Two innovators hailing from Kano State, Hassan Muhammad Nawad and Hussaini Muhammad Nawad, have unveiled an ingenious cooking stove. This unique stove harnesses the power of both petrol and water, granting it an exceptional cooking endurance of over five hours.
In a recent interview with reporters on a Saturday, the twins shed light on the inspiration behind their innovative cooking stove. Their motivation, they explained, stemmed from a deep-seated desire to channel their skills and creativity into the development of a practical solution that could alleviate everyday challenges and contribute positively to economic growth.
The battery-powered stove is engineered with an intricate system. It relies on a battery-operated engine to facilitate the seamless combination of water and petrol, resulting in the efficient generation of the requisite heat for cooking.
Hassan mentioned that the concept of creating the stove had its origins approximately five years ago when they were still in primary school.
He said: “I have been thinking of how gas is used to produce fire for cooking, and the possibility of doing something that will even ease the process by using an electronic method to provide the fire through the use of water and petrol. We started from there, and here we are today.
“However, in this case, the petrol and water will not reduce, A litre will take months without even reducing. You can only change it if you notice that it has turned black, which can take almost a year.
“The battery and small engine attached will just propel the water and petrol to give a flammable air which will give the fire,” he explained.
The other twin, Hussaini, also explained that “The water is not normal water, it is mixed with alum and salt. Inside the box, you will see a small engine that provides the wind that passes through the water and petrol.”
He said with the present economic situation of the country, their initiative will create employment opportunities.
“We want to initiate a transformation among the youth circle in northern Nigeria. We noticed that we are being left behind, but we have the talent. All we need is to be productive enough so that we can create employment opportunities and provide sustainable and easier means of living for people.”
