Solution Overview & Benefits

The CookMate stove is a temperature-variable charcoal cookstove. It is made of mild steel sheets with an embedded pot skirt. The charcoal combustion chamber has a conical shape and is relatively small compared to a traditional coal pot stove.

The stove is equipped with an adjustable sliding door that provides variable temperatures; this enables finer control over the cooking process. The CookMate stove is available in three sizes.

History & Development

CookClean has spent the last two years developing its improved cook stove “CookMate”, while tailoring it to the particular needs of households in developing countries.

Standardized testing procedures such as the "Kitchen Performance Test" (KPT) performed by third parties ClimateCare UK, showed up to 50% fuel savings as compared to the traditional Ghanaian charcoal stove.

The formal "Water Boiling Test" (WBT 4.2.1) conducted by the Institute of Industrial Research (IIR) of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) of Ghana showed that “CookMate” charcoal stoves boil faster and consume half the amount of fuel as compared to the traditional charcoal stoves used in the region.
