A rocket stove is an efficient and hot burning stove using small-diameter wood fuel. Fuel is burned in a simple combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney, which ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface. extremely good if fuel is scarce or for long term use as even a makeshift one can be sturdy enough to hold a pot on its own. imo there's no better for through-hiking in my biome.

@neauoire my partner and I built a simple brick rocket-like stove recently, it works well but is super inefficient, I'm looking for ideas for our next one. But it worked well enough to cook a big pot of nabe :)

@tomisme Nice! I've seen some really nice designs that are made from concrete, could be a nice next step.

@neauoire this is what I was saying! They make light portable versions but yea diy works too. I don’t know how safe it would be on a boat but if you don’t do the deep water thing you will always have wood/sticks you could scavenge.

@im I own (recntly) and use (not in town) this ➡️

That's really impressive how it works well, with just a few wood...

@peregrine @neauoire

@im @neauoire I always assumed the instant pots lower energy use comes from the lowering of the boiling point but in hindsight it seems its much higher insulation is probably more important.

@neauoire Yeah, my new place has an electric stove and I am leaning towards my instapot because it's the most energy efficient option I have.
