Now,why would a Solar Cooking website suggest  High Efficiency Rocket Stoves? 

Well, since we know that no place in the world has sunshine 24 hours a day, we wanted to help people to know of, what many consider, the second best alternative for cooking ones food, and that would be a highly efficient wood, or bio-mass burning stove. 

* Use your Solar Cooker when the sun is shining and use your Rocket Stove when it is not, and that way you will always be covered.

With a rocket stove you can cook a full meal with a minimum of fuel, very little smoke and highly concentrated and efficient heat production with minimal heat loss.

A rocket stove is efficient because of certain factors and principles.

  • The rocket sleeve insulates around the fire.
  • They use a short, insulated chimney right above the fire to help burn up the smoke and speed up the draft.
  • They maintain a good fast draft from under the fire, up through the coals rather than above the coals which can actually cool the fire.
  • They have unrestricted airflow and the spaces through which the air flows are not too large and usually uniform in size.
  • They usually use a grate under the fire.
  • The Heat flow path is insulated as well in a good rocket stove.
  • And finally, a good rocket stove maximizes the heat transfer to the cookig pot using properly sized gaps,none too large where heat can dissapate into the air.


The Benefits of a good rocket stove fall within these general parameters.
