Kerosene lanstove is a device which simultaneously produces very high quality of light, cooks a complete meal for a family of 4-5 people and boils 10 liters of water. The word lanstove has been coined by our Institute NARI (http://www.nariphaltan.org ). The kerosene combustion is excellent with CO levels less than 3-4 ppm and particulates are within WHO limits. Lanstove is as convenient as LPG stove cooking and has been tested in rural households in India. http://www.nariphaltan.org/kerolanstove.pdf
