EcoZoom’s Versa Stove

With a background in developing cooking solutions for even the most remote areas of third world countries, EcoZoom has established a line of stoves that have a proven track record for durability, eficiency and practicality.

Providing safer to use alternatives over traditional charcoal or wood-burning stoves, EcoZoom’s Versa Stove is capable of controlled burns of charcoal, wood or any other biomass fuel. The company’s irst product, a wood-burning stove, was initially designed for camping and outdoor recreational use. The EcoZoom team soon realized that many people in developing countries around the world cook with irewood daily and could beneit greatly from their simple wood burning rocket stove design, rather than cooking over open ires. Household air pollution kills four million people per year; cooking with irewood is a large part of this problem. According to the company, cooking two meals a day using irewood may cause damage that is the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. Their wood-burning stove has been distributed to countries including Rwanda, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, Mexico, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Somalia and Nigeria, to great success. EcoZoom decided to tackle similar problems that cooking with charcoal may cause. Their charcoal stoves are speciically designed for people who cook using charcoal on a daily basis. Popular for their eficiency and ease of use in Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Zambia, among others, EcoZoom’s charcoal stoves have a clay and ceramic iber insulation layer that prevents heat loss to the outside of the stove. A small combustion chamber ensures that high temperatures effectively reach the bottom of the pot, rather than escaping past the sides.
