Abstract: In this study, an improved coal stove was designed, fabricated and tested to ‎evaluate the thermal performance of the stove. The performance of the stove was ‎compared with that of traditional coal stove and conventional kerosene stove. The results ‎obtained showed a better performance of the improved coal stove in terms of cooking ‎duration and specific fuel consumption than that of the traditional coal stove and ‎kerosene stove. The results also showed that the improved coal stove with coal burning ‎rate of 0.15 kg/h can handle fuel more efficiently and economically than traditional coal ‎stove, which has coal burning rate of 0.20 kg/h. The thermal efficiency of improved coal ‎stove was found to be 42.6%, whilst those of kerosene and traditional coal stoves were ‎‎40.5 and 28.2%, respectively‎
