The former founder of the StoveTecRocket Stove improved upon Aprovecho’s stove
design shortcomings, incorporated Dr. Larry Wininarski’s input, and partnered
with the World’s leading biomass and bio-gas product manufacturer to bring these
new advanced patented technologies forward into our SilverFire line.
These design improvements address the quality and design shortcomings
found in other biomass rocket stoves.
Cheap clay stoves and extruded combustion chambers are heavy
and fragile. Thin, mild, cold rolled steel
stove bodies are subject to oxidation and limit stove life. Our 3rd Generation stove, the SilverFire Rocket Stoves,
represents numerous technological innovations, incorporating both primary and
secondary airflow to improve combustion, thermal efficiency, reduce fuel use,
and lower emissions.
The SilverFire Survivor is a portable, fast, fun, outdoor stove. It features a large rectangle combustion
chamber that accepts uniform fuel insertion, rather than the common round clay
chamber that restricts lateral fuel access.
The custom black stainless steel door is utilized in the closed position
while cooking. This retains more heat in
the chamber for more complete combustion and improves safety and ember
control. Many National Parks require self contained
stove designs and open stove designs may result in the user being fined.
Stove operation is simple.
Add paper or other small tinder to ignite small twigs, sticks, yard
scrub, or other flammable biomass. These
stoves have been successfully used in locations scarce in fuel, such as in the
Pacific Islands where only palm fronds or small pieces of coconut shell are
available. This stove is designed for
minimal sized fuel, small thin fuel pencil thick fuel is ideal. Keep twigs or other thin fuel very close
together to maximize efficient biomass gas combustion.
After igniting tinder simply meter fuel towards the rear of
the combustion chamber. Keep door closed
except when metering or loading fuel into stove. Open stove door with a stick or twig only, to
prevent burning fingers. As soon as the
stove is lit and flames are observed start cooking, no time is required to
start, unlike with cooking with charcoal.
Many third world countries populations cook everyday using man made charcoal. Producing this charcoal creates pollution both during the production
process as well as during the cooking process. Global
deforestation due to third world charcoal production is an unsustainable environmental disaster. 70% to
80% of the energy of wood is wasted during the charcoal production process and
the yield is 4 to 1. Only 1 piece of
charcoal is obtained from every 4 pieces of wood used during charcoal
production. Charcoal is very inefficient
for boiling large volumes of water for emergency use, recreation, or daily
Everyday over 3
billion people in the developing world cook food on
open fires or on inefficient cook stoves fueled by coal, charcoal, or solid
biomass. This jeopardizes human health,
contributes to household & community air pollution, and impacts
environmental devastation by depleting forests and increasing soil erosion. 4
million premature deaths occur every year due to exposure from toxic smoke
emissions. Consequently women and children are disproportionately impacted by
household air pollution.
- A Silver Fire Survivor Rocket Stove is also a great tool for camping, survival and emergency preparedness.
fuel is scarce and your resources are limited in times of disaster or
emergency you can know that a clean burning, high efficiency rocket
stove will be able to provide your cooking and potable water needs
without a problem.
SilverFire’s mission as a leading
designer of clean cook stoves is to protect humans from the health and
environmental impact of inefficient cook stoves and fuel use.

Introducing the SilverFire® Hunter, a lightweight, portable
natural draft chimney stove designed for both indoor & outdoor use! The Hunter is a top lit updraft gasifier
(TLUD), powered by twigs, yard scrub, or any flammable biomass. TLUD’s stoves utilize a batch fed combustion
It is simple to operate:
- Vent the chimney outdoors to eliminate all
- Insert vertical
positioned fuel into the combustion chamber; next place a little tinder on top
- To fine tune your flame adjust
the ventilation door at the bottom of the stove. That’s all there is to it!
The portable SilverFire® Hunter model opens up a
new frontier in biomass clean cook stoves.
You now have the capacity to eliminate all household emissions!
