Mwoto TLUD

The Mwoto TLUD cookstove was developed within the ‘Promoting Improved Top-Lit Updraft (TLUD) Cookstoves in Uganda” project by CREEC. It is a TLUD made entirely from steel. Its fuel chamber can hold up to 2100g of dry eucalyptus wood. It has 3 metallic pot stands and can be handled using the two metallic handles on the outer cylinder.For more information: http://www.mwotostove.com/
