EcoZoom Dura Rocket Stove : Review

Cook a meal with a handful of twigs on the EcoZoom Dura.

Rocket stoves are efficient by design but tend to run hot. They are in fact so hot that they can be unsafe. The EcoZoom Dura solves this issue with a well-insulated combustion chamber that not only makes the stove safer, but more efficient. You’ll lose less heat through the sides of the stove, which makes for a hotter cooking surface.
The EcoZoom Dura also comes with a stick support, which makes it easier to use longer sticks. Not that you’ll need many. The small number of twigs and sticks required for cooking is impressive. A quick scrounge of the forest floor easily gives you enough biomass to cook a meal. Cooking is easy too, thanks to the cast iron three-pronged cooking surface. Any size pot or pan rests solidly, making the endeavor both safe and secure. The metal lined combustion chamber will give many years of service and the reinforced metal door frames look pretty tough as well. At about 10 pounds, the EcoZoom Dura is easy to toss in the trunk and can get a meal going faster than a traditional fire, making it worth a look if you do a lot of outdoor cooking.
