Technology and innovations can definitely change our lives for the better. A man in Kerala has come up with a ‘rocket stove’ – a new innovation that does not need LPG or electricity to cook food. It requires coconut shells, firewood, and waste pepper as fuel and helps in cutting down smoke by 80 per cent.

According to The New Indian Express, the ‘rocket stove’ also serves as a water heating facility and oven. Abdul Kareem of Thrikkakara, Kerala is the man behind the machine so to speak. 

“With four decades of experience in making furnaces, boilers, kitchens and other industrial materials, Rocket stove was developed out of my curiosity. Thanks to Covid-induced lockdown, I managed to finalise the design around six months ago and started the production,” he said. 

“Though it is an old idea, we transformed it to suit the requirements of Keralites. Apart from traditional firewood, people can also use waste paper and other combustible dry waste in the stove," he added. 

“The high-end model costs around Rs 14,000 and has a pipe to expel the smoke outside. This will be ideal for flats and apartments. A normal model with a basic stove will cost Rs 4,500. The remaining two models have options like grilling, oven, water heating etc. The oven model will provide heat up to 280°C."

Based on a British concept from the 1850s, the stove is a useful innovation and is the solution to the woes of cooking for many families.
