Cooking up a stew? Boiling a kettle?
This efficient stove is perfect for the back of the camper van, outside your bell tent or boat, in your garden or balcony, or to keep in your woodland. Or to have for the day that woodland is yours...
I've tried out several rocket stoves, all of the ones on the market in the UK, and this is my stand out favourite. It's solid, versatile, equally at home with charcoal or wood, and has a controllable burn as happy cooking sausages as cornbread. It also produces 70% LESS smoke than an open fire and uses 60% less fuel.
Some of the photos are of it in action in my woodland and outside the Netil Market shop. If you'd like a demonstration just let us know, any day but Saturday!

The body is fully insulated, and 'refractory metal lined', forcing the flames to mix with gases released, meaning less smoke and greater efficiency. The base has a layer of terracotta - used to line kilns for millennia. The top is cast iron. That all means it transfers the maximum amount of heat to your pots and pans rather than the atmosphere.
The Zoom Versa uses Wood, Biomass & Charcoal, so no gas, meths or other fuels needed.
The flames burn clean, producing less smoke than conventional fires and using less wood too.
The Versa has a durable three pronged cast iron stove top that can support a flat or round bottomed pan, as well as stainless steel handles with silicone grips to assist you in moving the stove.
The Zoom Versa offers big power in a portable package, ideal for any outdoor cooking experience!

EcoZoom is a social enterprise and certified B Corporation that makes clean burning, portable wood and charcoal powered cookstoves. They believe cooking should be healthy, efficient and eco-friendly for cooks around the globe. Billions of people in developing countries do not have access to electricity and gas. They cook with biomass and often on unhealthy and inefficient fires. Women spend hours daily gathering fuel which excludes them from other activities. Families can spend up to 30% of their monthly income on fuel, forcing them into energy poverty. Environmentally, fuel production contributes significantly to deforestation. EcoZoom cookstoves offer a solution that is healthy, efficient and eco-friendly! They are currently selling these stoves in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, Somalia, South Africa, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan and India. They also sell across the US, Canada and Europe, Japan and South Korea. The later countries in the most part subsidise the former.
These stoves are perfect for outdoor cooking, camping or for emergencies. Unlike other outdoor cooking methods, these stoves don't rely on gas fuel or lengthy preparation (like a barbecue). They are more robust than many other rocket stoves on the market. They use firewood, charcoal or solid biomass and have a lifetime of more than 5 years. Fuel efficient, durable and safe to use. They are fun to use and, yes, look great.