Our Hunter may be the most important
emergency or disaster stove you could own, since you cannot plan when a
strike. Outdoor Rocket Stoves & TLUD stoves without chimneys are fun and
convenient to use in warm weather, but it is a different scenario in a real disaster
and in poor weather.
The option to cook inside is very important, but at the same time to be able
eliminate all household emissions to protect your family's health is
critical. It may not be safe to go
outdoors and the ability to cook indoors is important.
The Sivlerfire Hunter gives you the ability to cook indoors under shelter, and is
a key advantage over stoves without chimneys. Most rocket stoves & TLUDs sold do not have chimneys
and are designed for outdoor use only. And most TLUD designs are faster cooking and
cleaner burning than many rocket stoves.
The Silverfire Hunter is easy to light, easily
adjusted, lightweight, and cooks very rapidly.
Thin, tight packed fuel produces a very rapid boil. In the event you want to slow the cooking
process down (e.g. slow cooking with cast iron) add thicker, dense fuel into
the combustion chamber. Dense material
takes longer to burn, making it ideal for slow cooking. Combustion in the Hunter produces very little
smoke or soot, if using dry fuel.
TLUD technology has been around for
over 100 years. Primary air passes
through your fuel as it combusts in the combustion chamber and becomes carbon
monoxide gas. The carbon monoxide gas is
then burned and mixed with the preheated secondary air, above the fire. The secondary air combustion appearance is
like a gas stove and is know as a "Chinese burner". The end result of your biomass fuel is to
produce minimal amounts of ash, soot, and bio-char, which is required to be
removed from the stove after cooking for maximum stove performance.
The 3 inch chimney consists of an elbow piece
that inserts into the back of the stove, and four individual stacking
sections. Most hardware stores carry standard
off-the-shelf 3 inch chimney pipe & elbows to configure your specific
walled, insulated chimney pipe not required.
Refer to chimney installation recommendations for specific tent stove
- Keep hot chimney away from
nylon or other low melting point fabrics.
The SilverFire Hunter is especially suited for use in tents that are built for camp stoves that use a stovepipe. This will allow for much warmth while at the same time convenient cooking in bad weather.

SilverFire Stainless Steel Double Layered Dragon Stove Pot
The SilverFire Stainless Steel Dragon Pot is amazing for SilverFire Survivor, Hunter, Super Dragon, or residential gas cooktops!
Our 6.5 liter (1.7 gallon) Dragon Pot is a must have stove option to
increase your cooking efficiency on your biomass stove or home gas
It will provide your family with just under 2 gallons of emergency
water, quickly bring a pot of water to a boil to cook pasta or noodles,
provide an adequate amount of water to sanitize your cookware. Just say
no to inefficient pot skirt designs, Kelly Kettles (largest model is
just under only 1.5 liter) and other water systems that do not provide
adequate potable water for an individual or family! A SilverFire
skirted Dragon Pot is a much more efficient and logical option. Bring
large pots of water, sauces, soups, or stews to a boil incredibly fast
by capturing additional heat within the skirt, compared to a traditional
pot which heat transfer is lost after hitting the bottom of the pot and
lost deflected outwards in the atmosphere. The Dragon pot skirt forces
flames to lick the sides of the pot wall, capturing heat greater heat
transfer than with a traditional pots or pot skirts. This amazing pot
is experiencing a high level of repeat sales, where customers are
requesting a second amazing Dragon pot for dedicated use with their
residential gas stove. The reduction of boiling times on their gas
range for boiling pasta, noodles or other liquids is saving both time,
energy, and expense.
The Dragon pot is the only stainless steel double layered
bottom, full skirted pot on the planet. Our stainless steel, double
pot reduces boiling time by 5 minutes or more, bringing a minimum of 5
liters of water to a
boil. This represents a 25% time
reduction to a boil or more! It also reduces emissions, fuel use, and
time spent having to clean sooty pot exteriors and shabby pot skirts.
