Eli's rocket stove

I just had to post a blog about one of the many creative projects Eli did last week. He researched mud/clay "rocket stoves" on the Internet: a very easy, cheap, efficient way to cook. So he decided to build one as an experiment with some of his friends and if it worked, get people in Yabus building and using them. It meant a morning full of mixing mud, patting mud, and molding a practical piece of pottery.

Very intersting.

In rural India these are quite common amongst the very poor and traditional folk - also in areas where oil and gas is not available.

They make them with mud and cow dung too. And burn wood and cow dung cakes or coal.

They are called chulas here. You can get portable ones too., built around a metal bucket.You can build a chula with bricks and mud too.

In my childhood we had one when gas was not available. They are also called aghentis.
