The Guatemala Stove Project (GSP) helps alleviate these problems by building improved masonry cookstoves that are adapted to Mayan cooking methods. A GSP stove uses 50% less wood than the traditional 3-stone fire, thereby saving precious trees and reducing carbon emissions. The larger cooking surface allows for a wider variety of foods to be prepared and water can be boiled and used for washing and drinking.
The crowning glory of this kitchen appliance is the chimney pipe that takes the toxic smoke out of the house. It is an ‘improved cooking stove’ and while most of us would find it rudimentary, Mayan women much prefer it to cooking on the floor over an open fire. To date 6,800 GSP stoves have been built.
