Field testing and survey evaluation of household biomass cook-stoves in rural sub-Saharan Africa
This paper presents the results of two studies conducted to evaluate the performance and usability of household biomass cookstoves under ﬁeld conditions in rural sub-Saharan Africa. Cooking tests and qualitative surveys compared improved, manufactured stove models based on the ‘rocket’ design with the traditional three-stone ﬁre. All tests and interviews took place in household kitchens in two village areas in Western Uganda and Western Tanzania. The performance parameters evaluated in cooking tests were speciﬁc fuelwood consumption and cooking time. Surveying of household cooks gathered information about prevailing cooking practices, stove preference and usability, and willingness to pay for novel stove types.
