Manufacturer

The Hiteca Plancha stove was designed to satisfy the demands of the typical Guatemalan Family. It utilises an insulated 'hybrid rocket' combustion that combines the efficiency of a rocket combustion chamber with the size and power of a traditional stove or open fire. The Hiteca-Plancha features a large (16" x 32") plancha cooking surface with removable rings to allow the pots to be in direct contact with the flames which improves heat transfer to the food. These rings also allow the use of traditional clay pots or uneven warped metal pots and pans. The larger rocket combsustion chamber offers a great balance between power and efficiency and will easily boil large pots of food while keeping fuel consumption low. The stove design incorporates large solid tables that provide a clean cooking surface for preparing food. Pumice insulation is used to ensure an efficient, clean burn and to keep the body of the stove at a safe temperature to eliminate burns. The Hiteca-Plancha is delivered as one piece meaning that installation is fast and easy.
