This stove shown here was assembled in Malawi in December 2022.
It consists of rocket type clay stove and is producing a good flame but it will need the addition of a ceramic fibre chimney insert to protect the clay from overheating.
It is expected that all CFB stoves will soon be made of clay, as above, since this minimises cost and the CF blanket increases burning efficiency and prevents heat cracks!
