Rocket Stove!

For those of you familiar with the Bulungula Backpacker “Rocket Showers”, meet the kitchen equivalent!

Rocket Stove

Our good friend and handy man JP built the infamous rocket showers for the backpacker and now he has built a rocket stove to be used at the new Folokwhe Preschool.  Rocket stoves are efficient cooking stoves that use about half as much fuel as traditional open fires and can utilize even a few small tree branches to cook an entire meal!  Now the Preschool can cook for all the children without having to worry about running out of gas or wood!

      Hi Alan. the stove does not use paraffin like the rocket showers, it uses wood. It’s also call a ‘rocket’ because it burns fuel efficiently but wood fuel rather than paraffin fuel.
