With the nights getting cooler and the holidays right around the corner, we shouldn’t let the chill prevent us from discontinuing our social lives after the sun goes down. That’s why the trusted folks at Solo Stove, the makers of their compact wood-burning stove for cooking, are now offering a much larger version that’s purposed to keep family and friends warm thanks to its unique fire pit design.
Each element of the bonfire is built out of high-quality 304 stainless steel. It was designed with a double wall to maximize airflow during the burning process making it incredibly efficient thanks to the bottom holes allowing oxygen to feed the fire from below, then channelling warm oxygen up between the walls of the stove, feeding back into the fire creating a more full and complete burn. The end result is less firewood needing to be burned along with less smoke in your eyes. And since it’s a self-contained fire pit, all ash is caught in the bottom tray, making it usable on grass, a porch, or patio. The Solo Stove Bonfire is available for reservation on Kickstarter and is slated to retail for $279. [Purchase]
