The plant oil stove was conceived with the aim of helping to save resources in emerging countries. It uses plant oil as a fuel, which, unlike wood, is obtained from quickly renewable resources (plants or fruit) and does not contribute to the erosion of the ground through deforestation. In terms of design, the aim was to create a simple, cost-effective appliance that could be produced locally with uncomplicated production methods. The tripod guarantees stability on uneven surfaces. The central stainless steel flame conduit tube dominates the minimalist design of the stove.
