Fuel for cooking represents more than 60% of the total energy bill of households in developing countries. Many high performance fuel burners exist and allow an efficient production of heat used for cooking. However most of the people use standard cooking metallic pan with very poor thermal efficiencies causing them to burn much more fuel than really necessary, i.e. more expenses. The first and direct impact is the lowering of their purchasing power.
2.5 billion people, representing nearly 360 millions households in developing countries, rely on solid fuel such as fuel wood primarily, charcoal, agricultural waste and animal dung to meet their energy needs for cooking. In most of these countries, this biomass-based energy usage corresponds to up to 90% of the total energy consumption of households.
The soot produced by biomass combustion causes health problem mainly respiratory leading to an estimated 1.3 million premature deaths per year directly attributed to indoor air pollution. This concerns mostly women and children. In addition to that, valuable time and effort is devoted to fuel collection instead of education or income generation. Environmental damage can also result, such as land degradation and regional air pollution.
1- Boil it
Put all the ingredients inside the pot. Make sure it is well covered. Heat up until it starts boiling. Be aware of the regular cooking time of the food in order to minimize or even eliminate the need to regularly open the pot and check the readiness of the food.
2 - Stop heating and wait
Once the meal boils, a coninuous heating of the pots is no longer necessary. Kept close, the inside temperature of the pot decreases by only 2-4° after about 50 minutes.
