Stovetec’s Deluxe 2 door metal lined rocket stove design burns wood, biomass, or charcoal fuel, and now features many new improvements. It is more durable, easier to operate, safer to use, and longer lasting.
The Stove includes the fuel shelf and adjustable pot skirt for boiling. Stovetec’s Spring 2012 upgrades includes a refractory metal block attached to the upper combustion chamber door and a newly designed pot skirt. They exchanged our natural ceramic block for a refractory metal block, to achieve uniformity and the need for user adjustment. Its function is to protect the exterior paint on the upper combustion door. Stovetec’s new skirt has a double folded hem and precise 1 centimeter spacers for improved fit and heat transfer. We also exchanged our adjustable wing for a quality knurled adjustment knob. These changes are examples of continued advances in StoveTec designs by our Aprovecho Research Center lab and factory.
Are you prepared? This stove is what your family needs in the event of an earthquake, tornado, flood, hurricane, or other natural disaster.
Do you have a plan? Are you prepared to boil drinking water, cook food, if traditional fuel or electricity becomes unavailable? This stove is completely self sufficient for off the grid cooking, water purification, recreation, or emergency situations.
StoveTec original rocket stoves are the stoves you heard about on NPR, developed by Aprovecho Research Center and Dr. Larry Winiarski. They were also featured on Martha Stewarts TV Show, The New Yorker Magazine, on numerous other National and International publications. StoveTec stoves won Prince Charles 2009 Ashden International Energy Champion Award. These stoves use 40 – 50% less biomass fuel and reduce emissions by 50-75% compared to cooking on an open fire or unimproved cook stove.
StoveTec stoves prevent 60%, or 1.5 tons of green house gas emissions annually. Their stoves have been tested in the lab and in the field by numerous international relief organizations, universities, and government agencies.
The new StoveTec Deluxe 2 Door Stove utilizes the new Swingform Technology(TM) combustion chamber doors, for a quick switch from biomass, wood, to charcoal fuel. The upper combustion chamber door and the lower ventilation door have reinforced metal frames and hinges that serve to securely close the doors and regulate airflow.
They have reformulated our cast iron stove top, refractory metal door, combustion chamber liner, and internal grate for added durability and also have included a replaceable secondary grate to increase airflow and protect the stove. Our new design is thicker, more durable, and cooler to the touch, to keep you safe.
Feed wood fuel into the larger top door to increase firepower when cooking with woks, frying pans, griddles or boiling pots. Use the small lower door to control the flow of air into the fire (which lowers emissions). This smaller door is used to control wood embers when simmering rice, beans, potatoes, or to BBQ, or cook slow cooking foods. Low power cooking is used when burning wood, biomass, or charcoal, just close the big door and control the rate of burn by adjusting the lower door. Charcoal, however is not an environmentally friendly fuel.
Although charcoal burns hotter than wood, the grate distance is greater to the pot and is not as effective as wood or biomass for firepower (up to 23,900 max BTU with wood fuel). Please note that 70% to 80% of the energy of wood is lost in the production of charcoal, not to mention the pollution created producing charcoal. Illegal charcoal production has led to destructive environmental damage and increased global warming in many parts of the world. Charcoal is used for prolonged simmering or grilling operations, however this can be accomplished using just wood or biomass embers in this stove. You can simmer using wood embers in the 2 door stove for 45 minutes or longer.
You may want to consider the one door stove models if you do not want to consider using charcoal. The one door stove has a larger biomass combustion chamber opening and is more effective producing charcoal from wood fuel to add to for your garden as a soil additive to treat acidic soils. However, adding adjustable doors to a Rocket stove allows for fine tuned control of the air that enters the fire to speed up or slow down the rate of combustion. More air is needed to start a cold fire and to create a hot fire initially. Once the fire is going, partially closing the bottom door limits the air, increases heat transfer to the pot and reduces harmful emissions. This stove does have a slight advantage simmering fragile grains over the 1 door stove design.
The StoveTec Deluxe 2 door stove uses wood or biomass to cook food, as well as the lump charcoal fuel option. It reduces carbon monoxide in the enclosed space above the fire. Slight air from the lower door keeps wood, biomass embers, or lump charcoal burning. You must use wood or biomass for high temperature cooking: boiling, frying, high temperature grilling, or with a wok. Lump charcoal fuel is used for low temperature simmering or grilling only.
These stoves are designed to be used cooking outdoors.
