ISSF Media Release: Clean Cooking with Stainless Steel

22 Oct 2014

The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) has launched a new publication on Clean Cooking with Stainless Steel.


Chronic exposure to smoke from traditional cooking practices is one of the world’s biggest – but least well-known – killers. According to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (, nearly 3 billion people in the developing world cook their food and heat their homes with traditional stoves or open fires. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 estimates that exposure to smoke from the simple act of cooking is the fourth worst risk factor for disease in developing countries, and causes four million premature deaths per year – exceeding deaths attributable to malaria or tuberculosis.


This new brochure from ISSF explains why stainless steel is part of the solution for this problem. It highlights the health and environmental effects and then introduces different kind of alternative stoves that can be used like forced air stoves or solar cooking stoves.

The brochure can be downloaded for free from the worldstainless website. Click here.
