There is of course the old standby terra cotta clay pot. Terra cotta clay pots have none of the major failings of fireplaces or inserts. The heat does not go up the flue and stays in the home. There are no dangers in cooking and heating water.

Those of us who have dedicated ourselves and our life styles to self sufficiency and providing all of the necessities and comforts of “modern” life for ourselves without the interference of government, business, or environmental destruction have tried several methods of producing heat.

Heat is a necessity and has been since man first made fire. Your need for heat depends in part on the variety of the weather cycle that you experience. Heat provides the means for cooking, heating water for bathing and washing clothes, and producing other forms of energy.

British ingenuity with a bit of help from ancient Middle Eastern low tech heat engineering has produced the least expensive, safest, and most efficient heater that has ever been known. The device can be made from common materials that cost less than $25. It only costs eight pennies a day to run this incredible heater.

Complete instructions and a parts list are below. The design is the key to safer and more efficient cooking and heat.
