At Solavore™, we believe that cooking fuel should be healthy and as abundant as sunlight.

The preparation of food using heat is the most elemental of human endeavors. Cooking sustains our bodies, nourishes our souls, unites us around a common hearth. In a world of infinite richness and variety, cooking is a common thread stretching across time and cultures.

Every oven purchased gets us one step closer to putting out a wood-fuel fire somewhere in the world.
