I just realized I should be posting my review here, instead of in the DVD's sales thread. So, here's my review:

I give this video 9.5 out of 10 acorns!

I really liked the how it showed three different builds, and I especially loved the detailed instructions done by Tyler Morrison. About half of the video is him building the entire oven potion of the rocket oven. He goes over each step of the build, explaining how and WHY to do each step in the build. And, then you see the entire process of him building it. I really, really appreciated this, and I wish there was a similar instructional section for building the rocket stove riser underneath. Thankfully, I think there's more information to be found elsewhere on how to build the riser, and the riser build is not as complicated as the rocket stove. But, if I were to improve this video, it would be by having Tyler explain how to make the riser as well. I also wish there was some instructions on how to make the stand, but I'm thinking that might be easy for someone with welding knowledge to do?

For those wondering if this video is kid-friendly (aka, does it have any flavorful words in it); it IS kid friendly! The "worst" word in there is one "darn"--so it's definitely a video you can watch with your kids around. My 6 year old actually watched the whole video with me (he got a bit impatient with Tyler's segment, because my 6-year old's attention span isn't that good. My son just wanted to see the building with less of the explaining, while I really appreciated those explanations!). And my 3-year old enjoyed watching parts of it, too. I've heard other's of Paul's videos have words I don't need my kids repeating just yet, this video is free and clear of that.

All in all, if you are a visual learner and hesitant to try to build a rocket oven, you will really appreciate this video.
