We don't see many commercial rocket stove ventures ... here's one that dropped in my notification list again.

Cool stove, but I wonder if the mass of the stove would affect the fire.  Also I think feeding of the stove could be an issue. I had a biolite base camp stove that had a similar design and I had issues with starting and feeding the fire. But the major flaw in the biolite stove in my view was the use of a fan to help the fire burn cleaner. The noori rocket stove looks like this would not be an issue.

Those little camp stoves don't have enough of a chimney effect to pull oxygen into the fire so it seems reasonable to me to use a fan.  Does the biolite recharge its own battery using the Peltier effect?

Oh, and that Noori also needs a decent chimney.  Idyllic it might look but the thing is chucking out black carbon that the kids nearby are breathing in.

Yes the stove uses the Peltier effect. My stove's battery was not charging and I tried using a USB male connector to help the battery charge. This did not work but I used the stove anyways. That was a bad idea because the plastic melted to the fan. I will say that I am looking for a good and well priced rocket stove that does not need electricity.
