About this project
Enki Stove Wild is a camp stove, designed to run with every kind of biomass, avoiding the transportation of gas tanks or charcoal, everywhere and without smoke. Wild is not a survival item. Wild is a professional stove, it’s powerful and you can use it to cook and grill as a pro, without wasting a lot of wood or gas.
HOW DOES IT WORKS
Enki Stove Wild is easy to use: you need just a few branches or other dry biomass, a small battery or a solar panel and a fire starter.
Insert biomass into the stove chamber
Cover the top of the fuel with flammable material as dry biomass or a fire starter
When the flame covers up all the chamber top, connect the battery or the solar panel
Now you’re ready to enjoy your clean and powerful flame!
Here is the video instructions
WHAT MAKES ENKI STOVE WILD SO SPECIAL?
What’s it about Enki Stove Wild compared with a top-of-the-line camp stove? As outdoor addicted, we found many issues and critical points in traditional camp stoves and we decided to create the ultimate camp stove: Enki Stove Wild
Save time, money and worries, just leaving gas tanks
Transporting camping propane tanks in the backpack or in the car is definitely not our idea of comfortable ride. With Enki Stove Wild, you will not need it anymore. All that you can use is around you, in nature. If you need an extra charge, you can also buy a 15 kg wood pellet bag: it costs about 4$ and allows you to cook up to 55 hours! Our devices do not need long preparation, as charcoal grills do, and they are ready to cook in a few seconds.
Powerful as it needs
When you have to cook for just a few people, you must carry a huge tank with you. Until now. The two different sizes of Enki Stove Wild are the solution: portable and light, suitable for a small party, up to 4 people; strong and more powerful, for bigger groups. The adjustable flame allows a complete control between power, heat and duration.
Lighter than the gas tanks you should carry for the same power
Enki Stove Wild weights 1.3 kg and Wild+ 2.7 kg: that will be all the weight you need to carry, for a small ride or for a long trip, surrounded by nature as well.
Design to last forever
Enki Stove devices are built with aluminium 1000 series and stainless steel AINSI 316; these materials are also used on nautical manufacture. We choose only reliable and long-lasting materials to withstand to heat and storms. Enki Stove Wild will be your best travel companion.
Integrated wind shield and pot holder, designed to fit in every situation
Every Enki Stove Wild is a unique item containing all you can need. In this way, forgetting something at home is quite impossible. Enki Stove Wild is not supposed to be a problem, rather a solution.
Designed and made in Italy
Strong and reliable are not synonymous of bad. We care a lot about the design of our stoves and each particular has a specific function: the conical shape for strength and stability; 3D laser cut for a light but crushproof structure.
ISO 9600 certification
Enki Stove Wild is entirely manufactured in Italy by high-precision mechanic workshop. The laboratory follows strict productive standards, required also by medical venture and high voltage transportation.
Why should I use Enki Stove Wild instead of a traditional grill?
Because it is a real gourmet kitchen tool, not just a way out
We designed Enki Stove Wild not only to be a valid replacement of your home burner but wood powered. We designed our stove from the ground up, rethinking the outdoor cooking experience. We start our project from the fire of our dreams: powerful, reliable and ready for anything. It is smokeless because we care about you and the planet.
Because you have never thought about how much carbon dioxide is linked to charcoal production and use
Every time you burn 1kg of charcoal for a cook out, 3,67kg of CO2 are released in the air. Yes, the ribs you’re cooking are producing the same amount of CO2 produced by a SUV for a 100 km trip. Even a traditional bonfire with 10kg of wood produces 15kg of CO2 as much as two days of home heating. Enki Stove Wild traps all the carbon produced into the soil, improves the feature of the ground and increases oxygen production.
Because no smoke, means no hassle
A smokeless firepit avoids not only smelly clothes, but also serious respiratory illnesses bounded to harmful emissions of a traditional fire. Enki Stove Wild offers just the pleasure of fire, without any bother.
Because it's simple to set and to use
The three feet structure allows a stable positioning of the stove on every kind of ground, avoiding the use of screws or other gadgets. Set, full with every kind of biomass, light up and cook in less than a minute.
Because you will never run out of fuel: off grid is better
Do you know the feeling when the gas tanks runs out of power in the middle of the party? And when the charcoal finishes before your ribs are ready? Stop being scared of it. All that you need is around you, in nature. There is more! If you use Enki Stove Solar Charger, you can also forget battery. Off grid has never been so exciting.
