The Berkeley-Darfur Stove is an advanced, high quality, metal (steel), fuel-efficient wood burning stove. It is mass-produced through high quality control procedures during manufacture and assembly. These measures are taken to keep costs down and to maintain optimal stove dimensions. As a result, this stove is believed to perform more consistently, transfer heat more efficiently and have a longer product life than the much cheaper improved mud stoves that dominate the fuel-efficient stove (FES) market in Darfur. The stove is fueled by firewood, the most traditional and common cooking fuel in Darfur, but it can also use wood scraps and twigs. Based on feedback from women in Darfur, the original stove Berkeley-Darfur Stove design was modified to be incased in a mesh to make the stove more attractive after use and to prevent burns. Slight modifications, such as a change in pot rod positioning have been made to accommodate Ethiopian pots and coffee roasting pans.
