Abstract

In this study, an improved charcoal cooking stove was designed, fabricated,and evaluated,along with a traditional metal stove using charcoal as fuel. Evaluation of the two stoves was based on two different test conditions,namely vent completely/fully opened and vent half way opened. Water boiling tests and cooking tests were used to evaluate the improved stove fabricated. A thermal efficiency value of 34% was obtained for the improved stove and 11% for the traditional metal stove.Values obtained for burn rates, specific fuel consumption and cooking durations were 0.34 kg/hr, 0.52kg/kg,and 38min,respectively for the improved stove and 0.1kg/hr,1.23kg/kg,and52min,respectively for the traditional metal stove. The improved cooking stove fabricated proved to be more efficient and effective than traditional metal stove
