Versa Rocket Stove by EcoZoom
The Versa Rocket Stove by EcoZoom can burn wood, charcoal, or dried biomass and is our most versatile cook stove. The Versa is a great option for those wanting cook fuel options while still providing the same EcoZoom durability.
Preppercon TV did a really good video review and I thought I would share it with you.
The Versa provides the same efficiency and heat output as the Dura when cooking with wood, while also offering the alternative of a more controlled cooking experience with charcoal. The Versa is the most popular model in the United States and makes for a great camping, patio, or emergency preparedness cooking solution. A fully insulated vertical combustion chamber forces gases to mix with flames when in use, decreasing harmful emissions while boasting tremendous fuel efficiency. The combustion chamber and top door insulation is lined with a refractory metal to provide ultimate durability. Both the main combustion chamber door and the damper door (bottom door) have reinforced metal frames with hinges that serve to securely close the doors and regulate airflow. Lastly, the Versa features EcoZoom’s newly designed three-prong stove top and stainless steel handles. The flattened prongs decrease the chance of chipping the cast iron top while still offering the ability to cook with a flat or rounded bottom pot/pan. The rigid stainless steel handles are covered with silicone grips to ensure they stay cool even when the stove is hot.
Simply put, the Versa offers a versatile outdoor cooking experience with big power in a portable package.

The Versa is like a metal bucket filled with ceramic and a funnel in the middle and a cooking crate. One larger door is meant to start and feed the fire. The smaller door is called a damper door and allows you to control the air flow to turn the flame up or down. Close both doors and the fire is quickly out.
I did not light this but it makes sense how to use this. Camping in a tent you will still have a way to cook a meal. This is built so well, and is not lightweight. It is not made to hike with, due to the weight.
This is where a pan or pot would go. This is the cast iron top that concentrates the heat directly where you need it and allows you to use flat pans or round-bottomed ones.
The top spot is where you put the sticks for the heat. You use the rack on the outside of this door to hold longer sticks and slowly push them into the unit as they burn. The bottom is for the ashes. While using this you need to keep both doors open.
This is great for emergencies or camping. A hot, sustained fire with just twigs or sticks. Very easy to use. If you can start a fire you can use this stove.