The full skirted pot is also a wind block, providing more protection
than pot skirts. This pot is ideal cooking in windy conditions, when
other products will fail. A designated skirted pot also insures the
correct gap is maintained, compared to pot skirts which often lose their
shape, or correct gap to maximize heat transfer.
This full skirted pot design is significantly safer and more
efficient than a pot skirt. We do not believe pot skirts are viable, in
comparison to a skirted pot. Pot skirts are easily lost, cumbersome,
dirty, poor fitting, often low quality, and sold with other low quality
mild steel rocket
stove brands! A full skirted pot is much more efficient than a low profile pot skirt.
Our fixed Dragon Pot skirt protrudes
below our Survivor cast iron cook top, so the pot is firmly seated in
cannot easily fly off stove burning children or cook when stirred, as
with a pot skirt or regular pot perched upon a stove top! Pot skirts
often lose their intended shape, are dirty, hard to clean, and often can
injure the cook while cleaning (due to sharp edges and low quality
assurance issues), as found early Aprovecho pot skirt designs.
stainless steel pot bottom is constructed with two layers of quality stainless
steel for extended shelf life, unlike other lower quality thin single bottom
layer skirted pots. This pot is twice the build and fit & finish of
the last skirted pot design we introduced at StoveTec.
Best of all there is no dirty or sooty pot skirt to loose or waste time cleaning.
also love fact the Dragon Pot skirt exterior is soot free, since soot
under the skirt or on bottom of pot, reducing exterior pot cleaning
Our skirted pot is much faster boiling water for disasters,
emergencies, or regular home cooking. A skirted pot with a lid is much
faster than a slow heating pasteurizers, distillers and numerous other
water purification kettles we have tested.
Our Stainless Steel Dragon Pot is significantly superior to any
pot skirt we have tested and why
we do not provide pot skirts
with the SilverFire Survivor. This Dragon pot can also be used on the
Hunter and Super Dragon stove models, as well as your home cooking on
your gas range top. Many of our customers are purchasing a Dragon pot
for their home gas cooktop and a second pot for their biomass stove.
Just say no to pot skirts and improve emissions, fuel use, and safety
the full skirted Dragon pot! Any cook is going to appreciate the
time to cook having no pot skirt to scrub or keep track of! Unlike most
outdoor cookware this pot is a large volume stainless steel constructed
pot, unlike most outdoor cookware made of Aluminum. New studies are
showing up to 4 milligrams of aluminum are absor

More Silver Fire SURVIVOR Information from SilverFire Inc.:
Introducing the upgraded SilverFire® Survivor 3rd Generation rocket
stove! This state of the art clean cook stove is durable, fun, and
fast. All rocket stoves can cook a hamburger or boil small pots of
water. This is not an important cooking or emergency preparedness
performance end point. Providing a minimum of a gallon of emergency
drinking water, or a pot of water to cook a meal (5 liters of water or
more), or an adequate amount of water to sanitize your cookware is what
is important. One of the most important stove tests to measure
meaningful stove performance from one stove to another is the WBT (5
liter Water Boiling Test).
Any rocket stove can efficiently cook a hamburger or boil small volumes of water, however real stove performance
is measured bringing the International Standard of 5 liters of water to
a boil. Most rocket stoves we test fail these simple tests. The
unfortunate fact is we have not tested USA made rocket stove that can
meet the International requirement of boiling 5 liters of water, much
less doing it with only 500 grams of fuel (SilverFire® Survivor, 2013).
At the Aprovecho stove lab in 2008 we tested the Grover rocket stove
which failed the WBT, after 1750 grams of fuel could not bring the the
International standard of 5 liters of water to a boil. Homemade and non
insulated rocket stoves do not perform even this well. A well designed
rocket stove must incorporate numerous design principles. Most
homemade and commercial rocket stoves have significant shortcomings
incorporating both combustion principles and the correct cross sectional
air flow to maximize heat transfer with the stove top. Correct cross
sectional flow is as important as insulating the combustion chamber.
