Short answer...it is super efficient in fuel (wood) and time to cook scrumptious feasts!
We started out making the traditional cob ovens and still love them. It is the 3 hours of prepping the fire to generate the heat inside before to cooking, that often deters people (and us) from using the oven without a lot of prior planning.
10 reasons why we love the 'Rocket' oven:
Making a 'rocket' cob pizza oven is such a rewarding experience and we are often asked to run workshops.
Why? Well its always fun with more people and because it saves money!
You can spend 3 days with a small community, gaining the hands on experience through making one from the ground up - for just a fraction of the cost.
Seriously, the labor costs involved + the $700 for materials (cheaper if you source upcycled materials) results in the full installation costing just short of $4000. Considering its a unique and practical landscape feature that gets used often, and is one of a kind art piece, we have people requesting this often.
Usually, the kinds of people that come our way are 'doers' and like to make things themselves. We love that and are eager to share our knowledge and skills, which is how Organic Motion has grown into delivering workshops as much as designing abundant edible landscapes for individuals or communities.
It makes sense. For the $300 course fee, you get the D.I.Y manual and the know how to make your own, saving thousands in 3 days of workshop'ing in a fun hands on classroom.
