EcoZoom stoves are safe, easy and fun to use for outdoor cooking. The outside of the stove stays cool to the touch when use is under an hour. The stove is quick to light, easy to maintain the flame and simple to clean up. When using wood the best fuel is laying on the ground all around you, making it fun for children to gather twigs and participant in the cooking. (It’s also great for roasting marshmallows!) Using a classic rocket stove design, we offer biomass cookstoves that can boil 5 liters of water in 25 minutes or cook a whole meal with a handful of twigs from the backyard. The EcoZoom stove travels well in a 5-gallon bucket with lid from the hardware store. The bucket protects the stove, makes it stackable and allows extra room to store kindling and matches. It is also easy to clean in case ash gets into.
For many the EcoZoom stove is an essential part of their emergency preparation plan and kits. The stove is small, easy to store and fuel for it is all around you. EcoZoom stoves use up to 60% less wood than an open fire and decrease smoke and harmful emissions by 70%. In an emergency, the supple of fuel can be interrupted. If you’re cooking with gas fuels, you may run out before the emergency is over. As it can become costly and cumbersome to store large amounts of propane, the EcoZoom stove can be seen as a lower cost, more secure option. If planning to use the EcoZoom in an emergency, we advise you to get it early and practice. That way, if you’re caught without your typical cooking method you’ll feel secure that you know how to use your alternative. Again, the EcoZoom stove stores well in a 5-gallon bucket with lid from the hardware store. The bucket protects the stove, makes it stackable and allows extra room to store kindling and matches. It is also easy to clean in case ash gets into.
It’s small, yet powerful enough to cook a meal with a tiny bit of fuel and minimal smoke. Fast too! As my son says, if we had a real emergency with no power and all our stored fuel was used up, we could still have a hot meal. That is peace of mind!” - Sally from Portland, OR
