Techno-Package for Innovated Fuel-Efficient Oven

Arque G. Beduya

Abstract: This study was a charcoal oven innovation.The research was conducted in Poblacion, Danao City, Cebu. Its aims were to produce a fuel-efficient, ergonomically sound, and portable oven suitable for the needs of mobile bakers, specifically rice cake vendors; it examined the acceptability of the innovated fuel-efficient oven. There were two (2) respondent groups involved in this study: the 10 bakers and 10 experts. It used the descriptive method of research. The questionnaire was divided into two (2) parts; the first part was rated only by the experts because it delved into the acceptability of the technical requirements in the design, tools, equipment, and materials needed, ergonomics, and safety. The result concluded that all of the design requirements were met. In the second part of the questionnaire, both the bakers and experts evaluated the acceptability of the oven as to its relative advantage, compatibility, simplicity, trialability, and observability. The average weighted mean for the bakers was 4.84-highly acceptable, whereas for the experts it was 4.75-highly acceptable. The responses of the two (2) groups were compared using a t-test. The result revealed that the .23 computed p-value was greater than the alpha level of 0.05. Therefore, both bakers and experts had similar perceptions of its acceptability. It was concluded that the innovative, fuel-efficient oven was adaptable to both bakers and experts. It is thereby recommended that the innovative fuel-efficient oven be adopted.
