BURN Launches Turbo Pro for Restaurants

Last month, BURN launched the Turbo Pro, a forced-draft cookstove that burns dry and wet wood, and non-carbonized briquettes. The Turbo Pro is designed to save restaurants more money, fuel, and time.
Cooking has been very enjoyable since I got the TurboPro. It is very fast and and smokeless; our kitchen is cleaner than before. Before Turbo Pro we spent US$80 a month on fuel but now we are only spending US$35,” says Ms. Chege, one of the early adopters.

Introducing the Pro125 Institutional Stove!

“The Pro125 is a natural-draft 125 Litre institutional stove that burns both wood and non-carbonized agricultural waste and is the first mass-produced institutional stove manufactured entirely in Africa.

The Pro125 is the result of over 15 years of institutional stove development and brings a new level of performance and durability to institutional customers, backed up by BURN’s legendary customer service.”

BURN has partnered with bettervest, a German crowd funding platform, to raise over €1 million in working capital. Amounts invested will earn 6.5% interest over the 6 year life of the loan, with an additional 2% (for a total of 8.5%) granted to individuals who invest before 4 November 2020. However, there are 2 caveats: 
  1. Investments in crowdfunding projects via bettervest are currently not yet possible for citizens from the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan, due to the financial regulations in these respective markets. 
  2. The bettervest website is only in German!  If you can't speak German, please send us an email and our team will walk you through the steps. For German speakers, details zum Projekt und aktuellen Finanzierungsstatus finden Sie hier.
