Frequently Asked Questions about Energy-Efficient Cookstoves

An energy-efficient cookstove or ABS works by efficiently burning small pieces of wood or other biomass fuel in a combustion chamber. The design of the stove allows for improved airflow, which helps burn the fuel more completely and produce more heat for cooking.

While both rocket stoves and advanced biomass stoves are types of improved cookstoves designed to be more efficient and environmentally friendly than cooking on open fires, they are not exactly the same. Here are some key differences between rocket stoves and advanced biomass stoves:

Rocket Stove:

-Rocket stoves are a type of biomass stove featuring a vertical combustion chamber and chimney-like design to maximize airflow and burn fuel more efficiently.

– Known for their simple and low-cost design, rocket stoves are popular in developing countries and for outdoor cooking.

– Typically used for cooking food but can also be used for heating water and other purposes.

Advanced Biomass Stove:

– Advanced biomass stoves refer to a broader category of improved cookstoves that incorporate advanced technology and design features to enhance efficiency and reduce emissions.

– Available in various designs and configurations

– While advanced biomass stoves may be more complex and expensive than traditional rocket stoves, they often offer higher efficiency and lower emissions.

Using an advanced biomass stove can help save fuel, reduce smoke and emissions, cook food faster, and be more environmentally friendly compared to cooking on open fires.

The suitability for indoor use depends on the type of stove and whether it specifies on the box that it can be used indoors. It is essential to ensure proper ventilation when using them indoors to reduce any potential health risks from smoke exposure.

Using an advanced biomass stove helps reduce indoor air pollution and exposure to harmful smoke, which has positive impacts on respiratory health for those using the stove.

MAFECS stands for Multi-Application Fuel Efficient Cookstove.

Sticks the thickness of your thumb are ideal.

You can use dried sticks from the garden, sustainably sourced/ purchased wood, dried maize cobs, and dried cattle dung.

The MAFECS is designed to significantly reduce the amount of smoke produced. To ensure that your MAFECS doesn’t produce a lot of smoke, ensure that your wood is dry. If the wood is wet, remove it and use dry wood. Ensure that you don’t overfill the stick shelf and don’t put wood into the combustion chamber. If there is too much wood, the fire may not be able to breathe properly and could suffocate. Remove some fuel. Ensure that the EcoPot is securely positioned on the stove.

We recommend using a fire lighter or kindling. To maintain the stove, regularly clean out ash and debris, and ensure proper airflow for efficient burning.

Wash the EcoPot in warm soapy water. Avoid using steel wool or abrasive chemicals.

While the MAFECS comes with an ash plate, it is recommended to prevent any heat damage by placing the stove on bricks, additional wooden planks, or on a raised table.

It is not recommended to use the MAFECS indoors.

Yes, it can be used to cook a variety of foods, from boiling water and simmering stews to baking pot breads.

When you are finished cooking on it, and it has cooled down. Remove any residue ash and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Wash your Eco-Pot in warm soapy water. To protect your stove from the elements, store it in a dry and covered area when not in use. Avoid exposing the stove to rain or extreme weather conditions, as this can cause damage. Proper care and maintenance will help extend the life of your stove and ensure optimal performance.
