Designed by EcoZoom, Jet is a Rocket-type stove for cooking with wood, charcoal and biomass briquettes.
Distributed and designed by EcoZoom, Jet is a lightweight and rocket-type cookstove specifically designed for a single pot and for burning wood and solid biomass fuels. It has a refractory metal combustion chamber, ceramic insulation, universal cast iron stovetop and steel handles with silicone grips for easy movement and transportation and cool touch technology. Introduction video to the EcoZoom Jet stove available.
Countries: Congo, Ghana, Haiti, Nigeria, Senegal, Zambia, Kenya.
Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Individuals and families in developing countries in need of eco-friendly and efficient cooking products.
The exact number of Jet stoves distribution to date is unknown, however, EcoZoom has a production volume capacity of 60,000 stoves/month (considering all commercialized models) that can be scaled to fit any project.

Ecozoom indicates that they use the standard laboratory test conducted for cookstoves – the 5-liter Water Boiling Test (WBT). The WBT is a laboratory-based test that can be used to measure how efficiently a stove uses fuel to heat water in a cooking pot and the quantity of emissions produced while cooking. This test can be used to evaluate stove changes during development, compare the effectiveness of different designs, select the most promising products for field trials, and ensure that manufactured stoves meet intended performance.
Ecozoom also follows a 5-step design process before introducing stoves into developing markets to ensure adoption.
EcoZoom conducted field testing of the Jet in Kenya for 15 months.
EcoZoom Jet won Gold in 2014 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA®) by a panel of 24 international design experts over 2,000 other entries.
