  • How to put off the fire if we have finished cooking and there are still fire and wood inside ?
    It depends on the type of the stoves. For the Rocket Works, Rocket Zama Zama, and Field Dragon, it is easy as it is just the same as the traditional stoves, that is by taking the overleft wood and put it off. While for the stove with batch system, for Prime stove wood and pellet, just closed the primary and secondary air then put the lid on. While with Philip just turn off the fan. Once the fire is off then you will have to empty the stoves by turning it up side down. Actually if you buy the stove, each stove will have a manual on how to use and maintain the stoves.
  • Can we leave the stove or do other chores  while cooking?
    For stoves with batch system, once the wood is burning properly you can leave it, (of course depending on what you are cooking, as for prime one batch can last for about 90 minutes.

  • Will the Clean Stove produces smoke ?
    Clean stove will also still have smoke but only a little and in most cases only during the ignition time.
