The Cobb has been developed into its present form from an electricity-free cooking system for rural areas in Africa, getting its namesake from the dry corn-cobs that were used as its fuel source. Now using coals, briquettes or their own ‘cobblestone’, food is isolated from the coals so there are no flare-ups or smoke. It contains a metal basket for the coals, sitting inside a stainless steel bowl, where the firelighters sit beneath, all encased within the outer shell that stays cool when in use. There’s a range of accessories you can buy for different types of cooking too.
