The Chulha low smoke stove

The Chulha low smoke stove
Is a low tech solution designed within a philanthropy project by Philips Design.
This stove is a further development of the traditional cooking stove in India. During cooking on this traditional stoves, the houses are full of smoke.
The poorest families even don’t have a stove. They cook inside the house on an open fire, using 3 stones to support a pot.

The smoke in the kitchen is causing a lot of health problems: respiration diseases like pneumonia or nose, mouth and eyes infections.

To solve this problem, Philips designed a new stove with a chimney pipe. With the Chulha you even can save up to 50% of wood comparing to the traditional way of cooking. The stove is quite simple and can be build nearly anywhere
