What do we do?

Buckner R & D invents and creates innovative heating and cooking systems. These products are the most unique and versatile systems developed in over 40 years.

Sustainable & Affordable

As our forests, oil and other energy sources decrease, corn is replenished annually and is a risk managed world commodity.

Meet the Inventor Carrol Buckner

In 1975, Carrol Buckner invented the legendary Buck Stove, a new wood-burning stove including a three-speed motor, making the pot-bellied stove obsolete.

Ten years later, Carrol went on to invent the corn burning stove.  Technology that provided a safe, clean, affordable heat from America’s fastest growing renewable source of energy, shelled field corn kernels.  A corn stove that is still heating many homes today.

We Call it Buckner Heat

Our corn stoves, made over 20 years ago, are still being used in homes today.  Our units are UL listed and EPA exempt.

Our goal is to protect the industry and the people shopping in the industry.  Our designs have been patented from day one.

IMPORTANT: Since the introduction of the corn burning heater, many new manufacturers have come on line due to the value of the renewable energy source and growing marketplace.

Although many look alike, please be cautious when purchasing.  There are countless “new” companies trying to produce copies of the original.  Their product may not operate as expected due to engineering and design changes without them knowing.  There is a lot to know about burning corn.

Regardless of your choice, Buckner Research and Development will be happy to help in any way we can.  In our efforts to keep the industry honest, and the shoppers safe and well-informed, we will be happy to answer your questions about other units to the best of our knowledge. Our designs have been patented from day one.

Our continuous testing and endless research have opened the door to this exciting industry, and we look forward to bringing new products in the future.
