How to make a DIY Rocket Stove from two tin cans

DIY Rocket StoveWe love Rocket Stoves! They're easy to make and work so well because it doesn't take a lot of fuel to cook a meal. There are 3 main ways a rocket stove is used, 1. as a source to cook, 2. a heating source and 3. a water heating source. There are many different DIY designs for a rocket stove on the web as well as applications if you're looking to make on yourself. (Check the links at the bottom of this post for a few). But of all the rocket stoves we have shared for cooking, we really like this design from using two cans for its simplicity and portability.  Depending on your needs this design may not be suitable.

So  some of you might ask, “what is a Rocket Stove and how does it work?”  According to Wikipedia, A rocket stove is an efficient cooking stove using small diameter wood fuel which is burned in a simple high-temperature combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney which ensures complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface. (wikipedia)  Okay, you get it now right?  Check out the DIY and see for yourself.  You're going to wonder why you never did this before.  If you build one, take a photo and send it to us or share it with us at
