Fridael Woodgas stove

Fire has fascinated man since the beginning of time. It has given mankind its development, its freedom and its happiness. Making a wood fire is and always will be a beloved activity for many of us. Traditional fire cooking can be quite the hassle and unpleasant due to the smoke. We have found a way to make firecooking easy and enjoyable. Introducing: The Burnwise.

This woodgas stove can make fire out of dry natural material which can be found everywhere around you. This way your garden can be designed in such a way that it will become a supplier of fuel for your woodgas stove. You can decide, cooking for free or not!? You can be independent from any infrastructure whatsoever, as there are no gas-bottles, electricity, coal or other fossil fuels involved. Also, the remaining ash that is left over from burning you can give back to your garden as a fertilizer.

Kickstarter Campaign

Fridael is our family name and thus we are a family owned business from the Netherlands. We believe that independence means freedom and we like to think of creative solutions for becoming as self-sufficient as possible.  We decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to help us spread the word worldwide so that we can keep developing the Burnwise and our philosophy. Last year due to covid-19 all the farmers markets we usually attend to sell the Burnwises were cancelled. This turns out to be a blessing in disguise because now we can take the next step and go worldwide! With the money from our backers we can invest in our logistic process and upscale production.
