Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Great heat output and great fire experience. Double-wall design maximizes airflow and burning process. Bottom vent holes let oxygen feed the fire while channeling warm oxygen between the walls of the stove and back into the fire. Efficient burn means little to no smoke. Singular construction requires no setup. Heavy-duty carry case included. Measures 14" H and 19.5" dia.
Starting a fire is easy with good kindling; just build a tee-pee or cabin with small fuel and light it. We had a good blaze in minutes, and then we added some wrist-size branches. The fire soon roared.
Setting everything up and packing it away after use can be done in less than a minute
It’s wonderful because you can sit people around the Bonfire without having to move constantly to get away from the smoke every time the wind shifts. Since the fire burns hotter, the Bonfire reduces the wood inside to ash, so there are no burnt and blackened logs to clean up afterward.
One of Solo Stove's key features is their patented air-intake system that allows for hotter air to feed the fire, causing a "secondary combustion", resulting in a hotter fire - and less smoke.
Stainless steel construction - Made to last longer than you will

What reviewers didn't like

Prone to rust, so be sure to get a cover to keep water out. Consider drilling drainage holes in the bottom.
The don’t-touch-it facet is was one thing we didn’t think about before testing — once this thing is lit, you’re committed for a while. That’s fine at a campsite or in a back yard. But some kind of handle or way to grasp the hot fire container would improve the product in case you need to douse the blaze early and move on.
The bottom container doesn’t separate from the main unit which makes cleaning more difficult than other models, but scooping out the ash is still an easy task.
In addition, the exterior sides of the can get very hot to the touch, so you’ll want to supervise children so they don’t get burned.
Even then, I'd only recommend cooking in pots or pans, not directly over the flame
