Shengzhou Charcoal Stove
Shengzhou Charcoal Stove

This charcoal stove features a small combustion chamber so that only the amount of fuel that is needed for cooking is consumed. Reflective insulation allows the stove to quickly achieve the temperature needed to burn the CO. Secondary air allows the CO to burn down to safe emissions levels. The stove features a tight sealing door to control the firepower so that there is no need to remove charcoal for low power cooking. The effective insulation allows for faster lighting times.
