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.

Airflow

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 pot works best with the Solo Stove Lite?

Our Solo Stove Pot 900 is the companion pot set for the Solo Stove Lite. The stove nests inside this pot for compact storage.

What other accessories work with the Solo Stove Lite?

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

 

How many people can the Solo Stove Lite cook for?

This depends on what you’re cooking but generally, the Solo Stove Lite is a great stove for 1-2 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 1-2 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. love it! 5 Star Review

    Fast shipping, great customer service, nifty little stove. It is exactly as described: lightweight for a sturdy steel product and as easy to use as is shown in the videos. Yes, your cooking cup/pot will get soot on it, and yes there is a slightly different smell emitted than an open pit fire. Boiled water faster than my MSR pocket rocket!

  2. I absolutely love this stove 5 Star Review

    I used to carry more weight in fuel than I now carry for my cook system. No fuel to spill/leak into my backpack. No canister to dispose of. Never run out of fuel. No hissing blue flame, just a quiet crackle and glow of a natural wood fire. I bought my first one over a year ago, and have cooked many meals on it. It is by far my favorite camping stove. I also own the Campfire model for car and canoe camping.

    When it has been raining and I cannot totally depend on dry wood, I carry an alcohol stove I nest inside the Solo Stove, and the stove works well as a wind break and a pot stand for the light alcohol burner. This adds 8-9 oz including fuel, doubling the stove system weight, but adds versatility, and it still comes in at or below a canister stove set up.

    The gasification really works, and the efficiency of this stove is amazing. A small handful of pencil sized twigs will bring a liter of water to a boil swiftly and be reduced completely to a white ash that scatters with no trace and no chance of a burning ember left behind.

    I have given 3 as gifts, and have a second in my "get-home-bag" I carry in my vehicle. I am a big fan of this stove and company.

  3. Solo Stove Lite 5 Star Review

    I recently purchased this Solo Stove Lite and have only been able to use it a few times so far. It is just a great little stove. If it is loaded like a TLUD it gets a pretty long burn time without having to continue to add fuel. I use to make both hobo stoves and gasifier wood stoves out of cans lol and this is the first factory unit I have had and it is really a amazing little stove. My last use of it I was able to boil water for coffee, then fix a pot of soup on one load of wood. The gas ports fired in a amazing short time and continued a very clean burn until the end. This showed me that the gasification of this stove is about as perfect as one can get. Good job Solo Stove. I wish I would have had one of these when I use to go camping so much but it makes a great little back up stove in case of prolonged power outages. In todays world we just never know what could happen especially with storms . It is a must have in my opinion for every household. My only suggestion for someone thinking about buying one would be to not to wait. You will get a lot of use out of it and if you are feeding several then consider getting the larger Titan. Glad I don't have to use cans anymore . lol

  4. One branch equals one meal 5 Star Review

    It takes about one thin fallen branch to cook your food. Pick up the branch from under a tree, around three feet long, then break it into 2-3inch pieces. Put the big pieces in first, followed by the small pieces, up to the bottom of the holes. Make a tidy tinder pile on top of that without covering the holes, and light it off. Once the tinder has set the twigs below it on fire, put your pot on. By the time your food has cooked, the fire will have died down. Eat! Then dispose of your now-cold ashes.

    Since I bought my stove, I've been cooking my breakfast on it on the weekends to get familiar with it. I bought the stove, pot, and windscreen. Trust me, you'll want the windscreen! Once the fire burns out, all that's left is fine, white ash. When the stove is running full bore, the bottom is barely warm. Another thing is that when it's packed, you can put some of your fire-making stuff between the stove and the pot lid, like a ferro rod and a small pocket knife.

    I like it. It just does what it says on the tin!

  5. great alternative to canned fuel 5 Star Review

    Although you need canned fuel for high altitude adventures, this is a great stove to teach the values of resourcefulness, preparedness, survival, and responsible stewardship to the earth. Well done, lads.

  6. 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 .

  7. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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...
