Mimi Moto is a forced-air gasifier stove with two burning chambers, an inbuilt fan and battery within a solar panel.
Designed in Holland, the Mimi Moto is a forced-air gasifier cookstove designed to operate using locally produced biomass pellets as fuel. Two removable burning chambers are used; the larger for high powered flame and a smaller biomass chamber for low power simmering. The built-in fan is powered by an external rechargeable battery pack. A solar panel is included to charge the battery pack for off-grid applications. Promotional and instructional videos about the stove available.
Mimi Moto is based in the Netherlands.

Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Individuals and households who cook over open fires.
The Clean Cookstoves are produced in specialized factories throughout South Africa, that also produce household appliances. These professional production facilities are able to mass produce the Clean Cookstoves in high quantities.
The technology and design of Mimi Moto are globally patented (see: WO2016/107688A1).
Users can obtain the stove and pellets in Zambia through Supamoto Energy.
Users can obtain the stove and pellets in Kenya through Inyenyeri
Mimi Moto gasifier cookstoves can be donated to families in South Africa through the clean cooking revolution website. One family can be provided with a cookstove for 42.51 USD, and discounts are available when sponsoring multiple families. Users in South Africa can purchase the stove for 23.63 USD (ZAR 350). Users can also pay in installments or enroll in a micro credit program. Contact Clean Cooking Revolution for South African distribution information.

Mimi Moto is an affordable cookstove specifically designed to burn cheap, locally produced biomass fuel such as wood pellets in a very clean and efficient way. The stove reduces the amount of harmful smoke and easily complies with the air quality guidelines stated by the WHO. It also improves household incomes by reducing fuel consumption and helping save 12 USD/month on fuel.
The stove filled with approximately 800 gram of 6mm wood pellets and will burn about 1 to 1.5 hour.
One household will require approximately 20 kg of wood pellets per week.
The Clean Cookstoves are standard equipped with a solar panel, to charge the rechargeable battery pack when working off-grid.
