A rocket stove is an efficient and hot-burning stove that uses small-diameter wood fuel. The fuel is burned in a simple combustion chamber with an insulated vertical chimney that ensures almost complete combustion before the flames reach the cooking surface. Rocket stove designs are most commonly used for portable stoves for cooking, but the design is also used to make rocket mass heaters for heating. Today we’re sharing some tutorials to help you make your own. So if you fancy some crafting, read on!
The principle behind a rocket stove is simple: instead of cooking on an open fire, you burn wood in an insulated chimney. Rocket stoves are highly efficient and easy to manufacture. They walk on branches so you can avoid cutting down a whole tree just to cook dinner. This 5 gallon steel bucket stove is easy to build and you will enjoy using it.
Low tech is the new high tech, and the best example of the low tech revolution is the wondrous rocket stove – an oven that allows cooking with small twigs – without logs! The chimney effect creates a highly efficient, largely smoke-free combustion. You don’t have to cut a tree to cook your dinner – all you need is a few small branches or twigs.
With four cans of soup and a # 10 can (like the size used for large stewed tomatoes or the like), you can build this rocket stove powerful enough to make a meal in minutes.

This pretty rocket stove was built from a 10 gallon steel pail and can be used as a small charcoal grill. Despite its rough appearance and obvious limitations, it works well. Once started, it boils water faster than the gas stove in the kitchen.
A well-designed DIY rocket stove can produce the same amount of heat as a wood stove with up to 90% less fuel. This efficiency advantage is mainly achieved by two parts of the rocket furnace design. Read this tutorial to find out how to make one.
