The Beginning of the Tri-Star Cooker
Declan Crosse RIP
The idea for the Tri-Star Cooker came when Declan Crosse (RIP) seen imported European wood pellet cookers being installed in Irish homes as a replacement to an oil or solid fuel cooker. However European models weren’t specifically designed to suit Irish homes where traditionally our ceilings are lower than continental Europeans, and the ovens tended to be smaller than we would desire. Declan stuck with the idea and designed several models of wood pellet cookers until he finally developed the Tri-Star cooker. This cooker was finalised and to be tested in Czech Republic to ensure it met European Standards on safety. Declan suddenly and sadly passed away after developing the Tri-Star Cooker! Declan’s legacy will live on in WoodCo and we are honoured to bring his invention to the marketplace!
Will it suit my house?
Looking similar to current solid fuel cookers, the Tri-Star will look exactly the same, with the flame visible from the front glass. The hopper and boiler are hidden from view so modern homes can enjoy a prominent centrepiece in the kitchen without burning dirty fossil fuels and being labour intensive. The Tri-Star Cooker has capacity for enough wood pellets to last 5 days depending on individual usage. With efficiencies of 91%, there is a small ash plate underneath the burning pot which needs to be emptied every 5 days or every week, again depending on usage.
You can buy wood pellets in small bags (10kg or 15kg) or have a large storage hopper external to the house and get them blown in to this. Many people buy the wood pellets by the tonne bag and store this in a dry environment. There are three main providers in Ireland of wood pellets, these are Balcas, Leinster Pellets and Laois Sawmills.
