Jiko Chap Chap is an efficient wood burning cook stove that addresses consumer needs by providing ergonomic improvements to compliment traditional cooking styles. The patent pending technology provides:
- The option of cooking 1, 2 or 3 pots simultaneously from one fire source.
- A design that grips pots of various sizes allowing the cook to stir the contents without having to hold on to the cooking pot. The fire is contained inside the stove making it easy to start in poor conditions and out of harm’s way from children.
- The stove has a vertically fed fuel system so that as the wood burns it feeds itself into the stove. This allows the operator the luxury of attending to other chores whilst the food is cooking. Spare parts are available for the stove that can be easily fitted by the owner, extending the life of the stove for a fraction of the upfront cost. The stoves come in a range of sizes to suit cooking requirements and consumer budgets.
Background Information & Social Impact
35% of global emissions that contribute to climate change come from the 3 billion people worldwide cooking on an open fire. This inefficient use of fuel leads to 3 million deaths each year, unprecedented levels of deforestation, and soil erosion. Develatech's efficient stoves reduce wood consumption by 60%, CO and particulate emissions by 87%. With every stove a pack of 30 indigenous tree seeds and an information booklet explaining how to nurture the seedlings and the economic value after 5 and 10 years is provided.
