Offering sustainable technology to the residents of impoverished countries; empowering them to improve their quality of life.

Integrated Solar Cooking is the safest, most convenient way to cook food without consuming fuels or heating up the kitchen.


  1. On a Sunny Day the SOLAR COOKER is used to cook food using the heat from the sun
  2. On an overcast or rainy day the ROCKET STOVE is used to cook food using significantly less fuel than is required by an open three stone fire
  3. Whether using the cookit or the rocket stove food can be placed in the HAY BASKET (any insulated box, basket, etc) and will be kept warm for up to eight hours. More importantly, partically cooked food can be removed from the solar cooker or the rocket stove and placed in the hay basket to complete the cooking process. The heat trapped within the pot continues the cooking process.
  4. Both the Solar Cooker and the Rocket Stove can be used to heat water for the purpose of pasteurization. The WAPI is used to indicate when the temperature required for pasteurization has been reached. The WAPI is reusable.
