El Fuego del Sol’s briquettes only work successfully in Prakti stoves and the newly developed Fuego del Sol household briquette stove since the square shape makes them obsolete in most stoves.
A retained heating cooker designed by El Fuego del Sol maintains the temperature of the stoves to reduce the amount of briquettes required.