Why did we realise Enki Stove Wild?
Reaching the today’s result it has been hard: it has taken more than 4 years of rounds of prototyping and experiments. What we offer now is a tested product, validated by more than 50 early adopters. Our stove has been tested with their attention and, thanks to their useful and continuous feedbacks, we designed the ultimate stove.
A real need, home heating
Our story began when Ivan, in 2011 was off campus engineering student at university and received an excessive gas bill, which he could not pay. He decided to create a stove without a vent and powered by waste material. He needed a burner with no emissions, capable of burning without pollution, as a home burner. And we got it.
An ancient technology, brought to the top of its features
Pyrolysis is a well-known technology used for a century by industries and, 1500 years ago, American natives used “terra preta”, a particular kind of soil mixed with biochar, extremely fertile. In the last few years, there has been a rediscovery of pyrolysis, but nobody has reached Enki Stove Wild stability and efficiency.
Lots of prototypes, one solution, countless possibilities
The already existent pyrolytic stoves have 3 big issues: they are unstable, they run only with ultra-dry and homogenous biomass and are not rechargeable. After many rounds of prototyping, we designed a stove which can solve all of these problems with a customized air flow which can burn heterogeneous biomasses and used in every condition.
Aluminium and steel, strong where needed, light when possible
Quality is the last thing in which we tried to save money. We use just the best materials avoiding welding joints. The external body is turned from high quality aluminium and anodized, for a deep scratch-resistance. The chamber and the air control items are made with AINSI 316 stainless steel, the same one chosen for boats: it is strong, high temperature resistant and they are thought to last forever. All the main parts can be disassembled with a screwdriver, cleaned and maintained easily.
Who we are
Talking about us
These are some of the organization which have supported or talked about our project

Risks and challenges
Producing a highly crafted object generates risks about manufacturing, pipeline management and the building of distribution network.
Our production line is ready to start, but the quality of materials and the manufacture are very expensive, especially for the made in Italy label maintenance.
We need your help to make our production more efficient increasing lots and reducing costs.
Respecting nature is no more a choice, but a strong duty. With your help, we are going to be able to provide more people a device, which cooks and heats up respecting nature. No matter if in a park or in an African village without gas and electricity.
Short Answer to both question: Yes.
Long Answer: Yes, you need a battery and Yes, it's included with any stove kit (even those including solar panel or other accessories).
Our battery is a high end 10.000mAh Power Bank, powerful enough to power a stove for 50 hours, or to power two stoves for the half of the time. All connectors are USB compliant, which let you charge your phone while cooking.
The power cable to connect the battery is USB, so you can use anything compatible to power the stove, like your laptop or your phone wall charger, for usage in your garden.
There aren't. We worked hard to build a product which is gonna last a lifetime, the only parts which can get any damage is the fan, which is easily replaceable. Besides that, you get a 2 years warranty on any manufacturing defects
Science about our stove is a bit complicate (and patent protected), so we'll try to explain it in the easiest way possible.
The battery runs a fan which regulates airflow into the combustion chamber. Basically the fan draws the gas produced by biomass, and transports it to the top where gas comes out from the holes. Once there, gas mix up with air and powers flame and process.
It is possible to control reaction temperature trough the ventilation: this changes the amount of gas and biochar produced. Temperature range is between 400°C (750°F) and 850°C (1560°F), and biochar amount is between 4% and 50%.
Reaction does not produce any liquid or tar, just gas and dry biochar. The quality of reaction depends on quality and homogeneity of the fuel. We reach the best efficiency with classics wood pellets with less than 30% of humidity. Nonetheless, you can use any kind of biomass, even different kind at the same time, still obtaining a powerful and smoke free flame
Basically no, the flame is so powerful that you don't need to clean the combustion chamber, because it's cleaned by the fire (and you don't need to clean the bottom of your pot as well). The external body is anodized aluminum and can't get rusty, as well as the other parts made of stainless steel: we used the same metal used to make boats, so it's gonna last a lifetime, with no rust at all.
The only maintenance needed is to empty the combustion chamber after you turned off the stove. If you need to clean it, you can wash it like a normal pot, after having the ventilation removed (just a couple of screws).
If you want to save the biochar the answer is yes, as soon as you see the flame turns to a charming blue color.
If not, you can burn Biochar or keep adding fuel. Everything inside the stove will be transformed in gas, keeping your flame powerful and alive
