The cookstove is operated by solar power using a solar panel that can be mounted on the roof of people's homes, providing an inexpensive and sustainable cooking solution that can be used off grid. The solar panel powers a rechargeable battery in the stove. The cookstove is a gasifying stove, which implies that instead of burning the wood directly (such as in an open fire) the wood is transformed into gas, and the extracted wood gasses burn as a clean flame, letting no toxic vapors escape. This enables people to cook inside their home safely.
