Product Description

EcoZoom's Versa rocket stove offers the flexibility to cook with wood, charcoal, or solid biomass fuel in a rugged and durable design. The versatility of the stove makes it your perfect outdoor cooking stove for almost any need. The Versa is its 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 new 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 new rigid stainless steel handles are covered with silicone grips to ensure they stay cool even when the stove is hot.

Great for emergencies or camping.
G. Edwards
It uses wood or charcoal or biomass, even things like pine cones, pine needles to keep the fire going.
Annette Dawkins
It's a well built product, very solid and works as advertised with charcoal or biomass.

As a Scout leader I've found this stove useful since nearly anywhere we camp there's plenty of fuel to feed it. With this stove there's no reason to pack fuel. We use a large Dutch oven on top and cook our meals in that. It also works well with large cast iron fry pans, which distribute the heat nicely. You can also get a steel wok that fits nicely in the center for stir fry. Keep the kids not working on the meal busy by having them gather the fuel ;-)

This model is the best one of the series, it has the 6 pot supports and both a fuel door and a lower door for controlling the burn rate. This is a stove you have to tend to. The fuel chamber is pretty small (which helps it burn so clean), but this means that in a matter of 15 minutes it'll burn out if you don't tend to it and constantly feed it sticks. You don't have to put many in for it to be hot, but you do have to lay them out on the feed rack and keep them feeding into it. Don't think you can fire it up, walk away for an hour like you can with charcoal and come back to a cooked meal. This is not that type of stove. You can use it with charcoal and coal and then it'll burn for much longer.

I like knowing I have this stove in my garage since in any kind of emergency I can get a very hot fire going and there will be fuel. For the Zombie Prep group, it's also a covert way to cook, because the flame is contained (not visible) and there's essentially no smoke it burns so cleanly. In nearly every emergency, there's wood of some type around that would be freely available to fuel this stove.

An easy way to light this stove is to place a small chunk of fire starter (sawdust packed with wax) in the burn chamber on your first few sticks and light that. In a few minutes it'll be hot and burning well.

This is a great product. Heavy duty, efficient, and handy. Great for emergencies or camping. I've used both wood and coal in it to test it and the item preformed very well with both.

I used this stove twice to test it. Both test performed the same (Test 2. note the temp was 80 and it took 17 min. to boil the water). The ambient air temperature was 94 F humidity was about 8% I used the branches from a silver maple tree that had fallen on to my lawn. They were about half an inch in diameter. I broke them with my hands into six inch long pieces and put 6 of them in the stove trough the side opening. I then found some dead redwood tree leafs that had fallen and put a hand full of then down the top of the stove. I struck a wooden match and put it down the top hole to light the fire, I had to do this twice to get it started. All the fuel was very dry and old. The fuel started burning and and I placed a 15 Lt. Cabalas Dutch oven on top of the stove, it was filled with 10 to 13 liters of water. The water was brought to fast fast boil in 15 minutes. I had to add three hand full's of twigs during the test. It burns hot and fast. The best part is that it uses the twigs that fall from the trees that I have to remove before I mow the lawn, now I can save them in my wood shed and use them for the stove if needed. I hope this explains the stove it is worth the price and a practical stove for home use. It is not a back packing stove, but would work fine for car camping. The stove is heavy and well made. I have it stored in a safe dry place in case, I need it. review Oct 2012

The stove arrived covered in a fine reddish powder that came from the ceramic insulation being worn down during shipping. The screw holding the insulation to the back of the door was loose. So were the screws that help hold the latches taut. As a result, the doors could freely open and close during shipping and the insulation on the back of the door lost a fair amount of material rubbing against the inner parts of the stove. The picture of the stove on the box actually shows a metal lining covering the door insulation, which would have protected it, but I guess it isn't manufactured that way anymore. As it stands, the insulation will continue to wear down since the nut holding it in place wears out the ceramic as well.

The rest of the stove is fine.

Very fast shipping! I have bought 4-5 other stoves looking for the right one and found most have some fuel compromises. Most need for propane, white gas, butane etc. This one does not! Are you kidding me? A hot, sustained fire with just pine needles, twigs and sticks...wow! Very easy to use. If you can start a fire you can use this stove. We have been with out power due to storms many times; often up to 5 days. This stove will be the go-to cooker stove from now on. Very well made and well packaged. Save your $ and searching. This is the one you want. Get some cast iron pans, dutch oven and a water boiler (all available from Amazon) and your ready. Looking forward to a preppers dinner soon.

The Zoom Versa is absolutely as efficient as claimed - I was able to easily boil 4 quarts of water at a rolling boil using just 3-4 sticks, feeding them into the combustion chamber at a modest rate. The product appears to be well made and provides good stability and support for even the heaviest pots on top. Once the stove was hot the amount of smoke generated was minimal.

However, operating the Versa still has much in common with open wood fire cooking when compared to cleaner fuels such as propane or white gas. I had hoped that the hotter, more complete combustion of wood gases would prevent the accumulation of soot on cookware, but this was not the case, I still ended up with the familiar black coating on the bottom of aluminum and stainless pots. Another minor annoyance is that ash tends to spill out from the bottom door, making a mess in windy conditions.

Still, overall the Zoom Versa provides an efficient and convenient way to cook with wood, subject to the limitations of wood as fuel.
