A fireless cooker is a box, basket or any other container filled with insulating material such as dried grass, paper, sawdust, wool or dry banana leaves. After heating up food over a stove or fire, the cooking pot is placed in the fireless cooker and covered with an insulated lid, where it can continue cooking and stay hot for several hours.
The fireless cooker is an environmentally friendly way to cook. It uses much less fuel and saves hours spent in the kitchen, allowing women to take control of their own time. The food is healthier too, because more of the nutrients are retained and there’s no chance of it getting burned!
Fireless cookers are simple to make and can also be sold to supplement the family income.
We all need a health check from time to time and your fireless cooker is no different. So each one is carefully monitored on an ongoing basis. Over two visits per year, an A Rocha Uganda staff member will run through a checklist to check the condition of the cooker and that it is being correctly used and maintained.
By including a Regular Health Check with your purchase, you will help to monitor your fireless cooker for a year, ensuring that it continues to contribute positively to the wellbeing of a family and save trees from being cut down.
