Cooking Ring

Directs heat up and towards the center of your pot for maximized efficiency. The cooking ring also acts as a windscreen while still allowing oxygen to fuel the flame. The entire cooking ring can be packed into the stove body for compact storage.

Secondary Burn

Vent holes near the top of the burn chamber allow preheated oxygen to fuel the flame resulting in a more complete combustion and a hotter fire with less smoke.

Nichrome Wire Gate

Allows oxygen to be fed directly to embers from below. This helps to burn biofuel faster and hotter while allowing spent ash to fall out of the process.

Ash Pan

Catches loose ash and prevents it from clogging vital airflow. The ash pan also acts as a heat shield and prevents your stove from scorching the ground beneath it.


Rising hot air, and the absence of oxygen created by the combustion process, pulls air through the bottom vent holes. This air movement fuels the fire at its base while also providing a boost of preheated air through the vent holes at the top of the burn chamber.

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 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.

What other accessories work with the Solo Stove Lite?

Solo Stove Windscreens, Alcohol Burners, Tripods, 3 Pot Set and Firesteel all work great with the Solo Stove Titan.


How many people can the Solo Stove Lite cook for?

This depends on what you’re cooking but generally, the Solo Stove Titan is a great stove for 2-4 people.


What’s the difference between the Solo Stove Lite, Titan and Campfire?

Aside from weight and portability the main difference is size. The Solo Stove Lite is good for 2-4 people, the Titan is good for 2-4 people and the larger Campfire works great for groups of 4+ people.

What wood types do you recommend using as fuel?

Any dry twigs, pinecones or leaves will burn but for optimum efficiency we recommend dry hard woods. Hardwoods such as birch, maple, hickory and oak will burn longer than softwoods.


Is the Solo Stove Lite airplane friendly?

Yes! Solo Stoves, unlike most canister fuel burning stoves, can be carried on or checked in at the airport.


How do I clean and store my stove?

After your stove is cool, a quick shake will get rid of any remaining ashes left in your stove.  Place it in its stuff sack and keep it in a cool and dry place when not in use.  It’s that easy!

  1. finest set of stoves i have ever owned 5 Star Review

    I actually began my solo obsession with the Titan stove. I had just learned about the solo stove product just as the Titan came on line. The reviews at the time were very strong for the solo stove but there had been a demand for a larger stove. I must say I have backpacked through much of New England with the Titan and have been very impressed. Since moving to North Carolina I've discovered that the mountains tend to be much more wet and often when I hit campsites the fuel sources are very damp. Though I continue to be amazed that the Titan could burn albeit struggle a bit with the wetter stuff, I could still boil water. It did have me thinking that perhaps smaller was better..... So the original solo stove has joined my collection ( I was also a proud kick starter supporter of the campfire amazing car camping stove!!!!!!!) The original solo stove is half the size and weight of the Titan which has freed up much needed space in my pack. As national parks require bear canisters the weight savings is also a big help given the added weight of my canister. Very first solo stove burn was my usual single stick test, take one small branch about 3ft long. 1cm at its thickest with a few twig branches and only use this one branch to boil water. Made a small pile of 2-3inch lengths and started my stove with a petroleum cotton ball. The branch I randomly selected as very green and a bit damp still from recent rain (not soaked) but regardless the stove took off perfectly. First two minutes and very tiny twigs got the stove fired up to the secondary burn and the rest of the small pieces boiled a full pot of cold water in my new solo 900 in 6minutes. Still had five sticks from the larger end of the branch left after reaching a full boil. I own every solo stove and continue to impress other people on how well these stoves work. There are few products I camp with that routinely bring a smile to my face and continue to impress me as to how well they work. It was a leap of faith at first when I decided to give up white gas and isobutane now looking back I can't imagine why I would have ever had any doubt .

  2. Awesome Stove!!! 5 Star Review

    Wow! This stove is top of the line in quality and ease of use! Light and can be used with alcohol stove or Sterno. Charcoal works great with them too! You'll be amazed how easy it is to start charcoal in this stove! Alcohol or natural fuels will burn hot. Sterno and charcoal burn much lower and work great for slow cooking. I turned right around and bought the Campfire to use for car camping!

