For low-income homes in developing nations, an improved cooking burner is the most practical solution to minimize indoor air pollution. This research was carried out in a rural region of Khipro City in Pakistan's Sindh province. The thermal efficiency and water boiling tests were carried out on the upgraded cooking stove that was designed. The results of the experiment are equivalent to those of published research. The enhanced cooking stove is made of mud and has design parameters of 10-inch height, 16-inch width, and 32-inch length. A twin mouth cooking burner with a chimney to extrude the generated gases is the design. The designed ICS was tested using a water boiling test (WBT) and found to have a fuel consumption of 293 g with 30% efficiency, which is comparable to the claimed efficiency of ICSs. The use of comparable stoves can considerably reduce the quantity of gases produced by cooking, resulting in a healthier lifestyle.
