Wholy sh#t, that's crazy. Care to explain what's going on in the photo? Was that insulated or inside of something? Any more photos? The concrete in my stove will be the major difference, absorbing the heat as a mass, and evenly distributing at the same time. If I encounter anything like that, or if my riser fails, I will remove my removable lid, and insert a stainless steel riser... That must be a design flaw or heavily insulated, as mine is not...

Yes of coures it is designed to operate below 900 degrees. I'd hate to see ANY rocket stove achieve anything higher than that! Lmao. That indeed would be a catostrophic issue lol. But I don't think ANYONE will ever run into 1000 degree teritory. That's just craziness... If your rocket produces surfaces that are above 900 degrees, you might have to re-design for residential use, because that sounds like forge temps, not residntial heater temps. My stove is designed to cook on and has a removable dutch oven, if any surface was 900 degrees, I'd burn my food! Lmao. That's just not practical at all!