  4. Great Father's Day present for my dad. 5 Star Review

    I bought this for my father for Father's Day. I gave it to him early because he went camping this week and he loved it. It works great and he didn't have to carry any kind of fuel to use it.

  5. A must have tool for the outdoorsman. 5 Star Review

    Purchased an original Solo Stove at a gun show about 3 years ago, while the patent was still pending. Have recently purchased nearly the whole collection.

    Got the Titan, love it.
    Got the Campfire, love it.
    Found that with the thermal volume, the Campfire works best with the Solo Tripod. Utilizing the two pot system you are able to store a Solo Stove INSIDE of the Campfire version, inside of the 2 pot set, and toss the collapsed tripod into the pan stuff sack to make a very nice 2 burner, 2 pot cooking system.

    Carry no fuel, superior...

    10 out of 10.

    PS, Still waiting to purchase the 1800 series pot for my Titan, once it again becomes available.

    Excellent design, materials, support and delivery.

    What are you guys coming out with next?
    Can't wait...

  6. Excellent quality; beautiful design; incredible performance! 5 Star Review

    I recently purchased a Solo Stove and matching 900 pot. Could not believe how small, light and well made they are. I heated some water for morning coffee using scraps of wood from my workshop. Vigorous boil in 7:00; followed that by cooking some scrambled eggs for my wife-delicious! That evening sat out on the patio with the fire blazing enjoying a glass of wine; can't believe how cool this stove is! Can't wait to get it out on the trail in the beautiful Cascade Range of Central Oregon.

  7. Solo Stove and 900 pot 5 Star Review

    I use the Solo Stove and Pot 900 to be a training aid for our Scout troop as one of the many stoves you can use to cook hike food. The Solo Stove and Pot 900 is always an impressive training tool.
    On hikes the Solo Stove and Pot 900 always gain some comments by others by the ease of use and how well it cooks with out having to carry fuel with you.
    I myself am so impressed with this little stove I was going to buy the Titan but found the Campfire instead with its pots. I am awaiting its arrival

  8. Well made, fast and hot stove 5 Star Review

    I purchased this stove just prior to going on a three trip. Dry twigs lit right up and I had 30 ounces of water in a 900ml pot boiling in no time. I did not itme it, but, my friend had a aluminum pot of smaller size set in hot coals and this stove blew it away.
    Watch the video on longer burning time by stacking the twigs in the stove.
    Awesome stove. Light weight, strong and can be used with the alcohol burner too. This stove fit perfectly into the 900ml pot and the gas burner fit inside that. A 1/2 piece of sponge scrub pad on top with the lid cover and a home made cozy made one self contained unit.
    I would buy this stove again and do recommend it.
    A special thanks to Jeff for helping me out at a critical time. Super support.

  9. Perfect for emergency use & back packing 5 Star Review

    I bought this as well as the Solo Campfire after a lot of research for a stove that doesn't need cans or bottles of fuel. Now I will say that I do have a small back packing stove that I've had for about 5 years that uses fuel that I really like, but I wanted an alternative.

    I just did a test 'fire' on the Solo this evening and I'm VERY impressed. I used a small amount of shredded paper and some small twigs I picked up outside and got a fire going very quickly. I forgot to order the pot that goes with this but I did have the 2-pot set for the campfire so I used that with 2 cups of water and it was boiling in just under 4 minutes (3m 45s to be precise).

    I would suggest that you have some leather gloves and a multi-tool available. It makes it much easier to feed twigs in when the pot is on the stove, although it might be much easier with the regular pot.

    Overall I'm very impressed and can't wait to try out its 'big brother,' Although I'll need to gather a lot more wood :-)

  10. Enjoyable Stove 5 Star Review

    I've been using this stove for a couple of years. I'm an off and on section hiker, and I've really enjoyed this stove. It has never been difficult to use. I've been able to use it even in wet weather with just a little patience and skill. I'm a hammock camper, so I've just set up under my hammock during bad weather. I always used to worry about having enough fuel or having an equipment failure with other backpacking stoves. With just five to ten minutes of light foraging, this stove brings peace of mind and a campfire feel. One of my favorite pieces of gear.
