families preferred a model which can easily be converted from firewood to charcoal. The conversion is made easily by inserting a perforated metal plate in between the upper and bottom bricks as per the photos below. Again, you can also insert a developed holed thin clay sheet.

Experience Sharing after one month using Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves

Good3On 15th of April 2018 YITEDEV and KIRUCODO carried out a mass distribution of Two-Bricks Clean Cook Rocket Stoves (2BCCROST) to over 100 women in Bunakijja, Lugazi and Namaliri villages. This project is currently supported by SUN24 of Florida USA.

On 13th May, 2018, we reached out to a total of four respondents who are currently using the Rocket Cooking Stoves and their feedback was given based on usage experience.

The bigger stove (6-inch diameter hole) seemed to be much better than the small (4-inch stove) in efficiency and closely met the needs of women in cooking except for its weakness of majorly the bottom brick which is not strong enough and easily breaks even with simple cooking.
