How to Make an Eco Rocket Stove

Rocket stoves are very common in Africa, as they are efficient and cheap to make.

A rocket stove is basically an elbow-shaped design, with 3 defining features.

  • At the bottom end of the elbow is a small opening called the feed, where you add your fire’s fuel.
  • Underneath each hole for the pots to sit on are gaps to allow air to flow in.
  • Then you have a long chimney, which takes away the smoke

You can make rocket stoves out of brick too, there are also modern versions made out of metal.

The positives of building a clay rocket stove are that it reduces smoke and we used local materials – so it’s also eco-friendly and eco-efficient, as they use less fuel to create more heat.
