Manufacturer Specified Performance Parameters


Vetted Performance Status

In 2014, a Water Boiling Test (WBT) was conducted three times on each stove, concurrently with an emissions test following the WBT Protocol 4.2.2 and the Guidelines for testing charcoal stoves with WBT 4.2.2. The results of this test confirmed the classification of the stove in Tier 3 of thermal efficiency and Tier 0 for emissions and indoor emissions.


Customers should be aware of using the cookstove with a good draft, in order to avoid harmful emission levels within a closed space. It is also recommended to burn dry charcoal in order to achieve the expected efficiency and avoid potentially harmful gas emissions.
