About

BURN Manufacturing designs, produces and distributes Africa’s best-selling, most durable and economical charcoal and wood clean cookstoves. Not only do our products save money, fuel and natural resources, but they also dramatically reduce harmful indoor smoke emissions which can cause significant health problems, even death. With more than 800,000 stoves sold since commencing manufacturing operations in 2013, BURN has established itself as Africa’s most trusted cookstove brand thanks to our unwavering commitment to innovative research and design, manufacturing excellence, and customer care. BURN manufactures its products in sub-Saharan Africa’s only state-of-the-art clean cookstove manufacturing facility. We are proud to employ 240 team members throughout Kenya and East Africa, and support a workforce which is 60 percent female, thus empowering women in roles traditionally considered to be “for men only.”
