No electricity required to prepare your delicious meals – Ikhishi Unplugged!
No need for electricity, paraffin or LPG, a very large household expense both to buy and transport.
The Ikhishi clean Cooker is a self-sufficient, environment friendly, smoke-free cooker that reduces smoke inhalation and greenhouse gas emissions with significant health benefits and providing a host of social and cost saving benefits.
It provides a cheap, safe, smoke-free cooking, grilling or baking at the same time providing sustainable employment opportunities for women.
The application of the rocket stove technology for cooking, grilling or baking (smoke free) in rural regions in Africa supports a development that is based on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP).
The rocket stove technology will enable local people to produce fresh and affordable food and also reduces demand for wood, solid fuels, gas and electricity.
All you need is wood or any other fibrous material, it reduces demand for gas, paraffin & electricity and the heat stays inside for very long periods.
1.6 million deaths each year – mostly women and children – can be attributed to diseases resulting from smoke inhalation from open cooking fires.
In developing countries, 730 million tonnes of biomass are burned each year, amounting to more than 1 billion tonnes of CO2 in the atmosphere.
2.5 billion people worldwide are fully dependant on burning wood biomass/solid fuels for cooking. In sub-Saharan Africa, for example, 77% of people use wood solid fuels.
The bulk of South Africa’s poor are concentrated in the wooded biomes, especially woodlands, in Limpopo, KwaZulu Natal and the Eastern Cape. Over 80% of these households depend on wood fuel as their primary source of energy.
