This stove’s design reduces the amount of firewood required to cook. Due to its reduced size, transportation is also easier.
EnDev designed and developed the portable stove Augusta (in Spanish there is a rhyming slogan, Augusta, la cocina que más nos gusta, meaning “Augusta, the stove we like most”), which is being produced since 2016. Augusta stoves are powered by firewood and are built by local manufacturers. They are sold by the EPs. Its design has an external metal protection in the form of a cage that protects the user from the heat while cooking (see below). This stove saves 38% wood in comparison with a traditional stove.
