Many thousands of South Africans are hurt or killed each year in raging fires caused by the use of unsafe paraffin appliances. The Arivi stove is designed not to ignite or explode when knocked over and the flame self-extinguishes immediately when the stove is moved.
It reduces the amount of time and money spent cooking because it is very efficient. It could save an average household around 32% of the money they usually spend on paraffin. It will also reduce indoor air pollution that could cause respiratory ailments, as it produces less than half the amount of carbon monoxide required by law and creates almost no particles or smoke.
