Jinqilin Stove
Jinqilin Stove

This stove was developed by the Linhong Company in China and is manufactured by Shanxi Jinqilin Energy Technology Co., Ltd. Approximately 6,000 stoves per year have reportedly been disseminated in China. Corn cobs are primarily used as fuel, but straw briquettes and wood may also be used. The stove is a gasifier design with separate controls for primary and secondary air. A hand-operated shuttle mechanism is used for continuous feeding of fuel. The stove has a chimney and an AC-powered fan that provides forced draft. The stove was tested with a chimney that was approximately 2 m in height. The top of the stove has removable, cast-iron rings to enable the bottom of a cooking pot to be directly exposed to hot combustion gases. Retail cost was reported to be approximately US$100.