Survivor uses minimal fuel, produces little emissions or smoke. Our
end product is fine ash, not large embers of char that decrease
ventilation, fill the combustion chamber, and choke off stove, retarding
efficient combustion. The SilverFire Survivor is a revolutionary
design, incorporating secondary air, primary air, and a door for a
hotter fire. This results in cleaner combustion than other rocket stove
Crude homemade rocket stoves and poorly designed
cooking rocket stoves leave larger pieces of char and embers, since
combustion is not as complete as with the SilverFire Survivor. The
Survivor door is designed to be always falling down on the fuel to
retain a hotter fire inside the firebox. Your grandmother did not cook
with the firebox doors open, nor should you with a rocket stove. We do
not recommend cooking with the door open, but unfortunately many reviews
have shown our product used with the door in the open position, which
makes for less efficient combustion.
Complete combustion and high
thermal efficiency is the important outcome with our stove, resulting
in fine ash. Fine ash is the end product of complete combustion and a
well designed cook stove. The advanced design is intended for improved
efficiency and durability. Compare our superior quality to other brands
of rocket stoves, and draw your own conclusions. We now are
introducing 5 upgrades from our initial (sold out) Spring
product launch. Our Summer 2013 Survivor has 5 new upgrades from our
initial Spring 2013 (sold out) product launch.
The new Survivor design improvement upgrades include:
1. The Perlite insulation is no longer available and has been swapped out for premium rock mineral wool insulation
to eliminate Perlite residue (fine dust) that was evident with rough
handling by ground transportation services, during transport and
2. Handles are now shipped inside stove and attached
by customer to prevent the cosmetic dings we saw with ground
transportation handlers. Pem nuts are now embedded in the stainless
steel stove wall and 6 fine thread Phillip head machine screws are
provided to attach handles to stove.
3. Our original cast iron stove top had 4 pot supports, Our new upgraded cast iron stove top, now includes 5 pot supports! Our rocket stove cast iron top is the thickest and most durable of any brand currently on the market.
4. An additional temperature reducing baffle plate
has been added to the bottom of the stove, for safer handling and to
decrease temperature on cooking surfaces. Our stove has is the coolest
surface temperature below the stove of any product on the market.
5. A fuel gauge
has been added to the custom black stainless steel stove door (a new
rocket stove design feature)! The flame shaped diameter fuel gauge is
intended to remind folks this is the actual diameter of fuel required
for the stove or less! While you can added larger fuel in the
stove, standard pencil diameter sized twigs and yard debris is all that
is required to cook with. The fuel gauge also provides a second option
to lift the stove door when adding fuel, or moving it forward on the
fuel shelf. The door is designed to be down when cooking! Tip: Numerous
reviews on the web are showing inappropriate cooking techniques with
the door open and anywhere from 4 to 10 times too much fuel required!
6. New upgrade ventilation design under grate for improved operation when used for extended cooking durations.
7. Raised combustion floor for improved ash access & clean out.
Our lightweight fiber insulation is superior to
extruded clay combustion chamber insulation, due to the increased durability
and significant reduction in stove weight. The SilverFire Survivor
weighs 12.5 lbs (5.66 KG), which represents approximately a 50%
reduction of weight compared to the StoveTec Deluxe & EcoZoom clay
combustion chamber designed stoves. The SilverFire cast iron top is
significantly thicker than the StoveTec, Eco Zoom and early EnviroFit
stoves. The SilverFire rugged
stainless steel body ensures ensure long stove life compared to mild
steel painted stove bodies used by our competition. We also do not use
pop can thin, cheap steel liners that were subject to fail in the field.
