Easy Oven Retained Heat Cooker
Easy Oven Retained Heat Cooker w/ Rocketworks Stove

Jo Kennard in Australia has developed a retained heat cooker the Easy Oven, and has developed an excellent table of recommended cooking times and recipes to go with it.

Inspired by traditional Haybox cookers, and made from modern materials, the EasyOven saves between 86% - 90% of energy used while cooking meals, keeps food hot (or cold) for up to 3 hours. It was field tested during the Christchurch earthquakes and the Brisbane floods, and it is at home both in rural kitchens and in suburban potlucks.

The Tin Shed Rotary program in Labardore, Goldcoast, Queensland Australia has been making Wood gas stoves out of old gas bottles and shipping them to Vanuatu. The last picture is the people of Vanuatu with their stoves.

Biochar Industries part of Biochar Project in Kunghur Australia is now selling Biochar TLUD cook stoves as part of our plan to make more people aware of the benefits of biochar.

TLUD is an acronym for Top Lit Up Draught meaning you lite it at the top and the air is sucked up through the fire. Fantastic device that is light to carry and will work with all woods great survival tool . The best feature of this Tlud is when the flames go out you then have biochar. All you have to do is drop the embers on the ground and spray some water on them so they don’t continue to burn.

This particular model was imported from India and has a very nice finish and somehow I ended up with some to sell so I wanted to let my readers know first before I start selling them at stores and markets.

I’ve been following a couple of different groups and discussions to learn about biochar for about 6 months. Id like to share what I’ve been learning and ask a couple of questions.

My purpose is to use biochar as a component in biological soil synthesis and buffer for use in a vaquaculture growing system.

I have been making small TLUD stoves, observing modeling tweaking making another.
