M-5000 Envirofit Rocket Stove

Probably the first thing you’ll want to do when unpacking the M-5000 Envirofit Rocket Stove is tear up the box it came in and use the cardboard to light a fire in its oven. This small but rugged stove features an open chamber into which can go longer sticks and twigs, pushed further in periodically as they burn, and a heat reflecting shield that directs heat and fire up towards the cooktop fit for a pot or pan. Two wooden handles make it easy to move even when hot and four feet ensure it’s got stable footing. Ideal for campsite cooking or as part of an emergency kit, each is built in Kenya to drive the cost down throughout Africa and to facilitate purchase by locals who can rely on it as their primary stove.