If you’re going to
cooking for emergencies, recreation, or with everyday cooking all that
required is a few twigs or a little flammable field scrub. Little fuel
is all it takes in a SilverFire Survivor to boil large volumes of water
for drinking, cooking, or sanitizing
The SilverFire founder Todd Albi was the founder and former Managing Director of StoveTec®. He
fielded StoveTec / Aprovecho’s rocket stove product complaints and
quality assurance issues that plagued the organization, impacting
StoveTec, EcoZoom and early EnviroFit stoves. Todd created SilverFire®, to
improve stove quality, eliminate stove quality assurance issues, and develop the
highest quality clean cooking products possible. The objective was to
incorporate Dr. Larry Wininarski’s best design principles and input and tie SilverFire® partnerships with the World’s leading biomass & biogas product manufacturers to bring the
highest quality, most advanced patented technologies forward. These
design improvements address the quality and design shortcomings found in most other biomass rocket stove designs.
Cheap clay stoves and extruded combustion chambers
are heavy and fragile. Thin mild cold rolled steel stove bodies found
with many rocket stove manufacturers are subject to oxidation and can
stove life. Poor quality, thin cast iron tops crack. Pop can thin
steel combustion chambers used in the Deluxe StoveTec, & EcoZoom
Versa are subject to failure in the field. Our SilverFire 2nd
Generation rocket stove represents numerous technological innovations,
incorporating both primary and secondary airflow to improve combustion,
efficiency, reduce fuel use, and lower emissions. SilverFire does not
use cheap ceramic insulation or thinly cast stove tops found in most
leading Rocket stove brands (note hollow cast pot supports in photo
The Survivor is a portable, fast, fun, rugged outdoor cook stove. It features a large rectangle combustion chamber that accepts
uniform fuel insertion, rather than the common round clay chamber, that
restricts lateral fuel access. The custom black stainless steel door is
utilized in the closed position while cooking. This retains more heat in
the chamber for more complete combustion and improves safety with great ember
control. National Parks often permit only self-contained cook
stoves. Users of open stove designs may
be cited or fined. Please check the
regulations in your area.
We also have numerous product
options for our Survivor. Our new Stainless Steel Dragon Pot (1.7
gallon / 6.5 liter) is an exceptional option. Skirted pots are
significantly superior to pot skirts for increasing heat transfer,
reducing emissions & fuel use. They also provide the cook and young
children protection from burns, since when the pot is stirred or
bumped. The Dragon Pot cannot slide or fall off the stove, as easily as
a traditional pot. Cooks and children are often burned when stirring
pots outdoors on unstable surfaces. The full skirted pot design has a
built in pot skirt that protrudes below the cast iron cook top, which
prevents the pot from sliding off when stirred. It also reduces time by
over 25% when heating over a gallon of water (5 liters) to a boil. The
exterior also stays clean since soot can only form under the skirt and
on the bottom of the pot. This is a real time saver over pot skirts,
which are sooty, cumbersome, and require extensive cleaning time.
A fuel shelf is provided with every stove. Our portable cook stoves
are insulated maximizing heat transfer into the cooking vessel and are
not designed for heating.
Our self contained clean cook stove operation is
simple. Add paper or other small tinder to ignite small twigs, sticks,
yard scrub, or other flammable biomass. These stoves have been
successfully used in locations scarce in fuel, such as in the Pacific Islands
where only palm fronds or small pieces of coconut shell are available.
This stove is designed for minimal sized fuel. Small thin fuel (pencil
thickness) is ideal. Keep twigs or other thin fuel very close together to
maximize efficient combustion.
After igniting tinder simply meter fuel towards the
rear of the combustion chamber. Keep door closed except when metering or
loading fuel into stove to maximize combustion chamber efficiency and temperature.
Open stove door with a stick or twig only, to prevent burning fingers. As
soon as the stove is lit and flames are observed you are ready start cooking, no waiting time is
required as with cooking with charcoal.
SilverFire is not a proponent of charcoal use. Charcoal produces pollution both during the
production process and cooking process. Global deforestation due to
charcoal production is an unsustainable environmental disaster. 70%
to 80% of the energy of wood is wasted during the charcoal production process
and the yield is 4 to 1. Only 1 piece of charcoal is obtained from every
4 pieces of wood used during charcoal production. Charcoal is very
inefficient for boiling large volumes of water for emergency use, recreation,
or daily cooking.
