Our stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. It’s easy to light, fast to boil and clean to use.
A unique gasification and secondary combustion process lets our stoves achieve a highly efficient and more complete burn. This means you’ll use fewer twigs to achieve a boil. It also produces less smoke.
The Solo Stove only weighs 9oz and eliminates the need to carry heavy fuel canisters - a great way to lighten your load. It also nests in the Solo Stove Pot 900 leaving you with more space in your pack.
By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you are reducing your carbon footprint. You’ll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill.
The Solo Stove isn’t just for backpacking; its great to have on hand when you’re in an emergency or survival situation. You’ll always be able to cook and will never need to worry about running out of fuel.
How it Works
Designed with a double wall, the Solo Stove is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifer stove. The air intake holes on the bottom of the stove channel air to the bottom of the fire while at the same time, channels warm air up between the walls of the stove. This burst of preheated oxygen feeding back into the firebox through the smaller holes at the top of the stove causes a secondary combustion. This allows the fire to burn more complete which is why there is very little smoke during full burn. A more efficient burn also means you'll use much less wood compared to an open camp fire. The Solo Stove doesn't just burn wood. It actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice!
The Solo Stove also features a heat shield between the ash pan and the bottom of the stove. This heat shield protects the ground under the stove from scorching.
The cooking ring's angled lip also increases efficiency by directing heat towards your pot minimizing heat loss. It also acts as a windshield while still allowing oxygen to flow inward. The Solo Stove is indeed one of the most efficient wood burning stoves you'll ever own. For a visual diagram of the airflow inside the Solo Stove, click here.
Built to Last
Your Solo Stove is made by using a one piece construction process. This manufacturing process allows us to use state-of-the-art precision presses to form and shape solid pieces of high grade stainless steel. The outer shell of your Solo Stove is actually one entire piece of stainless steel with no seams or welds. The inner firebox and floating ashpan is also made using one piece construction. This eliminates the need for excessive welding and increases the overall strength and lifespan of your stove. Nichrome wire, which has a high melting point of 2552 degrees Fahrenheit, is used for the grate.

This is a compact, lightweight and very durable stove. I already had the solo alcohol burner, which works great and boils water in about 8 minutes at my altitude. The design channels the airflow and the burner or any fuels for that matter starts fast and burns hot. I have also used wood as fuel, easy starting with the right fuels starting small and working up to large pieces of wood. I really like the compact design, multifuel option all in a snazzy carry bag. I give it five stars.

While the Solo Stove is awesome, it is definitely for personal use. The Titan and campfire seem to be better for preparing food or water for several people. It is easy to use, boils water fairly quickly, and is really only limited by the user's ability to start and maintain a fire. I recommend for solo use.

I'm very impressed with this unit. Great for use when back packing or on the road biking

This is a super simple solution to the problem of lightweight backpacking stoves. No messy flammable fuels to pack!

I have one I bought a few years ago, and bought more to give to my children. When I tested this, I tested it against some other varieties of wood burning backpacking stoves. This gave off the least smoke, and contained the flame well. Some of them the flames were shooting out everywhere. The wood burned to minimal ash. It really does use the small pieces of wood well. I would highly recommend it. My next purchase will be the Campfire version. We have a big family!

The product is exactly as described and very high quality. I did not test it yet but it's clear from web site and videos that the product will work as described. I was looking for a small effective wood fuel stove that is ultralight and easy to pack. It was smaller than expected but this is a desirable issue. Very happy with my purchase. Fit and finish are tip notch and bag are very high end.

Took this on a backpacking school outing with the Colorado Mountain Club and made my meals as fast as anyone with a gas stove. The instructor was impressed-LOL

Bought on, used it, loved it. When my power goes out I can cook with the sticks dropped by the trees in my yard. How great is that? Waiting for the larger version to arrive next. I love my solo stove. Got one for a friend too.

This is a very well designed product, its light, built well and has impeccable green credentials. Used today for first time, loved collecting twigs during walk then lighting the fire to make some tea. Will never use a gas stove again, this feels as if your kind of connected to nature.

Received my Solo Stove today. I used three pine cones to boil 30 ounces of water in 15 minutes!
That's as fast as my propane camp stove! I was amazed! I will never run out of fuel again!
Service was fantastic too.
