Better than wood: Toyota introduced a hydrogen stove

11.52 million: this is how many cars Toyota and its subsidiaries will build in 2023. Despite being the world's busiest automaker, the Japanese giant still finds time to explore non-automotive areas.

It unexpectedly built what it claims is the world's first stone oven, which runs on water. This is reported by Motor1.

Toyota teamed up with Japanese gas appliance manufacturer Rinnai to build it for the Japan Mobility Expo. The stone oven was used to serve visitorsnot only with freshly baked pizza, but also with croissants. This proved successful, especially among children. Toyota employees built the oven and now use it to make pizzas and croissants during the workday.

Hydrogen has a high combustion temperature. During combustion, it combines with oxygen, forming steam, thanks to which the dishes become crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. For example, let's take such products as mushrooms and vegetables. While these ingredients tend to dry out over wood or charcoal, hydrogen cooks them faster, leaving them packed with moisture and great flavor,
the company says.

Inspired by the success of the hydrogen stone stove, Toyota continued to build additional hydrogen stoves. This is how the hydrogen grille appeared, which was later used at various motorsports events held under the auspices of Toyota. Soon after, the company's employees also built a kamado.

After Volkswagen's curry sausage, Bentley's honey and Peugeot's pepper mills, Toyota's hydrogen stone stove appeared. Of course, you can't buy it, but the next time you're at a car show in Japan, you might be able to eat a pizza or croissant made with it.

You can from it's safe to say that the company's hydrogen efforts haven't paid off in terms of sales, with Toyota even admitting that the Mirai “wasn't successful”. Despite this, she does not give up this technology. Not only is the Mirai still on sale, but the Crown sedan is also offered in Japan with a hydrogen powertrain. Additionally, engineers are exploring hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines with the GR Yaris H2 and GR Corolla H2 prototypes.

There is also the GR H2 Racing, a hydrogen-powered racing car concept that will compete in a new class H2 at Le Mans later this decade. Toyota has an ongoing partnership with BMW, which is one of the few automakers that believes there is a future for hydrogen-powered vehicles in the automotive industry.
