This eco-friendly hardwood charcoal is fired in specially made kilns to give a hotter burning coal. Sustainably harvested on a managed conservancy near Nakuru, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this charcoal go back to the local community to promote reforestation projects.
The perfect fuel to roast, toast, grill or bake in your Cookswell Oven!
Like everything else, your Cookswell Jiko deserves regular care and maintenance. Using the right products extends the lifetime of your jiko and keeps it looking like new all year-round.
We are proud to offer an eco-friendly cleaning solution that works well to keep your investment and our beautiful Kenya in tip-top shape. This trio of eco friendly, biodegradable products is specially formulated by the amazing team at Grounded Kenya. We believe that harmful chemicals should not be applied to food or even the tools that you use to prepare your meals.
The trio includes:
A spray bottle of natural, Kenyan-made soap that works well as a regular application after food prep is completed. This rinses off well and is free from any soapy residue or fragrance.
A citrus-based degreaser that cuts through fat and oil, returning your jiko to a beautiful shine after a busy nyama choma service.
A natural scouring powder that is perfect for deep cleans, getting any grime out of crevices and hard to reach areas.
Our charcoal lighter chimney is the easiest, quickest & cleanest way to light charcoal for your jiko. Simply fill the Chimney Starter with your choice of charcoal, place newspaper underneath the grate and light it on fire. The fire rises through the holes in the grate and the “chimney effect” causes the charcoal to light from the bottom all the way up to the top. In just 10 – 20 minutes your charcoal will be hot and ready. Carefully pour the hot coals into the clay liner of your Cookswell jiko and you are ready to go!
Seedball in style with our one-of-a-kind beaded slingshots. Hand beaded by expert Masai ladies near Amboseli, this is sure to set the style for your next tree planting activity. Included is one kilo of indigenous tree seedballs, which is almost 600 tree seeds!
Steps to successful seedballing:

2: Get your fancy slingshot at the ready, aiming to plant trees
3: Throw … wait… and drop a map pin so you can check back later to see where your trees grow.
