Tiny Rocket Stove

Upcycle old cans into a portable rocket stove!
Can you imagine that a handful of twigs can cook an entire meal? It’s possible with Tiny Rocket Stove I’m about to present you. It weighs only around 0.5 kg / 1 lbs, it’s portable, cheap, and you can make it yourself! It’s a great addition to any emergency or camping checklist and inexpensive alternative to primus stoves.

Surprisingly, I found this idea on Prepared Housewives blog, hosted by Jamie (a mom of three, who’s focused on emergency ideas for a household). The whole tutorial was prepared by Brock, a Rocket Stove engineer from Premium Rocket Stoves shop.

If you’re courageous enough to make and use it, remember to send us some pics on our fan page - we would love to see the result of your efforts! If you have any tips that will helpful in building it, drop us a note too :)
