Advantages of Using KOKO Cooker

In cities across Sub-Saharan Africa, charcoal, fuelwood, and kerosene dominate the market for cooking fuel, with a devastating impact on the environment and public health. Charcoal causes massive deforestation, food insecurity and indoor air pollution that kills millions annually. KOKO’s tech enables KOKO Fuel to provide significant cost savings vs dirty fuels, as well as other quality of life improvements.

Dirty fuels dominate the cooking market in Africa’s 40 largest cities, says Greg Murray, CEO of Koko Networks, which operates in Kenya. Only the affluent can afford to use gas for cooking, with kerosene and charcoal used by those at the bottom of the urban pyramid. Such fuels are major contributors to respiratory diseases, carbon emissions and deforestation.

KOKO Cooker Disadvantages

Koko is an amazing clean cooker that is not only affordable but also presentable to Kenya households. Besides all this benefits, there is a good number of users who have found it not quite economical compared to conventional Gas or Charcoal.

KOKO Cooker Disadvantages

The canister is too small that you have to be making daily trips to the KOKOpoint to refill.

The KOKOpoints are not yet well distributed in major places in Kenya. Having KOKO support in only three cities in Kenya, its quite expensive for consumers in the rest of the country to use KOKO cookers.
