Stove description
Charcoal Jiko. A common stove found in Africa, this stove has a ceramic liner with 2-cm diameter holes to allow for air flow up through the charcoal. The amount of air is controlled by a small door below the fire in the metal stove body. Two of five tests used natural charcoal, while the remaining 3 tests used Kingsford charcoal.
